    1. The same thing happened to me last year. I was put on final notice for a forklift violation and then harassed until they found a reason to fire me. They even tried to make up things I didn't even do a few months before I was terminated. I never called in and was always on time. I bent over backwards many times for the company and even threw a vest over my workout clothes when I was asked if I wanted to work as I was in the break room checking my schedule. So instead of going to the gym after checking my schedule I worked for 6 hrs because the flooring associate called in. They also harass employees that are hourly and have been with the company a while so they can get someone else in there spot making less money. A zone manager where I was employed at the Decatur,Alabama store named Brian Walker who had harassed female associates there was caught by another employee last year placing poison in certain areas of the store to kill birds that were flying in from the garden center. Everyone knows about this, but yet nothing was done about it because he's buddy buddy with the store manager John Barksdale. That same zone manager also has a group of associates that he parties with at his house. Everyone knows about that too,but yet he's still employed there. The store manager John goes to the Station Bar and Grill in Madison, Alabama and gets drunk with certain associates and comes to work everyday with his face bloodshot red. All this can be proven and everyone knows about these things and there still employed there. Lowe's treats there employees horrible, it's a terrible place to work and something like this should be done about things like this that go on in there stores. I have worked non stop since I was 15 yrs old. I'm a very hard worker, never called in and have never gotten fired from a job up until last year. At 34 yrs old I am still unemployed and looking for work. I worked for Lowe's twelve years and was treated like total garbage the last few years I was there.

    2. i was let go from a seasonal job with them in texas after i was told that i was perm. they found out that they couldnt"afford" to pay us and made up that i was never at work i missed one week because i was in the hospital with my baby brother who was shot in the head and passed away but came right back to work after the released his body from the hospital they dont seem like they care about our personal life like we dont have a life out side of lowes i was the best in the store and there was alot of people who are turning that store into trash! good luck with keeping your store in killeen texas its going to fall apart!

    3. I'm very sorry to hear about your baby brother and I can honestly say that in my 19 yrs of having a job I was never harassed or treated as badly as I was at the Decatur, Alabama store the last few years I was there. All Lowe's stores should be boycotted.

      Delete
    4. They harass, bully and run off most of the employees that work hard and then treat the ones who don't work at all like gold. That figures because most of the ones that slack off are the same employees brown nosing the store managers. Also, most of the specialists get away with murder as long as there making there sells.

      Delete
    5. the reason they like letting people go who have been there a long time is so the store manager gets a bigger annual bonus. That's the same reason why when you go into most Lowe's stores they are so short handed and understaffed. It means a bigger bonus for the store manager. If Lowe's could have there way everyone in there stores would be making 7 dollars per hour except the store manager. Things like this is why more and more people are leaving Lowe's and going to Home Depot, and this is also a big reason why Home Depot's number 1 and Lowe's is number 2. I hope all Lowe's stores go out of business one day and all the greedy high dollar making store managers all loose there jobs.

  3. To the guy who was just let go. Here is a great example where your performance is "unexceptable." First, the word is unacceptable. Second, the use of punctuation would help greatly towards your complaint. Third, "i" as a pronoun is always capitalized.

    Is it any wonder you were let go when you cannot even write a simple, clear sentence?

    1. wow who cares how he spelled anything! your attitude sucks he has a valid problem and all you look at is his spelling lol really wait until they let you go and you have a family to take care of bet you wont be worried about if your "i" is capitalized ugh

  6. Dear Anonymous Writer,

    Re: Oct 27, 2011 @4:13pm

    For your information! I happen to know a store manager "the store manager"! at a Lowe's store in the Inland Empire, who needs to take an english class, because her grammar sucks! and she's a store manager!
    I going to bite my tongue for your crude remarks - shame on you!

  8. I have a complaint about one of your stores in Philadelphia. I went to the store with my 2 grandsons and one had crutches. I told the other one to get him a motorized cart and I went to the ladies room. when I returned he was just standing there and the employee said that an STATE ID was needed to ride in the motorized cart in your store. I was like where the hell are we, on the Eway???? I really think that was cruel to a disabled person (no matter what age) and further more we came into your store as customers and was treated like ..... think about it?????

    ReplyDelete
  9. I hope these complaints are being read by someone at corporate!
    I can't believe the anonymous comment that was posted yesterday about the
    motorized cart - that's ridiculous!!
    If I were that person and was there to place a special order, I would have walked out and gone to The Home Depot!

  11. I am very upset with Lowe's service in Colonial Heights Virginia. I have used Lowes services for years while I lived in NC for my rental property - never ever had an issue. Not so in VA! Horrible, horrible delivery service. delivery guys were late, didn't know what they were doing, mucked up the washer. Lowes made it right and asked if they would "keep my business". I let them have a 2nd chance but no more. Delivery scheduled for 4-6 No call till 9pm. Forget it! I cancelled the sale and am off to Home Depot!

  12. The bottom line is that this is a corporation. Their main focus is to stock warehouse style stores full of the supplies they advertise toward an audience with a need, then sell them at "competitive" prices. Nothing in that implies they actually care one way or another about the morale of the employees or whether or not you, the individual consumer, felt you received enough of a red carpet treatment while you were there. Due to their size they are able to undercut prices at local hardware stores and choke out competition making them the only logical choice in today's deplorable economy. So, much like our government, they remain in power because we the, economically concerned, don't have a better option. This applies to competition such as Home Depot, who due to financial agreements, either settle on the same price for something of the same brand or sell a different brand altogether. This ensures that both stores accomplish the same goal, appear to be rivals, and catch the flow of dissatisfied customers that will inevitably leave each store to pursue a "better experience" at the other. So, before any more complaints or suggestions are posted on this forum, just remember that the person being paid to sort through them probably cares even less than the soulless corporate businessmen who are likely to never hear about you, or this post.

  13. 14 months and two HORRIBLE delivery experiences with Lowes. As a consumer, I documented the first experience to store manager and district manager and never received any type of response. Here I am 14 months later, pulling out a copy of the first letter so I can send to corporate with a new letter regarding hte two days I have wasted waiting for a delivery that has not shown up. The store manager is rude and not helpful with a simple "nothing I can do about it". It is clear why Lowes offers FREE delivery, they cannot charge this bad service.

  16. Think twice about buying a Lowe's gift card. I bought one for $50 but the cashier only recognized the card being worth $8. After several lengthly discussions with the store and a subsequent visit to the store to speak with the manager and after I produced my receipt I was able to recieve the remainder of what I was entitled. But why go through the hassle and incovenience of using a gift card? Why take the chance of buying one...better just to skip it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't know what the hell the lot of you are complaining about. It's a corporation, not your down the street locally owned hardware store. The employees are paid rock bottom, because the customers want to pay rock bottom prices.

    Bottom line, if you want better customer service, and better service in general, go to the small independent hardware store owner - because they care about your business on a local level. Lowes, HD, and bigger corps can not deliver that kind of service because they are tailoring their service to the masses. If you have so much to complain about, then go elsewhere.

    Oh - and one more thing. To the moron who initially started with the " I got fired " post for driving a forklift without wearing a seatbelt - I offer two things:

    1. WTF?!? No punctuation, mis-spellings, and you are ticked off over losing your minimum-wage job? Seriously? Florida is an at-will work state. That means you can quit whenever you wan without reason, and they can release you whenever they want without reason. So - cry me a river elsewhere.

