The popular home improvement store Lowes is generally open in most locations Monday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The store is open on Sundays, depending on the locale, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. or from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Lowes sells outdoor tools and equipment, grills, lights, fans, bath fixtures, windows, doors and major brand appliances.
Lowes, which is a major home improvement retailer, began as a small hardware store in 1946. Expecting a post-war building boom, Carl Buchan bought the North Wilkesboro Hardware Company from his partner and brother-in-law at the time.
Lowes serves the hardware needs of customers in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Major competitors include Home Depot, Sears, Roebuck and Company and Menard.
