Stine says that it will provide its associates with additional payments for working through COVID-19.

The home improvement company announced August 12, that full-time associates will receive $250 in supplemental pay while part-time associates will receive $125.

Those payments will be made on Friday, August 14.

The additional "Pat-On-The-Back-Pay" began earlier in 2020 and was a temporary $2 per hour wage increase for associates who worked during the stay-at-home order from March 24 to May 17.

"The last few months have been trying on our associates," said Dennis Stine, CEO for Stine Home & Yard in a press release. "The Stine family, leadership team, and I are grateful for all of their hard work and dedication to our customers and the communities they serve during these stressful times."

Stine says the company continues to follow all Centers for Disease Control safety guidelines by working to provide a safe environment for both customers and its 800 associates.

Stine began in Sulphur, Louisiana in 1946 and has 11 locations throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.