    2. If you had hurt yourself or someone else because you fell out of your forklift and you were not wearing the seatbelt, not only could OSHA have a field-day with Lowe's, but I am certain that someone somewhere would have taken your 3 second error in judgement to put the seat-belt on, and turned it into a multi-million dollar loss for the company. Before you decide that they are wealthy and can afford it, consider that the profit margin ( assuming it's 15-25% ) would likely dictate that per each million given, the company would have to sell considerably more to raise that. Secondly, the lawyers get 40%, and you would end up with squat.

    So - think about it before you go whine in public.

  18. I was informed by the manager of my local Lowe's that the company no longer offers a military discount to veterans with service connected disabilities (Class 1 & 2). However, they will still offer the discount to active duty personel and retired veterans.

    I have a difficult time understanding why those veterans who retired from the military deserve your discount, but a veteran who served on the front lines and received wounds that resulted in life time disabilities, wounds that were serious enough to end his military career, isnt worthy of this discount. According to Loew's policy, a man who worked as a military clerk and never went abroad will get this discount, but a veteran who served 15 years and lost his legs will not. I think the executive who made this decision should be available to explain this policy to those veteran who shop at your stores.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe just maybe some of us that retired werre injured in the line of duty. Maybe just maybe our separation papers reads "HONORABLE". What does yours read, maybe a lower discharge. By the way a veteran that lost his legs has the same color ID card as a dependent and that card works in Lowes for a 10% discount. Oh by the way a DD214 is proof enough as to military service for Lowes. Go on across the street to the orange box and ask for a military discount, they will laugh at you.

      Delete
    2. Wrong answer! Home Depot also give a 10% discount. They don't advertize it but if you show your card you will get 10% off.

      Delete
    3. The Home Depot does offer a 10% discount just like Lowes. They difference is the don't advertise it. If you show your Mil ID, you will get the discount. Don't think that Lowes has something over Home Depot.

  19. Lowe's website was not working the entire Black Friday weekend. I tried to place an order and when you got to check-out there was a picture of tools and a notice that said "Our Website is Experiencing Technical Difficulties." As a result of this I missed the entire sale check-out pricing. I sent an email to the Lowe's Customer Service and followed up with the fill-out form on their website. I also called to place the order on Sunday but the recording says THEY ARE CLOSED (huh?)... it is now Tuesday and I still received no reply. I am calling customer service as I am typing this and I am a pretty patient guy but I have been holding for them for ... 25:10 minutes so far. Wish me luck. I never experienced this with Sears in all my life of shopping with them. It's a shame because Lowe's spends so much money in advertising and I just want to spend a lousy $360 with them right now.

  20. I hoped the new Lowes they built in Palm Bay, Fla. would have a nicer group of emplyees, but today I found out they must all be alike. I am 4' 11 and older, as I pulled a heavy flat bed cart loaded with 400 lbs of salt, I pasted men who worked there and even approached the male cashier out of breath. As usual no one offered to help me in the store or to my van. There are thousands of unemployed people out there, How about hiring a few helpful ones. We older people would really like a helping hand sometimes, at least ask.

    1. Well you could always hire one of the many unemployed people in your area and have them help you load and unload the salt. This way when you get home you have nothing to worry about.

  21. Lowes, is firing employees to improve their bottom line. They look for reasons to document employee performance NOW more than ever. This store is notorious for bringing agony to families of emloyees during the holiday season. They are very methodic in their tactics, acting in un-christian like behavior and un-american in their business processes, and despotic in their management methods and practices.
    Jereme (store manager) and his management staff are taking all steps in an unethicaj manner to salvage their bonuses and store 2609 bottom line at the expense of loyal hardworking employees. They say where there is smoke there is fire. Lowes Corporate and Outside consumer advocate groups should look into their evil ways.

  22. Shame on Lowe's for pulling their commercials from "All American Muslim" because of complaints by a radical Christian group. I am a 69 year old, anglo, Protestant American woman and I will no longer shop at Lowe's. You claim to be concerned with diversity and community. I call that hypocrisy.

  23. My wife’s father has over 10 patents on products sold at Lowes and your competitors.
    I have shopped at Loews many times myself. Your company pulling your ads from “All American Muslins” was a horrible PR move for a couple of reasons.
    1. You look like you are easily persuaded by religious extremist groups. That says to me that your core leadership is not strong and company stability is week.
    2. Any company that is successful knows to stay out of religion and politics. Asks your selves what percent of my customers are religious extremists? Is the publicity you are receiving being associated with extreme Christian groups generating you more business?
    3. With this national publicity you are alienating potential customers that are offended by your religious stance and will take their business to your competitors.
    4. How many of the products that you sell and profit from were created by Muslims? I can count 10 personally so we all know that the number must be higher than that. Don’t bight the hand that feeds you and don’t mix business with politics.

  24. I am extremely disappointed in Lowe's! I have shopped Lowe's for many years, and usually like it better than the the other 'big box' stores. The fact that you caved to a extreme, fanatical religious hate group has changed my opinion! I will now take my business elsewhere.

  28. How American that when a group or business chooses to not support a radical "religion" it's a move filled with prejudice and hatred, but when the same thing occurs toward anything considered Christian it's perfectly fine. A company is an independent entity and can choose to support or not support whatever show, action, book, etc. it chooses. How interesting the description "extreme, fanatical, religious, hate group." Guess our founding fathers would be members of an "extreme, fanatical, religious, hate group." If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for everything. Case in point. Thanks Lowes for standing up for basic, American beliefs!

Fanatics and bigots should not be followed. I am a 57 year old white Catholic. I make the decisions in my family where to buy things and will have to re evaluate my shopping at Lowe's. At the very least it will not be my first stop anymore.

    He may not be my senator, but I'm glad he wrote that letter (I am writing one too). I hope it helps to resolve the "religious bigotry" that Lowe's did by pulling the ads from TLC's "All American Muslim". As American's we must protect our "Freedoms".

  34. I commend Lowes for their decision to pull advertsing from the "American Muslim" television show. As a private corporation/company they have the right to support and advertise as they see fit. Senator Lieu should mind his own business. If they had pulled their advertisign from a Christian type of programming nothing would have been said or done about it. This country was founded on Christian priniciples and far to many attacks have been made on Christians and on the principles of Christianity that this country was founded upon. I will continue to shop at Lowes and support their decision 100%. Although I must admit that Lowes Customer Service is terrible at best, and my wife works for Lowes and I dont agree with a lot of their work policies, but at least has a job.

  44. I am appalled about Lowe's decision to pull their television ads from All American Muslim, a current running show because bigots complained that they did not want to see the commercial of an American company during this show. This is down right racist. To even bend to the views of the groups/people whom complained to Lowe's is making Lowe's as culpable in racisim as the complaining parties. I grew up in an America that attacked, beat and stepped in the way of Black citizens (as well as other ethnic groups) and knew in my heart that something was not right. I learned to be "different" from what I was taught and stood against racism from a young age even if it meant punishment against me. I will not stand for a company supporting racism and then stating they "had to pull the ads" because of "popular" view. This is racism and I will never shop at a Lowe's again even if they issue an apology. Shame on Lowe's. Shame on those whom made the decision to pull ads. Shame on the groups/people whom got Lowe's to side with their racist viewpoints. Shame on any American whom would support the pulling of these ads...NONE of you were originally here on American soil.

  45. Dear Lowes,
    Do your research: Minority groups are untapped custumers potential. Be it racial or religious minorities. I have no problem taking my business elsewhere.

