A hardware store in New York City has come up with a unique solution to help customers find the right facial covering during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Brooklyn-based shop, called Home Depot, started offering free facial reconstruction services to customers who were having trouble finding masks that fit properly. The idea came about when the store's owner, John Smith, noticed that many customers were struggling to find masks that fit comfortably over their noses and mouths. Some masks were too tight, causing discomfort, while others were too loose, allowing air to escape. Smith, who has a background in construction, decided to use his knowledge of materials and tools to solve the problem.

He began offering customers the option to have their facial features measured and a custom mask made based on the measurements. The process involves using a 3D scanner to create a digital model of the customer's face, which is then used to create a mask that fits perfectly. The service has been a hit with customers, who appreciate the personalized fit and the convenience of having a custom mask made on the spot. Smith hopes to expand the service to other Home Depot stores across the country and believes that it could help many people feel more comfortable and protected during the ongoing pandemic.
