Are the DIY places shut down too?

No why ?... Ive purchased what I need at Hardwarehouse.

I appreciate that you have ALREADY purchased for your project. I was simply suggesting an alternative for the next time? I have found they are a handy and quick alternative to the main hardware stores and they have branches just about everywhere.

I've found stuff in Mr DIY that other places didn't have, in my case it was long (tandoor long) barbie skewers.

 

But the thread topic is "Are the DIY places open today" (that would include Mr DIY) 🙂

I do find Mr DIY handy for those days when I need something minor/disposable and I have seen screws there but I needed to buy atleast 500 screws and they only sell by the small baggie where as Hardwarehouse I can buy by the box.

 

Its more of an effort for me to go Mr DIY than hardwarehouse, as there is a hardwareghouse near my work and I can pop over during my lunch break.

Thai Watsadu obviously closed in dedicated areas.

22. March until 12. April (for now).

It's in Thai but more than clear.

Surprising that it seems to include Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat).

Not only Bangkok metro area.

Oh, you mean "today".  That just seems too obvious.  Maybe it's a trick question.  😎

As linked by @KhunBENQ Thaiwatsadu are closed (branches affected - Thai Watsadu, Sukhaphiban Branch 3, Nong Chok, Nawamin, Rama 2, Bang Bua Thong, Bang Na, Mahachai, Pathum Thani, Bang Phli, Chaeng Watthana, Rangsit, Chaiyapruek, Lam Luk Ka, Om Noi, Pak Chong and Nakhon Ratchasima).

 

One would assume that the others will be too.

We slowly seem to be getting some answers. I suppose if nobody is venturing out, we won't know.   Apart from Thai Watsadu, there is Homeworks, Global House and Home Pro amongst many others.

Drove by Megahome just north of Future Park. Looks deserted. So add that to the list of closed hardware stores.

 

I would guess that while Lotus itself could remain open, all of the other shops in its orbit are closed. So I suspect Mr. DIY is shutdown.  You'd have to go into a Lotus to check though.

The BMTA announced that non-essential shops and malls should close. I haven't read about any nearby provincial authorities making the same call. The government still hasn't made up its mind whether to call a nationwide closure of non-essentials.

 

Not having clue where Crossyville is, maybe go and have a look?

 

If and when the shutdown does hit the DIY shops, one needs to improvise and start scavenging screws from existing installations. For example, there's at least half-a-dozen 'spare' screws in each pair of wood door hinges and maybe a dozen if you remove the door completely.

 

This 'outside the box' DIY tip brought to you by the letters N and L.

Although this post is a little 'tongue-in-cheek' there is some good advice.

 

The doors - and I guess most poster's doors are the same - have four hinges with four screws in each. Just do the following: remove three from the bottom hinge, two from the next up, two from the second down  and one from the top. Do that to four doors and you have 32 screws.

That would be my go-to place, glad I didn't bother looking 🙂

Yet just over the border in Ayutthaya it’s business as normal, queues to get in the City Park Mall, Big C complex car park packed and Global House must be having a sale ! judging by the number of cars !