  46. I would just like to thank and commend Lowes for their decision to “respectfully defer to communities, individuals and groups to discuss and consider such issues of importance”.
    The people who refer to Lowe’s as “fanatics and bigots” for pulling their support from the ”All-American Muslim” (reality?) show seem to be far more fanatical and bigot racist than Lowe’s.
    The last sentence (and only the last sentence) of LaNelle’s comment above is correct “As Americans we must protect our freedoms”.
    That is exactly what Lowe’s did. It is an American freedom to support or not support whomever you chose.
    Lowe’s did not condemn Muslims, they just chose to not support the TV program with the company money.
    God bless Lowe’s.

  47. I agree with Nancy. If people here would only read the news and do some research maybe they would understand but they do not care about anyone else but themselves. They do not care about offending others not like them. Lowes, don't be intimidated by a few people. Thanks for having some guts.

  48. Lowes has the right to spend their advertising dollars any way they want. This is the "American Way". The right of Muslims to boycott Lowes is also the "American Way".
    Accusing people of bigotry just because they disagree is not American. It is intimidation. It is what happens today when minority groups don't get their way.
    Lowes has been a great business in all the different communities across America.
    Stand firm Lowes. America will support you in your choice.

  49. I am very disapointed in Lowes for the position they have taken re: the American Muslim television program. Given that Lowes desires to defer from such issues, I will be watching with interest to see if Lowes has any advertising that promotes Christmas. I've been a weekly shopper at Lowes for years, but If I see any Lowes advertisements during any Christmas program, I promise to take my business to Home Depot. I also represent numerous business interests, and I will insure that they no longer conduct business with Lowes in the future.

  50. Congratulations to Lowes for taking a stand in what they believe and not giving in to the pressure to be "tolerant" and politically correct. I will be a life long customer that is unless you give in and relent to the pressure. By the way, California Legislators should concern themselves with their terrible state and not what businesses do in advertising.

  51. I just saw a news report on my computer that Lowes has pulled its advertising from the television show American Muslim. First let me say that I am not a Muslim. I only watched the show once and it was less than compelling. But I also took a close look at the Florida Family Association website to see what sort of an outfit this was. Well it seems that this organization has one major function, to organize consumer boycotts against media presentations which do not adhere to its narrow, ignorant and bigoted view of the world. Just how many members does this organization really have?
    I live up here in New York State and have a very different view of the world and this country. America is a large and pluralistic country and frankly I do not care a whit what some two bit organization of bigots down in Florida thinks. A lot of different kinds of people live in America, even in Florida. I do care if they can intimidate a company like Lowes and if they can I am not sure I can patronize that company in the future.
    Now let me take you back a few generations to the early 1950’s when a grocery store owner in up State New York decided that he was going to be the arbiter of who was a good American and who was not. So he published a screed called “Red Channels”. A lot of his information was wrong. A lot of his information was gossip and hearsay. But he managed through intolerance and bigotry to ruin the lives of countless persons in the broadcasting industry.
    Now there is a lesson here and I surely hope you get it. You accomplish nothing by pulling your advertising from this TV show. Folks like myself and I guess Muslims also need to improve their homes. Maybe we will shop somewhere else. If a two-bit organization can intimidate Lowes then some day the forces of intolerance will come for you. What a tragedy.

  53. I stopped shopping at Home Depot (Homo Depot) a while ago (months ago) due to thier stance on the issue of homosexuality. I have voted with my dollars. I appreciate Lowe's stance on advertising on the Muslim American program and would ask that they stand firm. Many of us appreciate your decisions like this.

    Congrats Lowe's for standing up to the PC crowd and voicing what most of us can't. Not all Muslims are bad, but Islam is the only major "religion" not to have gone through a reformation. The Koran teaches to convert, subjugate or kill ALL infidels (non-muslims.) When asked for their source of religious inspiration and instruction on the meaning of the Koran, leading muslim clerics point to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, now serving a life sentence for the planning of the 911 attacks. Until "moderate" Muslims worldwide stand up and denounce terrorism we can only assume at least tacit approval. Their silence is deafening. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will continue supporting Lowe's with my dollars.

    1. former muslims who were born into islam says THERE ARE NO SUCH THING as moderate and good muslim. ISLAM was founded by muhammed by mass murder and war. Muhammed was a warlord, he even attempted to fight the mongols under ghenkis kahn and got annihilated. They have conquered and forced ISLAM with their oppression on every land they immigrated or conquered. Just ask the spaniards, the french, egypt etc. Why not ask the east indians, africans, southern russians and chinese and philippines? When will the western world realize that muslims were never peaceful and it has always been a WARRING RELIGION OR CULT!

    2. That senator lieu is a DOMESTIC ENEMY and a criminal. He and his liberal thugs HAVE NO RIGHT AND IS ILLEGAL and any actions he decides to take in violating the RIGHTS of a private company. It's an attack on our rights. IT IS MUSLIMS THAT NEED TO LEAVE THIS COUNTRY OR APOLOGIZE FOR THEIR ACT OF WAR AGAINST ALL AMERICANS AND ALL NON MUSLIMS. Until muslims apologize and assimilate to our LAWS, they either need to leave the country or face the consquences of an ALL OUT WAR against them by the rest of us of all ethnicities who are fed up with the mass murderring and oppressive muslims worldwide. It is our duty to defend the UNITED STATES againt FOREIGN and DOMESTIC ENEMIES, in this case muslims and their defenders or LIBERAL thugs like senator lieu who needs to step down from his office. The constitution is superior to any muslim law. If muslims don't like it, they need to be removed from the country and their supporters. This is an ACT OF WAR towards us by liberals and muslims. CANNOT BE TOLERATED.

  56. A corporation is in business to make a profit while providing a product or service to be consumed by a portion of the public who need or want the product or service. When did corporations become accountable for making all portions of the public support them? All corporations make business decisions every day to improve the profitability of the corporation in order to provide a return on the investments stockholders made, to stay in business which provides jobs as well as the desired product or service, etc. Why can't corporations just focus on the reason they are in business?

  57. I am a Christian African American Senior Citizen. Fortunately I was raised to view a person or group on their individual merits, not stereotypes, racism or religious intolerance. So I am very disappointed in Lowe's dropping the advertisement for All-American Muslim.

    I grew up during a time when, right winged extremist and religious groups, white supremacist were the terrorist in my life and still are.

    My Uncle was lynched in Texas just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was just one of many. Our church was burned down as well as well as many others. I developed a form of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)and was deathly afraid of white people while growing up.

    I don't fear Muslims, it is the radical white Christian groups here in America that are more dangerous. Remember Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing?

    An entire race, religion or nationality should not be penalized for the acts of a small group of fanatics. Fanatics exist in every race religion and nationality.

    I have already removed Lowe's from my stock portfolio and will no longer be shopping there.

  58. I find it sad that because of a bigotry faith based organization Lowes felt the need to pull their advertising from the program 'All American Muslim.' It is a sad day in our so-called modern society that bigotry is so prevalent. The program is being Muslim in America not being terrorist in America. We do live in a society where decisions can be made and for whatever reasons, however to make these decisions bases on hate and intolerance is unacceptable and doing so the name of Americanism is a giant step backwards. It is very true we all have the right to shop where we please for whatever reason we have, that merchants have the right to pull their advertising for whatever reason, even the reason of intolerance and bigotry. I, too, have the right to spend my hard earned dollars elsewhere.

