Volvo Car Open tennis tournament will press on during major stadium renovation | Volvo Car Open

Canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic last April, the Volvo Car Open tennis tournament plans to return to action in 2021, tournament director Bob Moran says.

But it will do so without use of Volvo Car Stadium, which will undergo an extensive renovation as soon as City of Charleston permitting allows. For the 2021 tournament, the Volvo Car Open will construct a temporary stadium on the Althea Gibson Club Court, which will provide seating for up to 3,000 spectators for the WTA tournament on Daniel Island.

Work on the renovated Volvo Car Stadium should be completed by the fall of 2021, making it available when the Volvo Car Open celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022, dating back to its days as the Family Circle Cup on Hilton Head Island.

“We are beyond excited with what this state of the art, world-class facility will become as a result of this renovation,”

The University of Wyoming men’s basketball team will open the home portion of its Mountain West schedule hosting Colorado State in the Border War on January 5.

The conference portion of the Cowboys schedule was released on Friday in connection with the Mountain West Conference.

The schedule is subject to approval from state, county and local officials. The conference slate features 18 games — nine at home and nine on the road, including Saturday home contests under first-year head coach Jeff Linder.

The Cowboys return four players from last season, all from the Front Range — leading scorer Hunter Maldonado (16.4 points per game), Hunter Thompson, Kwane Marble II and Kenny Foster.

Linder also added the top rated recruiting class in the Mountain

The 351-room, Marriott Autograph Collection hotel had been scheduled to reopen in 2018, but the project was delayed by construction problems and COVID-19 business restrictions.

Tornado-damaged Home Depot is rebuilt and ready to open a year later

Just shy of a year after a tornado destroyed their Home Depot, employees who escaped being hurt are ready to reopen a rebuilt store that incorporates the home improvement retailer’s latest ideas.

The new Home Depot opens Thursday at its original spot on Forest Lane just east of North Central Expressway. Ten tornadoes on Oct. 20, 2019, caused $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses in Dallas, Richardson and Garland.

Store manager Jonathan Shields said about 50 of his former employees are back, and the store has hired another 150 people and plans to add as many as 50 more.

Three of Shields’ four assistant store managers returned, including Jordan Jasper, who made the fortunate call to send his co-workers home early on Oct. 20 after hearing the weather forecasts and likely saving some lives.

Jasper was honored at a ceremony attended by 500 area Home Depot employees a

Discount chain B&M has said it will open up to 45 new stores this year after sales soared during the coronavirus lockdown.

It said its business model was “well-attuned” to customer needs, with discount goods being sold at out-of-town stores.

Retailers have had mixed fortunes during the coronavirus pandemic.

In August, retail sales were boosted by increased spending on DIY, but clothing sales still lagged.

Supermarkets and DIY stores are among the retailers that have seen high demand during the pandemic as people stocked up on food and home improvement goods during and after lockdown.

Last week, Tesco and Morrisons again put limits on the number of some items that shoppers could buy to try to prevent a repeat of panic-buying which led to shortages in March.

Rising to the challenge

B&M, which sells goods including DIY and foodstuffs, said its staff had done well to
