Lowe's History

Lowe’s was originally founded in 1921 by Lucious Lowe in the form of Lowe’s North Wilkesboro Hardware in Wilkesboro, NC.  Lucious died in 1940 and the business was inherited by his daugher, Ruth.  Ruth sold the business to her brother Jim the same year.  Jim and Ruth’s husband, Carl Buchan, became partners in the venture after serving in World War II (1943).  Under Carl’s leadership, the store prospered.

A second location was opened in Sparta, NC in 1949.  Carl and Jim never saw eye-to-eye on many things and made a split in 1952.  Carl became the sole owner of Lowe’s.

Under Carl, the business expanded rapidly, opening 3 additional stores in Asheville, Charlotte and Durham in 1955.  The company continued to expand during the rest of the 1950′s.

Carl died in 1960.  His 5 man executive team decided to take Lowe’s public in 1961.  By 1962, there were 21 locations.

Lowe’s continued to expand and today has over 1700 stores in the US and is also expanding into Canada, Mexico and Australia.

Lowe’s is currently the second largest hardware retailer in the US behind Home Depot.  Their corporate office is located in Mooresville, NC.

Well. All these complaints are nothing compared to how the female workers at lowes in the west side of El Pado texas are. Anytime a pretty girl or American girl or white girl gets in there line or asks for something they turn there face the other way or say they don’t know. And they flirt with ur man. They flirt with every man. If there going to act like prostitutes I think the lowest line of work is not where they need to be. And they she be on the street hooking for there money since there so many crazy. They can get more attention this way ugly or pretty. The girl worker at lowes even slapped my husbands ass thinking she was playing around with him
And then gave him her number on the receipt wright in front of me. Of course were on the Juarez border. So I guess this is what u people shall expect from this lowes. Beware of ur men from this Lowes ladies. Also the females there are very disrespectful and unique educated. There managers do not vouch for the customer no matter how any complaints u tell them
The male worker are always on the female employee there.

I bought a Whirlpool Model WRF990SLAM00 Refrigerator SN K32419284 In April 2014 from Lowes for $2051. On September 23rd, 2015 the refrigerator started making strange noises and subsequently the ice maker and the freezer stopped working. I called Whirlpool service line, purchased a extended warranty plan and they sent a technician from Schofield Appliance out to check the appliance on October 1 . The technician said I needed a new main control board. October 26th , I was told that the main control board required was no longer available and that the assurance dept. would return my fee. After an hour on the phone with the scheduling department, I was told that a part did exist. I was given the new part number and that I should recall the assurance dept. When I did, I was told that the new part really was not appropriate and there was nothing that could be done to repair the refrigerator and they would return the money I paid for the service contract. I recalled customer service and spoke with Shurow. She worked with the Service Department to identify the appropriate part and have it ordered. Whirlpool promised to return my money but I have not received it to date.
Also on October 26th, I contacted Lowes of Tifton and spoke with Levonia. She said I really should be working with Lowes Service Advantage and that she would contact them for me and call me back. I waited 24 hours and called her back. She was not available. (she did call back late on the 27th. . I had moved on by then.).
Meanwhile I called Lowes Service Advantage myself and talked with Julia. She had no record of a service request but did create one. She arranged for Schofield to make a service call on October 2nd. ( Lowes claims that October 2nd is the first contact, but that is incorrect. ) This was not necessary as Schofield already knew the problem and what parts to order. On October 30th Schofield called and said they were waiting on Lowes to approve the purchase as it exceeded their allowed limit. I Called Lowes Service Advantage again and was told there was no request for special permission to purchase the part. They did call Schofield and I was informed by Schofield that the part was ordered.
Schofield is hard to contact, so on November 9th, I called Lowes Service Advantage again and talked to Chris. She had no new information so I asked that she email me a copy of the service agreement. After 3 attempts she was able to attached the correct version to an email and send it to me. She offered to send a loaner freezer out, but at that time I said it would not be necessary.
On Sunday, November 15th the refrigerator stopped completely. I called Lowes Service Advantage at 8 am on November 16th. I initially talked with Kaleaha, But immediately asked to talk to a supervisor. I got Billy. He promised to check on the parts availability , saying it would take 3 to 5 days. I asked for a loaner refrigerator and was told none were available. . I tried to call Schofield 3 straight days but could not get anyone to answer. If I can’t reach them and they are not returning my calls, I don’t believe they are talking to Lowes Service Advantage either.
Not hearing anything, but being rightfully impatient, I called Lowes Service Advantage again on the afternoon of November 18th and spoke with Supervisor Christian. She told me she would have the specialist assigned to research the case contact me. I asked for the name and address of their agent for service in Georgia. She told me I could request that info in writing.
This has been going on since September 23rd. That’s 57 days or 11+ of 3 to 5 days of checking on things.
This is the worst case of Customer Service I have ever seen. I cannot get past the front line of Lowes Service Advantage and no one cares.
This is unfair and Lowes needs to do more.