  59. I just got home from school and figure since I've turned 18, I can post something here. I was taught social responsibility, that we care for not only ourselves and ours, but also for our global family. If that makes me politically correct and guilty of social responsibility then so be it. Guilty as charged. I also googled the Florida Family Association before I decided I could write something. It seems there is a lot of fear in their views. My Muslim friends have not taken part in any unAmerican activities and the people I've seen on this program haven't either...as well as the millions of Muslims living in this country and in other countries. So, what is the FFA doing? They seem to be spreading their fear of Muslims to others. Why? It is not clear as to the why of their campaign on their website...just that they think Muslims are different. Elderly are different than me, but I don't discriminate against them or try to get companies to discriminate against them (and there are a lot of shows with older people in them). The Jewish family that lives down the street is different than me as well as the teacher I have who is 300 or so pounds and same, I don't discriminate against them. What I do know is there are more similarities than differences and if we as Americans focus on excluding or silencing types/groups/ethnicities of others than we are not living as Jesus wants us to live. Instead of trying to get companies to join in a campaign to silence people, we should ask ourselves what would Jesus do? Lowes and the other companies can spend where they want, but them saying they pulled their advertising because of public opinion did not represent me, so how can I spend my part time job money at any of these stores or companies? I can't and I'm only a little person, but I bet other socially responsible people think like me.

  60. I am ashamed of what Lowes has done so very pubically for a racist, homophobic and now, Islamophobic organization such as the FFA.
    The Lowes executive who made this decision based on being told what to do by that racist organization should do the right thing and resign or at the very least, walk back the action - immediately.
    Since when is religious persecution an American thing to do. The coward that bowed to the FFA and also, the cowards that continue to let this fester will destroy year-end sales - you know and I know it.
    The people that support your action are bigoted low information people - you really think they are going to bring year-end sales up? Not likely.
    By this one action - Executives at Lowes have destroyed nationwide sales - therefore you are hurting Lowes employees and Lowes financial year end results. Very stupid move. Seriously, when did being bigoted become fun for Lowes?

  61. I knew my comment would not be posted. Anytime a white american terrorist group is mentioned in a post, it is reviewed and then never posted. White Americans have committed more atrocities than the Nazi's. Hundreds of Native American Tribes wiped out. Millions of black slaves, kidnapped, abused and murdered. The consistent hatred and racism spewed by whites. They must believe that God only gives them the right to live in this country.

    Now I know that your company represents the worst in this country.

    Wait till I notify all my Facebook friends and family. They are in many states in the contiguous United States and also including Hawaii and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Also, Germany, Canada, Egypt, United Arab Emirates. The numbers will continually grow and spread like wildfire.

    I feel sorry for anyone that is a bigot and hateful. They don't realize that this blackens their souls and brings darkness and evil into their lives.

  62. It is NOT about religious freedom and it is not about racism. It is about shariah law (Islamic law). Shariah law is not confined to purely religious matters, however, if you are Muslim, you follow the Quran, shariah law is a very big part of the Quran. It is also in the constitutions of Egypt (1980), Pakistan (1979), and Iraq (even more recent, not sure of the year). Everything about shariah law is against our laws and all the other religions practiced in the US. I am not against anyone who practices their religion as long as it is not violent and does not encroach on others rights, but tell me how do you practice your religion if you are a Muslim without the Quran? Muslims lie. That's what they do. They were given permission by Muhamed to lie to further Islam. They kill Christians and anyone who is not Muslim for crying out loud. That is their goal in life. People need to wake up. I am sure that there are Muslims that say they do not believe in shariah law, but shariah law is part of the Quran. That would be like a Christian saying, I am a Christian, but I do not believe in what the Bible teaches. There is nothing good about shariah Law. They kill their own daughters when they "shame" their families, men are allowed to do anything they want to their wives (rape, beat, torture....anything). In 2008 a muslim father killed his 17 and 18 year old daughters in Texas for becoming too Western (he found out that they had boyfriends). In 2009 in NY a Muslim man beheaded his wife in what was thought to be an honor killing, in 2011 a Muslim stepfather stalked his 20 year old stepdaughter to Michigan from Minnesota to perpetrate yet another Muslim honor killing because she was not being Muslim enough, she was not wearing a headscarf. Oh, and by the way she escaped to Michigan to her non-muslim Grandmothers with the help of her friends to get away from him...etc. etc. etc. Personally, I am sick and tired of those that are so apathetic, politically correct, or just plain blind and stupid to the way of Muslims. Americans are very well known for their bleeding hearts. We have become gullible. It is past time that we started defending our beliefs against those that are trying to destroy them. It is not about religious freedom. It is about the violence that is perpetrated on others. We have to defend what made America so great. We are being invaded from the inside, and only "We the People" will be able to fix it. It is time we took a stand and said enough is enough. People get educated, do some research about what you so whole heartedly support. I think that you will be very stunned at what you learn. Hooray Lowes...you can bet you will get my business as often as possible.

  64. United States Senator Ted Lieu, (D-Torrence, Ca.) reportedly told the Associated Press today that he would consider legislative action if Lowe's didn't apologize to Muslims and reinstate their advertising on "All-American Muslim". He also called Lowe's decision "un-American". What is truly un-American is that ANY politician would have the audacity to think it is proper to legislate where an American company puts it's advertising dollars. Since when does Washington dictate how and where Corporate America advertises? Furthermore, in a "down economy" it is unwise to boycott a company, potentially exacerbating a downward economic spiral, which if successful, could financially wound a company and LEAD TO MORE LAYOFFS! LIEU NEEDS TO CONCENTRATE ON REPAIRING THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AND THE EVER-SPIRALING NATIONAL DEBT, THAN TRYING TO RE-TOOL LOWE'S. NO WONDER WASHINGTON IS IN THE DO-NOTHING, MESS OF A QUAGMIRE THAT HAS AMERICAN CONFIDENCE IN CONGRESS AT AN ALL TIME LOW!

    A little info on the man who started this and his organization (Florida Family Association): The Florida Family Association is definately a group that tries to make hate palatable (google their problems and also the people they go after, don't just take my word for it). Their website has been suspended currently by order of owner, David Caton. Florida Family Association has had "hacker" problems before when the attacks on groups and people have not accomplished what they have wanted them to. Then they cry victim. It's like an abusive person in a family when someone eventually smacks them back...they cry victim. Logic dictates that this current hacker attack may just be an "inside" job, lol. There is no indication that Caton has contacted the Florida Attorney General's Office which looks into problamatic/threatening internet cases as well as the FBI. Boy, they would be first on my list as well as law enforcement and both would be concerned about death threats (both at a state and national level). Again, David Caton is crying victim. Seems like his lies and half truths which he uses to attack others may not be working all that well for him right now. I read the "click and send" email you could send from Caton's site about this show and other "click and send" emails. The emails use the word "propaganda" but give no instances of propaganda. The email states "Islamic agenda" but gives no clear indication what the Islamic agenda is. The email states "American values" but gives no idea what those values are. A few more things to add. The Florida Family Assiciation is tax exempt as they are a non-profit organization. David Caton used to be an activist for the American Family Association...but there was a parting between them...over what, who knows, but it seems like they even wanted to get rid of a bad apple. And, the FFA has been guilty of violating Florida election laws because it accepted donations in excess of state limits. It is very sad that Lowe's became embroiled in all of this and I have no respect for a company that would blindly accept click and send emails (all saying exactly the same thing, instead of original thoughts by each sender) that are based on fear, racism, and statements that have no truth to them (and that these click and send emails represent popular opinion). For those of you on here with fear of Islamic wiritngs, please go back and read our (yes, I'm a Christian) writings. As a person in a previous posting stated...what would Jesus do...and I'm sure Jesus would not be too thrilled with the pseudo-Christianinity that is being touted throughout this thread. BUT, thankfully we now know who and what Lowe's is and I side with those to say I will not spend my dollars there!

