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 have called all customer service numbers that I find and never get the chance to speak to a live person. I need an owner manual for the TaskForce Electric Mower Model 25143 Item 0195614 Date 0111. I can not find it on your site and I can not tie up my phone waiting for no one to answer.

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.
