Retailers scramble to keep up with demand for patio heaters


As the weather gets cooler and COVID-19 cases start to surge again, more and more Canadians are looking to extend patio season by adding a heater to their outdoor space.

According to the Retail Council Canada, the demand for patio heaters has risen so much that retailers have been struggling to keep them in stock.

The council’s vice-president of public affairs, Kal Littler, says the products “have been flying off the shelves,” with demand coming from both commercial and residential customers.

One Toronto mother says she had to visit several retailers in order to find a patio heater in stock.

Catherine Miller Mort says many of the smaller, electrical models were sold out.

Retailers including Home Depot and Canadian Tire confirm they’ve seen increased demand.
