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.

I cannot understand how this company stays in business! I will definitely invest in Home Depot simply because a company that conducts business as poorly as Lowe’s will not prosper.

I ordered over $3000.00 worth of flooring that I was charged for over a month ago and still have not received because the delivery people will not deliver the product when they say.

This is not the first unpleasant encounter I have had with this company. Same poor service and lack of caring on behalf of employees as last year. I cannot imagine what I was thinking in using them again!!!!!

If I ran my medical practice the way they run this company, my patients would die from lack of care or concern!

From now on, it is Home Depot for any future improvements to any home or office I have.

This company is the worst. Problems with the installation of my bathroom granite countertops. Order 20″ sink and they cut the Sinks hole way to small. So I complain and they removed them. Have to cut big opening, when they return with the sinks, they only cut the opening another 1/2 inch. Really! So I brought 2 new undermount sinks from Home Depot and gave Lowes the dimensions cutout paper so they can cut the countertops to a much bigger sink. How the granite company won’t cut the new tops, unless I pay for them again. Spoke with the service manager and he saying his hands are tied. So now I’m asking for a refund and payment for the damage to my walls and the plumber who installed my faucets. Do not buy from this company, they are a joke! I will be canceling my credit card and will never shop at Lowes again…

I bought a dishwasher and want it delivered and installed.The salesman told me I would be contacted this morning to set it up.No one call I called Lowes they gave me the installing company name and number Ive called and a recording says leave a name and number they will call back.They haven’t I’d like to no when it will be done.I called Lowes back and they said the installing company had 48 hours to contact me.If I knew that I would have checked with Home Depot and seen if I could get better service.We have been Lowes customers for years and had good service until now.

I decided to do some major repairs to my home. I went in to the store and spoke with a sales clerk named Corey. He was wonderful. But from there it went downhill. The Blinds I purchased and had installed took about three weeks to get done. The problem was not with the installer Shaun He was great. The problem feel with the store. The blinds were stock blinds and just needed to be cut. Shaun had to make 3 trips to get them hung due to the store not cutting them or cutting them wrong. The store made it right with a discount but this store has some major problems. I believe when you work with people doing major things to there homes such as blinds, applicances, flooring ect. you need someone in the departments that need to know what they are selling. I have never been a person that spent to much time in Lowes because I have never had the money to do the things I am getting to do with my house. The past two months I have spent major time in this lowes trying to figure out what I wanted for my rooms. I have spoken with MANY employees only to be told “I don’t know or I don’t usually work in this department.” Most of the time they really act like they don’t want to help you. I have searched the store for my guy Corey whom seems to know about most of the departments. He is outstanding and if it weren’t for him I would never do business in this store again. However someone needs to make this store manager aware that the service sucks. The employees lie to people and some are just rude. I have tried to speak to managers only to be pushed off on others. Just this week I called the store and was told I could purchase a dishwasher, sink, faucet, and garbage disposal and have it installed at one time because it would be considered plumbing. I know the cost would be different for both but I wanted it to be done right at the same time because it is connected and I after my problem with the blinds I was just nervous. So I go into the store yesterday and start picking out my products. I go to the applicances and pick out my dishwasher then was told I could not have both installed at least they didn’t know how to do that. I would have to do the dishwasher at that desk then go back to the plumbing department and do the other. I explained I had called and they told me I could do it like that. The two employees said “ I am sorry but we don’t know how to do that.” So they called plumbing and back I went with the product number for the dishwasher because that gentleman said he could do it. Well the gentleman started the order and the dishwasher I wanted was not available anymore. I picked one that was on display. And I actually picked this same dishwasher to purchase a couple of months ago when I bought my dryer. The dryer came and was installed but kept waiting on the dishwasher and when I called a week later they informed me it was never ordered. So I thought I would try again. So he reserched the warehouse and found it no longer avaiable but there would be another model number but it would be middle of August. So back to the dishwashers I go to pick a new one. Well ended up with one for $699. The other one was $400. But I was just wanted to get out of the store so here we go Iwill purchase this one. Go back to find out no the same person can’t install them at the same time. Got to do it in two different times. Ok I guess but who knows if they will be be installed this month or next. I am telling my friends you better know what you are buying and about it before you go into the store because most employees know as much or as little as you. Maybe they need to put a sign up saying if you don’t know neither do we. I was in the flooring and looking for tile and was told I guess that will work on the wall to. Well for that kind of money I need more than a guess.

I am sick to think I finally have the money to do the major repairs and remodleing I am wanting to and can’t get the service I thought Lowes offered.. I must confess we get a military discount for my husbands retirement but is it worth it if you have to make so many trips and phone calls about the same items.

The other issue is the checkouts. Having self checkouts are great but you can’t do the discount at them and thats ok except usually that lane is the only one open so you stand in line forever. The cashier does the best they can but come on. One register is not good anytime.

Thank you for taking the time to read my concerns and anger.

A very UNHAPPY customer.

I went into the Lowes store on April 12th picked out a door. I was scheduled to have measurements done for $35.00 that was done. I ordered a front custom door paid $1,060 on April 30th, 2016 the door came only to find out that is did not fit due to measure men being measured wrong. I went back to the stir same day. The manager in Milwood said he reorder the door I waited a week no word or response as if the door had been reorderd. I came in saw the manger to complain the door has not been reordered. I had to another two days for the reordered. I was told it will be rushed? Today is July 6th still no door no call I called Lowes no can help me where my money or door HELP?

Very similar experience. We ordered a door that was not in stock, PAID for it only to find out 2 months later it was never ordered. In between we would call to check on the ETA and customer service could never give us one. Customer service explained that we never ordered and it was never paid! We were out that money because someone by the name of Dallas in the Oklahoma City Lowes off of I-240 decided to pocket the money. Obvously this is an assumption because with us paying for the door and him not actually putting in the order leads me to believe he put that money in his pocket since looking into in the drawer was balanced that night. Now, still no door! We were told it would be ordered and rushed but we cannot even get an ETA. Worst experience ever!! Door has been paid in full and still no door 4 months later!!

I have been a loyal Lowes customer for over 15 years in Snellville/Loganville, GA. My last experience with a carpet install was beyond belief. I have yet to have any follow up by CPO, my Lowe’s store in Loganville, or Kris Darby, the contractor who put in the carpet. And, if someone does call me, I want to speak to someone at the supervisory level or someone who can make a decision. I never talked to the same person at CPO and found this whole experience extremely challenging and frustrating. From ordering the wrong size carpeting; to leaving me with furniture in my family room and bathroom for almost a month; to damaging my closet wall and not telling me; to another contractor coming to repairing the wall, who was only on the job four days, and did a minimal repair job, etc. But the most frustrating part is/was lack of follow up. I was calling to check on when/how we were progressing. And please check my account. I have been doing a major project every year. And I just checked the box to contact me by email. Maybe that way I will be dealing with the same person.

Lowes in Fayetteville NC robbed me blind. .but ok.
Now in wisconsin, i went thru a painful process of trying to purchase counters. First..the quote was short from actual cost by 850.00.
Then, it took over a month to get installer in to install. THEN…they didnt finish, installed scuffed counters, cut sink hole way too big, didnt secure them or glue seams. Left me with a non functioning kitchen.
Lowes on Oshkosh said they would get them to fix it. We harrassed installer and finally got a date of today for them to come back….its MAY!
Lowes counter lady nor the manager can do anything, wont offer any kind of refund, wont even say they are sorry. They cant get installer to do the job and by the way, installer didnt show up yet. They said by 8…..
My stove and dishwasher are in the livingroom, sink is in bedroom, half my dishes are in lower level and spare room. We wash dishes in bathtub, cook in microwave.
How long am i supposed to live like this before LOWES does their job amd make this right? Wtf did i pay all that money for? Do you wonder why lowes is 2nd to a better store? I wonder how they are in #2 spot.
Come on lowes, do what i paid you for…its going on 5 months. I was quoted 2 weeks. This horrible experience is the 7th out of 8 major purchases. You dont seem to have any care for your customers as long as you get your money. Make this right. Lowes…oshkosh wi. Counters…email me and i will send pictures….PLEASE…I CANT LIVE LIKE THIS

I bought a Genarc home generator about a year ago and never beened used then when it strated up when it wasn’t needed I called Ed that sold it to me and he told me he would have someone come out and fix it. Well when the electric came out from GES in Bryant, Little Rock which is right behind Lowes he told me I wasn’t getting enough power to my house and need ed to call the power company, I call them and both time they came out there was no problem with the power. On this power line was 2 house and 2 small shops and never had a problem. Well I called Edward at Lowe’s and he sent the electrician back out and changed Voltage settings on the generator and checked for proper operation (which he could had adjusted than) and he also told me that when the home generator was install that Lowe”s did not at that time have a licensed electrician installing it. I am getting bills and phone calls from GES (Generated Energy Solutions)telling me that I owe them $307.93 and I called Edward again and he told me that he would get hold of the main person and have this taken care of which I told him that I didn’t call that electrician and that Edward didn’t tell me I was going to have to pay. I call GES and told them that I didn’t call them and they needed to get Lowe”s to fix it or take me to court. I WILL NOT PAY FOR THIS. These home generators are not cheap. Edward had been called twice from me regarding this and he still hasn’t called me back. I’m I mad H!!! YES. I will not send anybody I know to go there.

I am disabled and saw an opening for a hardware employee on Lowe’s web site. I buy a lot of items from Lowe’s and before I became disabled, worked for Lowe’s. When I went to Lowe’s yesterday and asked an employee if Lowe’s hires disabled workers, she told me “No”. Lowe’s does not hire any person who is disabled and does not even want them to apply for any jobs. Has something changed with Lowe’s since I worked for them before? We had employees that disabled and a lot of them could out sale the able body employees. The disabled employees may not be able to do some of the heavy lifting but their knowledge of the products made up the difference. Can anyone tell me what is up with Lowe’s now since this employee told me Lowe’s does not want people with disabilities applying for jobs at their stores!

I will looking for a part-time job at Lowes in Cincinnati. I don’t know the no. but it in western Hamilton county on Harrison ave. I am not complaining about not getting the job, but just the way it was handled. When I did the test I was told that I told by Human Resources Mgr. Missy Doty that I would meet the lumber dept. mgr. ( Bill ) the next day. That day, Bill, talked about the company and told me that he or Missy will call me in two or three day to tell me if I had the job. I called the store four day later to talk to either Missy or Bill and was told they was up in they was call me tomorrow. I called every day since then for a week and half and when to the store and was told they was off. This was first of April and I wouldn’t work for them now. But, I feel they should learn how to handle people and employees.

About 4 years ago I built a new home and purchased most of my materials and appliances from Lowes in Columbus, MS. One of the appliances broke down after about three months and I had a vcry difficult time getting Lowes employees to either aid me with warranty service or even provide a contact telephone number without my contacting them multiple times and a great deal of instance. The same appliance, a Bosch washing machine, is having some minor difficulty now and I have yet to receive any assistance with even the identity of a repair service. Local repair service providers have been unable to get Bosch to sell them repair parts and Lowes has yet to provide any assistance whatsoever.
After a great deal of pleading, multiple calls, and long telephone waits, I was able to get a North Carolina telephone number with a comment that this, a warranty provider, probably could provide no assistance either.
I do like shopping with Lowes as I find good and friendy in-store service (except for appliance personnel), good pricing, and excellent selections. Repair service assistance either under warranty or not has been very poor if not non existent.
While I will still shop at Lowes, I will make no further purchases of appliances or large equipment items and I shall warn my friends to this extent as well.
My advice to Lowes: DON’T SELL IT IF YOU CAN’T ASSIST WITH SERVICING IT.

I am deeply disappointed that any time served in the military that ended with a honorable discharge is not recognized but on three days of the year. These people still gave up their lives temporarily for our country. I think that the military discount should be honored for all military veterans not just a select group. I realize that it is only a 10% discount but for a consumer that can mean a lot.

I signed a contract with Lowes at 13191 W. McDowell Road in Goodyear, AZ to replace my garage door on Jan 21, 2016. The guy came out and measured on Jan 27th. He said someone should call within a week to set up a date to install the new door. After two weeks I called the store and the lady said the guy that coordinates the install would call me back that day. 3 days later I called and was told he would call me the next day. After 5 more calls I called and talked to an Assistant Store Manger last Thursday. He said someone would call me Friday or Saturday and he would get back to me at the latest by Monday. Still no call. What terrible customer service.

I work at Lowe’s and hate it and it wouldn’t even be that bad if they would just do the following.
1.The muzak sucks big time,as soon as I get in the store in the morning you hear this god awful music that can’t even be considered music that only people with low I.Q.s like.You always have it on pop and hotfm.These are the worst.Is it so hard to play classic rock or 80’s and before or even classical.I mean are you guys in bed with Viacom or something the creators of such lame channels as mtv,bet,vh1 and every garbage channel out there.Please stop making me depressed.
2.The red vests,there’s nothing like having a target on you to make irritated and annoyed.The customers constantly bother you because they leave there brains in the parking lot.I know when I go some where I don’t ask people where stuff is I use common sense and look for it.These vests have got to go or change the color how about green.
3.Controlling the air conditioning and heat from another state when the climate down here is different then what it is there is f***ing stupid.In store control of heating and air should go to the store manager.
4.The call buttons are the absolute most f***ing annoying thing in the world.Nobody uses Aol.com email anymore so why the f*** do we have to listen to some annoying voice over the pa every day.
5.Put the number of the aisles near eye level and actually put most of whats on each aisle listed like they do in the grocery store.Nobody looks up and apparently where I’m at nobody knows how to read.Constantly being asked where is this and wheres that is so f***ing annoying.Also how about putting a computer or map at the front exits that tells wheres things are.
That’s all I can think of right now not that it matters.If I ran this company I would change so much and make where it didn’t have to be so agonizing and never ending. I am an employee with a brain and anything I say will not change things that I request to be changed.Thanks for nothing.
Sincerely irritated angry employee

My mother purchased at store #2535 the following stove on December 18, 2015, she purchased a black range 278032 blk5559bp 36″ gas range, in the amount of $1,087.62 on December 27, 2015, it was delivered at the time my mom decided that is not the one she wanted and they should take it back. They told her to use it and call the store if she still didn’t want to keep the stove. On January 2, 2016, my mother and son both went to Lowes to explain that she didn’t want the stove but another one that was there and would pay the $100 difference for the stove. She was informed that she would have to pay for the newer one in full and would only get the credit on the other stove once it was delivered. First and foremost my my mother is a senior on a fixed income how do they expect her to come up with another $1,000 for a another stove. Today they picked up the stove and the gentlemen who picked up question where the replacement stove was didn’t want to leave her without a stove. She explained the situation all he could do is shake his head. Now she is sitting without stove and we have to get credited the amount.

My hug and and I went to lowes after having measurements made for blinds through their contractor. That evening we recieved a call from Holly in blinds that we needed to come in and select the blinds we need. We showed up an hour and s half after reviewing the call. Holly was not their. We told another associate what blinds we wanted and she said she would pull the blinds and write down item numbers for an estimation. I came in the following morning to a very unwelcoming and unfriendly Holly who was complaining and just downright rude. She was so upset that I was asking about the order that she walked over to the flooring department and complained to that associate. I was astonished at the lack of costumer service I recieved from this associate. We are now considering canceling g the order.

Greetings: On December 23, 2015 I purchased in Lexington, S.C. a Samsung Washing Machine and then on the Irmo store to purchase a matching dryer. On December 27, I installed the new washer. My wife commenced to wash clothes. When it got to the Rinse cycle, the machine wanted to “dance” out the door. Removed all wet clothing and tried a dry cycle. Again, it wanted to dance out the door. Something is wrong with the balancing system. I purchased an extended warranty on both units. I called Lowes, 1-888-775-6937 and reported the issue. The lady set up an appointment for December 30, 2015 from 1 to 5. She said that Golden In Home Services would be coming. I received an email from Lowes confirming the service c all. After waiting all afternoon, no one showed and still have seen anyone nor has anyone called. I made calls to Golden only to get recordings. I once again called Lowes and talked to Jessica this time,. Told her my problem. She promptly apologized for the inconvenience. She told me the next available time for service would be late next week around January 6 or 7. I told her that was unacceptable. I wish my defective unit to be picked up and also a new one replaced. She advised that someone would call me from the Lexington store. An hour later, Ashley from Lexington Lowes called me. She was apologetic after hearing what had happened. She scheduled a Saturday afternoon 1-4, January 2, 2016 for a new replacement unit and pick up defective. I’ve paid for warranty with NO SERVICE,. And still no one from Golden has even called to apologize for any inconvenience. Now we have been going to the local laundramats to do our washing. Someone needs to address this LOWES CUSTOMER SERVICE. Yes, I’m teed off. Thank you. Tim Shealy, Irmo, S.C. 29063 803-920-XXXX

I am having the exact problem with a Samsung washer I purchased October 2012 with the 4 year warranty. We have had nothing but problems with this product including a water pump that was recalled and flooded our laundry room (which was replaced with zip ties instead of bolts). Now…..the d— thing won’t spin out the clothes; it gets to the spin cycle and keeps repeating itself and then banging like it is going to fall apart. Our water bill has doubled due to the ridiculous water needed to wash just one load of clothes. Three different service companies have made visits to our home and I’m sooo sick of it! It seems like nobody knows how to fix the thing and I’m out of patience and time. I want the washing machine replaced and they keep saying that it doesn’t fall into the criteria for a new one yet. DO NOT EVER BUY A SAMSUNG WASHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I’m teed off also. Philipsburg, PA 16866

Why would Lowe’s replace your washer? It’s 3 years old. Did you purchase a product replacement contract? Samsung made the crummy machine that broke, why are you not calling them? Why would you go to the store? So if my Chevrolet breaks after 3 years, I should expect General Motors to give me a new vehicle? What world are you living in? I am a Lowe’s shopper and would be happy if idiots like you would not be in the same store as me, go shop elsewhere, they will tell you the same thing!

Lowe’s said they had to come and take measurement and will call within 24 hours.On Nov 30, 2015 two days I have not receive any calls so I call the store at camp creek in Atlanta Ga. On the 3 of Dec. I talk with the manager, he started he would call me back. No call back from no Lowe’s employment. Here it is Dec 4, 2015. No call. I just wanted to buy some flooring for my home. I feel as if Lowe’s don’t want to do business with me. Why I don’t knowu

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?

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

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

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 !!

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.

I am so furious at what happened to me and my family yesterday at lowes when we were trying to enjoy a Sunday evening out. We walked in there so my 19 month old could look at the lights they had up while my husband went to look at some materials he needed for a job the next day,after he was done he called me from outside and said he was ready so i seen the exit sign behind a return check-out area so i tried to cut through to get out of lowes while i was pushing my sons stroller a woman working there yelled and waved her hand back and forth yelling NO No No you cant go through there and put her hands on my sons stroller while he was looking up at her by the way and pushed the stroller towards me pushing us back while she was doing this i said im sorry but you dont have to be rude ” O WELL YOU CANT GO THROUGH THERE ‘ snapping her head back n forth. First of all she did not have the chains up so i didnt know i wasnt suppose to go through there i was just a customer trying to get out the store. well i came back in and my husband came back in with us and ask to speak to the manager well the time we were standing up there waiting for him she is smirking and laughing,so unproffesional who treats people like this well finally a young man came up didnt say hey how you doing whats the problem just stood there when we figured out he was the manager we explained to him that she pushed me and my kid which she should never had put her hands no where near us,well the whole time we are telling him our story she is behind him running her mouth and holding her name tag up like here get my name i dont care and the manager was letting her do it instead of telling her to please be quiet or move away and calm down.After a couple of minutes we realized that none of this was getting resolved with her acting like that so we left so Now I am wanting something to be done I should not have been treated like that i have worked in plenty of places where customer service is the number one thing and i actually work at an employment agency so i know you can not treat people like this so somrthing needs to be done and i will not rest until i get justice i can actually take her to court for her putting her hands on my property, it was not my fault that she didnt have the chains up with the employee only sign on them she put them up while she was yelling at us and i am calling them and making sure they have the video,someone needs to contact me or my husband , my husband is a contractor and spends LOTS of money with Lowes we have an account and are in there all the time the one in jackson knows him by name and loves dealing with him. So i would appreciate if someone would contact us about this or i WILL take care of it by myself,I dont think this is the type of people you have working for you and i know you would never let someone treat your customers like this thank you very much.

i have researched Lowes and Home Depot. Neither store appears to be concerned with their customer base. Originally I was wondering if these incidents were isolated, but I feel they are not. These people are just born rude I guess. I doubt if any of the major chains treat there customers any better. I like the mom and pop stores locally. They actually appear to care.

WHOEVER ANSWERED THE PHONE AT THE LOWE’S CUSTOMER SERVICE DESK @ 115 FOXON BLVD. NEW HAVEN, CT 06513
STORE #0593
I am just now cooling off a bit after the most angering experience I have ever had in a store. I went to Lowe’s with my friend so he could by some plywood. We loaded a sheet of plywood and went to the saw table to have them cut it for him. We looked for a call button and none was to be found, walked up and down isle after isle looking for an associate again none to be found. So I called the store on my cell and told the operator where I was an what I needed and asked if he could page someone to help us which he did.
We waited and waited so I called again and explained that we were still waiting at the saw and if he could page someone again and this is how the conversation went.
O: Thanks you for calling Lowe’s how may I direct your call.
M: Hi I am still waiting by the saw to get some wood cut can you page someone again please.
O: Who are you?
M: Excuse me.
O: Who are you?
M: What go you mean who am I? I am a customer back at the saw waiting to get a piece of wood cut;
O: Then get off of the “fucking” phone, click!

I must have looked like a cartoon character because I could feel my face getting hotter by the sec. Now at this point I am like “OH HELL NO!!!!!”
I walked or half ran from the back of the store up to the customer service desk to see who this jerk was that just answered the phone was.
When I got there the first thing I asked for was for them to page a manager.
While I was waiting for the manager to appear there were 2 female on 2 male associates there. When the manager arrived I explained to him what happened and by this time it was down to 2 female and 1 male associates behind the counter. He asked one of the females what male associate was answering the phones. Surprisingly enough they all seemed to be experiencing amnesia. They did say they thought it might be this one guy but they weren’t sure.
So the manager asked me what I was buying and surprised at the question I said wood, why? Then he said he would come down with me to make the purchase and he would give me a discount. I looked at him and said I don’t want a discount I want who ever answered the phones job, THAT’S WHAT I WANT!!!!
So we go off looking for the associate that the manager thinks is the one who was on the phone and on the way he tells me it is store policy not to reprimand an associate on the floor that he would take the associate into his office and have a talk with him at which I said no problem but your going to do in front of me.
We get to the other end of the store and there are 4 different male associates standing there and the manager asks one of them were you answering the store phones and he said no. I happen to know that he was behind the desk when I went up.
So this manager starts off with I’m not sure who answered the phone and there really isn’t anyway to find out who was. So I said to him REALLY! You mean to tell me you have no way of knowing who is answering the phone? He said no not really.
So at this point I saw that this was useless and before I went totally ballistic I told him OK. Sense you have know way of knowing what your employees are doing then it will be up to corporate to figure it out then won’t it.
So I repeated corporate will have to handle this situation being that you have no clue what is going on in your store and I left.
Now here’s the question will Lowe’s Corporate let this go unchecked?

HORRIBLE COMPANY. Advertise appliance specials and when you attempt to purchase your given a 2-3 month delivery time due to quote” COMPANY HAS TO SEND IT TO US”. REALLY? Why the hell you advertise it then? You do not have it, that’s a form of fraud. I paid off the damn card and to hell with them. More companies available.

We purchased a French door refrigerator, stove, upright freezer, washer, dryer, and riding lawn mower last month. One week ago we had the stove, freezer, and refrigerator delivered. The refrigerator was not level and there was over a half an inch difference between the height of the doors. They were not closing properly. This is how they were left. My husband told the delivery guy it wasn’t right and he said, he did not know how to install the doors properly and he left. Upon looking more closely, my husband found a screw out of the door broken and kicked under the refrigerator. We called our local Lowes in New Philadelphia Ohio were the appliances were purchased. The lady we bought them from, ordered us a new refrigerator. I am not paying $2400.00 for a broken door that will not be warranted. The refrigerator was delivered yesterday. The delivery guy, Nick showed up and tried to tell us the other refrigerator could just be fixed. I asked why it was left that way to begin with. He said Lowes does not train their employees and they do not give them proper tools to use. He said, its not his fault and it was going to take too long to bring the new refrigerator in. He said, the same thing would just happen again!! My husband told him that he believes the screw was broken on the door because it was stripped. Nick all but told my husband he was stupid and didn’t know what he was talking about. At that point, I let this disrespectful young man know that my husband has been running his own construction company for over 30 years and we have trained many employees over the years. We would never have allowed any of them to treat our customers with such disrespect!! I said in no uncertain terms I want the new refrigerator installed and installed properly! He said, well, it will happen again and it will be a long installation!! I said, if it happens again, I will again ask for another refrigerator. He stormed out, brought in the new refrigerator, slammed things around, and had no clue how to install the doors!! My husband asked, May I show you something? He then proceeded to show him how to use the screws without breaking them. The other delivery guy, Benny, who was wonderful, said hey, thanks!! I have learned something new today!! That’s great!! Nick walked out, never said a word and went out and sat in the Lowes truck for the rest of the time Benny finished the installation. (aprox. 30 minutes) I was afraid of Nick. He continuously glared at me and raised his voice at us. No customer should be treated this way. I called our Lowes manager. Although, he was nice, his problem resolution was to say, IF you ever patronize our store again, let me know and I will make sure Nick is not your delivery guy. That was it!!! I am very disappointed!!! Not even a sorry!!!

I was told i was an hour late 2 days in a row
Back in July. They fired me today two months later. The environment I worked in felt hopeless like we were set up to fail. Three years out of the army and the closest I came to suicide was while working for you guys. Alos I really appreciate you guys waiting till now to do it. Now i get to try to get my unemployment set up in time to be able to pay my first months rent on the apartment I haven’t even moved into yet. Thanks Lowes your doing your best to add to the veteran suicide and homlessness statistics.

Attention everyone beware this store in Hamilton NJ, the store number in 1046 located on route 130 in Hamilton NJ this Manager name Emma is really rude and “RACIST” I tried to purchase a Generator but just because I am Black the way she was talking to me you can tell it is because of my color that she did not believe that I could afford such expensive item. The worst part, after the really bad service provided by heron my way out. I heard her talking with another coworker and said the word “NEGRO” I begging everyone, all my black folks don’t go there, do not purchase there. The management team over there is really RACIST, especially for the one call Emma. I will file a law suit against this company. I recorded everything on my phone. The whole conversation.

I purchased two Reliabilt French door at over 1700$ each… Reliabilt has never recognized the problems with them… The local Lowes replaced the first one and after 15 months I am still trying to get something done about the second one… The doors were prepainted and after a few months the paint started peeling off the brick moulding and door casing… The Lowes in Pikeville Ky has filled out 3 warranty forms, called Reliabilt while I was in the store and finally got a local rep to come out and look at the problem, but still nothing…. I have probably purchased over 20 doors from Lowes and most were Reliabilt, but never ever again.. I will never use or recommend another Reliabilt product…..