    Dear Lowe’s Home improvement chain,

    On behalf of myself, my immediate family and many of my extended family members and Neighbors I wish to register our support of Lowe’s CEO Mr. Robert Niblock’s decision to refuse to support with advertisement the television show “All American Muslim”. We as a group feel shows such as this a continuation of a current effort to farther ideas and views that are not in the best interest of our American Society.
    I feel obligated to point out that the aforementioned group of customers are individual home owners who do most of our own remodel / addition projects and out building construction, as well as maintenance and upkeep and when we do use contractors we usually purchase materials and supplies ourselves or at least insist on knowing where they are being purchased. Most of the group I speak of in this letter refuse to patronize Home Depot for various reasons. We confine our purchases mostly to Lowe’s and a lesser degree to small hardware stores.
    I realize a small number of do it yourselfers don’t carry a lot of weight in the grand scheme of things
    but in light of recent negative media publicity of Lowe’s decision in this matter we wanted to voice our sincere and wholehearted support of your actions.
    As far as the television show mentioned here I have only watched a few minutes of one episode and decided it was not a show I wished to see, however I now plan to view another episode with the sound muted for the express purpose to take note of the sponsors.
    Again ,We offer our sincere and wholehearted support of your current actions of refusing to support this Show and will support any future similar actions. Added Note for this post, This letter was sent to Lowe's CEO Mr. Robert Niblock in support of his action. also any one who would think for a nanosecond that they had a muslim "friend" probably thinks a rattlesnake makes a good pet.
    Ten year USAF Veteran who has seen and experienced enough to know whats coming.

  73. Thank you Lowe's for standing up for American principles. To all you people who would prefer to end up dead, or muslim, consider the what the Bible says. Every instance referring to where the righteous stand, puts them on the Right hand of God, whereas the evil are put to the left. Now we know why true Republicans are said to be "right", and American hating democrats (that's socialists to you and me) are said to be "left" (the ones on His left will be thrown into the lake of fire). Also consider that most of you will insist that America is a democracy. You are so wrong!!!!! America is a REPUBLIC, and our Pledge of Allegiance is the simplest form of proof there is to back this up. "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands..." I find it sad that you socialists will call Christian groups terrorists, but a group that has made it a point to let the whole world know that they plan to kill or convert everyone is defended by you disgusting people. I for one, support Lowe's decision and will now spend my money there rather than a company that supports anti-American sentiments. And finally, I say shame on all you Anti-American's who don't support this decision. You should either move to a muslim nation, or take their other option (the one that they want, if you don't convert). America would be a much better place without scum like you in it.

I am glad you have the guts to stand up for your right to decide when and where to advertise. I'm not sure who these people are who think otherwise.

Thank you also for making a stand to not go back on your decision. I applaud your corporation!

Muslims and their supporters are ENEMIES of the world period and of all races. There are no one more RACIST and OPPRESSIVE then a muslim. They get offended for you just being a NON muslim.

    Anonymous 7:45PM...Lowes chose to financially wound itself (and it's employees) by supporting a Christian (though not Christian to me as REAL followers of Christ do not do things like this!) fringe nonprofit tax exempt organization when they got dozens (not thousands or millions) of click/send emails from the FFA website that has shut itself down (last night supposidly because of a hacker...but looks like the "hacker" was from inside the FFA, not from outside). Lowe's has every right to advertise it's company where it wants...but when it comes to "because of emails" with a popular opinion (since when did racism become a popular opinion in today's world) based on a straw man concept...they can suffer the consequences. No one but Lowe's made this decision based on the campaign formulated by Florida Family Association. If they wish to stand by their decision of racism, then so be it...take what comes with the decision. I agree with biggabarz above...point blank...wrong, cowardly, soldiers of a hate group (may have been unwittingly...but still soldiers of a hate group). FFA...kinda like the National Socialist Democratic Party in Germany, eh? That's how it starts. And when people support tearing apart others...again, that's how it starts. The businesses that fell to the ploys of the FFA are starting to suffer...won't bother the FFA at all. I have empathy for all the Lowe's employees they will have to fire over a decrease (already started...and they ARE already feeling it) in profit.

  77. American Citizen.I commend your decision to withdraw advertising support of the "All American Muslim" TV program. The fact that Ca.
    Senator Lieu is displeased with this decision is not representative of the opinion of the majority of Americans on this issue. While we are, as Americans, overwhelmingly supportive of freedom of religious expression, it does not mean that we are supportive of those beliefs that serve as a goal to destroy other religions and to murder those in opposition to specific religious beliefs. Despite the denial by some that the Koran does not advocate the murder of non Muslims I suggest you read the book. Lowe's has the right to advertise and promote as they please and all of the rhetoric decrying their position denies their right to promote their company and to sponsor programs without interference by government or self interest groups or organizations. And most specifically by some lightweight Ca. Senator.

  83. I find it egregious that Lowes, a company I preferred over Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Target, Ace and other local merchants chose to pull advertisements from "All-American Muslim".

    What most narrow minded individuals and it seems your company forget that this country is forged and continues to evolve on the disparate experiences and religions that we are fortunate enough to enjoy.

    Cases on point:

    Kennedy was the first Catholic president of our country, much was feared of him. Romney is now a front leader for the Republicans and he is a Mormon, much is feared of him. One of our greatest Supreme Court Justices Fortis was a Jew,much was feared of him. Malcolm X who condemned Elijah Muhammad for hate speech and violent tendencies, much was feard from him.

    I would much rather have an "All American Muslim" sit next to me on a plane than the above narrow minded, isolationist, and ignorant people about the Muslim faith that have posted here.

    I guarantee you I will not shop at a Lowes again until a full and complete apology is issued from you about the wrong you have done in setting back out society with this knee jerk reaction to a minority of ignorant individuals.

    To be clear, I am not a Muslim but I know that 99.9 percent of Muslims find the actions of the radical Muslim sect abhorrent.

    Lowes, you owe the 99.9 percent of the Muslim faith an apology.

You can shove your stupid crap with your muslim buddies. I REPRESENT the majority of AMERICANS who are fed up with racist liberals like you and your RACIST oppressive muslim scum. YOU DO NOT HAVE RIGHT TO TRY TO TELL ANYONE WHERE TO SPEND THEIR MONEY AND PROPERTY. If you want to live in a DICTATORSHIP, GO LIVE IN SAUDI ARABIA AND COMMUNIST COUNTRIES. I guarantee you liberal and muslim thugs, YOU WILL BE FOUGHT by the SILENT majority in the U.S. we are sick of you, most of us who are of many ethnic groups are sick of you liberals and muslims!

  85. Thank you Lowes for pulling the ads on American Muslim. If you had pulled the ads from a show named American White Guy these same people would be talking how progressive you all are. Stick to the decision and advertise with whom you want and whom the people that pay your bills want.

