To raise public awareness about lead poison hazards associated with home repair/remodeling projects, we brought the program to the audience. We conducted outreach in large retail home centers. While we found store managers interested and supportive, it was nevertheless very difficult working with them, due to their hectic work situation. Nevertheless, we managed to conduct outreach in 22 of 23 stores approached and had the unexpected opportunity to provide staff training, as well. This article discusses the difficulties we encountered and the solutions we developed. It should be of value to those planning programs in large retail outlets.