I wrote the following message to send to Lowe’s but after reading some of the other comments, I realized this is a company that has absolutely no moral compass nor cares about anything other than the bottom line, Looking back, I remember they were one of the first companies to try to change Christmas trees to “Holiday trees” Give me a break!!. I too have had family given the “big talk” before being employed. They saw the way the wind was blowing and were smart enough to get out after only a few weeks. I used to enjoy shopping this store (next to Hobby Lobby, it was my favorite) but I think I may have to drive the 60 miles to a home depot for any large purchases now. I might pick up a drill bit or a pack of screws on occasion. All I can say is GOD doesn’t like ugly and he will have his way. See below for my horror story.
On Thursday afternoon, Aug 6, my husband and I were in the local Lowe’s, Columbus, MS shopping for items to do some home maintenance and repair.
We had already picked a few items which the location was familiar and then went on over to the lumber department. There were several items we located and between the two of us,were able to load onto the cart. We were having trouble locating any associate for assistance. We are both retired but my husband, although in fair health, is currently having some issues with blood pressure and this causes some periods of dizziness and brief periods of weakness. We went on up to the cut board lengths as we needed 8 – 10 1 x 6 x 10’s. Unfortunately these were on an upper shelf which made the retrieve and load a bit cumbersome. I noticed a store associate at the end of the isle looking in our direction several times and was wondering why an offer of assistance was not made. He just kept looking and then walked away. I told my husband, after about 4 boards to hold on, I was going for help. There just seemed to be no one around that day. I found the associate at the register just talking and asked if he could come help us. I later figured out he was hesitant to help us as it was right at 4:00, his getting off time and he didn’t want to be “stuck” with a customer. I will get to that in a few sentences. He did help with the last board!!. We needed paint and the porch /deck restorer so we headed for the paint department. I kept waiting for someone to come so my husband suggested he go and get the stuff we already had paid for and loaded on the truck. I waited a bit more and then wen to the service deck to have someone paged to paint. This was when I saw the associate from lumber with his lunch pail clocking out so I figured correctly on why help was not offered, but rather had to ask. The page went out but after 10 more minutes no one had showed: I asked for another page. It was ot until my husband had came back, went to one of the registers and asked for help in paint that after another 5-6 min someone finally came. It was now 20 min after we had got to the dept and had been waiting. An associate came and the first thing she tells us is she is working 2 depts. and really doesn’t know much about the paints but is having to fill in.( First mistake!) That is a sad story but it was not my problem and she was not supposed to make it mine!!! By this time, I was really a bit perturbed. I had never had a bad shopping experience at Lowe’s; everyone has always been so friendly and helpful. I have always has someone, where ever I was in the store to come by and offer help; to see if we were finding everything ok. I would expect attitudes at Wal-Mart maybe but not at Lowe’s so this experience was so totally out of the blue!!

We were finally able to get my paint matched THANKS to an associate that came in early, was supposed to be in Flooring but came to help re the issue we were having getting the paint matched for the 10X restore. To her credit, she thought out of the box, entered the formula manually and the color came out perfect!!! Kudos to that associate whose patience was above and beyond! The first associate that had came over told they would not be able to fill our request because the base was not the right one. Her words actually were “we can’t make this cuz it isn’t the right base for what you want!” (Second mistake) , a good associate NEVER uses the word “can’t”. The associate that was ablea to help us was top notch. I am just so sorry I did not get here name as she was awesome.

Finally, by the time we was able to check out (it was 5:00 by now) it was pouring down rain!!. We got the cart out side and my husband got the truck, fortunately it was parked close in the handicap as I am still recovering from a total knee replacement, (makes walking over 200- 300 feet painful), a kidney stone procedure and have a painful spur in my left knee. We had the bucket of restore, bucket of paint and some other items but between us we got them loaded. AGAIN, no offer of assistance. As we left I told my husband that had to be the most horrific experience I had EVER had at that store. SOmebody must have dropped the ball an scheduling for the day. I could not find anyone at anytime to help. It was then that He told me the whole topper to our shopping trip. When he went to load the lumber while I waited in the paint, he got the truck under the canopy, (thankfully there was one, as it was raining hard) and started loading the lumber and boards on the truck. There were three (3) associates standing off to the side taking a smoke break and NOT ONE off them offered to help him. I had previously seen several of them gathered at one of the service desk when I wen to look for help for retrieving and loading earlier..

As a result of all the lifting, and man-handling he had to do himself, my husband is now suffering from a strained back that may takes weeks to heal and because he is 73 years old, has diabetes, blood pressure problems.(he only has 60 % of his heart function as he had a triple bypass but one of the bypasses failed and stopped up again) This has most likely weakened that muscle so that he may never have the use of it as before. We went to the doctor on Wednesday following all this as his pain had gotten really severe. I know we have no legal recourse as this can be interpreted by law as a self inflicted personal injury. I majored in paralegal in college and am familiar with Torts. The assocates are under no legal responsibility to help or make offer to help. Lowe’s cannot be help legally responsible. But consider this if you will, how would you feel had this been your father and mother! We do not have the money to hire the help we need to do these repairs and maintenance. That is why we were at Lowe’s! We have to do this ourselves or it does not get done. I don’t know how long it will take for him to get better so I do not know how long before we can get the repairs done.
I called back to the store as soon as we got home and let the manager know what had taken place so there is or should be a record of it. This was before We knew my husband had injured himself. I was just so very upset at the sorry and poor customer service we had to endure on the trip that day. I am worried about how what we need to is going to get done…. I just don’t know!!.

I retired from one of the Fortune 500 companies that had a motto of
“Do what is Right, What is fair, What is Honest”! I take a great deal of pride in that and feel grateful I had the opportunity to work for such a company. If I was physically able I would still be there. They still watch our for me as a retiree.
I felt such a sense of loyalty that going above and beyond for our customers was just second nature. Can your employees say that?? Can you offere the same to your customers?

I will still shop and hope that was just a really bad off day but unfortunately, we will be paying for it for a while in more ways than money.

Sincerely

Mrs. Barbara Cantrell
Caledonia, MS,

What a disgrace of a business. I’ve shared my experience about my shower doors with at least 6 employees of Lowes. They installed cheap doors that I didn’t order. One door
is in danger of falling off and now that shower can not be used. They offered me a 10% discount on new doors which means I would have to to spend another $2000 for new doors.I offered to pay the difference for a better quality from a different company. They refused. They want want to have common ground as long as it is their favor. I have spent thousands of dollars a Lowes. I will never spend another penny there and will be quick to tell people to tell people of their poor business practices. I have also been in the stored numerous times to find out what can be done and no one even calls me back. Customer service is non existent Janice Kane

Appox. 2 years ago I purchased a 5-light vanity bar item # 0590932 . Yesterday while trying to relace a bulb one of the glass globes broke . The store does not sell the exact replacement globe and gave me Portfolio phone number . Upon reaching their cutomer service I was told the globe is not available ,although the fixture is still on display in the store. In my opinion this is a bad policy. They have generic globes that would fit my fixture ,but that means that I would have to replace 5 of them so that they would all match.
This appears to be poor customer service.

My truck was damaged by one of Lowes lumber carts. There was over $3,000 in Damage. Lowes offered me $500 in go away money. This was unacceptable. I filed a BBB claim and Lowes ignored it. I’m now filing a small claims court action today against Lowes. Legal action appears to be the only thing that works with Lowes.

I purchased 4 major appliances from Lowes which were widely promoted as part of a GE rebate. My decision was partially based on the rebate amount.
THIS WAS IN MARCH!
After filing my submission online and receiving notification of its receipt, I waited, March, April, May, June, July and now August.
Each time I checked your rebate center it stated the rebate was in process. Nothing else.
I’ve called Customer Care, the Rebate Center, written to your corporate offices, and my only real response has been that the
“first” rebate was sent out and never cashed so a new one had been issued.
When will it go out – no answer ?
There is no other information.
This is the second MAJOR problem I ]ve had with Lowes this year. You were unable to deliver these same appliances in a timely fashion – and ended up costing me an additional 500$ in carpenter fees, now this.
SO far the only real response I have received from customer service was your request for the same information
you already have.
What is WRONG there?
Is this how you treat loyal customers?
Why advertise a rebate you are unable to honor in a reasonable way?
Why give your customers NO INFORMATION?
This is beyond the pall, and at this point I can only assume that you are dealing in bad faith.
Since you leave me no options, beyond not shopping with you any longer, my only recourse is to
spread the word about this – and I will, on every Facebook page and message board I can find.
This is no way to treat any customer. Now I understand why my contractors want to buy from Home Depot –
not Lowes.
Please don’t send any more apologies – just do what you said you would.

We purchased carpeting from Lowes which was installed on June 4th. Had a follow-up call from Lowe’s representative to check if everything was fine. Reported issues with the installation and was assured that someone would contact us to correct it. It is now July 30th and still no one has corrected the problem. We have made weekly trips to the store and each time are assured someone will call. On July 17th we spoke with the store manager and he said he would take care of it. The carpet has edges that are standing up which can cause someone to trip. I showed pictures of it to the manager. If we or a guest should trip and fall they can be sure of a law suit. We have documented every trip and call.
We felt confident that Lowe’s would honor their policies which is why we chose them. This is our last purchase at Lowe’s be it large or small.

I have never been so frustrated in my life with a company that offers extended warranty. I have a whirlpool cabrio washer that currently has been worked on for the last month! Needless to say I have spent a lot of money going to the laundromat for weeks! My extended warranty that I purchased is useless. My washer currently needs 12 parts! 12! That is including a new tub! The extended warranty company refuses to replace this machine. When I call I get the tag lines read to me repeatedly. As you go up the chain of supervisors when I call they become more belligerent with their delivery! Rereading the contract that it says they will only repair not replace. My machine is clearly a product failure.
Very disappointed in this warranty! Very disappointed in corporate Lowes people. I told the supervisor that I was not satisfied she tried to,blame the repair person! When asking her to clarify she quickly changed her wording. I have no problem with my repair company or the local store for that matter. I believe the stores hands are tied to this corporate warranty policy. Companies like Best Buy and Sony and SAMs Club stand by their products and replace no questions asked. Why Lowes? Why take people’s money and then not stand behind the products you sell? Extremely disappointed that I have been taken advantage of.

We have some great Canadian friends that bought a condo in Mount Dora, FL a couple of years ago. They decided to have Lowes Mount Dora, FL., totally remodel the small condo kitchen in 2015. In order to get the Lowes store to do the project they had to pay for it in full, up front—–$25,000! They were told the job would be complete before they returned to Canada in May. Well, here it is the middle of June, 2015, and the kitchen is still unfinished. We check the progress (very little) each week. This week June 20, 2015, we decided to invite a master carpenter to join us. We stepped back and waited for his reaction. He was appalled by the poor quality of work. He said it is obvious that measurement errors were made. The kitchen is totally off center. He said he could not believe Lowes would allow such inferior work to represent their store. It is pathetic…..our friends could have hired a handyman to do a better…..and a lot cheaper….job. We are furious that Lowes Mount Dora has taken advantage of these terrific people. Our poor friends actually paid an extra fee to have a kitchen “specialist” oversee the project….that is a joke! The women either has not been to the worksite, or she is totally ignorant regarding kitchen installations. I also wanted to mention that our friend was the one who actually had to go to the city to pull the permits….what a screw up Lowes Mount Dora! Our friend also painted the walls in the kitchen herself in order to try and speed up the job. Lowes Home Improvement Store in Mount Dora, Florida is a shame to our community!

People Think by having a “BIGGER” Name such as Lowe’s or Home Depot do their kitchens, or bathrooms, that they have a better chance of success, why can’t you and thousands of others realize that you should of hired a local reputable contractor!! Lowe’s Nor Home Depot have no quality control with the installation, and their design department, is a joke. No one has the experience to do things the right way. Everyone fails to realize that things always works out and looks great on picture, but when you get to the house it is hardly the case.
I am a contractor who has been in business almost 15 years, and it is this that gets me so aggravated. People STOs and HomP!!! using Lowee Depot for Any Installation, and support your local business. If you owned a business yourself you would appreciate what I am asking.

I am an employee of Lowes on extended leave. I want to share with you why I am on leave. I was hired into store 1511 ,I was open about my degenerative joints disease and my 2 repllaced knees. With all kinds of praise about my management experience and being told I was wanted on the management team by store manager Luke I felt good about my job. I was placed in the tool department that at the time had no dept manager. Soon Julio Garza was names dept mgr. I was part time seasonal as yet. Soon Julio had to have emergency heart surgery. My zone mgr Eric was running himself ragged to keep up. So, on part time salary, I took it on myself to learn what I needed to do to keep as much of the duties of dept manager up to date. I did this through black Friday 2012 with only myself and the only full-time tools employee at the time and according to management we were very high in sales within our district, I believe #1or#2. Immediately following January 1st I was cut back to 20 or less hours. All the zone mgrs talked me into riding it out. During all this time Luke kept encouraging me to apply for every mgr position that came up only to be passed over by “more experienced” mgr applicants some of whom talked to me and told me either they had no mgr experience or very little. Almost everyone of these new managers were black, I have no problem with race what so ever but we all watched as Luke filled 80 or more percent of mgr openings with black employees he previously knew. I finally went full time and applied for the tool dept mgr on multiple occasions and was passed over once by a more experienced in management employee whose only mgr experience was a supervisor at General Motors plant not any Retail, he lasted about 3 mths. Because of my disabilities I worked in pain nearly everyday but that’s a fact of my life and I just fight through it and the zone mgrs understood and I did my job to the extent they all told me they didn’t need to walk my department because they knew if I said everything was done they knew it was. We got a knew zone mgr Xenon Douglas. I tried my best to keep things up to his expectations but he was a moody person and some days you could not do anything right while others you were a hero. In March 2014 I started having breathing problems and sweating with light headedness. I worked my 8 hours and went home. It was Friday and I was off the weekend and I felt fine all weekend. Monday I came in at 6am and it started again, I was told I looked so bad that the LP mgr stayed in sight of me almost my entire 8 hr shift. I went straight to my DR from work and long story short I was trying to have a heart attack, I didn’t but within 24 he’s I had emergency bypass surgery because the genetic blockage I had was the widow maker. I was out 6 mths and returned to work. Xenon asked me if I could be his opener and handle the freight. I told him yes but I would be slower for a while and would need help on heavy days, non was offered. After being off and inactive for so long the joint disease progressed in my back and neck, I went home in pain everyday, rarely did I allow it to keep me from working. On March 22nd Xenon had me scheduled for closing to 11pm. But scheduled to turn around and be back at 6am for a meeting. I asked if I could open that day due to how hard it would be with my health issues and he said he couldn’t because requests had to be a month in advance,never mind that we didn’t know a month in advance he was going to schedule me that way. So I came in and worked my shift, I had been hearing that management could not make meetings mandatory anymore and intended to ask Xenon about it. At around 8:30pm Xenon held the evening huddle and during it he said the meeting is not mandatory but it kinda is? That if you were scheduled for it you probably better be there. So I decided to hustle, get everything done and ask to leave at 10pm to get as much rest as possible. At 10 PD Cody in hardware took a break and I walked back to see if he needed help and he said all he had left was to sweep and he was done. I told him I was going to get Xenon to let me go my neck is hurting and I had taken all the Aleve I safely could. I approached Xenon and told him I was done could I go cause I was hurting and needed all the rest I could before coming back at 6 he said he saw something needed doing and I went and got it done. I returned to him and he was going to give me more to do, is hardware done and I told him Cody Webb had told me all he had left of his part was sweeping. He became belligerent about it being all one dept because of an email I sent about it. I told him I had asked to switch to open and he pretty much yelled at me that just because I ask he has no reason to grant the request. At this time I informed him he was discriminating against an American with disabilities and that was unlawful. He went off on me to the extent that I lost my temper, reminded him I bust my buttons for him everyday to which he answered sure you do poor misused Danney. At this point I said Fuck you (I’m adding this in order to be truthful) I am not quoting but I am going home I’ll see you in the morning open the damn door and let me out, he walked further away and Charles dept mgr of inside lawn and garden let me out. I had chest pains on the way home. In the morning I was so tired and still hurting I called and told Eric Burch what happened and I wasn’t coming in to which he said its not mandatory. He should not have scheduled you for it. I made the decision that day to go to a specialist and see about fixing the problem since it appears more discrimination would be used just like the mgr positions I was passed over for. The only option for me is pain management and injections into the infected areas to slow down the degeneration along with long term pain injections. I have used up my short term disability and just got approved for long term from Cigna to December. I want you to know that discrimination and reverse discrimination exists in store 1511 and I am sharing a message I received from another employee you should know about it shows it is still going on. I won’t reveal this employees name to protect them because right now I have no trust in anyone in Lowes Management. By the way right after the incident with Xenon I call the employees help line and filed a complaint. I hear he has been fired for “HR” reasons but that’s all I can find out. What’s being hidden there. I struggle everyday paying my bills and keeping my insurance paid all because of the atmosphere in store 1511 I need help financially but I have no where to turn. Here is the message I received.

Your employees would work harder and do what u asked if u treated them better . Quit being inconsiderate and self centered . And all about u u u !!!! We can’t Be Number 1. If the Moral Is so down.We are so drained from being talked to like we are shit that we can’t take care of what we are supposed too. If you make your employees overwhelmed and make them break down in tears …. there’s something wrong with that !!! Yes you have a open door policy but it’s a swinging door that will slap u in the ass as u walk out .. you seriously have concrete in your ears cause we can tell u the problem till we can’t speak anymore and nothing will be done because , we are talking about one of your favorites !! You are burning out your best and “seasoned” employees . This is really getting old !I have been with this company for 11 years and it’s only getting worse!!!I am underpaid for the work and the shit I have to deal with . GOD grant me the strength and the knowledge and the path to find where I am supposed to be in life. Cause this.. is not it anymore!!!

Ordered $3000 lawnmower, waited 20 days for delivery and found out order had been canceled by Lowes without notifying me. Offered to order another, not good enough. Complained to customer care that only said store manager would contact me. This went on for 2 weeks then promised district manager would contact me, still waiting. Bought morwer from home depot where will purchase all items in future.

I am still aggravated over my recent experience at your Bethlehem, PA store as I was hoping to have all my lawn and patio preparations done by this weekend. Trying to have all my needs met in your lawn & garden department became a nightmare once I had no choice but to be assisted by the department manager. He shortly became annoyed with my questions and trying to explain the project I wanted to accomplish. The pavers were of poor quality (chipped and scuffed), And he obviously did not know all he pretended to know about the equipment. After being made to feel as if I was wasting his time I commented that perhaps I would be better served at Home Depot. Rather than wanting to help me he told me to go there. THAT was the best advice I got and will continue to take my business to Home Depot.

Your HR management in Colorado Springs, Colorado off North Nevada; have been making hard for its workers there especially one pregnant female that is a high risk pregnancy. It has gotten out of hand to the point this young lady is working in a hostile environment and I am ready to labor law office to get this resolved. I asked to for the Regional HR’s phone number to file a complaint and none of your employees did not know the number or even where to get either. the sad part is that your customer service with your ASMs are very shitty and act like it is an issue to ask a question or even help to find a product. Fix the problem I will fix it for you and management team up there.

Tell me something,

If I only need a foot long an a foot long piece of plexy glass why would you make me buy a large piece much larger, 5x the size?

I would not want to buy a piece that is MUCH larger just for you to cut it down to my size and the excuse I get from Lowes Assistant Manger; “That is just the way does it and has done it as long as he can remember”!

That makes absolutely no sense and it is plain nonsense.

Over the past 3 years we have made many major improvements to our home, Including a total kitchen update. All cabinets, flooring and fixtures were purchased through Lowes at approximately $12,000. We purchased carpet as well. Since it was a pleasant experience, we returned to Lowes when we decided to update our master bath. We worked with the Lowes plumbing department in Arnold, Missouri. We purchased the bathroom vanity, an additional linen cabinet, vanity top, shower door, light, fixtures, paint and flooring at over $4,000. We ordered everything on April 11, 2015 with the understanding it would be 3 weeks until the cabinets were delivered. Everything, including all fixtures, flooring and lighting was set up for delivery.

Anticipating the delivery date, my husband removed our old vanity, shower door and flooring so we would be ready to install all new items. After 3 weeks passed with no word of the delivery, we returned to Lowes to inquire. No one could tell us anything about the delivery date. Since it appeared we would be waiting longer for delivery, we decided to pick up the new light and fixtures so we could begin the update. This was approximately $600 worth of items, including an additional purchase of bead board. We brought all items to the customer service desk with our delivery order papers to let the customer service attendant notate the store order that we picked items up and didn’t need to be delivered. Several days later someone called to advise us of the pending delivery which included all items we had already picked up. If my husband hadn’t told him we already had picked up items, we would have received the $600 worth of items again. Evidentially the customer service attendant hadn’t notated your store copy! It is certainly to Lowes advantage that we are honest people.

This was only the beginning of what has become one horrible experience we have been dealing with over the past 6 weeks.

Initially, when we looked at shower doors with the salesman, he recommend this door. Since it was a mid-priced ($600) bronze door we followed his recommendation and ordered it. When it was received, my husband attempted to install the door but it didn’t fit. Upon returning it, we found out this door only fit 1particular type of shower.

When the cabinets and vanity top were finally delivered on May 11th, the linen cabinet did not have the shelves and the vanity top was cut wrong. It was to have a 3 inch extended center and cascade edge. The one delivered was a straight cut with a bull nosed edge. They returned it to the store. We went to the store and talked with one of the managers of the department. We explained what had happened. He looked up the original store copy of the order which indicated the correct cut with a drawing showing the cut. We were assured this would be corrected with the vanity manufacturer immediately and we would be moved “to the front of the line”. We would receive priority consideration and NOT have to wait an additional 3 weeks for the top. We were to be contacted as soon as he could provide pictures of the counter to the manufacturer (when the truck returned to the store). We were told 2 days ago that this manufacturer does not normally cut counters this way. This is news to us as the salesman was the one to point out this particular cut! Once again, we were assured priority order and we would be contacted with a delivery date. Since a week has already passed and no word as to when we can expect delivery, my husband called the store today and was told it would be delivered approximately June 6th! So much for being given priority consideration! Since this is Not acceptable, we were told it would be checked into to see if it could be sooner and a call would be returned today. Ten hours later, still no call. This is ridiculous, but expected based on prior lack of responsiveness. So we wait!

This entire experience with Lowes has been a true disappointment and has certainly made us think twice about future purchases.

I understand this message will probably be considered a “rant” and filed with the other unimportant letters and will not assist us in completing this transaction any sooner or with less headaches for us, but I felt compelled to vent our total frustration with the lack of knowledge and customer service by your store.

Just an observation. Why is it such a miserable pain staking experience to get any assistance at Lowe’s and if you do, some of their associates are so completely rude?
My friend and I were trying to get some help at the Lowe’s store at Oldfield Crossing Rd. in Jacksonville, Fla.and to say this was a painful experience would be an under statement.
After thirty minutes of looking for a human we finally found someone. I wish we hadn’t this employee was so rude it has actually inspired me to write this letter. We tried asking this employee a few questions emphasis on tried about the bathroom vanities on sale.This employee told us there weren’t any vanities on sale without even looking up. My friend said, “yes he saw some in the next aisle with yellow sticker on them.” That’s when this employee rudely and very sarcastically stated, “well, if you saw yellow stickers on them, I guess they would be on sale.” First of all we my friend was not trying to debate where the vanities were located or if they happen to be on sale we just were hoping we could ask him a few questions. It was so painfully obvious this employee did not want to be bothered or asked anything. The sad part about this particular store is this was not the first time we have been treated rudely. After complaining to the manger I now know why this store has this problem with rude employees. The manager never apologized he acted like he could careless and he was trying to get us out of the store as quickly as he could. This manager did tell us he would, ” address the problem” and this was “out of character for this employee to act like this,” basically dismissing any concerns we had or asking if he could help us on any way. No sincerity or concern at all. Well, the short version of this story is this same Lowe’s just lost 3,000 dollars worth of business as we had already discussed getting laminate and having them install it. That will not be happening now. We were shown how important our business is to them and that is not at all. I just wonder how many people leave there feeling like we did and walk out of the store never to return because of their employee’s that just cannot be bothered to answer any question and be half way civil when they do. I will not spend one cent of my hard earned dollar to be treated rudely. I personally will handle this problem by never stepping foot in this Lowe’s again.

In July of 2013 we purchased a GE laundry center ( stacked washer and dryer). We also purchase the Lowe’s warranty to cover the appliance. In March 2015 ( 20 months) the washer broke. We contacted Lowe’s who contacted one of there contractors to come and look at the machine. The appliance repairman came on on April 3rd. He indicated that it was a major repair involving a bearing in the transmission and that the repair could not be done in my home it would have to be taken to the repair center. He indicated he would notify Lowe’s warranty people and we would have to wait for them to decide if it would be worth fixing or if they would just refund the purchase price. On 4/7 the warranty people advised that they felt they wanted to repair the machine. Keep in mind we paid 1196.00 for the combination and they had decided to pay 753.00 to repair the washing machine. Not to mention the laundry cost I will be submitting for reimbursement. They say they will be forwarding an email to the repair center to go ahead with the repair. I contacted them that evening and was told we had to give them the opportunity to try and repair it. When I asked to speak to the supervisor I was told this was the decision and that they couldn’t come to the phone. According to the repair center they did not receive the email for a week however Lowe’s denies this. We did not receive any phone call on the status of this decision from either of them. On 4/14 we contacted the repair center who has advised us that there is a part on back order indefinitely. We contact the warranty company who then advise us that they still feel the cost is worth fixing this machine. I protest the logic of this decision and asked how long do you expect us to wait for a washing machine??? They then tell us that they will put out a national search for this part and at the same time put in a request for approval to buy out the washer. This can take up to 5 days but we could hear as early as 3 days. I contacted the warranty dept on Fri 4/17 to determine the status once again I had to explain the entire story. I was told that they need to speak to GE not sure why. I was told I called too soon that Tues didn’t count and then was put through to a supervisor by the name of kristen. Kristen could not have been ruder if she tried. She informed me that she made the decision to deny the buy out and we would have to wait until they found the part. She indicated that she would begin the search for the part as soon as we hung up. Hum I thought you started this search 3 days ago????? I than ask to speak to her manager and was rudely told that the managers do not take phone calls that she was the highest level I could speak to . She was the final decision. She would let us know if they found the part. I then called Lowe’s corporate to file a complaint the gentlemen taking the information was very kind and assured me I would receive a phone call within 24 hours from a manager. I waited til Tues. 4/21 no call. I called corporate again once again explaining the entire situation to yet another customer care person who said let me get you a supervisor explain it all over again to Pam who said she would expedite the search to the next level to determine if this part was still on a national back order while submitting it again for a buyout. I would receive a phone call by 5PM est if not call them back. Well you guessed it no call. I call them again and again no one knew what was going on and repeated the entire story and once again was told let me conference in a supervisor and then the phone goes DEAD…UGh. Called back got another CSR who couldn’t look up anything because their site was down. So I called again 4/22 spoke to another CSR who first thought they found the part and then wasn’t sure and then couldn’t really tell so let me get you a supervisor Her name is Robin who indicates that they thought they had the part but on further reflection decided to call the appliance repair center (remember them) who advised her that it is still on indefinite back order. Now we are back to submitting it for buy out approval. This could take up to another 5 days but probably not. It has to go to upper management and NO I cannot speak to upper management because they don’t take calls. In the meantime they have expended more money in salaries just to blow smoke in our faces than it would cost to just refund my money. I have never been so disgusted, disappointed, angry in my life. We have been loyal customers of Lowe’s and have spend a significant amount of money in their store. We have bought everything from flowers to lawn trackers. Washers, dryers, stoves, dishwashers etc I really feel we deserve better than this. I will not be going to Lowe’s for a light bulb and I planned on making sure everyone that can hear me how I feel.

