Halloween is expected to look different across the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, with health officials advising against traditional trick-or-treating.

But some national chains – including Lowe’s and Krispy Kreme – plan to offer alternatives.

The home improvement retailer announced Monday it will have “drive-through curbside trick-or-treating” at Lowe’s stores nationwide Oct. 22 and 29 from 6 to 7 p.m. where families “can drive up to receive candy and a small pumpkin at no cost to take home.”

Space is limited, but starting Saturday, Oct. 10, families can reserve a spot for the early Halloween events at Lowes.com/DIY, Lowe’s said in a news release, adding costumes are encouraged but not required.