  86. If you don't want to advertise on that show, you have every right. Since when were you required to support every show on TV. I admire your stance and I will continue to shop at your store. I wish these idiots would concentrate on their own business, like raising and feeding their children and being kind to their neighbors. Geez.......

  87. There have been a lot of comments about this action and none have said what seems to be obvious to me.

    The decision expressly goes against the first amendment.
    Lowe's may argue that in it's non-support it is exercising free speech but truly it is not.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    This is not an issue of racism.
    People of the Muslim faith can be any race.

    This is about wishing to oppress religious freedom.

    Lowes has the opportunity to support a program that will help it's watchers differentiate between the peaceable practice of a religious faith and the terrorism that has come to be associated with it by virtue of a small percentage of it's followers.

    Lowes has the opportunity to show that the rights expressed through the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution apply to all Americans.

    Fleeing from religious persecution is what brought many of our country's first non-aboriginal people here.
    It is a sad irony that in a country that expressly doesn't have an official religion we ignore our own ideals.

MUSLIMS are not here to FLEE religious prosecution, they are here to IMPOSE their UGLY oppressive cult by FORCING the rest of us to ACCEPT their MURDEROUS cult on those who DON'T WANT THEIR SATANIC cult of islam. If you want things done your way and the way of muslims. I SUGGEST you leave the country and take your muslims with you, because YOU AND THEY are VIOLATING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS DUMBASS!

  88. Shame on Lowes for pulling the ads of a TV show about American Muslims. Are you following in the footsteps of Nazi Germany when those of the Jewish faith were labeled enemies of the state. What is the difference. Extreme so called Christians who do not practice Christianity are the the group corporations should bow down to. Until this is reversed, Iwill be shoppiing at Home Depot.

  89. I'm not concerned with Lowe's pulling advertising off a show, what I am concerned about is the reasons why Lowe's pulled it's advertising. They seem to proudly align themselves with a hate group's agenda. Lowe's is the only company our of the 60 some companies that has publicly stated their reasoning. Though racist, cowardly and hatred promoting they did stand behind their decision. They have every right to do what they did even though their reasoning for doing what they did is faulty. I guess a lot of people think racism and hatred is an American value and a lot of people don't know about the large portion of Muslims whom do not subscribe to violence nor understand the cultures of the Middle East...guess since I lived there for many years I have some insight. It is not about political correctness to make a stand against the seeds of racism and racism. It's about right and wrong. Also, about knowledge so people are not ignorant. My grandparents did not mind their own business when the Nazi's were killing people in their country of Germany. They gave shelter to many and helped many to freedom. Minding your own business when a wrong is occuring is being part of the wrong. Being kind to my neighbors is standing up for them when a wrong is committed, even if they live in the next state. I have to drive a little further to get to another store to buy my supplies for the little historic house I'm remodling, but I will so I don't need to support a business that supports hatred, it's the way Lowe's did this and I can't support that at all. I really think a lot of the posters on here need to look at themselves in the mirror and think if they really like what they see. I think many of you might be really sad and fearful people and instead of dealing with yourselves you are maligning others to make yourselves feel better and more powerful. Hope you can bring the goodness out in yourselves for this wonderful season. Peace be with you.

  93. Shame on you, Lowes. Your caving to an incredibly small group of hate mongering, paranoid, delusional and small-minded people illustrates your disconnect from the vast majority of Americans who believe in religious freedom. You've really stepped in it this time.

    I'm buying my husband a new snow blower for Christmas. My budget is $1300. Last weekend we were shopping for one at Lowes with plans to make our choice and return to the Danbury, CT store this coming weekend to purchase it.

    Given your racist and ignorant decision, Lowes has lost us as customers...and we were loyal and generous customers at that! We're going to Sears to buy our snow blower this weekend. And Home Depot has just gotten themselves new customers as well.

    I urge you to reconsider your short sighted and hasty decision. Your corporate brand has been severely damaged. You under estimated how many of us value and support religious freedoms in our country.

  94. This is not about religion. Wake up. our country is at war. The Muslim nation has declared jihad against each and every one of us who are not Muslim. This is also about free enterprise. This corporation has the right to spend their advertising dollars where they want to. Should every advertiser who advertised during a Penn State game also be boycotted because somehow they supported what happened there? Wake up America. Your freedoms are being eroded every day. Lowes - way to take a stand. You have every right to advertise where you want to when you want to. I, for one, salute you. My sons are fighting in this war right now. You support your employees who are fighting in this war. All you did was to show your support for our fighting men and women with your corporate dollars. Do not bend to the bleeding hearts out there who are so removed from the war that they do not recognize the atrocities being committed in the name of religion.

  95. First thing this a.m. , after I'd heard about this filthy, racist policy I decided that Home Depot was also my new shopping place. However, if they have an anti-GLB stance, Ace will be My Place. And there's always Mom and Pop stores.

    Lowes: CHANGE YOUR MINDS. Replace your endorsements or lose me (and my many many dollars spent at your store) forever.

    As for the dingleberry who said "this is not about religion, wake up... Muslims... declared jihad against" U.S.: So, we should also, by your "logic", boycott any and all companies that support Christian philosophy because Timothy McVeigh was a piece of shit. He murdered children. The most innocent of all. Do I hear Christian philosophy denigrated because of McVeigh? Nope. Wonder why... And not every single person (yes, they are people) of Islam have "vowed war" against.

    Kinda like that McVeigh POS.

    Logic? Look it up.

  96. What a joke your company has made of itself. I’ve shopped at Lowe’s for years and regret every dollar I’ve ever spent there now. The Florida Family Association wanted this removed because it didn’t properly show the Muslims as terrorist.

  99. My money is going to Lowe's.......I will never accept a culture that commits horrible acts against women, believes in jihad, and wants all of us "infidels", Both liberals AND conservatives dead! Nor, do I want my son desensitized & indoctranated by the media with these kinds of "mind opening" shows......I want him reading history books that correctly reflect the Muslim world...Word Peace is a Beautiful Dream...But sadly, It's just that...a Dream.
    This show is a smoke screen to the reality...93 percent of Muslims in the world are peaceful. But that also means that 7 percent of 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, which translates to 112 million Muslims, are radical.....The United States support of Israel in the conflict with Palestinians is seen as America’s attack on all Muslims worldwide.The Quran requires Muslims to defend Islam. So if you believe we are attacking Islam then as a Muslim you are required to attack us in defense of your faith.Extremists also claim the United States attacks Islam not only by supporting Israel and with our military presence in the Middle East, but also by exporting our culture through movies, music, the Internet, and other forms of mass communication.
    They see all of that as an imposition of a hedonist, secular culture on the Muslim world. In their world, at least in most of the Muslim world, there is not a significant distinction between faith and life, between church and state as we might say.Another major reason Muslims hate America is based on their understanding of democracy. Because the American people elect the U.S. government and our taxes support the military, Muslim extremists hold American civilians accountable for the “war on Islam."
    There are no innocent civilians. They see us the way you would see Germans who supported Hitler or Japanese who supported the emperor...In their minds, you and I are complicit in this attack on Islam.” ...It's not as easy as "Lets all be friends"....I wish it were!!

  100. Lowes has earned mine and many others business this last week because of your stand against the right to advertise as you see fit, do not let these muslim intruders who are not Americans tell you what to do. I will campaign for more business for you everyday, and I was a Home Depot manager for 11 years. Stand tall and strong !! You will gain many more from this than you will lose, muslims don't know how to build anything anyway, look at their country, builders from other countries build everything of size and substance in their countries. They don't need Lowes to live in caves and huts.