I bought a frigidaire refrigerator at Lowes during the Labor Day weekend sale. I also purchased an ice maker with the extended three year warranty protection service plan. Since it’s arrival to my house, this ice maker has not worked. It freezes up and a nice block cascades down the back of my refrigerator . I then have to defrost it and use many towels to catch all of the water. I have had the repairman twice to my house. Two weeks after the second time, the ice maker froze up. I shut it off and have not used it since November. What a pain !!!! Why can’t I just have a new one…. I talked to Billy, supposedly a supervisor who was of NO help whatsoever !!!! This is the worst appliance I have ever bought !!!! Dealing with Billy was a failure. Lowes needs to get new personnel ….now I have to call the repair dept two more times just to get my new ice maker .

I was so excited to go to Lowes in Scarborough, ME today to pick up my refrigerator, only to leave very disappointed and frustrated. I had purchased the fridge Monday and had taken photos of it before I left. Today we loaded it, only to notice it had been gouged all over the lower freezer door. The fridge was a repair markdown that originally had no visible scratches when we purchased it and left it on hold for pick up. When we talked to the manager Darren, who checked it out and tried to tell us it was a dent/scratch discount. After showing him the photos we had taken, he said he could take money off. We asked about how much it would be today replace the door. He told us a new door would run us about $100 dollars. We decided to check thankfully and his estimate was way off. We called the manufacturer and it was $253 for the door+shipping+ labor to put it on… so now we’re looking an expensive fix. One that shouldn’t have been needed in the first place. We tried to see if they could meet us in the middle and he said he’d have to check because he didn’t want to lose his job. He came out several minutes later wrote down his cost break down on the back of our receipt and said he couldn’t do anything. Looking back the entire things is frustrating. When we talked the original sale person we were told it had the original warranty. When we went to pay they said no and talked us into the extended warranty costing another $100. Then I come to find it out it hasn’t been left in a safe place and is now damaged. Now because it was a repair, there wasn’t a comparable one at the price we paid. So we leave empty handed. I didn’t think my request was unrealistic and I even said I would take the discount in store credit. Ultimately the great service on the fridge would have lead to purchasing the rest of the appliances to match from Lowes and other items as we construct a new house… we will now do our business elsewhere. I’ve never been left so disappointed in a situation.

I have a complaint about false advertisement for your Black Friday Spring sale. You advertise the Troy Build Self Propelled Lawn Mower as being $329. This is the regular price, not a sale item yet you have it listed as part of your sale. This is misleading and false advertisement. I would like to have a response on this matter please.

This is a complaint. On 04/01/15 we went online to order a refrigerator, washer and gas dryer. The online order system stated that the Ocala store on 7575 SW 90th St had the refrig and washer but not the dryer. The dryer was available through the store at 3535 SW 36th St. I placed an order for the 3 appliances and two accessory items. The order was paid for by an American Express card and this caused an authorization hold apparently because the delivery address was not our home address on file. So I contacted your customer service operator who straightened the problem out and we were told the order was processed. Later we received a phone call from a lady at the 7575 SW 90th store who stated that she had seen the order and noticed that it was in two parts with some items coming from her store and others from the 3535 SW 36th store. She stated that she was combining the orders and that everything would be delivered from her store at 7575 SW 90th St on 4/14 as requested. We mentioned to her that per the online order the dryer was not available from her store but she stated that it would be available and she would take care of the order – “don’t worry everything will be delivered on the 14th”. The 14th comes but we didn’t receive any call the night before or even by 10am the next morning giving us a delivery window. We called the store and are told the dryer is on back order and they will have to call D.C. to get an expected date. I call Lowe’s 800 customer service number to complain and am told the order shows in the system as everything will be delivered on the 14th. We call the Lowe’s store back and are told that there NOTHING will be delivered on the 14th – they have none of the appliances we ordered and MAYBE they can deliver something on the 21st. To say that we were aghast would be an understatement. I call 800 customer service again explain the circumstances and am met with “we cannot help you”. To add insult to injury I am given a lecture by the rep who takes offense to my use of the word FUCKED UP to describe Lowe’s handling of our order. Let me add that I am a retired Senior Disputes Representative who handled both VISA and MasterCard disputes for PSCU (card processor) and I am well used to abuse from clients – my “so-called” lack of manners was mild indeed and I felt it was especially insulting to have the Lowe’s rep focus more time on that than on the mess that Lowe’s made of the order – which by the way was #75067 (I think there was actually a second number to cover the balance of the order but I do not know what that # is because Lowe’s never emailed us a detailed invoice.) So we cancelled the $4600 order and have purchased from one of your competitors who has guaranteed us delivery on Sat. the 18th and I may add at a lower price. Lowe’s has seriously inconvenienced us – we will be without appliances for several days and it will be Monday before the refrigerator is operational. As a consequence we will be extremely vocal in our criticism of the Lowe’s organization and Lowe’s will NEVER get even $1 of our business. You need to take a serious look at your online ordering system and at the connection of that system to your local stores.

I just bought a carpet from Lowes and in the store the small carpet sample was med grey. So we ordered it. And as it was being installed I said to the man that is not grey, it was a weird bluish green and he said yeah that’s what it looked like to him. He check the name of it and the name was correct put in my house the color was completely different than in the store. So I contacted Lowes that day and told them. The lady came out the next day and agree the color was complete different in different light. No I see I should have took the sample home but I’ve never had a problem before. So her boss calls me and says there is nothing Lowes can do which I can in part understand. But my complain is the guarantee says, ” If there is any problem at all, or if you are not satisfied for any reason, Lowes will make I right, guaranteed.” Well that is a completely false statement.

Today my wife, granddaughter and I visited the Lowes at 10156 E 71st street in Tulsa and everything was fine until we proceeded to the check out line. We had a sales lady by the name of Melinda who made it blatently obvious she did not prefer to be at this workplace. As soon as we began to check out this woman seemed very aggitated. She had difficulty ringing up our few items (17 to be exact) and immediately started to roll her eyes as we tryed to help her and reassure her it was okay, such as we were in no hurry. Melinda, her name tag stated, as previously mentioned, then proceeded to sigh and shrug her shoulders, and still, rolled her eyes. We had 13 flowers, thus being the items she had difficulty ringing up, so I suggested we pull the cart around, for her advantage, and she got upset that she had to bend down to scan our items, stating in a very rude manner, “These don’t have any special prices or anything on them do they?” when I simply responded, “no”, she replied with a scowl and, “Good.”. I am a disabled veteren, and have been a very loyal customer of Lowes since 11/96, building multiple houses, apartment complexes, remodels, and other numerous jobs I have had over the past 19 years. I have been satisfied with the services Lowes has provided me, except for today. I was very disgruntled with the lack of service, and ill-mannered woman we were bombarded with.

Hello
I have a complaint about a refrigerator that I had delivered .

Originally the refrigerator arrived on time and the delivery people picked up my old refrigerator and dropped off a new one .after bringing the new one in they plugged it in and it had no power ,we checked circuits and different plugs and it did not work .
my original frig had a ice maker they un hooked it and took it out so when this did not work they brought my old frige back in and told me the manager would call me ASAP and arrange a new delivery .
Finally after waiting all day I called and tracked them down and they told me they would deliver another on Saturday ,this was a Tuesday .

so on Saturday I made sure I was going to be home and waited they said it would be between 8-12 and finally at 2 pm I called and the person I reached said oh that was his fault they forgot . he then told me they would deliver another on the following Tuesday .
well on Monday I just happened to be home and they called and told me they were almost to my house .so I stayed home and they finally showed up again and delivered it .if they would of stuck to the original plan I would of not had to cancel my plans .
I decided I was not happy with this and complained on a facebook blog that Lowes had .someone called and chewed me out telling me I got my refrigerator what was my problem .so I went to lowes site and complained .I got a E mail telling me I would hear from them in 24 hours finally here days later a manager called me and again all he did was tell me . I received my refrigerator why was I complaining .
I am handicapped and am a below the Knee amputee . this refrigerator was being paid by Black hills energy . if lowes does not want to deal with this they should pass it on to another company that deserves the business. not be rude to the people that receive the appliances.

I called the customer service center and they told me I could not talk to a district manager that I had to deal with the store .

the store manager called me and he was a little nicer but still told me he could do nothing for me .

I feel this is totally unacceptable and feel like Lowes needs to compensate me with something more than come in and I will get you a good deal the Manager make me believe it was all about him making a profit .and no customer service .
yes I do feel this is discrimination and unacceptable

this purchase was at the North side Pueblo Colorado store

I feel the BBB and PFLAG and the Disabilities center needs to be my next step . they have told me to make one more complaint before we go farther

I purchased a LG side by side 11-21-14 and the freezer light inside never work or the ice maker call the service number authorize appliance came out order parts return 2wks. Later for the repair and it still didn’t work. Call them back tech. Came out look at tried a second time and didn’t work so the tech decided nothing else they can do but for me to call Lowes I did set appointment up there tech came out didn’t get anything to work he order parts also came back out a second time freezer light did work this time after installing parts but still no ice maker. Remind you I have taken off work 5x already without pay. Tech orders another ice maker for frig. Installed it yesterday ask to give it 12hrs. To make ice it is now 16 hrs. Still no ice at all so I have ask for a refund several times everyone wants to still send a technican by again. But it’s not gone happen that way at all I want a refund to go somewhere else to purchase a refrigerator this is very bad service, no customer service at all. Something needs to be done or I will seek other advice reminding Lowes it is 90 days past and refrigerator still not functioning completely.

I am confused….I have a county veterans I.D. showing that I served this country during the Vietnam War. I have used this card many times at Lowes in my area . I also have a small bungalow in a shore town in point pleasant nj and have used this card on purchases in toms river store.I am not a disabled vet and did received the discount upon check out. Recently I was advised that by the cashier we no longer accept my vets I’d. Of course this was only at the toms river store…I do receive the discount at other Lowes with no problem….My question is…Are the Lowes stores independently owned?? Why would it be accepted at some Lowes and not others??Something is not right….Be careful vets..Someone is playing games with veterans…Sad that Lowes could stoop so low in this level..
Tom jt***@aol.com I would like to hear your experience.. Maybe boycott by all veterans would speak louder…

I’m sorry about your experience, Tom and I want to personally thank you for your service. As a long time Lowe’s customer service employee, I can tell you corporate policy is a 10% discount for active duty personnel and those who have retired from the military. Only proper military ID with picture is accepted. During Memorial Day weekend, 4th of July weekend and Veteran’s Day weekend, the discount is given to all veterans and all ID is accepted. A few stores follow their own rules, which makes it confusing, at best. I hope this clears it up for you. Again, thank you.

I submitted my application to work part-time for a store location. My husband also applied for a position at the same location. He received an interview and asked if my application was being considered. The response was that family members cannot work within the Lowes Corporation. I would like to know if that is a Company Policy or if it is a store to store consideration. Please advise.

Bought Whirlpool a Refrigerator on 6 Feb 2015. By 20 Feb a refrigerator had been delivered 3 times. First returned due to large scratch on door. Second returned due to ice/water dispenser area not painted. On 3 Mar 2015, my ice maker broke. Although I spoke with my local store and made arrangements for a 4th delivery, I decided that a quick “I’m sorry so now when can we deliver the next one?” was no longer going to cut it. I contacted customer care and they told me they’d forward my complaint to the store manager but give her one business day to respond, that was a Fri afternoon so on Tuesday afternoon and I still hadn’t heard anything I contacted customer care again. I requested to move my complaint up the chain. Customer care told me to give this person at least a business day. That business day has come and gone. I have no intention on dropping this. Getting someone to care shouldn’t be this difficult. I mean, they did care to get my money.

I canceled the 4th delivery with customer care. I told them I didn’t know the time since they hadn’t given me one. I said they won’t unless I call delivery. At 825 am on the day of delivery I received a message they were on their way. At 0840, they left a message telling me they were at my house. I wasn’t though.

This is just one problem. I tried to buy the refrigerator online but since my new Lowe’s credit card didn’t cover they entire price and I’d have to divide it between two cards after 1 1/2 hrs on the phone I finally was told I would have to go to the store.

On 10/11/14 I contracted with Lowe’s in Jackson, Tennessee on Vann drive for a patio door installed. A month later it arrived and was installed incorrectly and another piece had to be ordered which required another long wait. I contacted BBB about the poor service and Lowe’s ordered another door, which was not needed. Other problems surfaced and after the right installer worked on it, the job was completed this month. Four months after they took my money! Management at the store said they would adjust the cost for my troubles. I had to make at least a dozen trips to the house (rental house) and my renter became disgruntled about the cold floor around the door (50 Degrees at the door and 60 degrees two feet from it with a draft at the bottom of the door. The compensation amounted to about half the cost of installation. Needless to say I am sorely disappointed with the installation of the door and the run-around from Lowe’s. In the past I have bought a house full of Pella windows, two refrigerators, one freezer, several truck loads of nursery items, tile for a bathroom shower, two new roofs for my house, two garage door openings two, hot water heaters, and many other miscellaneous items. I consider it an insult to be offered a 20% discount for my troubles. I do not feel like I am appreciated by Lowe’s anymore. Thank you for making it possible for me to air my griefs.

Just a heads-up…Lowe’s has a price match policy that will enable you to do ALL your shopping in one place. In addition, if using the Lowe’s credit card, you get an additional 5% off every time you shop.

Here’s the corporate website where you get more details–

I would like to address this issue on the Lowes Store in St. Clairsville Ohio for there remolding dept. I had drove 50 miles to this Lowes to have information on total renovation on our bathroom as well as having a whole new room added to our front porch. We had made not one but three trips to there store with picking out all of our fixtures and bathroom needs for this complete renovation and meetings for information of the project. We spoke with the dept manger Lawrence Mack personally and he and another laborer came to Cambridge to get further details/measurments of the project for a quote. Mr. Mack new we were going on vacation for two weeks and he would call or we would call when we returned from trip. We were home a week and half with no call so Terry along with myself had made six phone calls with no one returning any calls until I made the last call to the dept personal and informed him if Mr. Lawrence would not return our call in the next day I would go further up the ladder for some answers. FINALLY after that call I received a voice mail from Mr. Lawrence that he was returning the call and if we needed to speak to him call back. After a two month notice on what we wanted done 300 miles back and forth to the store, six phone calls and having a job of probably over $20,000.00 in sales for Lowes and not getting any type of call back to personally talk to us. I will NEVER NEVER shop or recommend this business to anyone. Owning my own restaurant for over 25 years I have never treated customers with such professionalism. In our business you always make it right. This was not a 100.00 job and those are important as well dont get me wrong. We had all of our bathroom items picked out from basin/lights to the all the fixtures. All I can say if a job this big is being treated like this your company is losing ALOT!! of money on the bottom line doing business with mangers as these. Very very unprofessional in every way.

I am extremely impressed with the delivery service from the Lowe’s in Madison, Georgia. Jason and Cedric called in advance to let me know an approximate time of delivery and called again to verify they were on the way. They both were extremely friendly and did a fantastic job installing the dryer and answering our questions. It was an awesome experience. I ordered the dryer on line Saturday evening and it was delivered before 3:30 on Sunday. Great job!

I have had HORRIBLE treatment at the Denver rt 73 store with their management. They misplaced our dishwasher during the delivery process and had to argue for 3 weeks with managers (total amount for all items delivered was over $5800) to get my dishwasher. I had a refrigerator delivered Sunday and it had been literally crushed when the guys took it off the truck, and lowes wants me to wait another week and a day because the store I purchased at does not have any in stock. HELLO, HUNTERSVILLE AND GASTONIA AND MORRESVILLE STORE HAVE ONE!!!! I want to speak with someone ASAP regarding this situation but nobody will return my calls. I will never shop with Loews again.

Being a CEO is like being a teacher!!!!! Anyone can be a teacher and teach a curriculum but that doesn’t make you a great teacher, the ability to motivate is what makes the difference between someone who teaches and a great teacher, just as being the head of a company as a CEO doesn’t make you a great CEO without having some sort of a customer service department as a basis for doing business, that is the start of a great business and of being a great CEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lowe’s Sacramento Ca. Was going to purchase carpet for two large identical room. 390 sq feet. We wanted a pattern and had compensated for this taking our measurements to 408 sq. ft. There are no cut ins the rooms are one large oblong. We were in the carpet department for thirty minutes before an associate even acknowledge us. We wanted Lowes to install for us. We had chosen the carpet that we wanted finally an associate came over to us. We told him what we wanted and before the conversation could continue he stated that there would be a $45.00 measurement fee if they were going to install. I have been a contractor for many years and know how to read a tape measure, it fell on deaf ears. The associate was not an asset to Lowes he lost the sale. He was more concerned of getting the forty five dollars than keeping a customer happy never once said we could make this work. The associate treated us like second class citizens and allowed us to walk away. Rude Rude, So now we will buy from Home Depot.

This is for the person at Corporate Headquarters who changes the rules on Veterans 10% discount. I was refused my Veterans discount at the Kannapolis, N.C. store on Jan. 11, 2015. I have a North Carolina license that has veteran stamped on it. I had to show my discharge paper to the Motor Vehicle Administration before I could get that on my license. Lowes said that is not enough, now the store said I have to show my discharge paper that I keep in my safe each time I visit the store. HOW UTTERLY STUPID IS THAT. Do you think that the North Carolina MVA is in cahoots with veterans and this is not really proper ID to show that I am a military veteran who served his country with honor. This makes no sense on any level. Just keep this stupid rule in place and watch even more veterans go to Home Depot where we are treated with respect and they accept the NC drivers license that reflects a person is a veteran.

Dear Mr. Hull:
I am writing this because I’m still shaking my head at the lack of common sense in your billing dept. I had a $25 late fee removed from my account last month and paid my $14.77 balance in full. I received my bill this month and my purchases were $21.99. Again, there was now a $26 late fee attached to this bill because I didn’t pay the late fee that was reversed last month so my balance says it’s $47.99 with a minimum pmt due of $38.00. I paid the $21.99 for my purchases. I was told this would continue every month until I paid the $26 and when I end up with a credit balance then Lowe’s would cut me a check. WHAT? I have now closed my account after being a customer for more than 20 years because this just makes no sense to me at all and I will now take all of my business to Home Depot. Amazing that a supervisor in your billing dept just kept blaming the computer because of the minimum balance required reflects a late fee that was reversed and there was nothing she could possibly do to stop this from happening. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this internal issue in your billing department. I look forward to you response. Dawn Parker

I ordered a kitchen from Lowe’s in Wapakoneta, OH on 6/10/14 and as of today, 1/5/15, this project is not done YET! I have electrical outlets hanging out of the walls (which is a complete fire hazard), large open holes in my drywall, half a countertop, a garage half full of cabinets, countertops, tiles, etc that were measured and ordered wrong, and construction debris that was never picked up. The contractors in this area are so over-booked but Lowe’s continues to hire these guys even though they know the customer is going to be screwed. The contractor came yesterday to install the new countertop, but again, it did not fit. I have contacted corporate before but only ended up getting a call from a manager at my local store. I am at the end of my rope, and after having my house torn up for 7 months, I have contacted the Clark Howard show and asked for his help. Maybe with some negative national exposure I can finally get this nightmare finished. I am also reporting them to the Better Business Bureau.

I’m a true Lowe’s customer,who spends a lot of money in the Rincon,Georgia store.I recently purchase 2536 sq. ft.of laminate flooring,which I love.The flooring was to be delivered to my home which made it there.The Laminate was to sit in my home for 24-72 hrs. before it can be install.Later the installer arrive and check the floor and wood out in my home.Everything was good.Later the installer inform me that I was short a pallet of my order,which Lowe’s corrected.On 12Dec2014 the laminate was to arrive at the store,which it did.I call the store and I spoke with Angela,Niki,and several Manangers to see when I can have the Laminate delivered to my home.I was told that it would’nt be Friday,but they would bring it on Sat.No Laminate,so I call the store to see what happen.Got the run a round,ok cool.Talk to Niki Sunday, and was told that it will be Monday,guss what no laminate.Now I’m piss,call the corporate store and talk with Michelle and she told me that the Laminate will be there round 7:00 pm,and that the driver will call me 30 mins before they arrive at my home.NO driver never showed up,knock off at 5:00.I then went to the store and talk with one of the Manangers who told me that my Laminate is still in the back.This is BS,I will be on the phone with the corporate office.Lowe’s had let me down.

Went online to sign up my grandson for the build and grow kids clinic in Billings, MT only to find out that it is full again!! If you don’t get them signed up the first day or two your child doesn’t get in, we are limited to a small amount of like 50 openings, Home Depot has an average of 200 kids in there workshop and no kids are turned away, if they run out of the project for that week they have a backup. I was told to bring in my 4 year old grandson and if someone didn’t show up he would be able to do the Christmas Train, what a disappointment to a little kid if I would take him down there and he doesn’t get to do it not to say its a 20 mile drive. Get real Lowe’s, people will drive miles to your store spend their money there the more kids you bring in the more parents come in and spend money. I know we we are Lowe’s shoppers but I really think we will now be doing ALL our shopping at Home Depot where my grandson is always welcome not just the first few.

My husband and I purchased several gallons of paint in Sept. to paint the exterior of our house. We went back to the store to purchase more, but apparently the person picked up the wrong tint base. One side of my house has 3 different shades of pale yellow.
It was time consuming trying to fix the problem and it still needs to be worked on, however, the weather is bad. Apparently the Lowes paint employees are not all well versed in picking up the proper tint base. I have photographs to prove the problem. What can I do, short of going to see an attorney?

I was going to write a registered letter to the CEO, CFO, and COO, but I will try this first since I have found it. My Mother died three years ago and my father approximately16 ears ago. None of my parents joint accounts were changed after my father died so as a result everything remained in both of their names. Lowes has been notified by phone, letter, as well as me sending my fathers death certificate and my mothers death certificate. The last time the collection agency called I asked the lady if she would like to continually get collection notices in her deceased fathers name.
It amazes me that Lowes can continually send me these notices but cannot send me copies of the invoices that I requested. As one of the executors of my mothers will these are needed to finally settle the estate but even though I have been told several times they will take care of it the only thing they seem to be able to do is send threats for late bills.

I, OR MY FAMILY WILL NEVER SHOP AT ANY LOWE’S AGAIN. Lowe’s will NOT honor my Military Honorable discharge card simply because it does not have a picture on it like the “Medical Military” card does. I HAVE MY OWN MEDICAL INSURANCE DO NOT USE MILITARY MEDICAL! WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, MY CREDIT CARD IS PRESENTED AT TIME OF PURCHASE, WITH MY MILITARY CARD TO IDENTIFY WHO I AM! IF MORE ID IS REQUIRED, I HAVE A VALID DRIVER’S LICENSE!

LOWE’S IS VERY INSENSITIVE AND DISRESPECTFUL AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED. I KNOW OF MANY OTHERS WHO HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM LOWE’S FOR THIS SAME REASON.

WE WILL BE SHOPPING AT HOME DEPOT AS LONG AS THIS ‘RULE’ OF HAVING A PICTURE MILITARY ID IS REQUIRED AT YOUR LOWE’S STORES! AT HOME DEPOT, SOON AS MY MILITARY CARD IS PRESENTED, I GET A BIG THANK YOU FOR SERVING! AT LOWE’S, I GET DISRESPECT! MY LAST PURCHASE AT LOWE’S WAS ON NOVEMBER 10, 2014, THE DAY BEFORE VETERANS DAY!

Throughout the years I have purchased many items at one of our Lowes stores in Fayettevile, NC. I have to admit I have been pleased with my purchases. I had doors and windows installed back in January 2010 which I paid cash for which I paid cash. Since having the windows installed my major complain has been the draft coming from sides of windows. The installers were no longer working for Lowes at the time I made my first complain. To this day I have been saying the windows were wrongly installed. On January 8th, 2011 I went to the store to complain again. In winter I can really feel the draft and the house heating system is constantly coming on. I had one of the installation personnel write and sign a note regarding my complain since the one year labor was about to expire. On January 25 this year I complain again and they sent DNS construction to check on the windows. I waited to be called and had to call DNS on February 12 and February 14 of this year to get an update. The gentleman who came to check the windows said he turned in the information to Lowes corporate office. These past few days have been very cold and windy and the same draft on these windows is very noticeable. This morning I called the store to talk to the manager as to what should be my next step. They informed me he was not there. They transferred me to one of the assistant managers and while explaining my situation, the call got disconnected. I immediately called back and they informed me the manager I was speaking to had to leave the store for about an hour. I need help from your corporate office.
Than you

OK, so to begin with I never thought that I would be doing this, but here goes. I bought a washer & dryer for my daughter at the Hamburg, PA Lowe’s & it was to be delivered today (sometime in the morning, I was never even given a range of time for delivery. No one is living at the house that the delivery was being made to so I made sure to tell the cashier to have them call before delivery to make sure someone was there. When we heard nothing this morning, my husband went down to the house only to see the delivery men getting in the truck & driving away. When my husband tried to flag them down, they waved & kept driving. My daughter immediately went to the store to inform them of this & given them my cell phone number since we were at the house working, but didn’t know how long we’d be there. We were assured that the delivery men would be back & that they would call before coming back (though the store couldn’t get hold of the drivers). We waited at the house for 4 hours & left to go get something to eat. Still no call, so I stopped by the store & met with the manager who informed me that they were at the house 30 minutes ago & would not return today, since we were not there after 2 attempts-would there be a day next week for delivery. I said can’t they meet us there right now & was told no. I said tomorrow (Sunday). At first he balked-said my daughter lied to me & never gave my number to the cashier then said that she said we would be there all day working. I know none of that is true having heard the same story from my daughter when she returned from the store, later that day when I returned from the store & from my future son-in-law. I also know that 4 years ago, I bought a washer & dryer from Lowe’s & had the same issue & I was home when they reported to the store that no one was home for delivery. Seriously, can’t anyone at the Hamburg Lowe’s take responsibility for messing up? After almost causing a scene at the store & explaining my past experience with this store to the manager, he agreed to have the washer & dryer delivered tomorrow but I still have not been given a time for delivery. Given my experiences with Lowe’s in Hamburg, PA I refuse to hold my breath & would rather have had the option of having my credit card refunded & just getting the washer & dryer from another store. We have been excellent customers to Lowe’s~ regardless of my past experience which honestly scared me away for 2-years. If my washer & dryer are not delivered tomorrow, I will be back at the manager’s office & tell them to refund my money. At that time, Lowe’s will be losing my business as well as my family’s business, any friend’s that I have will be informed not to trust them to deliver anything & if you can not take it from the store, not to purchase it. To say that I am ticked off at the continued practices at this store is an understatement. I hope that the manager did not in fact lie to me & will be able to hold true to his word & have the washer & dryer delivered.

