Caps Fans Going Nuts for Home Depot Stanley Cup Buckets
There is no shortage of stuff you can buy that has a 2018 Capitals Stanley Cup Championship logo smacked on it, but after finding regular orange buckets with that very same logo on it this past Thursday, fans started going nuts. After we first tweeted about it on Thursday, some made trips out to Home Depot specifically to buy the buckets while others ordered them online.
They are not at every Home Depot. Please call ahead of time to see if they’re in stock at your local store. They cost $7.48, which is on the high end for a Home Depot orange bucket, so it’s not exactly a bargain for a bucket. That said, it is a bargain for Caps-themed Stanley Cup gear, as most of the stuff folks have been purchasing cost a heck of a lot more than that. If anything, this is what you can carry your Stanley Cup gear in.
Here is Home Depot’s page for the Caps bucket. Again, we can’t tell you where these are located specifically, so please call ahead to see if they’re in stock.
There are no matching lids for this bucket, just the generic orange ones that are for the regular Home Depot buckets.