Why if your a single older woman. With no tape measure on your hip or dressed in painters pants you get absolutely no help at all!?
This is my second home I bought. My first was 8 yr ago custom built by my gc. Brother but me doing leg work and picking myself what I wanted for my home. After weeks of being ignored. I start bringing my blueprints with me and told them they were incrimadading! Why I chose lowes again for my second home improvements I’ll never know! Install is the worst! Bought Samsung washer and dryer fans lights and have a 15 percent off entire purchase. Cashier looks and inspects it while 4 people r behind me and she says WHY THIS IS A HOME DEPOT COUPON MAM. Little did I know until a week later I was at hd and they told me lowes should of honored their coupon as they usually do as the same Home Depot honors theirs! Don’t think I’ll be getting a refund though. But I will call and tell them come back and get the w.d. That was not installed correctly and had to call plumber !

On September 26, 2015 my wife and I visited the Lowes 2nd Ave Brooklyn, NY store to investigate the possibility of remodeling our 60 square foot bathroom before the Thanksgiving holiday. We met with Christine Sodden who claimed that she is the entity in charge of the Project Specialist Interior (PSI) unit at that branch and that she would be our project coordinator. We paid $91.00 to have Christine and a contractor to visit our home, discuss our needs and take detailed measurement in order to complete a scope of work and job quote. The following weekend both Christine and the contractor Michael met at our home where we discussed design ideas and timeline. A few days past, we had not heard from Christine and happen to run into her in a supermarket where she stated that she would call us the following day and that she has a good quote we would like from the contractor. The next day I went into the store and met with Christine and her assistant Nasally where Christine quoted me a price of $17,000.00. Not having purchased any materials yet, I asked if that was all labor, she said yes. I told her that $17,000.00 was too high, way more than I expected, that I have a child in college and am not looking to spend that kind of money, labor only especially. She asked what I was expecting, I stated in the neighborhood of $10-12,000.00, especially considering the size of the bathroom. Christine stated that she would speak with the contractor to see if they could come back with a better number. Within a week time span she contacted me with quotes of $15,108, then $11,900.00 which I accepted. My wife and I went into the store and wound up signing a contract for $12,352.64 for forgotten plumbing work. We then walked with Christine to show her the vanity we selected and pick out other items like toilet, sink and countertop. Christine left us with Irshad who ordered the vanity in a color referred to as Kona (espresso), a sink and toilet. We then returned to Christine, to select a countertop for vanity and finalize the executed contract and purchases with an 84 months financed payment plan. In the mean time I purchased $6,000.00 in materials, the following weeks working with Lowe’s were complete disasters from vanity cabinetry being ordered the wrong color, other scope items with lead time not ordered, work commencement dates never confirmed, a host of unreturned phone messages, a coordinator gone MIA and who maintains an arsenal of ” I didn’t know” excuses when ever asked why or how come something is completely screw-up. Lastly, after Christine the coordinator going MIA, unanswered messages, visiting the store speaking with Install Department personnel, the Install Department manager Javier, approximately one month after signing the contract at $12,352.64, I finally contacted Christine to confirm a start date if possible for a completion of work before the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m told that she forgot to include demolition removal cost in the amount of $4,700.00… I exploded; again she doesn’t know what happened. I call the install manager Javier and setup a meeting to discuss this new issue on top of all the other issues previously discussed with him that remain unsolved. At that meeting I show Javier the scope of work, my executed contract, the original contract amount, the date in which this agreement was formed and review the incompetent incidents and unprofessional services I am receiving. In addition, Lowes has the nerve to commence billing me for service and materials I have yet to receive. Javier copied my contract documents and informed me that he would have the install manager Kimberly meet with Christine, then contact me to set up a meeting. At that meeting, Christine was late more than a half hour late; I ask to review the quote I was told Christine had prepared for the meet. The document was a revised scope of work dated November 12, 2015, with ten additional added items, that not only conflicted with the original scope of work pursuant to the signed contract, but within the body of the revised document and totaling $15,625.52, smh… When Christine finally arrived, the meeting was a complete waste of time, full of “I don’t knows” a review of new conflicting issues due to the revised scope of work and an apology by Kimberly the install manager, who stated that they needed time to review Christine’s revise scope items and cost. She also stated that she would take the issue up with another manager slated to return from vacation. My wife and my time and efforts have been completed wasted; we have requested a new coordinator, that did not happen and we are continuously subject to the same incompetence, we feel intellectually insulted and unprofessionally treated for more than one month. The amazing part of our Lowes home improvement experience is that, in-store management recognizes the incompetence and continues to subject my wife and to it. I am now pleading to a higher authority with higher intelligence??? Before taking matters outside of Loews..