I want to say that Lowe’s in El Paso, TX on Transmountain has an employee by the name of Steve G. in appliances. He is the nicest, friendliest, knowledgeable, caring employee! I have purchased my refrigerator, stove, hood, dishwasher, washer and dryer because he let’s me know when sales come up. He knows his merchandise and answers all my questions. I know I could go to their competitors but this employee is why I go to Lowe’s. He should be recognized for his excellent people skills. He is awesome!

Lowes hiring practices are unfair. They keep the people who know the store, customers, and products they sale as part time and hire dumb kids or people that are yes men to the managers. Case in point, recently a friend of mine applied for the full time job in the lowes department he has worked for almost 2 years. He didn’t get it naturally because the one they hired for the position was from the store the new store manager and human resource manager had just come from. Guess what the lady knows nothing about nails or screws. Save yourself time and waist. Goto Home Depot or your speciality stores because they at least treat the employees who know their products with respect

Re: Order# 3763795
Dear Mr. Prud’homme
President Lowe’s Canada;

I am extremely disappointed with the integrity of your advertising and your internet order process and also the manner in which my issue was handled at Customer Care. I feel that my concerns are something that you should take seriously, which I am sure that you will.

First a little background information which adds to my disappointment. I was in your Brampton North store last week where the Customer Service has and is excellent and I spoke to not only one of your associates but also as luck would have it the Briggs and Stratton representative who was in store. I was interested in a Snow Blower and because of their input I decided to seriously look at a style that was an upgrade from what I intended to consider. I inquired on availability and was told that they have many units, in fact the associate was concerned about selling them all. Therefore, I was in no real hurry to purchase as I wanted to look more into the spec sheet provided by the Company rep.

We did decide to purchase the unit this weekend and of course you can imagine that when I saw your current week long ad which I received Wednesday evening we decided to make the purchase right away on Thursday, which was the first day for advertised prices. When I went on line to do so I was even more pleased when I saw your weekend promotion for an additional 10% off. The order went through with all of our credit information and then two hours later I received a call from a store associate stating that they could not fulfill the order as they were sold out at their store and the other Brampton store. Needless to say I questioned her and was told that there was only stock in stores outside of the area and she mentioned the London store. There was nothing she could do for me and in fact she even stated that they only had much more expensive models! I contacted your Customer Care and was told there were units in Etobicoke and when she checked there weren’t any. Despite apologies she could do nothing further. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Scott, who also apologized but could not do anything. After some pushing he said he would contact corporate by email and would get back to me.

Now for my bullet points on this whole situation
• Why do you advertise something if you cannot fulfill orders on the first day of a weeklong ad especially since there was no mention of limited quantities
• When I questioned this I was blatantly lied to as I was told by your Customer Care rep that it has been on sale for some time – when I was in the store and when I checked on line earlier this week it was at the regular price of $799.00 – consumers are knowledgeable these days and do not want to be thought of otherwise – Scott tried to smooth over this by stating that it has been advertised before – then why is it advertised again if you can’t meet the demand?
• The integrity of your store on hands is also questionable in lieu of what I was told about the stock at the Etobicoke store
• Why was the fact that the style was out of stock not show up on line, thus disappointing customers such as myself who place their orders in good faith
• I was told that there is processing time involved for on line orders of a couple of hours as your system is not on real time – this delay seems to indicate that customers in store have a better chance of buying something then people who purchase on line and really both types of purchases should have an equal opportunity for availability – also this delay which shouldn’t actually be there but since it is, should be highlighted on line
• I do not understand why stock available anywhere is not made available to customers making a purchase even if it takes a few days to arrange a transfer as I am sure you have trucks going back and forth from your warehouse on a regular basis – also, why do you not arrange for back up stock in your warehouse and/or to be made available to you from the manufacturer to avoid disappointing both your and their customers
• Your website is actually good and easy to use but if the site integrity is not there it defeats the whole purpose

I have made many purchases of sale and regular priced merchandise on line at other retailers and have never encountered this lack of service. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement and to be blatantly lied to is totally unacceptable.

I look forward to your anticipated response.

Yours sincerely;
Barbara Rehdner

Greg, bought me the top of the line or next to top of the line Samsung washer and dryer. This purchase was made back in May. My dryer is now making a horrible loud noise, which Greg is thinking it’s the motor. I called Lowe’s and because it’s been over 30 days, they will not give me a new one. They have set it up for repair! Do my friends think this is the craziest thing ever!!?? I have called Samsung, they sk have to send someone out to check it out. We paid cash, bought the extented warranty, and they are putting me through HELL!!!! Samsung told me it was up to Lowe’s to replace it. Our extended warranty doesn’t kick in til lowes warranty runs out. How many friends thinks I should get a new unit? Greg is sick, and I need my dryer. Oh, and not to mention, I called corporate, the woman was rude as heck to me! I am very disappointed in lowes!!!!! Greg ssys, no more appliances from there. We thought they stood behind things. 30 days. Ive only had this unit 5 months!!!

april 30th I had a refrigerator, washer and dryer delivered to my house from the livermore, ca.store, besides not installing my refrigerator properly, the delivery company damaged my floor. the store refuses to take responsibility and fix it and so does the delivery company, apparently, the pictures I have to prove the damage was done by the delivery company are not good enough, even though you can clearly see the old refrigerator was gone and no damage was done to it then. I have always done business with lowes. I remodeled my old house through them and was never treated badly, that is why I chose to go to lowes this time. It is now october and NOTHING has happened, except a rude store managers telling me they can’t do anything for me and a 3rd party insurance company saying they will deny any compensation. NEVER AGAIN will I buy ANYTHING from lowes or recommend anybody to go there.

Lowes customer for two generation, happy shopping there and other stores throughout my life also my decease parent proud customers, clean stores, very nice employees .The Waldorf, Md.store I am a regular customer, my first experience having an insulation service done unbelievable that a job would be left incomplete, talk with corporate promise a call in 24hrs from senior management, no call , reschedule for completion, took off from work to meet with insulation person, he said be there in about and hour, three hours later scheduler called cannot be there today.I need to schuldule another time, but it very disappointing that after talking with some of the associate management, they make you feel that you are at the mercy of the contractors, but you paid for a service, this is a Lowe’s experience I didn’t expect. NEVER CONSIDERED HOME DEPOT, NOW MAYBE I SHOULD, A THIRD GENERATION SHOPS LOWE’S AS WELL.

Dear Lowe’s Corpoate,
My name is Michael Bradley and my wife and I have been loyal Lowe’s customers for a very, very long time.
On May 17th, 2007 we had a roof job done on our house thru Lowes of Johnson City,Tn. Lowe’s had contracted Blackwell Construction Co. to do the job. Randy Blackwell is the owner and he has since sold his business.
First I had to get Blackwell out to my house several times to get the nails and the roofing debris out of my yard…espically nails.Later in the winter of 2013-2014,I noticed a problem (leak) in the same area where I initially had a problem before the work was done. That’s why my wife and I decided to get a new roof .I contacted Lowe’s in early 2014.I also had an independent contractor take a look. At this time he informed me that my shingles were” installed wrong.”
I then contacted the local Lowe’s store where I live and told them of the problem. They said to contact a local Owens Corning Contractor to come out and take a look. And he did. The Owens Corning contractor also noted that the shingles were improperly installed wrong. I then contacted Lowes again in August 2014.
The manager I talked to has failed to respond to me at all dating back to the summer of 2014.I have been to the store on several occasions since then, but each time his employees say he isn’t available. I have left several messages and have gotten no response. I feel as tho Mr. Shepard has ignored me and my problem.
This is the point as to where I decided to send an email to corporate.I feel that Mr. Shepard has failed in his responsibilities as a manager and has not held up to his word or the word of the Lowes store .As of this email I have yet to hear from Mr. Shepard. He told me he would have to take this matter to corporate and that he would get back with me.
If you were to look at the history on how much my wife and I do business with Lowe’s
you would see that we are Lowe’s people.
I really hate that this matter has come to this but I and my wife expected better from Mr. Shepard and Lowe’s. I am still looking for answers to this problem.

Sincerely,
Michael and Terry Bradley

We had our roof done by Lowe’s in Newport News VA. The roofer used nails that were too long and damaged our overhangs in our craftsman style home.We asked him to stop but he said he was covered by the contract that said he had to use long nails for the warranty. We now have cracked wood and nails protruding from our overhangs. We asked Lowe’s to have the contractor fix the problem. They said they would paint the nails and glue back cracked wood if we sign a waiver. We had two other roofing companies come out and they said the roofer should have used shorter nails for the overhangs. We called Owens Corning and they emailed us a letter stating that shorter nails should be used for craftsman style overhangs and the warranty on the shingles would still be honored. The contractor refuses to do more than paint nails and only if we sign a waiver. When we call Lowe’s headquarters they end up sending the same contractor that caused the damage. We would like to have someone from Lowe’s headquarters look at the letter from Owens Corning and look at the pictures of the damage, but they always send it back to the same store, same contractor, same unresolved issue.I regret using Lowe’s for our roofing.

My complaints are a few, however, my biggest complaint is the 24.99% interest Lowe’s charges consumers who have a Lowe’s Credit Card. I can’t seem to get my principal down given the slice they take up front in interest. Example: $108.00 payment- $53.79 goes to interest and $55.27 goes towards the principal. This is highway robbery. I have tried to talk to the credit department and don’t really want to share what their “responses” have been other than they can be rude. Of course I grant them some sympathy for they are probably very low paid employees.

I am hoping this complaint where it can be seen by many will make a difference (?)

I had a project to replace my floor with wood. So I went to Lowe’s, (the store # 1518, its physical address: 9800 Preston Crossing Boulevard, Louisville, KY 40229. Phone # is (502) 810-0116, Sales #: $1518T$1914388) and requested an estimate. When my wife is at home alone, the store Installation Loan officer, Mr. Jesse Steward, came to our house and estimated all with promising Lowe’s team would not make a crap in their installation. With our sincere promise that Lowe’s team would not leave any squeezing sound and gab between the pieces of wooden floor, I made a contract for nearly $7,000.00 floor project. The Lowe’s installation team installed the floor on 14-15 October and left our home on 15 October, we cleaned the floor and found that there are many places having gab between pieces of wooden floor, cracked ones installed, and nail marks left behind. I was totally disappointed with Lowe’s installation team’s product. It was totally not their promised product. So I contacted the installation department of the store 1518 and asked them to come out and see them and fix them. The installation manager Anna, 502-810-0116 ext. 346, came out to my home while my wife was home alone. When she left my home, the Lowe’s installation person fixed only two pieces and left. On 17 October, he came out to my home to try to fix others. While I am pulling them out to my home to correct their crappy job, they said to me, “it is because of language barrier issue.” They came out to my home when my wife was home alone. But their failure of creating the promised job and also correcting their crappy job are not related with any matter of race, gender, and also language. My wife is a full time collage student now. While they understand dogs and cats which do not speak English at all, how can they matter with a collage student’ pointing out their failures? Is Lowe’s a company operating the business based upon a differentiation of race, gender and language? When the Lowe’s installation men fixed their crappy on 17 October, they would need to replace one near our refrigerator. Even though we paid the cost of moving furniture, they said to me they would not take any responsibility on any damage which might be caused while they would move the refrigerator. I said it would not correct. They said they moved the refrigerator already moved one time and it should be second time and so they would not take any responsibility on any possible damage. So I advised them to take to Anna, Installation manager in store # 1518. Anna said Lowe’s would not take any responsibility and also it would not be covered by warranty. So I said to her, saying, “Your installation job is not finished. As long as your installation job is not done, no matter how many time you move our furniture, you have to take the responsibility on any possible damage.” But Anna screamed out, saying, “I’m done. Just do it and get out the house.” Is this the customer care that a great home improvement company Lowe’s create for the customers? I really appreciate the business of Lowe’s. Lowe’s is a very important business in our community. But some wrong employees and staffs of Lowe’s and their immature or careless customer care makes Lowe’s good customers frown. They not only disappoint Lowe’s good customers but also undermines the great home improvement company Lowe’s which we need in our community. It is sad, isn’t it? Even though this store installation team corrected their crappy works, still there are many crappy areas in my this week-installed wooden floor making squeezing sound. So I comfort my wife, saying, it is OK. Look at the floor in 2 meter distance. It seemingly looks good. May God bless the Lowe’s, leadership and employees.

I bought a water heater from Lowe’s of Madisonville, KY store # 16 550 Island Ford Rd.
Madisonville, KY 42431-9478, (270)825-1999, salesman:Sharon Ellis Salesmen ID: 1169565, Document print date: 06/10/2014 The price of the water heater was $434.88. But the labor charge was $747.00. The Balance due was $1181.88. We paid in full in cash. It took them almost a full month for them to come out and start to install the water heater. And then when they came out they they used the old pipes on the outside of the house, and then they didn’t tighten the brackets, and later when the inspector came out he told me that it wasn’t up to code.he didn’t tell the people at Lowe’s that it wasn’t up to code. I had called asking why it hadn’t been fixedafter a strong wind had blew over the pipe again.they’ve sent people out three different times and every time they have done very crude work.i’ve got the video and I’ve got pictures of the crude work that they have done. I’m going to be asking for a full refund because his last work that they’ve done water has seeped into my house and possibly right into the inside of my new water heater.i’m tired of dealing with the shabby work that these people are doing. I have put a lot of work into this house just because it doesn’t look nice now doesn’t mean that it isn’t going to look nice in the future.

In addition to my previous post/complaint, I would offer the following: 1) Corporate needs to consider providing their staff with an efficient way to track customer’s purchases, especially things that have had to be order. This would prevent other employees from selling a product that was ordered for another customer!. Computers are amazing these days. 2) Employees need extensive training on communication with their customers when there are issues with a special ordered purchase, the customer is not left wondering where their purchase is. 3) Employees need to be reminded that Customer Services should be their No. ! priority.
This may not apply to any other store but the store located in Kingwood/Humble Texas is in dire need.

This in regards to the VERY POOR customer services I received at my Lowe’s store #750. On 9/29/14, I purchased a water heater – to be installed. Since it was out of stock, the salesman #S0750EP1, said they would order it and call me when it was in so that I could come in and pay for the installation. After 18 days of not hearing 1 word from them, I called the store, which took them quite a while to even find my order on their system. After checking the girl almost sarcastically to me that the reason for not receiving it was because I had not paid for the installation, to which I replied, no one had called me to tell me it was in. So on 10/7, I went into the store to pay for my installation. It took some 30 minutes or more to even get anyone to the desk to assist me. After he got most of the info into his computer, the computer crashed and he had to start completely over. He informed me that the installers would probably call me that day to set up at date/time, which they did. It was set up to be installed on 10/9 after 2:00pm. Around 2:30, the installers called and asked if I had the water heater at my house – no, I didn’t. Then about 45 minutes later, the store called to ask if I was sure the water heater wasn’t at my house. I would know if a spare water heater is sitting around my house! He then replied “Well, we have a problem as the water heater is not at the store”, to which I replied, “NO, WE don’t have a problem, YOU have a problem!”. Finally around 4:45, he called to say it was not at the store, that someone else must have sold it to another customer. Yes, he did offer another water heater, but since this was the 2nd time this store has sold my special order, I was DONE with Lowe’s appliance and that department … and I am done! I was asked if I wanted to speak with a manager, I requested that conversation. The night/assistant manager did listen to my complaint and was very professional and apologetic however, I AM DONE with Lowe’s appliances!!!

I will start by introducing myself.

My name is George L. Steiner. I was born on Feb. 8th 1951 in NYC, lived in Brooklyn, joined the US Navy on Feb. 11th 1969. Non related info, I used to go to the Lowes movie theaters in Brooklyn NY almost every month, starting when is 10 years old until I joined the Navy. I currently reside in Roscoe IL.

My last employment was with a Regal Beloit Corporation World Wide leader in Motors and Gears until March 21st 2014. My position at the time I retired was IT Technical Leader, for the EDI Ordering and Purchasing. I retired due to some medical issues, stress being the major issue.

Since I retired, I have been collecting Social Security. My check is monthly in the amount of 1,783.00. My wife Norma I Steiner, works for Wal*Mart full time. She is three days younger than I. My wife has medical issues as well. The largest being she has a pacemaker.

Since I retired, I paid off my home, car and most of our larger bills and all of our medical bills. Unfortunately medical bills still are our main source of expenses. Since I retired we are paying of all bills and expenses by cash. We are currently refurbishing the home we are living in and have been living in since Thanksgiving Day 1982. We have raised 3 children in this home, and over the years we have resided, replaced windows, new roof, and added air conditioning.

In July 2013 we redid the drive way completely with cement at a cost of over 7,000.00 dollars, paid in cash.

We have come once again to a time where our Air Conditioner, Bath rooms, Kitchen counter tops, possible cabinets and windows, Siding and Roof need to be upgraded once more.

The reasons for these projects are not only to upgrade the home but to also prepare it for sale. We plan to move to the Huntsville AL area, where one of my daughters lives with 2 of my grandkids. Not pertinent to the issue, my son and my son in-law, both are Lowes die hard customers.

Now begins my Lowes story

We visited our local Lowes in Machesney Park IL. Listed below is a list of the major items purchased and installed by Lowes to date.

First project – April -2014 – Heating and Cooling system
1. Trane XV95 – 60,000 BTU / 97% efficient 2 stage variable speed furnace with a
TCONT600AFF11MA/TCONT602AF22MA Programmable Comfort Control.
2. Trane Condensing Units 4TT6018-060H
3. Whole House Electronic Air Cleaner – TFD175CLFR000EA
4. Total Cost – 7,540.00

Second project – May – 2014 – Main Bathroom and Master Bathroom
1. Master Bathroom – Kohler Sterling Calk less shower surround and shower head and faucet. Toilet bowl and plumbing fixtures, purchased separately.
2. Main Bathroom – Kohler Sterling Calk less bath & shower system head and faucet.
3. Shower Door purchased separately at Lowes in DeKalb IL. Store #0059.
4. Kitchen – Sink and Faucet.
5. Total Cost – 6,535.21

Third project – July – 2014 –
1. Windows – Pella 3 Windows – Replace Bay window
2. 1 – Crank out to the Left, 1 Standard Open up and down, 1 Crank out to the Right.
3. 3 Screens, Trim – top Bottom Sides.
4. Total Cost – 2,645.80 – so far, there seven window left to replace.

Total Cost to date – 16,721.01 – this does not include other purchases that are not involved with the current projects, in cash 232.09.

Here are my issues.
1. Second Projects – Bathrooms
Minor Issue
The Bath and Shower Door was unavailable in the #2310 Machesney Park IL
The associate searched and located one in Store #0059 in DeKalb IL.
I requested that they have it transferred to the Machesney Park store. I was
told they could not transfer the product. I was told that I would have to go to
DeKalb IL and pick it up myself.
I was Surprised Lowes, does not allow a store to store transfer.

2. Third Project – Windows
Major Issue
Trim around the windows
The windows were installed on 8/6/14.
The window trim for the top of the windows was short in length. The installer
mentioned that they would talk with Lowes and have request that they order
reorder the trim with the correct dimensions. After a few weeks I contacted Lowes
and inquire about the status of the trim for my windows. I was told that is Pella
issue not a Lowes issue. I mentioned that I purchased the windows from
Lowes not Pella. After a few more minutes of discussing the issue, I was
informed, that they would speak with the installer about the issue.
Eventually after a few more weeks the installer calls, requests a date and time
that he could come and install the trim. We set up a date and time, when he
examined the newly received trim, the top piece was now at the correct length,
but the side pieces were to narrow. Again I spoke with Lowes and given the same
answer, Not a Lowes issue it is a Pella issue that I need to speak with
Pella.
To make this short, the installer called again and we set up a time to install the
NEW trim, same results as the above issue with the side trim.
Home Depot will match Lowes prices.
I am typing this on 10/08/2014; my windows were installed on 08/06/2014.
Over TWO MONTHS and The installation are still not completed.
This does not give me a warm and comfortable feeling that I should continue with the rest of this project and then go on to my remaining projects, which includes finishing the windows project, there are seven more windows to be purchased and installed.

The kitchen project to add a dishwasher and Quartz counter top and depending on any issue with the current cabinets, possibly I will need new cabinets as well.

We are looking out into the near future at installing new Siding, Gutters, Eaves and Roof.

As I mentioned above about the trim for my windows;

I was told that this is Pella Issue not a Lowes issue. I mentioned that I purchased the windows from Lowes not Pella.

Not only once but twice

Not a Lowes issue it is a Pella issue, that I need to speak with Pella.

Please give me ONE GOOD REASON why I should continue to do business with LOWES.

I could just as easily go over to Home Depot or Menards, who are only, just two blocks away.

I preferred Lowes because of the lower prices on certain items and the knowledgeable associates.

I worked in retail for over 5 years with Kohl’s as an associate, department manager and an area manager. Media Play as one of 5 store managers. There is no reason to ever tell a customer that they need to speak with the supplier, for the merchandize purchased in your store by that customer.

Thank you for your time.

The only complaint I have is for the employees. Why doesn’t Lowe’s move H.R. Managers around like store managers are moved. That way the buddy, buddy, kiss up and holy’er than tho style of H.R. Management doesn’t apply like it does at our store here in Sumter, S.C.. I’m not an employee. And I’ve never worked for Lowe’s. I’m just giving constructive criticism for the employees that have been overlooked, yet applying for full time positions every time one opens. I know one employee that has been totally devoted to the company for over five years and has saved thousands of dollars in merchandise that shoplifters have tried to steal. She’s trained numerous new employees that have gone on to full time positions. She’s still part time working twenty hours or less with no benefits. Yet constantly gets praised for her work and work ethic and there’s hardly a job in the store she hasn’t been trained to do. Her Department Manager has tried to get her more hours for her but is told Corporate is the one that sets hours. I know for a fact that Assistant Store Managers and employees throughout the store love her and have tried helping her get a full time position, but she’s constantly overlooked. Which leads to my point. She’s not buddy, buddy with the H.R. Manager. She doesn’t take the time to hang out in the back office gossiping because she’s always in her department helping customers and going beyond the job she was hired to do. So why don’t H.R. Managers get moved around like Store Managers? Maybe Lowe’s would have happier employees thereby helping more customers and keeping customers happy instead of complaining and helping employees move up to full time positions they deserve.

I have the same complaint about the springfield ma. store.I have worked there going on eight years.part time .less then 20 hours a week.
they just informed today on 10/20/2014 that i am laid off because of my availability..Ive had the same availabily for six years .ALL of my managers compliment me on my work.I try to do more than my share of work as I like to stay busy.
LOWES HAS NO LOYALTY TO ITS WORKERS WHATSOEVER.They could care less about us,It seems like the less you do the more chance you have of staying there as long as you kiss up to the store manager.

Lowe’s hates people that may be smarter than themselves as they want to think for you and follow their agenda. It is a Corporate politics at its best. You will stay part time because it cost them less.This is why they want part timers such as elderly people and high school dumbed down kids so they can just be used and when done with just tossed away. The new corporation of American business model is completely disposable. Thats how they accomplish their agenda with the local towns they want to enter by telling the local governments with the permits they will bring in so many jobs and then after all the hard work of setting the store and their soft and hard opening then its time to cut the overhead. Moreover, management only want’s “yes-men”

Lets start at the beginning, In 2002 I purchased ceramic tile for my kitchen in my brand new home. I went to the lowes around the corner because they were new and it was close. The sales person showed me a new way of installing ceramic tile that just came out from a new vendor. She told me that if I installed the way it was supposed to be installed and if it ever cracked it would be replaced under warranty of this new system. Well I spent $3500.00 got everything I needed and went to town, to start with I have never used nails on hardy backer board alway screws, but these were serrated nails for this new system, so OK i will follow the insturction so if something happens they will fix. Just for giggle and grins I put the tile down in the wash room the way I have always done it. Well guess what, the floor where the new system was installed cracked all over the place, my wash room didn’t crack a bit. well Lowes sent reps from the vendor and they stated they couln’t figure out what went wrong but they were not going to warranty the floor. Lowes didn’t even lift a finger to help get my issued resolved they told me that their hands were tied that the warranty was through the vendor. OK I dealt with it and replaced the floor a year later. Now moving to the present. I bought carpet 4 years ago with a 10 year manufacture warranty paid about $1200.00 for the living room, well the carpet started lifting, the person who cleans our carpet use to install and he made the comment that this carpet is bad, it wouldn’t travel in a straing line when he vaccum it. So I told lowes they sent the installer out to restrech the carpet because it was lifting all over. Well long story short, the vendor sent a carpet “expert” out to look at the carpet he stated he had never see this before but he would let the manufacture know about it. Well guess what, their finding was no manufactures defect with the carpet, it’s funny that this carpet in 3 room is the only carpet lifting up and not in a strait line it zig zags. I asked lowes if they were going to contact the vendor and ask them to make it right you know keep our customer happy. No again their hands are tied. So I am cancelling my lowes credit card and getting a Home Depot Card. In the past 15 years I have probably spent around $60,000 dollars in Lowes, my house was new no yard, no basement, no sheds, carports etc… maybe more than $60,000 but they get no more. Don’t purchase flooring from Lowes, Hell I not purchasing anything from lowes ever again. Well OK maybe a light bulb. they sell products that they don’t stand behind. Bad business and they have lost mine. And really they probably don’t care.

I left a comment below… no contact from management, too bad!
There are a lot of choices for home improvement type stores, besides Lowes and Home Depot there are smaller ones that back everything up with customer service.
I from now on will visit the smaller hardware stores, they seem to care about the customers.
My complaint below was probably never read… If it was a follow up would have been the customer service thing to do. I guess ignoring complaints is the Lowes thing to do.
Well, with your Union City store so close and convenient to me I will still travel the extra couple of miles and go elsewhere Too bad for me eh Lowes? Like you care!

