Are the DIY places shut down too?

Recommended Posts

Last night, I called Home Pro's call center and was told in EN that all but three of their BKK stores would remain open.

 

Today, my wife called the same Home Pro call center, for something related to her job, and tells me they told her all the HomePro stores in BKK are closed.

 

It would be kinda nice if they could at least get their act together a little bit....  :ph34r:

There's no map per-sé - shutdown affects Bangkok

 

Certain types of business, (they've all been listed very clearly) and locations, eg shopping malls, are affected. <trolling comment removed>

 

If your DIY shop, or any other shop, is in a mall then it should, obviously, be closed, if it's not then there's no reason for it to be closed.

BUT, as has been noted in this thread, all the big-name DIY places in Bangkok and surrounding provinces, even those outside the malls, are indeed closed and have announcements on their websites to that effect.

Global House here in Buriram was open for business as usual a couple of days ago. Hope to go back to get some more stuff for our developing "farm project" out in the country. Everything else seems to be operating as normal here except for the closure of the outdoor, farmers markets.

I think just about all the DIY places have small stalls just outside selling plants, or furniture, etc......so i think that would put them in the same category as malls, rather than stand alone places. And they would also come under the department store category, which means they should be closed.

why not buy screws off online shopping sites E.G LAZADA??

Good luck with ordering from Lazada.  I have had 4 orders refunded in the past week and a half. Stuff comes from china so maybe they will ship and maybe they can't. Though refund was quick. My guess is that we will have to see what actually happens with the post office

Korat yesterday - Homepro closed, Do Home closed, all the small Thai hardware stores I saw are also closed.  <deleted> off because just moved house and have curtains with no curtain poles, a water tank but no pump, loads of kitchen and bathroom accessories to be attached to the wall but no drill as mine was stolen lost during the move.

There is a member quite near you who was selling bits and pieces last month, try contacting him and see if he’s got the bits you need. You may just be in luck.

I have had a Chinese origin order delivered in the last couple of days, the other orders are coming, and have come, from Thailand.

 

just as an extra safety precaution I’m signing using a 99% alcohol wipe between my finger and the phone screen, and wiping down the packaging as well if it’s plastic.

Today March 23 in Buriram Ruangsangthai Home Builders Merchants is open normal hours. They also sell on lazada and ship over 40 packages a day to buyers via Lazada. I see a load of Daikin Inverter Air Conditioners being delivered to a Buriram house estate project, a Big Wood Dust Collector at the front door, and Milwaukee Power Tools in the showcase area.  They check customer and employee temperatures at the front door. Hardware House is also a good place to buy tools on line or at one of their retail stores. Mr. DIY in Taweekit Supercenter is where I buy cat toys and dog water bowls.

the question is how far out does the shutdown zone extend?

is there a map?

are you going to be asked why you are out? groceries and pharmacies shopping only.

 

Where did they close down hardware stores?

The most ridiculous sight I've seen for a while.

 

At Tesco Lotus Rangsit Klong 4. First, I can confirm for Crossy, Mr. DIY's are closed. In fact, everything in Lotus that is not a pharmacy or food stall is closed. That includes banks. Restaurants are open, but only for take away. Honestly, I couldn't believe that MK even bothered. Who orders MK for takeaway? 6 people just standing around doing nothing. However, the truly ridiculous part is that Lotus has actually roped off all the aisles that do not sell food products. Need a spoon? Too bad. That aisle is closed. If you climb under the ropes and try to purchase it anyway, the checkout staff will not ring it up for you.

 

So basically, for the next 2 weeks the *ONLY* thing you can buy is food and medicine. If you need towels, utensils or hardware supplies, you have to drive to Ayuttaya to get it.
