Lowe’s has a vision statement: “We will provide customer-valued solutions with the best prices, products and services to make Lowe’s the first choice for home improvement.” Holding true to their founders’ vision over 60 years ago, the Lowe’s shopping experience seeks to empower the consumer to do home projects his or herself. By providing thousands of in-stock items in their stores, along with helpful associates, the Lowe’s customer can find the supplies and expertise to handle myriad home and yard repairs and improvements.
Lowe’s stores are organized by project: plumbing supplies and fixtures are all together; paint and all its necessary supplies are grouped in aisles surrounding the paint mixing area; building supplies such as wood, insulation, and drywall are together near the contractor entrance and checkout lanes. By organizing their stores into categories, Lowe’s seeks to narrow the customer’s focus into well-marked aisles providing them exactly what they need for a project.
Lowe’s carries reputable brands in all categories. The tool section offers Kobalt, DeWalt, Bosch, Black & Decker, and other well-respected manufacturers at competitive prices, with frequent sales and discounts. From the smallest drill bit to a 60-gallon air compressor, Lowe’s seeks to be the one-stop tool supplier for the do-it-yourself consumer and the building professional alike.
