Where to buy 3M face masks online
Shop an updated list of stores that sell 3M masks online and in stores.
Important note: A spokesperson for the CDC tells Finder most people should wear cloth face masks "in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household" — especially when social distancing isn't possible.
Finder vets each mask retailer as a legitimate reseller prior to listing by confirming business and item documentation. We also request a physical sample to compare against what is advertised. We do not test any mask for its filtration capabilities, and none of the masks listed here are NIOSH-certified to our knowledge. Read the CDC's page on counterfeit respirators to learn more about NIOSH certification
Many stores are selling out of 3M masks very quickly — sometimes just as fast as they become available. Some big-box home improvement stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot may not have stock available online at all times, but they could have a small selection at your local store. Check your store’s inventory online or call to find out if there are 3M masks available for purchase near you.
Otherwise, your best bet may be to order from an online seller.

Top stores with in-stock 3M masks
Amazon now allows the sale of N95 and 3M masks on its marketplace platform. It previously banned the sale of these items due to low stock for hospital workers. However, supplies are still limited — and buying from third-party sellers can be risky.
Ace Hardware has a small supply of 3M and Makrite masks available for sale online, but these sell out quickly. Check stock at your local Ace Hardware to see if you can pick up a curbside order.

Like at other large stores, Lowe's sometimes has a small selection of 3M masks available on its website — but your best bet is to check the inventory at your local store.
Home Depot frequently runs out of 3M masks online, but some are available in select stores. Enter your ZIP code online or call your local Home Depot to locate masks available at a store near you.

3M vs. Makrite masks: What’s the difference?
3M and Makrite are two different brands that manufacture similar personal protective equipment (PPE), including several types of face masks. These masks are often used in construction, painting and other professions where small particles can be easily inhaled without protection.
Are all 3M masks N95 masks?
Some types of 3M masks use an N95 respirator to filter out 95% of airborne particles. However, not all masks made by 3M necessarily have this filter. Check the product specifications of the mask you’re looking at to determine whether or not it contains a filtration device.
