How big it is

Traded on the New York stock exchange since 1961, Lowe’s (LOW) has been a full home improvement business with inspiration and encouragement for consumers from a small hardware store wherever they are trading. If you shop online, by phone, or if Lowe’s meets you in your place of business or home, Lowe’s will support you.

The history of the brand

In North Carolina, Lowe’s story started. A chain of hardware stores was opened by H. Carl Buchan, co-owner of North Wilkesboro Hardware Company. At that time, Lowe’s was a traditional small city hardware store selling everything, including washing tubs, boots, and horse collars. In December 2007, Lowe’s first shops in Canada opened, and in February 2010, the company opened its first shop in Mexico.

Lowe’s stores carry 40,000 items, and Special Order proposes hundreds of thousands more – all consumers need to build, preserve, upgrade and enjoy their homes. Although times have changed since Lowe’s opening in 1946, the principles of Lowe’s have not changed – the company remains committed to delivering quality home-built goods at regular low prices and providing outstanding customer service.