Do I ever have sympathy for you! I just bout a house and purchased. Washer and dryer and install . Had my new home owner coupon of 15 percent off and cashier says after inspecting it for 5 min that it was a Home Depot coupon making me feel like a idiot.
Later that week at Home Depot they told me they honor lowes coupon and lowes honors theirs.
Anyway. The installers hook up washer and dryer scratching floors and new painted walls . Hooks up hoses and says water is spraying out of spicket when he put hose on. Nothing he could do and I need to call plumber! Plumber came and said it was just a loose packing nut from where lowes tighten hose to hard. Plumber says he should of known it was lowes cause they don’t know what they r doing! That cost me another hundred.
And btw why would “two expert lowes installers come deliver in a budget rental truck

My oven will not hold temp. I called for service. They set up a time for yesterday and they did not show. They did not call to tell me that they were not coming or when they could reschedule. I called and was informed that they could not come until Nov 23. That is 2 weeks away and I will be without an oven.
If they can or cannot fix it on the 23 I will be without an oven on Thanksgiving
The service for Lowe’s stinks.
I will probably never buy an appliance from them again.
I have registered a complaint everyplace I know to.
I have the extended warranty so?


Debbie wilson November 18, 2015 at 12:54 pm

Same boat as you!
So glad I didn’t buy my floors there!
I hate stupid people. And lazy people cutting corners. And liars who never own up

today November 4 I went to the Lowes located in columbus ga. Overall it was no where close to a good experience. It all started this morning when I called to see if they had plenty of the item I wanted. I needed over 100 concrete landscaping blocks. It took me 3 times calling for someone to finally answere. When someone answered they put me on hold to go find someone to help me. After 5 minutes a man in gardening finally answered. I told him what and how many I needed to make sure they had enough before I drove out there since its a 45 min drive and even provided him a item # that my wife had gotten me yesterday. He was very rude and kept interrupting me as I was trying to explain it all. His answere was yea we might have 100. So I asked if there was anyway he could look up or call the opelika lowes incase I needed some more and his response was ” no I don’t have a computer around me and don’t have time to get to one you’ll have to call yourself. ” I was shocked by this response. When I got off work I drove up there to get the blocks. When I got to the garden section there was 2 male employees siting there talking to each other. I grabbed a cart and carried on to the blocks. I sat there and loaded up 120 3.5x 8.2 blocks that weight roughly 6 or so pounds each as they sat over there watching me continuing with there conversation. After loading all up by myself I tried pulling it to the register but because there was a slope in the section I couldn’t pull it. I then walked past them to get a different type of cart and transferred all 120 by myself yet again as they watched. NOT the first time was I asked ” do you need help with this”. I then pulled the cart to the register “walking right past one of the employees that I was talking about”, paid and made my way to my truck. I transferred all 120 blocks onto the back of my truck. My truck has a 6″ lift kit and big tires so I had to load 20 then climb up in the back move them and climb back down over and over. I did all this by myself while watching the employee carry a few hanging baskets to car for a attractive female. Which didn’t suprise me at all. I’m not usually one to complain about stuff but this whole experience was rediclous. NOT one time through all this was I asked can I help you, do you need assistance or anything. I spent $178 and didn’t even get a simple how are you doing today. I don’t really expect anything to come out of all this but figured yall should know