My husband and I also made the mistake of believing that Lowe’s was a reputable corporation, before the start of our Lowe’s HELL August 8, 2013. After purchasing 6 appliances we ordered a complete kitchen remodel…from that point everything that can has gone wrong. Original promise of completion was Thanksgiving!!! There were wrong cabinets ordered, changes in installers (the original couldn’t get to us until Feb’14 after the delay in cabinet reorder), wrong measurements on the granite counter-top, my 15″ appliance garage is 10 1/2″ high….I could go on. BUT Lowe’s was thrilled to have my kitchen WORKING when the plumber was here on Christmas Eve Morning to give me water! Cabinets were completely done February. Now August 14th arrives and the refrigerator that has been plugged in since December craps out!! After getting EXTREMELY angry, I TODAY…5 weeks later..am headed to the store to use my store credit to replace said fridge since their CRAP A & E Factory Service Plan (Extended warranties) were unable to do anything near their job. As soon as this is delivered I will be getting extended warranties from separate companies and cancel theirs for my John Deere Zero turn, Rest of the appliances and I WILL NEVER ENTER A LOWE’S AGAIN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I will make sure and spread the word to everyone that I can possibly reach to prevent them the time investment I have had to make Lowe’s employees do the job that they get paid for and my time is just time lost.

I did a full remodel of my kitchen and decided to use Lowe’s in miami lakes fl for the cabinetry spent well over 12, 000 that was back in May, now in the month of September kitchen still isnt finish. Couldn’t complete the crown molding because they ship the wrong color for the risers , they didn’t order enough of the light railing so had to wait three weeks for that come in. One 18 inch base cabinet that I added took another 6 weeks then after sitting in there store for two weeks no one notify me that it had arrived .when the installer came to install it , it was damage so it too had to be return. So now it’s going to take another 6 weeks.The risers came in last Friday and yes the were damage with scratches and dents in them so now that too has to be reorder which is another three weeks. I have spoken with so many different managers it’s not fun. This has been my first large purchase with Lowe’s and my last. This experience has been awful all I want is to enjoy my kitchen that hasn’t happen as of yet. Maybe by Thankgiving I will be able to enjoy my kitchen.
Very disappointing:(

IT IS shocking to find this site and realize that we are NOT ALONE in our NIGHTMARE…
I think people should notify their State Attorney General, who is there to help Consumers against BIG companies and BAD business practices. as they are doing in the Lowe’s Installed Sales Department.
They really need to “clean house’ in this Dept, and start over. The use low-rate inexperienced contractors, not qualified for the job. Their prices are double what others charge. After shooping Lowes 35 years, we are just devasted and shocked this division is SO horrible.
EVERYONE Start to WRITE the Attorney General of your state as there are Laws against BAD Business Practices, against Breaches of Contract, and get Lawyers that work on Contingencyi bases–has to be for LARGE complaints—not just bad customer service.
There should be a LOT of Class Action lawsuits against Lowes for Breaches of Contract…..which is what is is if you spend a LOT of money in their Installed Sales Division…..David against Golith
Robert.a.Niblock is one of THE high paid CEOs in NC and this is supposed to be a FAITH BASED outfit?

I called to get a repair scheduled on my Samsung refrigator on July 28, I have called back three time since and gotten the same response we will have someone contact you. On Aug 28 I receive a call that says I will be at your house within 30 min to complete the repair. That would have been great, but I was out of town. Haven’t heard from anyone since. I have never had this kind of service with any other company. I will never purchase another appliance from Lowes again, but from all these emails I’ve read I guessing this company doesn’t care about there customers one bit. Every three days I have to dip standing water out of the bottom of my refrigator that I paid over $2400 for. NEVER AGAIN!!!!

My husband and I are building a home so we visit and buy a lot of supplies from Lowes. I called Lowes in Derby Kansas, store #2504 and requested to purchase a roll of wire for $258. I wanted to pay for this on my credit card and my husband pick it up since he worked three miles away. We live 50 miles outside Wichita, but he works there so it would be helpful if I called in the order and paid for it on my credit card and he pick it up on his lunch. The first time I called and spoke with the electrical department the call was dropped prior to my giving my payment information. I called back and was put on hold (forgotten). The third call I asked to speak with a Manager and after explaining to him about my two prior calls he too put me on hold. When he returned he informed me I could not make a purchase using my credit card for wire, I explained this wire was a roll for 1000 feet a complete roll on the shelf. He said he could not sell me the wire over the phone. I called the East Kellogg, Wichita store and was told there would not be a problem with my request. My husband had to drive 8 miles out of his way to their store but they were very nice and sold me the wire using my credit card.

Last week I was inside the Derby Kansas Lowes store # 2504 when I witnessed a store employee I thought to be a manager being extremely rude to a customer. They were up at the front of the store by the service desk. I’m not sure if the employee was Sharon or Vanessa, she had short blond spiked hair. She was yelling at this customer without any regard for the other customers in the store. I was shocked at her behavior and hope corporate will take the time to address and deal with her performance.

Both these situations I have commented on need to be addressed by the corporate office. Employees like these need to have training in Customer Relations for the betterment of the company or not be in a management position.

Now, I would like to recognized some great employees at this same store. Bobby in plumbing is very polite and knowledgeable. He has gone out of his way to help both myself and my husband whenever we cross his path in the store no matter the location. Ron and Corbin are also excellent employees who work in the building department, they took extra time to look in the back of the store and on the delivery truck to see if our needed building supplies were available.

Employees like these are the reason I have continued to shop at this Lowes.

Thank you!
Sue

I have had an issue that I have been dealing with since 4th of July.
I ordered a storm door from Lowes to be installed by them as well. Door came in on time and installation was a few days later.
4 days after installation a part broke (later to be found due to poor installation). I went to the store and told them of the problem and they said they would order me a new part.
After 3 weeks with no reply, I went back in only to find out the part was never ordered. So the assistant manager Jesus Castro ordered one in to be delivered to my home. Again weeks later I called and emailed asking where my part was.
Well the part was delivered to the store and they had it for the last two weeks yet they were telling me it would be delivered to my home. With no apologies they finally told me they had it so I picked it up last night. I went to install it and I found out that due to poor installation of the door to begin with, I cannot install it.
Now lest see how long it takes for them to get some one out to fix the problem.
Lowes… customer service is more than two words, I have yet to see it at your Union City store… all I have seen is stalling and rudeness from your management there.
PLEASE HELP !!!!!!!!!

officially in Lowe’s “hell”
after spending $5k on windows and doors, and ready to spend another $10k, I ordered Cali Bamboo from Lowes for kitchen floor. Flooring “experts” raved about it. Installer shows up and tells me now way, it is 5/8 inch think which will raise the floor enough that the appliances are then trapped and if a malfunction, floor needs to be ripped up. Lowe’s promises a workaround, and same thing happens second time. You would think an established company would be able to scope out a 300 sf floor. This has been going on since June 18. Have lost work days and deposits for other remodel projects scheduled after the kitchen floor was to be installed. Bamboo needs to adjust to a home’s humidity so my living room as a deposited with bamboo for 6 weeks. Nothing in writing, no single point of contact, no problem solving methodology . Some nice folks at the store trying their best; seriously poor systems. And I was excited do the whole house at Lowes. Instead of wasting money on marketing efforts to get us in the store, they need to provide customer service 101 training.

After reading all of the above e-mails, I realize I certainly am not the only one extremely disappointed with Lowe’s customer service. Have been dealing with an issue for a few months now — still waiting for a resolution on a project that cost about $2000.00 Hope that Mr. Niblock will rectify the attitude and policies of Lowe’s and put customers, who pay out there hard earned money, ahead of this poor quality customer service. To the credit of one assistant manager, who also seems to be getting the run around, I appreciate his continued work on trying to help me resolve my issue.

Quakertown PA store needs to invest in a better Management Training Program, as it appears the current classes (or at least the “graduates”) are failing miserably. They may learn security, scheduling and inventory….but they are severely lacking in Customer Relations skills. The first lesson should be, “if we lose customers, we’ll lose the store”!! I’ve noticed a difference in the way the employees on the floor interact with the customers, and today I discovered the reason……they are following the [low] standard set by the store. managers

They need a better system
I have a escrow acc at Lowes 5% dis and $20.00 delivery fee. sounds great.

When i try to use it , the process is about 45 min. for 1 purchase.
I was asked for my phone number 7 times
my address 3 times
2 times managers had to be called to override.
then asked all the same questions again.
Lowes should provide a card with phone number on it if the sales people cant rememeber it or write it down…. they ask over and over again..
I would like Lowes thoughts on this…
some time it takes 2 people to look at the screen and figure it out….
This is a issue each time I use the account.

Here is a transcript from my conversation with Synchrony about my Lowes credit card.
They are holding cleared funds from your accoun tholders, so that they can earn a few days interest on the money, while your account holders cannot use their available credit. They are ripping you off. Please get a new credit card company. It is one of the few things that Home Depot beats you at, hands down, and is costing you lots of business you do not know about. It’s a classic scam.

8:13:30 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: Initial Question/Comment: why do i only have $191 in credit available, when my account balance is a credit balance of $6062.62, and I have a $10,000. credit line. My available credit should be $16, 062.62, not $191.

8:13:36 PM : SystemSystem: Welcome to Lowe’s Credit Services Live Chat. Your chat may be monitored and recorded for quality purposes. A chat agent will be with you momentarily.

8:13:41 PM : SystemSystem: Rochelle has joined this session!

8:13:41 PM : SystemSystem: Connected with Rochelle. Your Reference Number for this chat is 1641392.

8:13:57 PM : AgentRochelle: Hello Andrew. Thank you for contacting us today.

8:14:14 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: can you answer my question, or refer it to someone who can.

8:14:20 PM : AgentRochelle: I’d be more than happy to check that information and I’m sorry for the inconvenience. May I kindly take 3 minutes to view the account?

8:15:17 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: yes. just get me some credit please.

8:16:11 PM : AgentRochelle: Thank you for your time and patience. We’ll get this taken care of.

8:17:54 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: i doubt you will. this happens every couple of weeks. i think i have it figured out. Synchrony holds my payment to Lowes and earns interest on it, and doesnt credit the money to lowes so that i can buy more materials. clever banking, but sounds like a scam to me. is that why GE spun you off.

8:21:11 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: That’s why you do not post balances on your online account ledger. That would make your banking scam more obvious. It only shows up when someone like me is prepaying their account.

8:23:24 PM : AgentRochelle: Thank you for your patience and I am sorry for the inconvenience it has caused you. Our record shows that we have received a payment of $14998.00 on 08/12 and 08/13. The payment was placed on hold. Usually, the payment hold takes 7 up to 21 business days. Once payment is released, it will be added to the available credit. I tried to check, if I’m able to remove the hold but it does not allow me.

8:24:19 PM : AgentRochelle: To further address your concern, it is recommended that you kindly call our Customer Service line at 1-800-444-1408 and request for a Support Team regarding the removal of the payment hold. I apologize again for the inconvenience.

8:25:02 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: It was an electronic transfer from Bank America to you. It does not take 7 days. You hold it for 7 days to earn interest on it before you release it to Lowes. It’s a banking interest scam.

8:25:57 PM : AgentRochelle: The systematic hold on your payment could be for one of the following reasons:

Large number of payments made within specific time period.
Previous Returned checks (NSF’s).
Payments on new account.
Out of pattern Payments.
Amount of Payments (high payments are generally held to ensure they clear).

8:28:47 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: The funds cleared my account on the 12th and 13th. The transfer began on the 11th. I simply want my cleared payments to be applied to my account. I am contacting Lowes and the appropriate banking regulators about this. This is simply holding funds to earn interest. Again, it is a scam. Those funds cleared electronically. That’s why GE spun you off, because you guys are not legitimate business people. Lowes should know. Banking regulators should know.

8:30:34 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: I make frequent payments because i am doing a big job and need materials. You will not increase my credit. Lowes will know. I hope they find another credit card company and you lose a big account. I will do my best. You will be in on the ground floor.

8:30:53 PM : AgentRochelle: I understand that your bank might have debited the payment from your account already. However, your bank has not cleared the payment for us yet. We are still waiting for that to happen. I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Rest assured that it will be available to your account once the hold has been removed. You may fax a proof of copy that the payment cleared your bank to help with the review and shorten the hold on your payment at 1-866-248-8040.

8:36:11 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: No, I think that is banker bs. My bank cleared those funds on the 12th and 13th. This is pretty cool to be on the ground floor of a scam like this. I really dont care if Synchrony is exposed, but I just need my funds properly applied so that I can buy materials at Lowes. I’m sure that Lowes wants that also. I am curious how they will react to my story. And the regulators. I’ll bet you a dollar that Synchrony is earning interest on funds that have cleared to them, but have not been applied to my account yet. Really, it’s a scam. I just cant believe that you guys are so stupid that you would not think it would be exposed, at least to your customer Lowes.

8:38:02 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: I already did that stupid fax thing. That’s what you make people do, while you are holding their money and earning interest on it. I wonder if that is even legal. The funds have been cleared, but have not been credited. Where is the money? Being held by Syncrony and earning interest for them. Simple but dumb.

8:42:08 PM : AgentRochelle: I understand that you are upset with the payment hold placed on the account. Your payment has been received and posted to your account. While the payment is reflected in your balance and interest charge calculations, it does not increase your available credit at this time. Our other option to have that payment hold to be removed is to fax a proof of payment that it has been cleared or contact our Customer Service line at 1-800-444-1408 and request for a Support Team to review the account for a possible payment hold removal.

8:44:13 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: yes i will do that, or bring cash to lowes, but again, i am exposing this to Lowes and Banking Regulators because it is a classic money-holding scam. I will be fun to see how it plays out. Thanks for your explanation, and remember, you were in on the ground floor. goodnight.

8:46:13 PM : AgentRochelle: I really appreciate your time and patience. Thank you for being a valued Lowe’s customer. You too have a good night.

8:48:05 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: Hey, you are not Lowes, you are Synchrony. You are costing Lowes business by holding their money from them while you earn interest on it. You are disservicing Lowes. Tell your supervisor. Lowes will find out tomorrow, so you can start cooking your books tonight. It should be a long night.

8:50:09 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: ps. sorry. I will bet that the funds are credited to my account tonight…

8:50:48 PM : AgentRochelle: I’ll go ahead and submit a feedback to them. Thank you for your time and patience.

8:51:29 PM : Customerandrew glatstein: but i am blowing the whistle on this anyway. good luck with your new company. really dumb–not you, the company.

Visited Lowe’s in Wetumpka, AL with my young daughter last Wednesday. I had two pull carts full of lanscaping plants, shrubs, trees, flowers, etc. When cashing out the cashier in the garden center told me the trees that were marked 50 percent off were not actually on sale. She said only the ones marked with red tags. I went back and read the sign on the table (which is where I got every single tree). The sign said “50 percent off all flowering and fruit trees”. I explained the sign as well as the fact that I got every tree from that table. She told me I was wrong.
So…. I went back to Lowe’s in Wetumpka, AL today- we have a new house I am trying to landscape. While in the garden center there was an older man filling pull carts with large crepe mertyl and other trees. He was telling another woman there about the clearance sign. The woman went over and started loading up as well. They both headed to the cashier inside the store. When the trees rung up at the incorrect price the man threw a fit arguing with the cashier then ran back and grabbed the sign off the table. The manager was called and they gave both customers the discount!
I called the manager Megan when I left and explained that just last week…. I was not given the discount. She said I should have brought it to their attention…. I did. She said I should have called a manager…. NO…. THE CASHIER SHOULD HAVE CALLED THE MANAGER.
I am not going to stand at the counter acting like trash asking to speak with a manager.
She said if it ever happens again… call a manager. I said… really…I think that’s the cashiers job. She told me to have a nice day.
I will NEVER go back. Home depot, Russell’s,Tractor Supply, Marvins and the local markets will get my business from now on.
Goodbye Lowe’s (never thought this day would come) and Goodbye Megan

I purchased a storm door. It took over an hour. Paid to have it installed. Installer came up after several calls and did not have necessary things to do it. The door is in my garage. I have called several times and talked to managers, etc and the door is still sitting in my garage. I keep getting calls asking if I am happy with my installation. One such call put me on hold for thirty minutes. My purchase was over a month ago. This does sound like any kind of service. Shall I wait to see how long this goes on. Maybe installed by freezing weather.

Had used my DD-214 until March 2014 when I was told I could get a drivers license with the word VETERAN across the front under the picture, The lady (who was the manager of the check out area) said it would be so much easier by doing this. Well,I got my appt. at the DMV, paid my $10 and received my new license in 7days. Have used the license since March with no problem UNTIL today, August 14th. I was told that they not only do not accept the license BUT they never did.
Spoke with the Asst. Store Mgr. and he said there was some confusion at the corporate level as to what type of ID they were going to accept going forward.
Someone needs to let the left hand know what the right hand is doing!

I have experienced exactly the same run around from my local Lowe’s in Tampa. However, I spent $35 getting the veterans drivers license! The manager I spoke with today, changed his story from an earlier version. Here in Tampa they will accept an ID that is issued to veterans who are being treated at the local VA hospital. In other words, if you are sick, perhaps have PTSD, you can receive the discount. If you are a healthy vet, you get no discount.
I’ve spent many thousands of dollars at Lowe’s over the years and today was the last time I’ll shop there.

I purchased a new Samsung dishwasher and refrigerator for my father’s condo from Lowe’s in Orland Park, IL and was told there was a rebate on cost of installation of the dishwasher. I went with their installer since it would be reimbursed by Lowe’s. Well, my father being 97 years old and legally blind did not know that the rebate that had come in his mail (even though I asked them to send it to my address) was in the form of a VISA debit card. When he asked me about it last week, I looked at it and saw it was the rebate for the installation, however it expired 3/14. I called Lowe’s rebate customer service and explained the situation and was curtly told “too bad, it would not be re-issued” by the representative and her supervisor! I asked, “What if it had been lost in the mail, would it be replaced? , to which she replied, “well, sorry, that wasn’t the case”. Again, just another example of corporate America ripping off senior citizens! Shame on you Lowe’s!!!

I have bought 3 exterior hurricane doors at the boca raton location. What a nightmare!!!! they have lost the order 3 times, yes 3 times and are as rude and unhelpful and blaming me for their mistakes. They wanted me to redo the order for a 3 time until the manager, Cory, stepped in and realized the order had to be in the system.
They do have nice doors but go buy them down the block at Home Depot. First you may actually get them and second Lowe’s doors are absolutely not worth the hassle

my wife works for you Lynnwood Washington store, and was assaulted by a shoplifter who was trespassed from the store. however, this lady keeps coming back into the store and nothing is done about it. security is called, and refuses to deal with her or pick up there phone when called. the management refuses to do anything such as call the police. whats it gonna take for Lowe’s as a company to better protect there workers? a death? I had hoped that Lowe’s was a better company than that, but sadly you are proving to me and others that you are not.

This is unbelievable. First, your incompetent employee nearly paralyzed me by having a load of 4′ x 8′ pieces of lumber fall onto me because the forklift operator had them angled too steeply, next, after we come to a paltry settlement for which I supplied 25 pages of medical and damage documents, ALL with my address on it, you send the check in a letter to the WRONG address, no tracking #, not even priority mail. In trying to talk to someone in the Corporate office, all I got was phone trees. I agree with all the numerous complaints, your company is not up to professional standards. I hope you get raked over the coals over the discrimination lawsuit in Florida.

Continuing to have issues with reimbursement from Lowes out of Waynesboro, VA. We had new flooring installed (tile and Pergo) and most of it was installed poorly with chips and scrapes on it. It needs to be completely redone and we want a refund. They also placed toilets in our tubs, scratching the tubs which now need to be re-glazed. The marble transition strip they installed was cracked through when they cut it to place it under the door jam and they installed it knowing it was cracked all the way through. Many more issues; however, no response from anyone even though Lowes’s acted like they would remedy the situation.

This is the worst company at handling flooring. I have spent thousands of dollars at this store in Leander Texas. We have purchased law care, gardening, lighting, washer, dryers, custom kitchen and bathroom etc.

We did a purchase of a wood floor for one of our $800,000.00 home. Lowes hired a contractor to do the work. The company not only mismanaged the project but the vendor raised our floor and made it uneven. To make matters, they where supposed to fix the problem under lowes direction. This work has not been done. So we ripped it out and are writing every consumer group possible. We are now forced to hire a new company and repay for the flooring. I will never use this store again. I can not get any help or support from the company. We have gone thru all of the hoops of the their change of command but still no resolution with the company. We are canceling our Lowes credit card as well with a 10,000.00 limit which we used. I am sure the stock holder are not aware of the mismanagement that is occurring. I have sold my stock today, I will never purchase it again. CEO, CFO and more importantly…..COO where are you? Why are customers not able to communicate with you or the corporation. Bad Biz. It reminds me of Walmart. ugh!

We own a construction company and have made numerous purchases with Lowe’s. We have had some bad experiences but this time I wanted to post a good experience. We were very please with the help of three employees from the Rockledge FL Lowe’s who went above and beyond to help us. There is no place that I can see to post “good reports” so I’m posting here. The three men, Bill Konecny, Neil Lavine, and Jonathan Koch, all helped us to make sure our product was was delivered safely and professionally. These three men should be commended for their help. Very few times are
the praise reports passed on but I felt this one should be!

I’m posting this to all my Facebook pages like westerns slope home remodeling. The grand junction lowe’s cabinet department either don’t know how to order the right cabinets or the installer likes to hack the cabinets up to fit pre-ordered appliances. If the cabinets have to be hacked return them all and buy from someone more experienced. I would say DO NOT BUY FROM LOWE’S THERE A BUNCH OF HACKS

It seems to me every time I deal with Lowes it is a problem. This time I am dealing with the EXTENDED PROTECTION PLAN. you would think if you purchased this all you would need to do when there is a problem is call the 888# they provide, then have someone come see if it can be repaired or needs replaced and then taken care of. NO that’s not what happens out of six major appliances that were purchased on one ticket the one that breaks is the one they tell me I returned to the store. So I tell the lady I am speaking with how did I return it when the dryer is in my garage. BROKE!!! So she has me read the Model# and Serial# off to her. And yes its a match!!! So tell me how did I return it???? So now they tell me It will take up to fifteen days to do paperwork. And they will send someone to come look at it. He comes the next day he determines I need a new dryer it cant be fixed. Once again still takes fifteen days to do paperwork, So I am without a dryer until they find the paperwork they are looking for. Because they still say I had already returned the dryer that is in my garage. Once again disappointed with dealing with Lowes!!

East Coast Water Systems July 3, 2014 at 7:49 am

I am a small business in Charleston SC that has sold tanks, pumps and water heaters to a few of the Lowes stores when they needed them for their customers. One store in particular is in Spring Texas that called and purchased a system from me in March of this year. With Lowes being as large as they are you wouldn’t think you would need to do a credit check but evidently I should have. We shipped everything to them per their purchase order. These items totalled over $20,000.00. For them that is no money at all. For a 10 employee company like myself that affects payroll and could cause us to lay employees off. I have contacted the store and they wanted conformation of delivery which we provided for them. We can show that they received them yet since then they will not returned my calls. I have a friend that is an attorney and they ignore him as well. If Lowes cared about anyone but themselves they would pay their bills. It looks to me like they build themselves off of small companies. I want everyone to know that anything you buy from them could have come from a small company like myself that they are not paying. I would never sell another item to them without payment up front. Thanks for the sleepless nights Lowes.

June 19th my wife & I visited Lowes in Ocala, FL to purchase a refrigerator. The one my wife selected showed only two in stock at that store. The salesman could only find the floor model which had numerous scratches, so he indicated one would be ordered and would be delivered in 5 to 7 days. We decided to open a Lowe’s account for the purchase and the refrigerator, the ice maker water hose and a 5 year warranty were all charged. As of one week later (June 26th) we had heard nothing from the store. I called three times on a Saturday afternoon before someone would answer the phone. I was told by customer service there were none of the model we purchased in the store and none shown as inbound to the store. I asked to speak to the store manager (name unknown) who stated he could only wait until Monday when their system updated and then they might be able to contact their distribution center in Washington D.C. to determine the status or our ordered refrigerator. He handed me off to the head of the appliance section where I asked if there were similar models on stock in their store ( we needed a refrigerator soon). She checked and said there were none and supposedly there were none of the unit we purchased in any of the surrounding stores. Frustrated at being put off by those responsible for customer relations at the store level, I contacted Customer Service at the Corporate Office on Saturday evening (kudos for being open at that time). I related the details of our story to the lady there who seemed upset at the treatment and the fact that no one had contacted us to at least let us know of the “problem.” She promised to have the company Director of Marketing call me on Monday afternoon (June 30th) to discuss the problem. We waited. Monday morning 9AM EDT I contacted the store’s customer service department to check on the order. I was again told none had come in but one was scheduled for delivery to their store for us on Thursday July 3rd and it was scheduled for delivery to our home on July 4th. Did anyone bother to ask if we had plans or would even be home that date? NO! My wife then decided to call the store manager again. He/She was not available but the assistant manager (Nick) listened to the problem, personally checked the store’s inventory and found that the two in the inventory were both badly scratched. He had Wendy from the store contact surrounding stores and located a unit still in the box for the model we purchased. She had the unit transported the approximate 28 miles to their store and delivered to us this morning (July 1st) by two of the best deliverymen we’ve dealt with in a long time. They did an excellent job in removing the old refrigerator, setting up the new one and taking great care of our home in the process.
For various reasons we were promised there would be no interest on the account for six months. The first bill showed up today, less than six hours after the unit was delivered. Had we waited for the promised delivery on 7/4/14 the bill would have gotten here before the item we purchased. The new credit card has just gone through the shredder. I will not purchase anything else from Lowes unless it is in stock. I will not use their account after this item is paid and this account will be closed! Out planned purchase of a new dishwasher, stove, kitchen cabinets and counter top at Lowes will most likely be Home Depot or other local dealers.
Did the Director of Marketing ever call? Heck NO. Obviously this promise was just a “carrot” just to get an upset customer off of the phone. If you promise a customer something…make it happen or at least have the backbone to call the customer and discuss the problem/issue…even if you have to have the janitor make the call and claim to be the “director”. Simply ignoring the customer and the problem just lost you a loyal customer.

I recently went to the local Lowes store in Waynesboro Pa., I needed front porch deck boards and when I went for them there was only 1/3 of what I needed. The dept. worker told me “they cannot get anything from another store because everyone’s doing inventory now”. Seemed odd, but okay, then I had to ask what can you do to help me, he replied he can order them but I would have to pay for them up front, this was considered a “special order”. If this is Lowes policy I find it to be offensive, but I paid for them none the less. He told me I would receive a call within 2 weeks, 2 weeks past and no call. I stopped Friday (6/27/14) afternoon to ask if the order had come in, I got double talk from the customer service person and I overheard her say “maybe someone put them in the rack” to another employee while she was on the phone with the lumber dept., That infuriated me and I went to the back to the lumber dept. to find out for myself. When I got to the aisle there was my order in the rack and was already being sold meaning that what I had bought was being sold a second time and now I didn’t have what I needed for my home. Maybe 400.00 isn’t a lot of money to a corporation but it makes a difference in my budget. The attendendant then told me that it was the second time that week that this happened like that was supposed to make me feel better. Again, the material I had ordered had already had some pieces sold. I had to point out that there were longer boards that were the same style they could make up the difference with, when I said that’s what’s going to happen or go get a manager he agreed to trade out the longer boards for what they had already sold.
This is such an unprofessional and unacceptable way to run a store. To be very honest after this I don’t know that I’ll ever step foot in that store again. There is and 84 lumber, Home Depot, and Carter lumber within 10 mile of my home but I try to patronize the stores in my home town but after this experience I don’t knee that’s going to happen again for Lowe’s.