  102. I was saddened to hear that Lowe's was pulling its ad from American Muslim. To give in to pressure from people who are narrow minded and prejudiced is just plain wrong. If the show had a radical agenda and trashed America then I could see it, but the show fosters open mindedness and tolerance. I guess Lowe's decided not to support those ideals. Right is not on your side. I will remember that next time I need something you might sell.

  103. Extremely disappointed in Lowes decision to pull its advertising dollars from the American Muslim show. I am a Christian woman, but find it unconscionable for companies to make money from the general population, yet discriminate with their advertising dollars. This show is an attempt to help Americans understand the daily lives of people of the Muslim faith. It is an effort to dispel many of the stereotypes Americans have about Muslims. We are a society that values freedom of religion, and as such, should never run away from learning about the faith of others - even if we don't practice that faith. Lowes has acted with enormous cowardice and is a very shamefully led institution.

  107. This is about both attacking a group of people and attacking religious freedom. Hence, both racism and an attack on a people to worship as they please (religious freedon). The people involved with 9/11 were Saudi Arabian. None of these families hails from Saudi Arabia. In fact, the US has very good relations with Arabia and has downplayed the fact that those involved were Saudi's (including Osama bin Laden). It is disturbing that there are comments on here about how different "these" people are. David Caton, the one man organization of Florida Family Association who started this campaign against these program (oh, he has also attacked the NEA which I'm a member of, attacking teachers, how low!) says he started this campaign because these people were not like the Muslims that do promote a jihad. He is attacking them because they are ordinary. WHAT? lol!! The trolls on this website are as racist as Lowe's action was (not the taking their advertising away, but for their outdated antiquated racsim and stading against a religion). I don't think God/his Son would be doing such a thing if they were standing here with us today. Some fearful people here and full of hatred if you can spew your xenophobia, racism and hatred like you do. Hope you think about your thoughts and words when December 25th comes along...remember to look up at the star on the eve of this day and justify your actions/thoughts/words.

  108. I am also disturbed that Lowe's has pulled its advertising from American Muslim. In doing so, it validates the views of a fringe group in Florida and the ignorance of the culture shown by many of your posters.
    All Muslims don't want American's dead. All Muslims don't commit honor killings. All Muslims didn't cheer 9/11. After all, do all Christians want non-believers dead? Do all Christians support the Holocaust? Do all Christians want non-Christians to "go back to where they came"?
    Some people do, but these are acts and beliefs of small radical religious groups, not the majority of people who are rational and believe that we *can* all work together for a better future. Our family has friends from many races and religions and our lives have been the richer for it. We believe that God blesses those who follow the precept of loving one another, not those who foment dissension and hatred.

  111. The comments here on all sides about ALL-AMER MUSLIM tend toward spouting personal prejudice about Jesus & the Constitution. Heartfelt outrage but a lot of misinformation. Did anyone watch the 5 episodes to even justify an opinion. Due to the media flap, my family watched all episodes On-Demand last night. We are curious because we live 15 minutes from Dearborn and have friends who live in the midst of this community. After sitting through the marathon, I have to say I get that "good documentary" feeling, being torn back & forth - admiring the strengths of the individuals/community support group and then the toll their family/cultural demands takes. They are admirably focused on something greater than their selfish individuality. The fasting, prayer and charity shown, is a daily practice of the Golden Rule that is rarely seen in anyone's culture. But the gossiping and oppressive focus on family reputation & sexist, Christian-fundamentalist-like judgments of each other are annoying and stifling to me as an outsider. That stuff was actually alarming to us as we watched - but never in a "they are terrorists!" way. More like, this culture tends a little more than we thought toward Christian sects that restrict women's roles, children's behavior, and adherence to community standards. In all, sitting through the family dramas showed us conflicts that every American family struggles with. It's fascinating to watch them deal with all that and the rough edges of their culture, all the while facing our hatred and distrust. As a privileged white Protestant, I could not so easily cope and be an enthusiastic American citizen - sheriff deputy, federal agent, court clerk, business owner, medical professional, educator - like these folks and have their positive outlook. I would respectfully ask that people watch the show before frothing either way on the issue. Not to say that I don't have my opinion about Lowes Corporate. They did not watch the shows or if they did, they listened to some very incompetent exec decision-makers in retreating from this show. There are a lot more educated, patriotic Americans with a lot of money that will resent their actions and than their marketers calculated. Freedom from religious persecution and freedom to pursue a new life with certain inalienable rights is why you and I and the citizens of Dearborn have come to be Americans. People or corporations that can't support the basic rights that forefathers died for, bring shame to the USA and themselves. I can't and won't walk through Lowe's doors or use Kayak.com's services without knowing this. They need to reverse, step away from the haters, & apologize for their mistake. My family and our builders at our Michigan and Florida homes will not resume patronage until this is made right. Stand Up for America if you want to do business here.

  112. I am not an American but been here (legally) for 5 years now. I am also well traveled and worked and stayed in quite a few places around the world. America screams and propagates to the rest of the world to be a just country where people have equal rights and this is the impression many around the world have about America. I did too. Surely I notice the American constitution stands for equal rights. However having stayed in America I came to know people don’t really follow it and this is not true on the ground.
    I did not see anything wrong in ‘All American Muslims’, however there is such reaction and debate over it here. At the same time I see TV channels, radio stations, whole programs on national television dedicated to teachings of the bible and Christianity only. Where are the rest of the religions? When I travel and stay at hotels there is a copy of bible in the hotel rooms. People decide to vote for a candidate depending upon how ‘Christian’ the person is. Same ideology is condemned for other religions elsewhere in the world. For the same crime one will get the most sever sentences while the other could go free depending upon color, race or religion.
    On the ground the reality is hypocrisy. People here are divided by race, color, religion, social & economic classes and the one in majority or powerful reserves rights over the weak or minority.
    Shame on Lowes and the extremists hypocrites for targeting American muslims for their religion. Lowes you lost my business and I will make sure to urge people close to me to boycott Lowes.

  113. Lowes cares nothing about employees or customers. They force casheirs to sell extended protection plans how many they sell determins if the cashier is allowed to stay working or not. The store in mount vernon wa. has a double standard some employess are favored they can text or use cell phone. The store manager has not even managed a hardware store before he was a clothing manager before his judgement is lacking as a manager. Its ok for the managers to make sexual commants towards employees just plain out a bad company greed before honesty.

  114. Hmmm Lowes targets American Muslims, but blesses those who have sex, unappropriate behavior in their store. Store 2586 does just that. I caught 2 employees having sex, and truned them in. I on the other hand had to step down from my position as Head Cashier because of the retalliation against me from other management. I got my car scrathced, told the manager and he said if it wasnt on camera it didnt happen. The two people who are having the affair are working there still, and i got asked to leave. My locker was trashed and I even found a used condomn in my locker, still nothing happened cause it wasnt on camera.

    the HR person was caught at a strip joint with other floor employees, Assistant Manager goes out with others and gets drunk, Department Managers come in drunk and then use the fork lifts and upper Managaement knows this.

    I hope this Muslim choice closes all the stores, shame on all of you who think this and all is ok.
    So many management KNOW about these two and their behavior, they think it's "cute" as the HR manager said to me ne day..." she also said that she would sleep with anyone to keep her job". All I said was WOW.

