Episode Description:
By almost any measure, Lowe's and The Home Depot are the 2 largest hardware stores in the United States. In 1989, The Home Depot passed Lowe's to take that #1 spot and that's how things remain today.

This video focuses more on Lowe's, specifically how they've grown, how they've competed with The Home Depot over the years, and their potential to take back that #1 spot.

Doubt Lil boy announcer ever held a wrench or hammer. Duh economics chat too. Silly boy.

I am a DM at a lowes store. I have an MBA lol I know. But I believe the company needs restructuring in operations and top management so become the # one store.I hope Marvin make the right decisions.

Lowes has much better quality, selection, and prices on nuts and bolts, fasteners in general. Home Depot has much better coffee. I am surprised you didn't mention that. Coffee is important too! Also, the hired help, women, are much better looking at my local Home Depot as compared to Lowe's.

Lowes is the worst. I am a General Contractor, I will not shop there unless absolutely needed. there lack of knowledge , putting returned items back on shelf, the Valspar paint is less than adequate, the lumber is garbage and no Fir.  You should be able to go in there store and  have a  little help, but no the employees no nothing more than the price tags. I imagine there are a few good managers and employees, but that is far a few in between, I shop at Home Depot now.. and real lumber yard for lumber that is usable
Elvin Berndt
I think Lowes is cleaner and better displayed, has more friendly employees. It also gives a 10% discount too Veterans😃
Russell A. Pisciotta
The basic problem with both and all retail stores is that they just want as much money as they can get, and don't want to provide any service to get it. It's not just Lowes and HD, it's everyone. Great world we created isn't it. Everyone chasing dollars around all day.
Russell A. Pisciotta
I make and sell furniture. I go to Lowes mostly because I can see better in their store. HD is always so dark. I like HD's commitment to pro's in the parking lot, Lowes has no such place for us to park and mostly they go about picking orders instead of taking care of the stacks of wood or helping customers. All in all, I find the wood is in better condition at Lowes and is usually cheaper.
Karl Van Lith
A little late for a response, there is literally 1 factor that I base my shopping on, between these two stores. As a Veteran... Lowe’s caters to me 200x more seamlessly.. therefore, I shop Lowe’s for everything. With an occasional stop into Home Depot..
Ron Zoni
Over the last 2 years I've had Home Depot contractors for sliding patio doors (2) and a new AC system and they both royally sucked big time.
Joe Nobles
I used both until I got a email today employees with 15 years and some with 18 years got laid off from store closers no money for food or house payment and some with kids I called Lowe's today and closed my account and yes I've been with them for over 28years and retired military
Jonathan Pope
Lowes offers 10% off military which is awesome. Home Depot and lowes have horrible online services and need to adopt an amazon style for online purchases.

HD has an image of being a pro store but its mostly BS. One example. I own a painting company. We use a ton of paint thinner. Lowes sells it by both 5g and 1 gallon. Home Depot. Only sells little 1 gallon units. I do prefer the tool section at hd.
zzgeoergez Dane
Home depot is too understaffed for my requirements.
zzgeoergez Dane
Lowes pro desk pretty good. Home depot pro desk sucks
John Kendall
As a DIY'er, and a Veteran, I will choose Lowe's every time because I get a discount there. Only if Home depot has the same item for significantly less than my discount, or has it and Lowe's doesn't, will I shop at Home Depot.
Benjamin Rush
Home Depo gives you the Veterans Discount with your Veteran Status ID. Lowes wants all your personal information ! Do not go to Lowes.
Jim Ham
I usually prefer Lowes, but the truth is they are both good stores.
Wesley Stoodley
Totally agree with you I’m a contractor and like HomeDepot better, but I will go to Lowe’s if it’s closer. Home Depot also has a bigger tool selection
TheArnotts
There’s only a Lowe’s in my town so Lowe’s owns me.
nbookie
I know NO ONE who buys lumber at lowes. That makes the point for the comment of lows supporting the consumer more than the pro or even ambitious DIY person. Most lowes stores you cant even tell there is a contractor side. When you do go looking for it their prices are high, support is low and product on hand cant keep up. Lowes is the hardware side of Sam's club.