Before Lowe’s opens any more stores you guys need to take care of the ones that are open now. Too many lazy employees. Very few employees are courteous or helpful. You need to check out the Ruston La location. They can’t find orders placed online and can’t pull another if they are lost.

Where to start…..

I recently went to my local Lowe’s in Hixson, TN (Hwy 153) and selected and purchased carpet for my home office. When I went in to the store, I took in the room measurements, but Lowe’s sent someone out to measure for themselves. OK. I was supposed to have had to pay for that, but there was some special, so it was “free”. It is now 3 weeks later. My installers picked up the carpet that was ordered and it is 2 feet too short for the room. There is not only not enough for the room, but there is not enough for the closets also. If they had just used my measurements to begin with, I would not have had to take time off work for the install, and would not have had everything from that room scattered about in my hose for any longer. I have been inconvenienced for 3 entire weeks by having to empty out my office at home (which I use regularly) and I have already hauled away the old carpet and pad. Also, because of someone else’s incompetence, I will have to take even more time off when they come back to install to correct their mistake.

I will not wait much longer! If this is not installed by this Saturday, June 28th 2014, I will ask for my money back plus damages….In COURT!

Sincerely,

Mark S. Whitt

Lowes needs a lesson or two in Customer Service skills. I bought the extra Lowes Warranty with my Sharp Drawer Microwave. It needs repaired and now over a month later I’m still waiting on someone to come look at it. An appliance repair center that is located an hour from me is coming out tomorrow after they cancelled the appointment that was for today. They said it could be fixed or not fixed by tomorrow. I have talked with many supervisors and even an Executive representative, Amy. If I was dealing with Best Buy Geek Squad I would have already had it fixed or replaced within a week! No one can be straight forward with me on how long I have to wait to replace a $900.00 microwave. The company can afford to replace it without me having to wait, but they refuse to satisfy customers.

The store I use is the one in Leander, Texas, and the folks there are courteous and helpful. I just had a big issue with a 2-month old Frigidaire laundry center and Monica, the manager, offered me an even exchange for a GE of the same type.

The issue I bring here is the lack of service providers in my area. I am in one of the fastest growing areas of the country (north of Austin, 7 miles west of Cedar Park) and Lowes had NO repair people in this area. When I tried to get my unit fixed, the repair people (Tyler Appliance Repair) were contacted promptly by the Lowes Service Center but they had to come all the way from San Antonio ( a good 90 miles south) and the were sluggish and un-communicative. It is 2 weeks since I first asked for service and still my brand-new unit is out of order.

The service providers need to be close to the store that sold the item and there need to be more of them. If I hadn’t had a service agreement, I could have called one of several companies in the area who do warranty work on Frigidaire but are not listed with Lowes or the Frigidaire Corp. (they have the same issue). Please do something to engage more service providers or let customers find their own in the area and have the Service Contract provide payment. Thank you!

We purchased a sink on Monday night at the Lowe’s on Precinct Line Rd, North Richland HIlls, TX 76182. Paid $500+ for sink & install. We brought the sink home. Person at Lowe’s said they will call for the install. They called last night, left a message that we could not even understand, foreign accent that just could not say anything to understand. My husband called the store & asked that someone who speaks English please call to schedule the appointment. This morning someone from the store call, obviously from the customer service department, asked what the problem was, my husband explained & she went off on him, said he must have a real problem because everyone speaks very well that calls, he said well my wife & I both could not understand her. The woman said well just bring that sink back & don’t shop here anymore….my husband was not happy & he told her off & hung up on her. Is this really the way Lowe’s does business? Why can’t an American citizen ask for an American worker to call?
Hopefully this gets addressed, because this person needs to get a new job, if anyone would hire her. VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. What has happened to customer service these days?

I purchased a bosch dishwasher 2 weeks ago. The delivery was supposed to be today. I called delivery 800 810-6102 last night 7pm (CA time), and they told me the delivery schedule had not come out yet. They told me I would get a call by 9pm (which shows on my invoice). Well 9PM and no call. When I called at 9, they were closed. Then today I called delivery again spoke to Connie, she could not find me on the delivery schedule. I am supposed to have a call from a Steve in one half hour to let me know when the dishwasher will be delivered. Lowes has always had excellent customer service, but I may not purchase a large item ever again. It is utterly stupid that I have to take off work in order to get this unbelievable run around.. I will post again if Steve calls and IF i get my dishwasher delivered today as stated on my invoice.

I have been fighting with lowes since May 22nd for a refund on my installation fees for flooring. When we had the Install done, we found that the installers stole food from my pantry, drinks from my fridge, and my husband’s wedding ring. They offered us $300 refund towards our $1100 install fees if we signed a waiver releasing them from all future claims. Absolutely not! Lowes will not buy me off with a lousy $300 refund and then not honor their flooring contract with me! I will continue to fight this and tell others about this horrible experience and the terrible customer service!

Two recent emails…still no resolution. Four scheduled service calls–two no shows/calls.

Within the last two years I have purchased a new washer and dryer, new freezer, and a new refrigerator from Lowes. I have purchased the maintenance agreement with each. I purchased my refrigerator last November 2013. Within a week the refrigerator stopped cooling and I had to have service. Now…for well over a month I have been trying to get my refrigerator fixed. California Appliance Tech came to my home on April 28 and determined the filter housing needed to be replaced. I was told it would be 3-5 days for parts. I waited, and waited and waited. Nothing! Finally I called only to never get my calls returned! Finally I called Lowes and they contacted California Appliance Tech and was told the parts were on backorder. It would be another week or so. I waited, and waited and waited. Finally I called again and was told they were still on backorder and that I should just turn the water off to my refrigerator. Thanks!! I guess I will just buy ice every day instead of getting my new refrigerator fixed! I have been out the cost of two filters and lost food items as my refrigerator leaks water the humidity level is ridiculous!! I finally called Whirlpool who sent the parts to my house!! Now I have waited for two days on two separate occasions for California Appliance Tech to come and fix my refrigerator only to have them not show or CALL!! I have been very patient and understanding throughout all of this!! My patience are gone!! I was told by Lowes La Habra Assistant Store Manager that he would like to replace the refrigerator, but he did not have authority. I was told by another manager that it would need to be deemed defective! The service is defective!!! Can that get me a new refrigerator???? This type of dis-service should be embarrassing to Lowes!! You bet I want someone to call me! I am tired of mopping up water in my refrigerator and throwing out food!! I have also bought two filters thinking that was the problem and out the cost of those!!

Last scheduled service…05/30/14–I was told they would be there between 12 and 6pm. They showed up at 8pm. Again, not able to fix the refrigerator.

Mr. Robert Niblock & Mr. Michael A. Jones,

I am in disbelief in the unbelievably poor and lack of customer care I have received from Lowe’s after NUMEROUS attempts. I purchased a refrigerator last November 2013. While it is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, I cannot seem to get Lowe’s to fix it or replace it!!! I have had service scheduled at my home on four different occasions–two of which no one ever showed up or called! The refrigerator leaks so profusely on the inside that we have had to turn the water to the refrigerator off completely. I have spoken to several assistant store managers at Lowe’s as well as the store manager. While I get several “I am so sorry’s!”, I have yet to have anyone care enough or value me as a customer to genuinely want to resolve the issue immediately. I have left a message for the executive customer care over a week ago–no call!! I was assured last Saturday morning that I would get a call from a supervisor within two business days–that expired yesterday. I again called the executive customer service this morning and was told that no one else could speak with me because they “case manage” and there was only one person who could help me–the person who has never returned my call.

Again, I am at complete disbelief how little Lowe’s cares about me as a customer. In the last two years, I purchased a washer and dryer, stand-alone freezer, and refrigerator from Lowe’s. I purchased the service agreements with each of these appliances.

Mr. Niblock, this service is appalling! I have no doubt you would be embarrassed to know your customers are being treated this way. If this situation were held in your home, you would surely be very frustrated. Do you have the time to take off work and wait for someone to show up or call and they never do???!!! Twice someone has been to my house as well and not been able to fix the refrigerator!

I am asking that someone contact me who CAN resolve this! The only proper solution at this point is to replace the refrigerator–I should NOT be asked to wait again for another service provider!! The RIGHT thing to do is REPLACE the refrigerator. This is not some top-of-line expensive refrigerator. It is a Whirlpool WSF26C3EXW01, Serial HR33818540. Again, I purchased this refrigerator approximately six months ago and this current situation is not even the first issue! We had service for the refrigerator within one week of getting it. I have purchased filters that I did not need in trying to resolve the issue and I have lost food in my refrigerator. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!! PLEASE SEND ME A NEW REFRIGERATOR!!!

For the record, if Lowe’s waned my business (or my friends and their friends and their friends/family), you would contact me and say, “please go to your nearest Lowe’s and pick out any new refrigerator and we’ll happily deliver it. We’re sorry for the way you’ve been treated!” This would be something I would RAVE about with family and friends!! Things happen! Appliances don’t always work the way they should! People and businesses have opportunity to rectify situations that cause consumers to be happy to continue to invest in company that stands by their products and service. So frustrated and disappointed!

I went to the Lowe’s store # 0188 , in Youngstown,Ohio on 5/24/14 and spoke with associate Lee about coming to my house and measuring for cabinets / flooring for whole house. Set an appointment up for 5/28/14 @ 9am. Well that day comes and he was a no show. I called the store and spoke with Lee and he said his phone forgot to remind him of the appointment and wandered if I wanted to just forget about it. I said no I need this done today. He ended coming out at noon and measured cabinets and kept complaining about how this was just a lot of measuring to do for flooring and then left. Do to his constant complaining about the flooring and his hesitance about it I couldn’t trust he was doing it correctly so I hired another company for the flooring, but I am still needing the cabinets from Lowe’s. So I waited to hear from Lee and was told by him he would have it all done by 5/30/14, but when I called back that day it was not done yet and was told it would be done 5/31/14. So I went back to the store on 5/31/14 and spoke with manager Lee about the whole thing and was told that Lee the associate had did everything wrong and should have come out with contractor first. The manager Lee said he would look into it for me. So I paid the $75 for a contractor to come out on 6/2/14 and he measured and said I should be hearing from the store about final price. Well today is 6/4/14 and I called the store this morning at 9am and was told the associate Kevin in cabinets is handling my cabinets and he doesn’t come in until noon and will have him call me back. So now I’m still waiting and if he doesn’t show up for work , I will be waiting another day. I’m going to be spending a nice amount of money (cabinets,countertop,sink ,plus installation) with Lowe’s but never seen such unorganized and unprofessionalism before. This will be the last project I do with Lowe’s and if they don’t get their act together this one won’t happen either.

I had the worst experience with a gate install. My project started feb 28 2014 with meeting a member from the install team. That meeting went well and I signed into a contract with Lowe’s for 2 vinyl gates, that was in March. The first week in April the contractor came out to start the install and found out the wrong brackets where ordered. New ones where ordered. Two weeks later, I called 3 times and was told they would find out what was going on and call me back. I never heard from anyone. I went to the store finally and spoke with a manager. Long store short. My gates where installed, there was large gaps and looked unfinished. The store decided to order a new panel. It is now June 2014 and I haven’t heard from anyone as of yet. Not from the store manager, install manager or contractor. It should never take over 3 months to complete a project your paying for to look professionally finished.

On May 23, 2014 we purchased a Broan Range Hood. It took until June 2, 2014 to be installed. The Broan Hood we received was damaged and the store in Westminster #568 has not been helpful in that they should have taken immediate action to replace the Broan Hood Vent the same day. I have waited all day to receive complete satisfaction and it has not happened! Apologies do not fix a damged good!

Dear CEO,
My husband and I have bought many appliances over the years since Lowes in Hanover, PA opened. But we will not buy another. Not quite 2 years ago we bought a high end Samsung washer and dryer which came highly recommended by the sales staff. Within a month the washer had to be replaced, The drum in the dryer broke and now the lock on the washer had to be replaced for $220. Since your company wants nothing to do with any appliance once it leaves the store, we deal with Samsung certified repair man who is very happy to repair defective Samsung products. He said his business is booming. He told he will probably see us again very soon. How can Lowes in good conscience sell such defective products? We are nwt buying from a dealer who stands behind every appliance they sell.

Lets begin with I like Lowe’s better than the competition. but my recent experience drops that down some. I purchased a new shower ensemble at Lowe’s Poughkeepsie New York ,when I purchased it I ordered a left side drain . When I got it home I saw it was a right side drain . I called the store to tell them of the problem they connected me to someone who said he would check and cal me back. He never did. So my contractor said lets see if we can use the right side drain base , which he did with a little more work. Then we opened up the side wall box and to our surprise a hole was drilled into it , so someone had purchased this , damaged it and returned it to the store and they put it back on the shelf , without checking it first. then I had to drive back to exchange it which lost alot of time then I could not see or talk to a manager. they would not pick up the phone The girl at the return desk handled the situation she should be a manager.Not happy with the management at Lowe’s Poughkeepsie

Demetrus,
This is ridiculous since your corporate office has supposedly been in touch with Leland at the Lowes in Jackson, Michigan all I’ve been is jerked around like an idiot.
Don’t get me wrong they came out and “sealed” the roof, it took them 10 minutes. I told them we had ordered snow brakes for the roof, and they knew nothing about this but said they’d return my screen they ruined and put it back on for us within a DAY. That was four days ago.

I was also informed that ADAM DELANEY was supposed to be in touch with me throughout this whole roofing process since he is the owner of the contracting company.

I’ve NEVER TALKED TO HIM!!! I was told yesterday that we would have our ceiling fixed by the end of next week. When Raymond roofing was out here to fix the leak in our roof they took pictures of our ceiling inside, and he only took ONE PICTURE OF THE EXACT SAME SPOT, he didn’t get them all!!!

I tried to get Adam Delaney’s phone number to talk to him and the store manager LELAND told me he didn’t have it, yet this ADAM DELANEY was supposed to be

keeping in contact with me throughout the roofing process. When my husband signed the contract for getting our roof done he told Keiser construction that he wanted the snow brakes put on (they keep the snow from piling off the roof like an avalanche).

I’m at my wits end right now and I don’t see the receipt where they even bought these snow brakes!!!!

I’m going to take other action, the assurance of Raymond roofing that our ceiling wouldn’t collapse somehow does not make me secure.

I will rate you on every website I have and as I said I’ve published an award winning book that is currently being made into a movie and trust me I have a lot of

links on where to rate you. SEE BELOW!

I am also sending this letter and your replies to every Lowes corporate email address I can get!

What is it going to take to get these goofballs going at the Jackson Store and what type of compensation am I going to receive for YOUR SCREWED UP FRANCHISE!!!!!

The roofing company was originally supposed to put up these metal poles on our roof to stop snow from stockpiling and then coming down all at once, they were also supposed to REPLACE the screens they ruined while putting the roof on, and we were told they’d do this back in December, and yes you guessed it nothing.

There is so much more to this catastrophe than you can realize. The original roofer was fired due to their poor work no only on our house but others. The first assessor they had come out was named Lori, they have let her go too. When TJR roofing or Raymond roofing not sure what it is. told us they couldn’t get to us until their clients were taken care of first then when they had some free time they’d make an appointment! I truly thought when you purchased a job such as a roofing job from Lowes and if something went wrong you would be the MAIN priority. And yes this is John’s wife. I’m the one with the book, see below, but I’m tired of these people putting us off. Leland is even starting to do it. I don’t get this at all! We would like something in an act of good faith to show us that Lowes is not as bad as we think it is! Lori & John Hinderer

Comments :We bought your material and had your store in Jackson, Michigan set up the appointment with a roofer who would put a metal roof on our house. The roofer who did it is now fired, but while here, did not caulk the roof correctly causing a major leak in our dining room which could collapse at any time. We got the roof in Jan. 2013, the leak began before Thanksgiving in 2013. We notified Lowes they sent out someone TWO WEEKS later to assess it…..and the assessor is also now FIRED, her name was Lori. Jan. 2014 leaked majorly again and were told the first warm day someone would be out to fix it MARCH WE STILL HADN”T HEARD FROM LOWES. In the meantime between March and now, our roof has leaked three more times, I always calling the store and speaking with a girl named Jennifer who didn’t know ANYTHING for supposedly being a roofing supervisor. They assigned us a roofing company TJR roofing, that was three weeks ago and they told us they would come out that weekend. Weill it’s been two weekends and no one. I finally called (this is my last straw before I start contacting someone who will do something) and spoke with Leland. He said he’d call me back that was this afternoon, we will SEE!!!! I wonder how many weeks we will have to wait for this. I can’t tell you how MAD and disappointed in LOWES I am. We spent over 10,000.00 to get this metal roof and it seems like we should have been a customer who would of got Priority care when our roof leaked, instead we were told by the roofing company that they had OTHER CLIENTS they had to see before they could come to our house@!!!! Lowes has put our family in a dangerous situation by allowing the ceiling to become so damaged that it could collapse at any moment. I want some answers and compensation. Or I will be all over with rating your store on every website I have, and I have many. I was in a POW camp in Iran the day after 911 x6wks where I was raped beaten and tortured.

The water didn’t run to the wall with the old counter top. Then I get a call advanced told Lowe’s this time my cabinets weren’t level. I guess know I have $3000.

On Wednesday, May 21st, an installer contracted from Lowe’s came to install a sliding glass door. Before coming, he stated that the entire job would take about four hours. He arrived at 10:30 and left around 12:00. Needless to say, the door is smaller than the previous one (someone from Lowe’s came and took the measurements). There is no casing around the door. Yellow glue and bare wood are showing everywhere. It looks awful. I had new countertops and a door put in by Lowes in the last year and they were perfect, but this is shameful. I went to Lowe’s to complain and the store asst. manager said he would have the owner of C and R to call, but he did not. I called him repeatedly until he finally called me back. This is not acceptable.

This is definitely a complaint regarding your Lowe’s store, Dallas, TX, Hampton @I20
I am in the process of a huge home project. I got five gallons of paint day one; later when I went to get a second five gallon can I was told they had none… ok, so may I have five one gallon cans at the price of the five gallon can? Well, we don’t have five one gallon cans. Really? and this cannon be honored. I called spoke to “Norma” who I was told was an ASN (maybe) but position is over managers… She agreed to and stated this “idea of mine” should have been honored. However, she will not be in on the next day so ask for James. OKAY… when we went in James was NOT IN EITHER. “Go figure”. Because I am in the middle of this I get what they have and pay what I have to get it. Camel’s back break: We go to get another gallon today (5/21) they have NONE. We are told there are some in Lakewood (really) and Cockrell Hill, but Cockrell Hill has only four gallon cans. We rush out to Cockrell Hill and we are told: “Oh we have lots of this paint. Who told you that?” Now I have been a Lowe’s fan for a number of years and my friends have moved to Home Depot; I’m about to buy new appliances…I know I am only one person and I can’t shake a limb toward your profit or loss – but may I say: One by one – piece by piece a huge tree of any size can be cut down. – Please adhere to how you serve your customers one by one. Thanks and “be blessed”.

I purchased some outdoor furniture on 5/12. I was told it would be assembled on 5/16 and delivered on 5/19. On the morning of 5/19 I get a call from the delivery driver telling me that all of my purchase was not on the truck. The love seat and coffee table were not in stock. Called the store. Got passed around by 3 people. Finally spoke to someone who informs me that they sold all they had in stock and had placed orders or more that should arrive “some time this week”. When I asked why I didn’t get a call on Friday, 5/16, when they were assembling my furniture, she says, “I guess they were hoping it would show up today (5/19).” When the delivery guy gets to my home, he asks where I want the boxes. Yep. That’s right. The chairs had not been assembled. I was not able to assemble them myself. You see, I had a surgical procedure on 5/14 and was looking forward to recovering and relaxing on my new furniture. Sent the chairs back. Got a call from an assistant manager who was apologetic and told me the chairs would be put together and delivered on 5/20. Said the loveseat was at the DC (I’m assuming he was saying “distribution center”. Couldn’t give me a date or time I would get it. Oddly enough he told me the coffee table was in stock and couldn’t explain why it wasn’t on the truck. ‘Course, I’d have to send it back ’cause it would’ve been in a box too. I AM PISSSED! I made a purchase on 5/12. The purchased cleared my bank account on 5/13. I want what I paid for! This is the kind of bad service that will send me to Lowe’s competitors for future purchases.

Lowes 740 i n St are not stockPetersburg Florida has got serious issues amongst them being there cutting saw down for over a week At peak selling times.their staff in the lumber and building material area are horrible and their manager does not help anybody at all.as a contractor I can spend nearly 2,500 dollars daily on building material and from this point I have to go across the street to Home Depot to get my material because they are not stocked with what myself or any contractor needs. Plywood 3/4 inch sanded cost 45.00 a sheet they can’t do any cuts not even half rips because I would do the rest. It’s to fit it into my truck for counter top building. Well 7500.00 just went across the way my new weekly bill to home Depot . Want my money? Fix 0740 saint Petersburg bring back the old manager Zeus who knew what the customers need. I have never been more upset with something that is easy to fix. But after your companies lose 50 more like me maybe that number will be at a level that somebody will respond. I don’t want a love call from the store just fix 740 so I can work and make a living and keep things flowing.

Will never shop at Lowe’s again. Their sales people don’t know their products. Coordinating with their installation crews is so difficult. 1-1/2 weeks ago, we purchased a dishwasher, stove and microwave. Still no sign of the dishwasher or microwave. My husband has had to go to the store – 25 miles away for various reasons with our order – microwave didn’t fit despite us giving the correct measurement and we had to order another product, each time spending at least an hour and a half on the process. The communication between the changing sales people and installation crew is abysmal! We have received calls from Lowe’s but when we call back, no one knows who called. Meanwhile, our kitchen is totally a wreck because we took down the over-the-stove microwave in anticipation of it’s arrival. The dishwasher is halfway out on the floor thought it was promised within a couple days of our order.

I also went over to the flooring area looking for a product to renew the look of my floor. The sales person in flooring gave me product that COULDN’T be used on my floor. Didn’t know it and had had to return it.

Ok then order my right fridge and i’m not paying for anything that would be fair Lowe’s thinks we as consumers are dumb and and don’t know right from wrong but i do and they have not made anything right it being on for week now i’m even using thier Fridge so i have not Fridge and no money has been refunded to me either so i guess the next step is to contact the BBB and file complaint .

I bought PergpMax in October 2013 and installed by Lowes subcontractor in November at this location (2365 25th street north, St Petersburg, FL) by December I observed the floors showing blistering or swelling so I called Lowes immediately they send the Randy the guy who installed the flooring and took pictures, didn’t hear from Lowes until I called; Lowes representative told me she will call Pergo this is already February as promised Pergo shows up with more pictures and asked me if I have spare of the flooring he wanted to see if what type of flooring I have, a box left in my garage and shows him PergoMax is which surprisingly being a Pergo representative doesn’t know their product. He went on of asking how I cleaned the floor and told him I was suggested by the installer from Lowes to clean the floor with product for laminated from stores which I bought Bona product again bought at your store Lowes. He left…being naive I was counting it is already two months still haven’t heard from either company so I called again to the store it seems took forever to get somebody every time I calls it goes back to the operator (that should’ve a sign what kind of management I am dealing with) but patiently waited and spoke to a nice lady name Shutanna (if I spelled it correctly) she promised she will the answer and she did; she said Pergo told her that the product I am cleaning with is the cause of the damage but as far as Pergo signs at Lowes it is lifetime warranty which I read Pergo warranty who it cleans and how to care of no suggestion that result to the product to blister or swelled. So here I am being bounce around and the store manager suggested the store is not liable for the floors that we bought with signs lifetime warranty.
If the company failed to comply with the promise of warranty don’t you think the store has obligation to to inform the company that their product doesnt sustained lifetime because if you checked your store not all flooring doesn’t have lifetime. I am Lowes long time customer bought everything from appliances to floors even my marble tile purchase in November also bought at the same store now I left neglected and angry, frustrated no family should’ve been through like Ive been, it is May still waiting, I need full refund for the amount 4,191.05. Lowes can remove the laminated floors and replaced it with more headache free or give me my full money.

I wished I purchase hard floors and dealt with termites (which I feared because I leave in FLorida) at least I know who will helps me.

The Lowes store in Pineville Louisiana has one of the worst employee customer service ever. This morning I called into the store was transferred to the flooring department, no answer after, 12 min cut off, called right back was transferred again after 5 min operator pick up sent me somewhere else, I spoke with a lady she couldn’t get anyone in flooring to answer, so she finally got me a price, but could not give me the number of pieces in the package. She said she we go to the department and get the information and call me back, that was 3 1/2 hours ago and still no call.
NOW HERE’s the KICKER: I had two more people from my office call the store to inquire about two different products and they got pretty much the same response as to wait time and knowledgeable people that new the product.
So I went to Home Depot and purchased my flooring.

Dear Lowes, I bought a John Deere 140 tractor 2 years ago. Now that my grandson has left the area, I had to mow my own lawn. Well guess what? I tried on my own to start the tractor, move it forward, backward and mow even after reading the manual. Well, nothing moved or mowed. I call my Burton, Mich. Lowes on Court St. and they asked Brad Irwin to stop by and he did after his work hours on 5-7-14. He demonstrated all the features, and how to use it. Then I was to do the same as he observed. Then guess what? I could mow my lawn before another rain began in Michigan. Thank you Brad and thank you Lowes. Carol Hunt of flint, Mi.

Wow. I was going to leave an email complaint but after seeing all the other complaints here, I think I will forget trying to solve my delivery problem and just get my money back. I too own a business, and am in fact the CEO/Founder of my company and I am shocked by some of the comments here. It would seem your company has a lot of problems in their local stores that even if you can’t fix them, should be addressed, not ignored. In this social networking day and age, ignoring customers is just crazy. I assume you all got the same business lessons in college that I got, that says it is ten times harder to get a new customer into the store than keep an existing one. AND, people will tell other people quicker about a bad experience than a good one. Rick Damron, where are you ? For someone at the corporate level and in charge of store operations, these people deserve at the very least some recognition of their complaints, even if not by you or your underlings. In closing I would say, I see the same mistakes being done here as was done at Blockbuster, and we all know how that turned out…………. But hey, you’re making your $700,000 and sleeping well at night, right ? At least for now………….