allen nolan November 5, 2015 at 7:42 pm

Customer service at store number 1842 is terrible. We called the store to check on microwave we bought and first was hung up on. We called back and was transferred to areas that did not have anything to do with microwaves. We then ask for manager and they never came to phone, we then hung up from local store and called corporate, lowe’s. Very disapointed in your service

Eric Herrman November 2, 2015 at 5:05 pm

Horrible lowes experience. Seems they can’t cut my shelves as they feel I’m a manufacturer instead of a homeowner!! Absolutely refused !! I showed them pictures where they go and the unites they go in but even Abe the manager at store 2583 claims I’m manufacturing ?? I’m there in a little RAV4 car but he says this is his policy !! Just bought this home in Palm desert Ca. so I go to Home Depot 1/2 mile away and the cut everything I want and I’m done !! Do it yourself store !! What crap and discourteous service !! I would think it a one off but after talking to management I’m sure it isn’t !! If I don’t get a call back on this in three days I will spread it as far and wide as it can go !! I’m retired and don’t need to be treated this way !!


Disgusted October 26, 2015 at 1:34 pm

benny October 16, 2015 at 8:55 am

recently had the most disturbing encounter at your Bethlehem, Pa Lowes while dealing with Kieth in the lawn and garden department. He was unable to meet my needs and help me so I had requested another manager but was told by Kieth that Bobby was tied up with more important matters and unavailable to help customers. He then continued with bad mouthing Mr. Eberhardt in a lousy attempt to make himself look more important. If employees talking poorly about other employees is your standard practice and a way of not taking care of customers, then I want no further business with Lowes. I will go elsewhere from now on to avoid dealing with unprofessional people like keith.

I am in the process of doing a total remodel for American Home Design and Construction Co LLC.

I have always enjoyed shopping a Lowe’s because it is always clean, and I get asked often if I need any help. However, on two occasions I wanted to go through the pro-desk, and tried to do so at your store in Shawnee, Ok. But after waiting at the desk to place a large order I found myself in the midst of a strange circumstance. There were three people behind the counter, but never once did we get acknowledged. So out of frustration we left and I told my partner I would just go to a store that wanted my business. So I went to the I-40 and Shields location this morning and gave the gentleman the order and ask him to figure it up and call me with the amount because I had to get to the job site. This evening after receiving no calls from the store, I went by on my way home and another gentleman behind the desk looked for the order information and finally found it but without any information available. I am not so sure the order was even processed like I asked him to. So I spoke with the manager and he did apologize for the inconveince but he really did not seem to be interested in my business. So I asked him point blank and looked him right in the eye. “Do you want my business or do I need to go the Home Depot now?” Actually he looked rather passive and really did not seem to care one way or the other. I left the large order with him and ask him if he would get me the information I have requested. Mainly, do you have the materials, and a what price are you willing to sell me the materials.

I am 65 years old, I worked 40 years in retail sales, I know how difficult it is to get and maintain good paying customers. I also know that if I ever treated a paying customer the way I have been treated thus far at the pro desk, they would have taken their business elsewhere.

I am writing you this message in hope your regional managers will take to heart what I am saying. Customer Service Is The Only Thing You Are Selling!

I can buy every 2×4 2×6 2×8 2×10 sheet rock insulation, garage doors and a host of other items needed to compete this $50,000.00 remodel, So I will find out tomorrow if my business is really indeed wanted a Lowe’s. All I am asking for is some information as to what it is going to cost me. Oh I almost forgot, I will also need 41 sq’s of shingles, roofing felt, and other items needed for a new roof, appliances, granite, 1600 sq ft of siding, and the list goes on.
