🠈  Lowe's  🠊

Lowe's is a home improvement store out of North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Lowe's traces its corporate history to 1946 when Carl Buchann purchased the Lowe's hardware store from his brother-in-law James Lowe.

Carl Buchan foresaw the post-war building boom and envisioned a home improvement store that would be much more than the run of the mill hardware store.

Lowe's went public in 1961 shortly after Carl Buchan died of a heart attack at age 44 in 1960. Lowe's trades on the NYSE with the symbol LOW. Lowe's current operates over 1750 stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Lowe's partnered with Woolworths Limited to expand into Australia with the brand Masters Home Improvement.

The Yahoo Profile for Lowe's says the store has 167,000 employees. You can learn more about working with Lowe's at careers.lowes.com.