I was let go today due to an argument with another associate which refused to clean up a mess in an aisle ,I was a Department Manager for Lumber at South Pueblo Colorado Lowes Store 2742 . The reason I was let go was stated that I was a Manager and should know better , the Sore Manager Jeff Pinkert said I did not follow the Business Code of Ethics and should not have verbally reprimanded the associate or stooped to his level and lost my temper and act unprofessional . The Store Manager has been trying to get rid of the original store opening associates ever since he became the Store Manager here . I have received nothing but good reviews and accommodations prior to his arrival ( Jeff P.) Mr. Pinkert twists policy and procedures to his advantage to manipulate things to enable him to write associates up . I was not given a final pay check which showed my earnings vacation and holiday pay outs or any formal paper work of any kind stating that I had been Terminated which is in violation of Lowes final pay policy as listed in the employee transition information on My Lowes Life which states that I my final pay should have been direct deposited and should have received a deposit advice to be printed as I will lose access to Myloweslife.com. I find it Ironic that even at the end Jeff Pinkert can not seem to follow policy when it matters most to the company . What a real asset to Lowes Jeff Pinkert is NOT! he is apoor example of a store manager who will tell you one thing to your face and then stab you in the back. Lowes has changed over the years since I started 7 years ago it use to take care of its employees and all Lowes cares about is the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR it could care less about its employees or its customers .

I would just like the powers that be to know what I became aware of while in the Waycross, GA store. While browsing through the store, I saw a gentleman in a red Lowe’s vest snapping pictures of various shelves, products, etc. but while he was taking pictures he was complaining…about everything. When I finally spoke to an associate and asked who the gentleman was, I was told that it was the Market Director and that he routinely visits stores, taking pictures, complaining, and immediately sending pictures out to other stores (which I imagine is his way of berating and embarrassing the store he’s at into compliance?). As I went back to browsing in another area at the front of the store, I overheard him speaking to who I assume is the store manager in, again, a very negative manner. According to other employees, this is the norm but I am horrified at the way he is allowed to degrade and humiliate people! Aside from the fact that he may have thought they were alone or out of earshot of customers, that kind of manager is dangerous. If he is doing and saying these kinds of things out on the sales floor, what is it like in a closed office with him? That management style is not motivating or conducive to positive growth, development or morale! He needs to be reined in and re-trained in Emotional Intelligence and effective leadership at the very least! Speaking as someone with decades of successful business experience, I hope you heed my advice and start asking questions! Please feel free to contact me via email (but only by someone above the level of your company’s market directors, to ensure a proper follow through).

Sincerely,
Chris Hill

After dealing with the management at your Brodie store in Austin, Texas, I do not believe Lowe’s values its loyal, long-standing customers. We have shopped at Lowe’s for years and spent tens of thousands of dollars at Lowes. I never thought I would say this, but after this last experience with this store, we will be taking our business to Home Depot.

I was a part time head cashier at Lowes 607 and was told I was getting cut to 10hrs a week and I couldnt do that so I had applied for FT head cashier and they hired somebody that was new the store over me and they wanted to get rid of as many part timers as they could so I did them a favor and left, I did not give a 2 weeks notice but I talked to almost every one of my managers in the office before I left and I tried to get rehired and someone put me on the do not rehire list. I do not know what I did to make them feel like I was a horrible employee. They was all telling me take care of yourself first like they were all for me leaving because they understand I cant make it on 10 hrs a week but now they put me on the do not rehire list. I feel that Lowes 607 picks their favorites and if they do not like someone they will put you on that list just to do it. I feel like they treated me like shit and I came to work on time everyday and did what I was asked and then they going to treat me like this. Corporate needs to handle their stores better because they treat their employess like trash. And the person I believe did this was the HR that has no clue what she is doing and picks her favorites! She is a very hateful woman and does not need to be in that spot. EVERYBODY at 607 when I worked there refused to talk to her because she was sooo rude. HR personnal are supposed to be there to talk to if you need something right? Well not her!! She is so miserable in her job and she shows it to the employees! Lowes 607 does employees dirty!!

We ordered bricks for our garden online and were told that they would call us for delivery.
No one called, so I called the store and was told the delivery would come on Saturday. By noon, no one had arrived. We had worked diligently to lay down the foundation for our retainer wall and needed the bricks before it rained on Sunday. I called back and spoke to the Manager at the LOWES Buford GA, who told me that they were not able to deliver he bricks because his driver had gone home. He said he would waive the delivery fee and deliver the bricks on Sunday at 9 am. At 10 am, I called the store again, and was put on hold three times, by a very rude receptionist. I spoke to store manager, FINALLY, who said they had to send the driver to Athens and they would call me back with a delivery time. They have still not called me. I will never shop at LOWES again. My business will go to HOME Depot.

I was shopping in Lowes garden shop yesterday around 11:oo a.m, I heard an employee talk to another employee like she was trash in front of customers beside me. The womens name was Patty I believe, the other women was I believe Beth,. If Patty talked to me like she talked to the other employee in front of customers the way she did I would have kicked her teeth down her throat. What kind of people to you have running these stores. I am going to call home office and report this rude, uneducated pile of garbage you call an employee. I will no longer be buying anything from Lowes. I have bought a $2,500 refrigerator,$500.00 dishwasher, new toilets, garden products up the wazoo, new carpet, and numerous other merchandise. I will no longer shop at the Murphy , N.C. store ever again. This employee Patty in your garden shop is a real piece of trash. I will make sure my family and friends will no longer shop at this store either.. SHAME ON YOUR EMPLOYEE FOR LACK OF MANNERS. THANK YOU MRS. IRVING.

We purchased a fridgidare gallery series refrig.with upper and lower ice maker.2years later the bottom ice maker quit.We purchased extended contract and reported the problem.First it took three weeks for contractor showed,another four weeks to get the part,service tech.was two hours late showing up,replaced ice maker and found that was not the problem.He said he would have to order a water control valve.Never had a clue how long it would take and no response from contractor.I am a retired Master electrician with 40 years experience and business in HVAC,electrical commercial,residential work and have never treated a customer so unprofessionaly.I am done with lowes and there extended warranty and would advise that they do a little investigation on their service contractors.

I purchased over $7k in products, services and extended warranty last year from the Lowes store in Morene Valley,CA. I purchased a Whirlpool French door refrigerator and since I purchased the refrigerator I have had 7 service calls. In fact with a week’s time I had three to where the service provider replaced the switch, circuit board and now the compressor is out! The service provider deemed the refrigerator not repairable. I have been without refrigerator for three weeks and Lowes Extended Warranty Department will not replace the refrigerator! As a customer that has been through the extended warranty, I am extremely upset on how they have treated me. It is apparent this model is a lemon! Me an my family have been inconvenienced and we lost food! I hope Lowes realizes they lost a customer to Home Depot and Sears and all my family members and friends! I will tell everyone that Lowes Extended Service Plan is broken! I hope I get a call from someone who cares and can help

I purchased a $800 Husqvarna snowblower the end of November 2013. Due to the fact that there was no snow we never started the snowblower until 3 weeks later. Unfortunately it was defective and had to be replaced. Immediately, Lowe’s in Ware, Massachusetts came to my home, validated that it was defective and replaced it within 5 hours. In March after 4 major snowstorms, the snowblower’s auger release was sticking, screws had popped out of it. Again, Lowe’s came to our rescue, picking it up and sending back to the company for service and delivering it back. Excellent customer service. So happy that Lowe’s is in our town. I really appreciate your excellent service. A Loyal Customer

Just wanted to give a shout out to Mgr Tony Kronback on the Lowes Niagara Falls Blvd store in Amherst, NY. After many, many unsuccessful attempts to get a 36 inch Allen and Roth Norbury vanity for our bathroom that was not cracked!! – we finally got a perfect one white-gloved delivered at 5PM on Sunday, 3/23. Tony was true to his word and got us what we wanted. We’ve been exceptionally pleased with the customer service we’ve gotten from Lowes throughout our renovation projects the past year and a half. Cindy Buettner at the Transit Rd store in Clarence designed our gorgeous kitchen and she was a dream to work with also. Thanks Lowes!! We’ll be back. 🙂

I have been a customer of lowes for many years, in the past 10 years I purchased from 10 to 20,000 dollars of items from lowes. I just don’t understand why you have a garden shop and don’t open the gate to check out shoppers. In the last two week at the store in Opelika Alabama I have made purchases at the garden shop. One purchase was 10 bags of mulch (really needed 25 bags) since I had to push my cart thru the store to be checked out I only got 10 bags. I took the bags home went to Home Depot to get the rest of my load (was cheaper at HD). Went back to Lowes 3 nor 4 days to purchase some more items from the garden shop. Again the gate was closed and I had to check out up front. Today 3/7/14 I went to Lowes again to get potting soil and other items. As usually the garden shop gate was closed. The word I got was they were short of cashiers. So I had to drag my order up front again. I Notice 3 or 4 people behind the service desk, two registers up front was open and Lumber register was open. A number of lowes employee’s were near the registers just standing around. I think one of the girls on the register was closing or going to lunch and a manager was trying to hurry her up. Now during the Weekend I made purchases at the garden shop and the gate was open. Note the closer of the gate could not have been because it was cold. I wore a short sleeve shirt today. Plus there were 6 other customers in the garden shop the same time I was. I like shopping at Lowes but if these problems can’t be corrected I will take my business to Home Depot.

ON THE EVENING OF FEB. 27 2014 I PICKED UP A BATH VANITY FOR A CUSTOMER FROM THE WILMINGTON DELAWARE STORE. I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE RIPPED THE SHIPPING CRATE OFF AND DID AN INSPECTION OF THE CABINET BUT THE ASSOCIATE THAT HELPED ME WAS SO VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DO ANY DAMAGE IN HANDLING THE OBJECT AND THE PACKAGING WAS NOT EVEN DENTED SO I FIGURED WHAT CAN GO WRONG. AT THE JOB SITE I OPENED UP THE BOX SIDE AND TO MY SURPRISE THE WHOLE SIDE OF THE CABINET WAS BUSTED AND CHIPPED. NOW I HADN’T EVEN TAKEN IT OFF OF THE TRUCK AT THIS POINT. SO I CALLED THE STORE AND GOT SOMEONE IN THE CABINET DEPARTMENT WHO ASSURED ME THEY HAD ONE MORE IN STOCK SO I SAID I’LL BE THERE IN 15 MINUTES AND WOULD THEY PLEASE TO GET IT OFF OF THE TOP SHELF AND OPEN IT UP TO SEE IF IT WAS DAMAGED ALSO, IT TOOK ME AN HOUR TO GET TO THE STORE AND I FIGURED I WOULD WALK IN TO SEE THE CABINET ON THE FLOOR AND ALREADY FOR ME TO EXCHANGE FOR THE BAD ONE. GUESS WHAT ALL 5 MEN THERE WERE STANDING AROUND DOING NOTHING AND THE BOX WAS STILL ON THE TOP SHELF.. I SAID I WAS THERE TO PICK UP THE BATH VANITY AND IT TOOK THEM SO LONG TO GET THIS DOWN I LOST ABOUT AN HOUR OF MY WORKING PAY FOR THE DAY. THIS MAY SOUND PETTY BUT WHEN I TOLD THE ASSOCIATE THE CUSTOMER WAS UPSET ABOUT THE DAMAGED CABINET HE SAID {what do they expect when it has traveled 3 thousand miles to get here from China} NOW I ALMOST BLEW UP IN HIS FACE FOR THAT STUPID REMARK HE MADE BUT I HELD MY ANGER BACK AND FIGURED I WOULD DEAL WITH THIS AT A LATER DATE. NOW HERE IT IS HE PROBABLE SHOULD BE TOLD BY HIS SUPERIOR THE PROPER WAY TO TALK TO CUSTOMERS. I MYSELF WOULD FIRE HIM….BUT ITS NOT UP TO ME. I WOULD GLADLY POINT HIM OUT TO HIS SUPERIOR IF THEY WOULD CONTACT ME VIA E-MAIL TO SET UP A DATE AND TIME FOR ME TO COME INTO THE STORE. BUT BY WHAT I HAVE READ HERE ON THIS PAGE I WON’T HOLD MY BREATH… I KNOW THOUGH WHY SO MANY OF LOWE’S CUSTOMERS ARE SO UP SET WITH THERE SERVICE IT COMES BACK TO THEIR ASSOCIATES ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE CUSTOMERS. THERE IS NONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE..

We experienced a very unfortunate situation yesterday at our home with Michael’s Plumbing Services in Canton, GA, a double oven installation that the installer said WE measured incorrectly for and it did not fit. We never measured for this, Michael’s Plumbing Services and this very installer did the measurements, submitted them to Lowe’s, all we did was pay for it. The installer became defensive, combative, rude,said he had not been PAID to do the work, said they were PLUMBERS, don’t have the tools, have another installation etc – he was perfectly happy to leave my kitchen, diningroom askew and my new uncrated double oven sitting in my livingroom and LEAVE. My husband and I both taking time off work for NOTHING.

Lowe’s was contacted, they immediately rescheduled a new installer they have used for 14 years and we are waiting on them to handle what Michael’s Plumbing Service (?) could not do even after my engineer husband showed him the exact solution.

Katrinia Rief-Derrico listed as CEO of Michael’s Plumbing Services phoned my home at 9:00 a.m. this morning to continue the argument, rudeness and state SHE sent the measurements to Lowe’s and WE ordered an oven that was too big. Then she hung up in my face. I called back to see if we got disconnected or she hung up and she said, “I HUNG UP”. This organization lacks any hint of professionalism, integrity or competence. WE DID NOT DO THE MEASUREMENTS that’s why Lowe’s had Michael’s Plumbing Service come out an measure! The good news is Lowe’s won’t be using them EVER AGAIN and neither will we – read this and see other similar experiences.

Additional Notes
Complaint Category: Bait & switch advertisement

Complaint: Company is a Contract Plumber for ******* Installed Services In Woodstock Georgia. There is an advertised price of $220 to install sinks displayed in the store on ***** lane. Plumbing Contractor came to house to “measure” for the sink then wanted to charge $550 for the same work quoted at $220 in the store.

Initial Business Response
Contact Name and Title: ******* ******** Gen Mgr
Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX
Contact Email: ***********@aol.com
This complaint should be removed from our file. This is a ******* customer not a customer of Michael’s Plumbing Service. ******* advertises Lowe’s pricing – not ours. ******* determines end pricing which may or may not reflect our actual cost. (We have contractors rates with ******* that have nothing to do with direct cost to customers). ******* has many subcontractors and this customer was actually assigned 4-5 different installers including Michael’s Plumbing Service. The other installers refused to accommodate this customer due to difficulty of job and attitude of customer. Due to issues involving customer existing plumbing and customer’s inability to understand the scope of work involved we refused this job from Lowe’s – No work was completed by our company no monies collected. Even customers complaint states this was a ******* job and not a Michael’s Plumbing Job. Please remove from our BBB profile/file.

Please call me at your earliest convenience – my cell is XXX-XXX-XXXX

Final Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
***** position is that the agreement is between the Contractor and the ***** Customer. This Contractor originally agreed to perform the work then reneged. In my opinion this Contractor agreed to perform work at an advertised price posted in the store, then adds additional charges under the guise of “out of scope” which is negotiating in bad faith. The Contractor has similar bait and switch complaints available to view on the internet. Please contact ******* at ******* Store at Woodstock Georgia location XXX-XXX-XXXX He will verify the Contractor Michael’s Plumbing actions. Several other Contractors HAVE since agreed to perform the work. This can be verified by ******* again at XXX-XXX-XXXX

Complaint Resolution: BBB determined the company made a reasonable

I am writing to express my satisfaction with the level of service I have received from one of your retail store managers. Mr. Juan Cintintron, from store #1676 located in Howell, NJ took control of an issue I was having with the installation of a new entry door purchased from his store. He calmly sorted through the issues, involved all of the proper people, and most importantly, maintained communication with me, keeping me apprised of his progress. Mr. Cintintron did an excellent job, and helped to resolve the issues, resulting in the proper installation of the door. mr. cintintron should be commended by Lowes for his excellent customer service skills.

Project # 400597360 On 1/18/2014 I purchased two Champion4 toilets at store #1602. I also paid to have to toilets installed and the previous ones taken. I was pleased that they arrived on 1/21/2014 to install them. The gentleman who installed the toilet said he would have to return later the day to seal it. It was a day of bad weather and later that day he called me and said he would prefer to not come that day because of the weather, I agreed. That evening I noticed there was water on the floor and then discovered that the tank was loose on the front and the back. I also noticed that the base rocked front and back when you sat down. I then looked closer at the other toilet and the base also rocked. They returned the following day,1/22/2014, but it was not the same men who originally installed the toilets. He was unable to completely fix the problems. He told us not to use the toilet in our Master bedroom bathroom until they were able to figure out what was wrong. He also told me that they had had several problems with the Champion toilets. He said the Kohler toilet would have been a better choice. I was then told they would return the following day 1/23/2014 to work on the problems again between 1-3 PM, but they never showed up. We called directly to the store to speak to the install sales to complain and also told them we had decided to have them remove the Champion toilets and install some Kohler toilets we were going purchase. We were told by that person that we would have to pay the installation charge amount again since we were going with a different brand. I was extremely upset. I should not have to pay $238.40 AGAIN to have other toilets installed because the first ones were BOTH BAD. We also scheduled a time for them to return to work/install the new toilets and return the bad ones to Lowe’s on 1/24/2014. They were to arrive between 8 – 10 AM. No one showed up and after calling the installer about this we were told because we had talked to different people and Lowe’s had called them to tell them that we were going to purchase different toilets the appointment on the 24th was cancelled without us being told. My husband used vacation time to be here to make sure the different toilets did not have problems. It is now scheduled to take place on 1/25/2014 in the morning. I am EXTREMELY upset. This is the first time I experienced something like this from Lowe’s. I am seriously considering not doing business with Lowe’s the the future. You can resolves this for me by the replacement toilets being installed for no additional charge. I will return the Champion toilets myself and what it refunded to my Lowe’s account.

PO #306908002 was sold as to be in store 1-20-14 ordered 12-26-14 now the people at the store have decided the door will be here for awhile with no date in sight, after I have been in the store the last 4 days and getting nowhere fast I need answers not an attitude, they think now that the door had a 38 day ship time but of course nobody said anything to me, or I would have ordered a different door. I am installing the door 650 miles from Parker Co so needed everything here, I have time off starting Saturday for helping my disabled mother with a rebuild bathroom, I was told by store managers they would look for a door close to what I am looking for and of course nothing happened, no call no nothing. You guys have nothing down good! I am looking for someone to give me some support to get a door close to what I ordered. Lowes made all the mistakes and I got no information on ship date ever, I had to go in and dig for what was going on. I am waiting for someone to care about customer support and help me out. I will give Lowes credit you are past hard to get some help from. I need answers not nothing, the attitude from the assistant manager is a disgrace to any company, I am hoping for some action. If you can’t help just tell me and I will move on. Gary

I will never shop at Lowes again. I made a purchase that was later cancelled, but the charges were still showing as a pending transaction at my bank. My bank expld that they needed an authorization code to delete the transaction and have the funds put back in my acct. Without the authorization code I would have to wait 3-4 business days for the transaction to expire on its own. I spoke with many people from the Naperville location where the purchased was made, and then was transferred to the online dep. To my surprise no one knew what an authorization code was. I expld over and over its the code that’s given to authorize the transaction . No one was willing to find out how to get this info, nor do I think they care. I had no success, and now must wait3-5 days for the transaction to expire.

To whom it may concern but as I can see there is no concern. I was in The Madison Heights, Virginia store this afternoon. I shop this store everyday for the mutli million dollar company that is family owned and still able to make decisions without corporate being in the way. I had loaded my basket after a hour and half shopping for a list of things we needed to finish a million dollar church. I was lacking thirty 2x4s to finish my shopping. A loader named Willie walked by and ask if I needed any help. I responsed “No you the kid that told me last week that that was not your job”. So no I don’t need your help. As I proceeded to get some straight ones from the back I had stepped up onto a hack of boards to get to the back ones that was straight. Well everyone that goes into Lowes on a regular bases knows they put the cull lumber back up onto the pile and wait on the customer that doesn’t look or know any better. Well by then Willie had went to the front of the store where he usually stands with his hands in his pockets. Well then his load manager and him starting walking to me . John Wright the so called manager said to me ” Sir I am going to ask you to get down from there. I jump down thinking I was going to get some real help but instead I got disrespected. John Wright told me that I didn’t know what a straight board was and then he took one down laid it on the floor and showed me that this is how you check by Flipping it several times. Then said ” I will not be taking down another hack for you to pick through it to find only thirty boards. Well to make this shorter because I am tired of wasting my time . I told him I didn’t want nothing including the two baskets of stuff that he could restock it for me. His mouth never shut up and tomorrow I will be speaking to the store manager. I spend $500.00 a day on the average and over half a million a year with Lowes and to get told after twenty-five years of being a builder that I didn’t know what a straight board is just priceless… I thank you John and Willie for showing me that times are changing its not about the customer anymore its about anybody can get a job at Lowes and I do mean anybody…..

Wow. I wouldn’t have gotten down a new bunk either. Unless what was left truly was cull, which I doubt. The number of people that I see dropping good lumber on the floor when I shop is amazing. People like Steve here don’t seem to comprehend that 2x4s and other lumber come from TREES. They are apt to twist and curl whether you like it or not, unless you buy kiln dried lumber. Take it from me, you won’t buy kiln dried lumber because it will cost too much for your million dollar church…

I will never buy another product from Lowe’s! First we bought a washing Machine that has given us nothing but trouble. Trying to get customer service was impossible and we never had a solution to the original problem. The machine continues to work, but sometimes you have to switch it to a different cycle to get it to work.
In October 2011 we bought a water heater from them. I should have known sooner or later we would have trouble with it. It took forever to get someone in the store to help us and then he acted like we were bothering him. Also was not thrilled with the people who delivered it. Well the water heater stopped working last night and is leaking. Tried calling Lowe’s to get some help and I was given multiple numbers, but no one was able to help me. Finally called the number on the side of the heater, which is an outside service, but somehow had all my info about the water heater I purchased. They are coming out this afternoon and he said the heater was still under warranty. Unfortunately , giving them one more chance I just bought a dryer from them and I am hoping there will be nothing wrong it. The only reason I went there in the first place, is because they are close. I will now travel out of town and hope to find better service and better products.

It’s not Lowe’s fault that the products you purchased are having issues. It’s not Lowes responsibility to service the products unless you bought an extended service policy. Whether you purchased those products at Lowes, Home Depot or Best Buys you would have had the same issues. You don’t make any sense by blaming Lowes for your products issues.

My wife and I brought the top of the line General Electric washer and dryer from lowes store on 8411 South Holland Road, Chicago Illinois. After receiving and installation of the washing machine and dryer from lowes delivery crew my wife tried to wash a few clothes . The machine vibrated and knocked very violently. We called back to the store and they sent the delivery persons back to level the washing machine. After trying to wash a few clothes again with the same results We called a GE certified repair man. He examined the machine and said the inner basket was warped and needed replacing. The repairman stated that the whole machine had to be taken apart to change the parts. We called lowes store and told them exactly what the repairman told us. We spoke to several managers at the store asking for a replacement for the washer. We wanted what we paid for a brand new washer in new working condition and not a repaired lemon that they sold us. Their response was that they didn’t want to take the loss for replacing the machine. They asked me to call GE to see if I could convince them to pay for it. Their next approach was to play cat and mouse with GE customer complaint division. GE did not want to replace the washing machine but only to repair it. After this approach they tried to say its been over 30 days. Within those 30 days we tried to get satisfactory results any delays came from their side during the holidays. I could have went to a used appliance store and got the same results but the difference is that I would not had to pay several thousand dollars to purchase them. Lowes would rather the consumer take the loss for a faulty machine rather then humble themselves and stand by the product they sell.

How about the manufacturer standing by the product they produced. It wasn’t Lowes fault the the washing machine was poorly manufactured. You want Lowes to take responsibility for something they didn’t do. Good ole’ GE. How about holding them to task. They produced a faulty piece of equipment!

If Lowe’s is going to carry different vendors products, models, colors etc. Yes, Lowes’ should back the products they sell. Lowe’s should take care of their CUSTOMER Then deal with GE or who ever the manufacturer might be. Customer service isn’t what it used to be “Pass the buck” to someone else.

Today, 12/27/13, in Front Royal Virginia, I needed help with a complicated matter involving air cleaner filters that I thought could only be resolved if I could find the very helpful department manager who assisted me yesterday. So receipt in hand I tried to find the young woman and failed due to the her work schedule. But on the way out, resigned to my fate with head hanging in defeat when just inside the exit, I met the assistant store manager, (ASM) GARY SAXE. What a stroke of luck!. And what a professional! He was pleasant, kind, and resolved the matter instantly. No third degree, no scowl and snort. I am a lucky man and Lowe’s is lucky to have Gary Saxe. People like him need to be treasured. And rewarded! Good on you too, Lowe’s, for encouraging such treatment of your customers.

Thank You!!! Kitchen Renovation Success Story – Baltimore, Maryland
Catonsville Store – 5900 Baltimore National Pike.

Background: 50 years old house with kitchen that saw only updating in 1980 and all original appliances including wall oven and stove top remained. There was no dishwasher. For 30 years we raised our family and prepared hundreds of meals in this tiny kitchen (slightly less than 12′ x 10′). In the mid 2000s along came HGTV and we learned what we were missing: a) minimal working counter space (1′ x 2′):, b) no dishwasher, c) 20″ overhead cabinets, d) cabinets did not reach ceiling, e) little storage, and f) one light.

I researched kitchens, realized entire kitchen gutting was needed. Went to Lowes and met with Kitchen Designer John. I disclosed I was soliciting designs and bids from three companies so the BEST choice could be made. I also explained I travel extensively and my schedule was tight and fluctuating. The first meeting was May 13, 2013. After a few more visits we stopped the kitchen renovation plans to install central A/C. During the A/C installation process I continued to visit and call the store. Rosetta was very helpful when John was unavailable. The process started again, Lowes was chosen and the planning continued.

Throughout the entire process Catonsivlle Lowes staff team were there. Many thanks are needed as the staff I worked with were experts and experienced and when not available or off, there was ALWAYS A “go to” Lowes team member. Lowes matched all KitchenAid appliance prices from a major appliance store, gave helpful hints and advice. Lowes staff also assisted us in receiving rebates on the various purchases. Once appliances and cabinets ordered we moved on to installation. Lowes provided contact information for Kraftmaid and worked with Shannon there.

In late September we met Bill Peter (Peter) the Kitchen Installer. He did the measurements, and answered many, many technical and process questions. We were able to coordinate the kitchen installation with a flooring renovation and new floors in the kitchen. Peter and John continued to offer much advice. Cassandra coordinated the installation process, along with Robert and Denise. Special thanks to the installation team in working with United Marble to have the counter tables (they are gorgeous) installed the week before Thanksgiving.

Throughout this kitchen renovation that begin in May and ended with a BRAND NEW BEAUTIFUL FUNCTIONAL KITCHEN Thanksgiving 2013 I met and spoke on a first name basis with so many Lowes staff including Customer Service that exchanged or refunded purchases without question. The Catonsville staff including those who manned the paint and hardware counters were “on the money”.

The renovation is just about complete. We are awaiting doors that both Chris and Randy assisted us in finding. Thanks to them both for researching and locating companies that made the doors I described. Today, Cassandra called to let us know the first door had arrived.

I am a Mike Holmes groupie and had researched many of the kitchen installation horror stories. I shared this with the various team members, asked how to avoid or if something would be problematic. NO PROBLEMS, A FEW JITTERS. The best result, folks have asked for designer and installer information. At least one person wants Lowes Catonsivlle to do kitchen. Well worth the 30 year wait!!!

Please make sure Catonsville staff are aware I wrote in. We will provide before and after photos to the store. The Edmonds Clan (All are Delighted)

I have never seen a company that wants 600% effort and only giving 90% in pay.it outrageous! You expert you employees to manage 6 task at one time because you are to f***ing conceded in giving hours to your current employees. Its seems like manager an corporate are always cutting hours for there 30,000 dollar bonus when employees are struggling to make it. Your a misleading company you give higher wages to just f*** with us that you can take the hours away from them it’s disrespectful. On top of all of this I NEVER seen a company that has no absolutely no communication at all. You really don’t care about your employees at all your just worried about the money you fat f***s who deprive your employees who are the actual back bone of you company . If you truly want to be appreciative to your employees give more hours, higher wages, better benefits and start understanding you own policies and start understanding what your causing but being money hungry. I state all this because I’ve never seen a more spurious working enviroment until i walked into a lowes. My anwser you treat your employees like s*** you wipe off the bottom of your shoe an its down right disrespectful to thoughs who create the back of your company. your corporate and mangers actually need to give a d*** about the employees who work hard ,and just some pen or a hat. Show them you care f*** your company makes enough to give back into the,employees pocket besides just 60 dollars that an insult to them. I hope those in the corporate offices sees this because i feel that you dont deserve the money your making sitting where your at.

I just read the article about the employee in one of your Kentucky stores that was fired. This woman was an employee for eighteen years with your company. She ran after a shoplifter and challenging him which was against company policy. It is my belief that firing is a very severe punishment. What ever happened counseling or reprimanding? I ‘am a loyal Lowes customer and was shocked at the actions of one of my favorite companies. Who ever made this decision should be ashamed of them self. You don’t always have to go for the maximum punishment.

Was remodeling my home….. installed new wood flooring and underlayment (insulation) on the floor…. had 1 roll of underlayment left over but the Lowes Store in Concord, CA off Industrial Blvd refused to allow me to return it for credit.

He stated that because it was over 3 months he could not take it back. According to customer service…. it was up to the manager.

It is unfortunate…. I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen and need new counters, dishwasher/appliances, facet, shut-off valves, and other things…. I told the manager I just wanted store credit to apply to my kitchen remodeling job but he said no.

Fine, I then went to Home Depot that was more than happy to spend my $2,000 to $2,500.00 there instead of Lowes….. I am not sure what kind of people you hire or the logic behind their customer service…. but it is pretty sad.

The wife could not believe it either, after buying wood flooring from Lowe’s and other things…. that they were willing to lose a customer over $30.00 (the cost to the underlayment I wanted to return).

Now I understand why you store is so empty when I have gone to it in the past…… This was just a slap in the face to a long time customer….. oops, correction, a FORMER customer…….

Good luck with your sales….. I will most certainly pass this along to my construction friends and others…..

Woke up this morning to the news of the firing of one of you employees of 18 years for doing the RIGHT & MORAL thing regarding a scumbag shoplifter. Way to go by encouraging more scumbags of this world by embolden them to commit more crimes because your employees will be afraid to act in your companies defense. I have been a credit card customer of your store for about 4 years now, unless you do the right and moral thing and apologize and rehire this women of character, our relationship is over and I will make it a point to drive the extra distance to Home Depot. I know my single account is nothing to you monetarily, but I cannot in good conscience spend my hard earned money with a company that is afraid to do the right thing. You as a company or the specific individuals that have done this to that dedicated company woman disgust me and are what is wrong with America today. Rehire and Apologize, or it is good riddance for good.

Major Little,
My late father was a retired 45 year USAF veteran. We made many sacrifices including 70 moves during his service. I no longer shop at Lowe’s nor do the other military vets who live in this retirement village. English aisle titles with spanish sub-titles and public address announcements in English followed by spanish are offensive. I have flown a Mustang, worked on an MYSElf trading desk, hired men in a hard hat construction site an taught learning disabled children, then took care of my parents for the last 20 years ofttheir lives. My father was highly decorated. We were in DC at WWII’s end. He was called back from retirement 3 times for specific missions and his last visitor was a military officer. I’ve lived in border states and seen the economic and social damage to America by illegal aliens who do not contribute to the system, send money orders of unfazed cash across the borders, have annual anchor babies, drive unlicensed and uninspired, literally bankrupting medical facilities and bring large scale shipments of drugs unto this country, formerly with legal system help in California
I have also seen Barney Frank\HUD neighborhoods being purposefully turned into foreign national breeding slums by federally-directed agencies.
Because of bringing several agencies to arrest and imprison those connected with felonious and treasonous activities I am in a protected location which is relatively near my only son who is in a Wounded Warrior facility after 5 years of service on 3 continents.Thank you for your service and for continuing to ffight. I am making a complaint to Lowes. Their entire store is full of short Chinese merchandise . My father died broken-hearted and I refuse to allow the United States to lose our Constitutional rights and the freedoms for which you fought. Thank you.

Lowes should be beyond ashamed of yourself for even criticizing an employee who went after that shoplifter. My son just purchased a dryer from Lowes this past weekend. Today I told him that I will buy him one myself at Home depot – and a new washer if he does. When I see the president of Lowes and that PR lady who issued that awful “statement” at this woman’s house appologizing for what his company did – I will consider returning to Lowes. Shame on you all.

I would also like to voice my distress at firing an employee who had the guts to take on a shoplifter and take back items that were stolen from that Kentucky store. Loyalty like that is priceless. You should have more employees who care about the companies they work for instead of just pulling a paycheck.

I have always liked Lowes. If you want me to stay as a customer I would like to see this woman reinstated in her old job. Then promote her to manager. You will probably see your sales go up.

*I have been a Lowes customer for many years. Just watched the story about an eighteen year employee who was fired for trying to stop a shop lifter. Everyone knows that shop lifting is costing businesses millions of dollars every year. That cost is passed on to the consumers. This woman should have been given a medal and a raise, not fire! If this is your store policy, it’s just plain wrong. Starting today, I will no longer spend my hard earned dollars at Lowes.

I buy at the Lowe’s in Danvers, Mass. on Andover St. because I do not like Home Depot up the street. I will never know why you would fire somebody for caring about the theft of a tool. I believe that is how you make your money. For someone to care about the store and Company you should be proud to have someone like that. If a customer drops on the floor is your policy walk away and wait for an Ambulance. Shame on you’ After this story Home Depot may start looking pretty good.

I don’t blame that woman for getting the shoplifter caught. Why don’t these major stores have more security? I work at a Wal-Mart and we go beyond our duty to try and stop the shoplifters. We are also told not to run after them for our safety and customer safety. Wal-Mart don’t have enough security people. We all have to pay for what these shoplifters takes. Through higher prices, pay raises, bonus etc. That is the thank this lady gets for getting the shoplifter caught. I am going to blast this all over facebook. I think the companies are scared of being sued by the shoplifter. I bet they will let him go. He is probably done out of jail. ($600) in SC is only a $1000 bail and the bondsmen is 10% which is $100 and they sometimes takes payments. This is a joke.

My father, an 88 yr old World War II veteran, entered the Goose Creek, SC, Lowes’ and made a $48.57 purchase today, October 2nd, around 10:00 am. Upon checking out, he showed the Customer Service clerk at the register the laminated copy of his WWII discharge paper that he carries in his wallet, and asked for a military discount. She told him she needed to see his military ID. My father told her that WWII veterans were not issued a military ID, and asked to speak to the manager. The manager showed up and told him the same thing. My father stated he felt very discriminated against as he served in active combat, placing his life on the line for this country as any other young military man doing today. The manager agreed to give him the discount this time ONLY, but in the future he would have to have a military ID. This is showing extreme discrimination and unappreciation towards our WWII veterans. I sincerely hope this situation gets corrected in all Lowe’s stores, and our WWII veterans start receiving the recognition and respect due them.

This is in reference to Lowes on Skibo Road, Fayetteville, NC. They have the rudest and unprofessional employees that I have ever dealt with in my entire life and I am 68 years old. I had a Troybilt weed eater that was less than 90 days old. The store manager instructed me to bring it back, it would not work and they would credit the account. I went home immediately and got the weed eater and the store manager Rich had just left for the day. I told them exactly what the manager told me. Note, I am well known to this manager Rich and spend thousands of dollars in this store annually. They treated me like I was first lying, that I was trying to steal the weed eat by getting another one or credit, they didn’t believe anything Rich the store manager told me. They have one blonde in there Kristina that has no management experience and will be a liability to this Lowes. Finally after embarrassing me in front of several other customers, she credited my account. I assured then I would pay my entire accounts off which I had two accounts and would not go back in another Lowes. On Saturday, Sept 28, 2013, my statement came on one account, I made a check out for $1696.00 took it to the store with my statement and again received a hassle from an employee. Don’t believe anything or anyone from the executive office if they call you. I had a Kay from the Executive Office call me and told me she would call me back on Monday, I didn’t hear anything until nearly 2 weeks later. I hung up on her.

I signed with Lowes on March 1, 2013 to have my kitchen remolded. I was told it would take about 6 to 8 weeks to complete. On July 1st, they removed all my OLD CABINETS , REFRIGERATOR, SINK and STOVE. I have NOTHIN in the kitchen,so I cannot cook, eat or keep anything cold. The NEW cabinets (33 of them) were delivered on JUNE 10th, & I was advised someone would be here within 2 days to removed the boxes & check the cabinets to make sure they were are all OK. So far,today, July 15h, no one has come. I am a prisoner in my own condo, living a nightmere. Lowes Mgr calls & everyday says someone will be here tomorrow, WELL no one comes and no one calls and I sit here ALL day waiting. I have had so many calls like that and ALL are NO SHOWS. I am extremely disappointed in Lowes and their customer relations. People here,living in the building, cannot believe what Lowes is doing to me.here. I just wish they would hire good efficient contractors that would do one job at a time & complete the work as promised.
I AM A VERY DISSATISFIED & STRESS OUT CUSTOMER, KNOWING THAT LOWES DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMER. I NEED SOMEONE TO COME HERE AND SEE THIS HORRIBLE MESS I AM LIVING WITH. REMEMBER, IT IS NOW JULY 15th, AND NO HOW IS THIS GOING TO BE DONE SOON.

I am an employee at Lowe’s of gulf gate mall Houston, tx 77087. On 7-8-2013 my vehical was broken into and items were stolen. I am not blaming Lowe’s or the officers that patrol the area,but would just like to know what Lowe’s is going to do about this problem. During my year and a half working there has been 4-6 employee vrhicals that have been broken into.not to mention the numerous of customer vehicals that have been vandalized. It’s causing a severe inconvenience on both customers and employees, and think there should be some sort of other security than the patrolling officers. There are too many stores and cars for two or less officers too watch them all. I’m my opinion Lowe’s should invest in late night security in not all day for high theft level stores. I would really appreciate a response back.

Clean-up your act, hiring principals, and get some knowledgeable employees!!!! Like myself!!! ask the CEO, I sent him an email also. Try this out. take some of those perspective employees out to the sales floor, and randomly pick a product, ask the prospect, what, how and why are certain products used, applications, and how they would be able to recommend a suitable substitute !! or for that matter where things are, without just the old reliable, “Isle 3”, and then walk away!!

Two weeks ago i purchased $2700 worth of flooring and installation services from Lowe’s, i was told that i would hear from installation to schedule it no later than 3 days from the time of purchase, well its two weeks later and have not heard not one thing from Lowe’s. I work two weeks out of town at a time and home for a week, I have called numerous times to the Shreveport, La. location and a careless employee will always forward me to a line that will just ring and ring and ring, so i continuously call back and same thing everytime, I work 500 miles away from home and just want answers, my wife called the other day to ask and they told her again that the problem will be taken care of and that she will hear something the next day to schedule installation. Once again, back at square one and still havent heard anything and have called today several times to just be forwarded to a ringing line that noone will answer, on the 4th attempt got ahold of an employee and asked to speak to a manager and was put on hold exactly 15 mins and still nothing, so hung up and decided to take the next step and write this, hoping and praying that someone will help me, if anything refund me my $2700 considering it has been paid in full TWO WEEKS ago. Its very frustrating and misleading paying an extreme amount of money for a working man, and be so far from home and helpless feeling. Just want answers and HELP??? Is that too much to ask for?? I feel used and taken advantage of!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

As I read many of the complaints concerning Lowe’s Home Improvement, I realized that my situation is no different. The unprofessionalism of store managers, the lack of concern by customer care representatives and the lack of help overall seems to be a common tread. I too purchased a $2500 zero turn Husqvarna mower. After 10 month, the deck spindle brokes but I wasn’t concerned because 1) it was still under factory warranty and 2) I purchased the extra warranty. I called the number on the contract and they stated that the repair company would call me back.
1. The repair company calls and says that it will be 3 weeks before they can pick up the mower also states that I will have to pay for repairs.
2. Store manager said that he would take care of it but, never called me back
3. Other Store manager says to just grease the joints and everything should work
4. Two weeks later the repair company shows up to pick up the mower
5. Lowe’s Customer care said that they would follow up and call me back
6. Repair company calls to give me the price of the repair and asked was I going to pay it
7. I never received a call from Lowe’s customer care so I called and they said that they had no record of me calling
8. They took my information again and said that they will handle everything; that the repair company should not charge me
9. Call to check status again and Lowe’s customer care manager said that they would take care of the charges and not to worry about it but the parts are on back order
10. Called the repair shop back to authorize the repair
11. Week and half go by and repair shops says nuts, bolt and washers are on back order so they can’t fix the mower
12. Call Lowes customer care again, because Lowes guarantee says that they will pay for someone to cut your lawn if your mower is not fixed in 14 days. They had no knowledge of this. I emailed the guarantee to the manger and he stated that I was correct and it would be taken care of.
13. Another week passes so I called Lowe’s customer care again and they said that they was not going to take care of the charges and basically it was my fault for waiting to authorize the repairs. Also that I was lying because no manger every told me that they would take of this issue or pay for the repairs.
14. It’s been over a month and I still don’t have a mower and am not sure when I will get it back
Obviously I left out a lot of the details not to bore you but you get the point. I just brought a $2300 refrigerator from Home Depot and my experience was so much better.

Lowe’s has proven to me that it does not care about me as a customer and my dollars are not appreciated. The money that Lowes has gotten from me and my businesses over the years will not hurt its bottom line but sooner or later all the little business and little dollars will add up and Lowes will wish that it treated its customers with a little more respect.

I would like to have a problem solved. First of all at lowes. My complaint is with a product yOu carry named whirlpool. I bought a stove. Refrig and oven to match at one time. My refrigerator stopped working. I lost all my food. It just turned two years old but really was not inuse for the full two years . Called certified whirlpool repairman who informed me that the compressor needed replaced and woukd cost $500.00 to repair. I called whirlpool and they said the compressor warranty ran out the month I called and could not do anything but offer me an extended warranty but would not cover pre_existing problems. I hope you will make good on this because I am desperate and feel betrayed by thinking this was a good namebrand fridge. I even ask them to at least send new compressor and I would pay for the repairs. Lowes looks bad and vets a bad arap because vendors are selling lemons a.d not standind behind their product. A refigsdator is a major appliance it should last lo.gsr than 2 years. Please reply I would be truly greatful.

Purchased new appliances for my kitchen on April 20th. Was told everything was in except my stove. Did not need them until the beginning of May so not a problem. Called May 2nd and was told the only item in was my stove.Needed all appliances because I was having a kitchen installed. Stove came on Friday and I was promised delivery on Saturday of my dishwasher microwave and refrigerator. I was upset because it was my granddaughters prom In PA but I knew I had to miss it. Delivery was set up between two and four. At five twenty I called and was told I was next. At eight PM I called and was told that the order was cancelled . Called the store Monday morning and spoke to O G and he said appliances were not there. Went to store Monday afternoon and they were in the warehouse. What is going on had to get managers involved and no one knows what is happening and I missed a very important day with my grandchild ..next week my tenants refrigerator broke and I ordered her a new one I figured what was the odds it would happen again, and it did. Promised delivery on Tuesday after ordering it on Sunday, and it did not come. I have always ordered appliances from you but know I have to think twice. I called at least four times to speak to a manager named Paul and he was never available. My bill reached me before the appliances . Terrible way to treat people.

I have a Delaware State “United States Veteran” ID card issued by the State of Delaware. I had to present a Discharge Certificate to get it. I also have a certificate of service of the Army of the United States. I served 6 mos. active service in the US Army & took Basic training & Schooling & spent 6 years in The Delaware National Guard. I live near the Camden Delaware Lowes, & do business with them. Sometimes they will give me the discount & sometimes they won’t. I would like you to advise me if they should or should not give me the discount. Please send me the guidelines in giving Veterans your discount.

I Eddie Brown bought one of your elite husqvarna mowers last summer and this summer just as I was mowing the yard for the first time the pulley rope broke. being I bought this more expensive mower for the reason of having the highest warranty I was not going to fix even the simplest things and void and further warranty. however a 30minute fix has turned now into a careless 6 weeks. I say careless fore that is the attitude I get when I call over and over then finally run up to the store to check on my mower. after many days of rude discurtious actions over the phone and going up to the store 5 weeks after the mower was taken in. I find it hasnt even been started on as of yet. meanwhile I am paying $50 a shot to have my yard maintained because I do not have the luxury of the mower I bought! seems I would have been better off paying even higher rate at a local mower shop because they want to keep me happy and me coming back which obviously Lowes pants are to big to give a dang anymore! I have been promised 3 times by two managers that they would call and find out the issue and call me. It has been a week since the last promise and no such call has been made. in fact I called yet again this morning and was put off yet again by one of the same two managers whom claims to know nothing, yet I have his name as the original one I spoke to. and said name is Al, the other manager Mark too has neglected to follow through siting the excuse the lawnmower shop is closed. however on anger I drove by said shop and they were not in fact closed but thriving with awating a new consumer. I went into the shop and was told NO ONE had inquired about my mower as of yet. They told me that they were in fact awaiting some information from Lowes store to proceed on the fixing and that their calls to had not been answered or returned. I will say this much that I shall NEVER buy a single thing from lowes under warranty again if this is the way I am treated after spending my hard earned money! furthermore I have half a mind to let the public know via any means necc to include in your corner investigations played daily on local news so that others are fore warned of the careless actions of the local manager staff at lowes on:

Being I am a medically retired US ARMY VET, and local Pediatric Occupational Therapist working in pediatric
field it may hold a little weight in character reference. I hate to be this way and make threats but mind you they are not idle
and I am not just blowing smoke. i hate even more to be disrespected than i do to be a bother and thorn in the side of middle America! the
problem is this no one gives a damn about their jobs, customers, or business anymore they take advantage of all that cross them with
regardless of the outcome. I paid over $400 for a mower that lasted 1/2 a season, I have paid half that much to a landscape gentleman
because no one cares to stand up the the purchased warranty. I am treated as tho i just better be damn glad its being fixed no matter how long it takes
and disregarded without a second thought. I am beyond fedup here. I lay the ball in your court as to where I proceed in this wretched ordeal.

God Bless with warm regards,

I have been out of work since 01/12/2013, from BJ’s Wholesale Club for calling out sick, one day. I have applied for several jobs, eleven of them for many types of jobs for Lowes. These jobs were only based at two Lowes, one in Bowie, Maryland. The other ten in Clinton, Maryland. I have decline letters for all eleven. I would like to know the reason. I actually believe that it’s age discrimmination and/ non-military experience discrimmination. I am 54 years old.

I can promise u that they have a problem hiring people. They do discrimination on age but they will never let you know it. I know I am 35 and I have applied for over 100 jobs and been turned down for over 78 of them. All the jobs I qualified for but still turned down. I think they are also discriminating against me because of my age and location. I was told many times that they like hiring younger employees. At this time I have a discrimination charge filed against them and I make a suggestion that you do the same or they will do it to the next people down the line. So-one has to teach these big businesses that they can not do what they want and get away with it.

i had a bad experiance at your woonsocket, ri store yesterday. the store is moving , and i went in to look for a new refridgerator. the employee was very rude, and unknowledgeable. i asked about an afternoon delivery for monday. he could not tell me if it was poosible to have it delivered in the afternoon or not. he did not know what time the store deliver until. i then said ” i guess you are going to lose a customer.” his reply was” that’s ok there will someone else behind you.” i looked for the manager, but they said he was at the new store. i can’t believe that lowe’s policy is to let people walk out the door. little did he know, i also wanted a new stove, washer, and dryer.

I went to Lowes today in Houston Tx. This was the Meyerland store . I went to look for some patio furniture when I was stopped by an elderly man about in his 80’s and if I worked there I said no but let me see if I can get some one to help you. There was an employee there by the name of Juan in the tile department who was a very rude person. I stood next to him for 5 minutes and not once did he make eye contact with me. I asked to speak to his manage and a guy by the name of Nate came by and spoke to me. He his self was a rude person. I told him there service is awful and Juan is a reflection of him meaning he must be the same way. Needless to say I left there and went to HOME DEPOT and spent the 840.00 over their . Lowes will never get my business again. I have seen companies go down due to bad service. What makes Lowes any difference. At HOME DEPOT. The greeted me and asked if I needed help and said thank you for coming to Home Depot. Always acknowledge your customers by making eye contact. Juan and Nate are awful.

I live in sparks/Spanish Springs Nevada. Zip 89441. I feel it would be great 2 have a Lowe’s in this area but understand it’s not a largely populated area…however, I’ve been thinking about running a… let’s call it a MINNY LOWE’S for commonly needed smaller items. I’ve been in management for over 30 year’s and it would be a privilege to assist and develop this adventure for a smaller community. Looking forward to hearing from you and your team soon.

If i am wrong say so. Are you a woman? If so that is the problem. I have seen many women get turned down for jobs even know they had more experience then the men applying for the jobs. Lowe’s discriminate against women more then they let on that they do. If you do not know some-one most of the time its hard to get any job with them even if you are getting a job for the first time or trying to get your job back or just trying to step up in the company. If i was you if it is still going on I would file a discrimination charge against them. Trust me your’s will make a differences because they are have more and more filed against them everyday.

Just want you to know how disappointed I am with your store. I went to the West St. Paul, MN store today and asked about two products I’ve been deluged with on TV commercials (the parallel jaw pliers set and the double-drive ratchet). The employee I asked told me that neither one was available because these are new items and they are being “tested”, and that they may never be availble again. It wasn’t fair to me to vent on him, but it’s all I had at the time. This is a terrible practice for your store to engage in. The commercials are still running on TV (I bet I see some tonight) but yet none of the product is available. This has happened to me several times in the past, and I told myself then that I wouldn’t shop at Lowes anymore but I really wanted these products. When Lowes decided to open stores in MN, I was truely exicted about Lowes finally coming up north. What a disappointment! Maybe your corporate level executives need to spend some time in your stores so they can hear what customers and your own employees say about your company. It’s really too bad that you’ve lost me, I am a good consumer and I also talk to people a lot about my experiences.

Brent Briggs Home Improvements December 16, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I normally do not make purchases from either H.D. or Lowes, as part of my home improvements business. Products are usually of lower quality, staff are usually dimwits, and it’s very difficult to find what you need quickly. Worse, I could give a store thousands of dollars of business per month, and get no more discount than the customer who buys that stupid inflatable holiday crap taking up space in the store. I stick with pro suppliers.
However, I needed a toilet seat for a customer, last minute, and ran over to the Quakertown, PA Lowe’s store. When I got back to the job, I found I’d grabbed a round seat, when what I thought I was getting was an elongated seat. It has been stocked incorrectly.
I drove back to the store and called Customer Services enroute. The gal answered and I told her I’d gotten the wrong product due to a stocking error, and needed her to have someone bring the right one to the returns counter. I sat on hold forever. I hung up and called again.
I asked her; rather than leave me on hold, take down the info and get someone to take the correct product to the returns desk. She then put me on hold again. I called back and she proceeded to fill me in on how busy she was and then said she was the only one in the department and that a customer had come to the counter and put me on hold. I called back and said that, while I’m on the phone with her, I’m the first customer in line and she should tell the other customer she’ll be right with them. She put me on hold agiain. I called back and askef for the manager. Several minutes on hold, and I got Scott, the assistant manager.
Scott was very professional, courteous and he affirmed that the customer services person had not handled things properly. Scott took my info and said the toilet seat would be at the returns counter when I arrived. It was, and I was out of there quickly. Not quickly enough, though, for the customer services gal that had treated me badly shot me some nasty looks.
By the way…she lied to me. There were three customer services people behind the counter and another was coming and going as she was helping both the customers and the employees.
Lowe’s needs more Scotts to rescue bad customer experiences. Further, customer services people need to learn to drop their crappy attitude and focus on helping the customer, and not treat a dissatisfied, or troubled customer, as an irritant.
Afterward, I went on the survey site to register my feedback and it was a stupid, generic survey that did not mean diddly squat to me, the customer. It kept asking about “MyLowes” something or other. Who gives a crap about that stupid junk?? It angers me that cashiers are always humping their store’s credit cards at you. Screw that, just render good service and I will return. Stop nagging me about your dumb credit card!

Hi, just a quick note I’d like to make ,I moved to the Greensboro area from Ct. this year, I’ve been going to lowe’s because it’s closer than the depot. I’ve found at the Elmsley Lowes the people to be very helpful. Today i went to the paint dept. to try and match a stain color. There was a young woman ,first name Katie I believe ,that spent all her efforts to assist me ( I’m 66 years old and I spend a lot of time thru the years in lumber yards ) and have never had anyone help me as much as she did. She actually tested 5 different stains till we got a perfect match. With people like this Lowe”s will alway’s be #1 with me.
Thanks for reading this ,have a good day !

I have been speaking to the people at Lowe’s in Suwanee for several months now, trying to get them to reconsider carrying Jungle Growth soil products in the Garden Center. I called the corporate headquarters a few weeks ago, explained that I would like Lowe’s to reconsider carrying the Jungle Growth products. I was assured that someone would respond by email or phone, and not surprisingly, no one has.

So, one last effort: would you please reconsider carrying the Jungle Growth soil products, particularly at the Suwanee Georgia location. Jungle Growth is a superior product, made here in Georgia. I prefer to do business with businesses who support other Georgia business owners. The soil that Lowe’s substituted (as a replacement) is inferior and I will not use it. I have contacted Home Depot in Atlanta, today, to see if they will pick up the line of soil products from Jungle Growth, since it’s been nearly impossible to penetrate the fortress at Lowe’s. If Home Depot decides to start carrying the Jungle Growth product line, I will obviously take all my business over to Home Depot. Lowe’s has had my business since the spring of 2001 (I’ve operated two different businesses in that period of time, and I’ve always stuck with Lowe’s) – but I will leave to follow the products that are important to me.

Jungle Growth is made in Statham, Georgia. It should be a no-brainer that you carry a product in the Garden Center that is made right here in Georgia – especially because it is a quality product.