  118. "What is happening to our United States" is that we've become a nation represented by the insular, ignorant relgious (Christian) right, which is quick to protest any positive representation of other religions. We are no longer inclusive and welcoming to diverse views. It's like we've declared our own Crusades (hundreds of years after Europe did). It's little wonder that the rest of the world laughs at us behind our backs.

  119. Cowardice should be part of Lowe's mission statement. Your decision to pull your ads was based on your fear of a bigoted regilious group, not on normal business factors. That's why I am angry. To those who think Islam is taking over this country, there is no reasoning with the irrational. Freedom of religion is the foundation of our country, not just for Christians and selected Jews. And to think those fearmongers drape themselves in patriotism and God, while they are the epitome of everything the founders of our country were trying to escape, offends me deeply, as an American.

    You are probably incapable of understanding the depth of your ignorance, however, that doesn't mean it should not be pointed out to you. On tv there are shows nearly revolving around the Christians and their obsessive lives (the child collecting Duggars), etc. Is this not the land f the free? Or do religious bullies such as yourself only see that followed by "as long as your practicing what I want"? Our Founding Fathers would be rolling in their graves if they had a clue what they worked so hard for has been pissed away and handed over to the religious.

Until ANY GROUP gets it's act together and cleans up it's own back yard, I applaud Lowes for taking a stand AGAINST VIOLENCE and HATRED against ANYBODY as a whole. That includes many nations around the world, (not just the U.S.) who have suffered at the hands of religious extremists who call themselves a "peaceful" religion. If other "peaceful" members of that religion want to change the way the world looks at them, they need to take matters into their own hands and clean house amongst themselves. THAT, would show the world they are truly "peaceful". Until then, I don't know who the hate mongers are within that "peaceful" religion, so I have to assume many more are hatemongers also, less I end up like many others who "believed" them, only to suffer the consequences. After many instances nationwide, where neighbors and aquaintances stated they couldn't believe their "peaceful" religious neighbors had just killed everybody in their family (twice that I personally know of) or been arrested plotting a bomb attack, (missed the London subway bombing by a week) I'll stand behind the likes of Lowes everytime! We just don't know which ones are, and which ones aren't "peaceful". When they eliminate all the haters from the "peaceful" ones within their own ranks, I'll begin to listen to them. Keep up the good work Lowes!

  128. I, for one, hope that many of the posts on here were written by trolls hoping to get a reaction. If they were not, the level of ignorance and the appalling hypocrisy of people identifying themselves as Christian is astonishing. They most certainly are not Christian.

    Lowes ought to be ashamed of cowardly caving in to the demands of a small group of narrow minded people when instead it could have claimed the high ground by continuing to support the tv series that gave this country some insight into the lives of ordinary Muslims. It was clear that the families in the program were not by any stretch of the imagination posing a danger to anyone. They were decent, sober hardworking Americans. God knows, this country would benefit if more families shared their ethics - which doesn't mean their religious beliefs.

    My ancestors helped to start, fought, bled and died for the Revolution so that people could live in freedom which also meant they could practice whatever faith they wished, or none at all. There's nothing in the Constitution that says this is a Christian country, much as those that do not know their history think. A previous poster accurately reminded us: "As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion..." Treaty of Tripoli Article 11" This treaty was written by President John Adams in 1797.

    I will not be shopping at Lowes until it proves itself to be more welcoming and broadminded - which means, more truly American.

  129. Personally, I could care less who is what religion. Any omnipotent God will make sure the children He/She or It cares about, will be taken care of. What we all ought to be caring about here, is eliminating violence from all religions. Unfortunately, muslims think theirs is the only one. Millions (Billions) of others the world over do not. You can believe anything you want, but don't try to change me or mine. You don't see any other religion but muslums killing people all over the world, trying to eradicate peaceful believers who want nothing else but to worship whom or whatever they want in peace. Anonymous above was correct when he/she stated muslims need to clean up their own back yard. The ignorance and intolerance taught them by their imams has clearly infected those who do not have the ability to reason effectively, and chose to do the bidding of evil leaders within their mosques. Murder is murder, no matter the cause, OR, how it takes place. Loews, justifiably so, decided to NOT APPEAR to back such violence, and I don't blame them. Mis-directed anger is a sign of mental instability. Get angry at the ones perpatrating evil in the world, NOT people who don't want to appear to support it.

  130. Lowes Palm Springs has consumer problems:
    We've been here 2 weeks decorating a 2 bedroom condo for rental.
    1. Company's computer system cannot handle customers who own multiple pieces of property but use a cell phone number: to wit - 6 appliances ordered for delivery to new condo went to one also owned at another address, in spite of multiple phone calls to confirm the address. Scheduling staff didn't read notes of delivery address. Scheduling staff called Minnesota home with messages and also unoccupied third home in Palm Springs.
    2. Bought 2 vanities and sinks but couldn't fit 60" one in SUV so left instructions that renter would pick up. Assured all would be well. Renter took 1 1/2 hrs. of fighting to get release of items. Finally had to call us.
    3. Staff in commercial sales area talked on phone to her mother while 3 customers waited to ring up sales. She screwed up our receipt. With a 12% unemployment rate in Palm Springs, we think management could find staff willing to wait on customers and NOT deal with personal business.
    4. Computer said 60" vanity was not in stock. We found 2 on shelves in high-up storage.
    5. Kohler sink bought had been returned item and an inferior sink in box. Had to take back and face many questions. Learned from an asst. mgr. that return staff not checking boxes to match what is on outside. Crooks are robbing this store of merchandise with this switching plan.
    6. Positive, helpful staff: George in appliances tried his best to get the orders filled and delivered. Craig at check out. Fernando (mgr) in plumbing excellent in the exchange and clarification of deliveries and mispackaged sink. Bill in plumbing was terrific in getting 4 toilets for us and setting them aside.
    We never have trouble getting items that we take with us. But, scheduling a delivery is an absolute nightmare. The computerized inventory system is NOT accurate and it's a shame.
    Finally, we called Lowes credit before leaving Minnesota to say we'd be in Palm Springs for 2 weeks outfitting a new condo. It made no difference. Our second charge was flagged and we were held up 30 minutes in line as we verified who we were. Credit manager on line said employee had registered our Mn absence incorrectly from our call.
    Our shopping experiences at Lowes in Maple Grove are superior experiences to what we're undergoing in Palm Springs. Friends are advising us to only go to Home Depot in Palm Springs.

  131. My daughter showed me the background on the "Lowe's issue." We decided not to get any of the items on our Christmas list that we would usually buy from Lowe's and instead traveled to the next town over to buy from a competitor. It's fine to pull advertising, but to pull advertising because of the religion of the people on this show offending one guy operating Florida Family Association? Shameful!! Also, I read where people who are on his mailing list that he says are "members" didn't even know they were on his list that was published. Another thing I learned was that many of the companies who this FFA/David Caton says pulled their advertising because of this being a "Muslim" show never did this. My daughter wrote all these companies and only two on the list of over sixty companies sided with FFA...the rest this guy lied about. Lowes can do what they wish and I will do what I wish: tell people not to buy there and why (freedom of religion which is a hallmark of the values in this country and our right and also that Lowes didn't respect a certain ethnic group of AMERICANS who happen to practice the Muslim religion). I agree with a previous poster: there are some posts on her posted by trolls and also people who are ignorant of and fearful of people who do not practice Christianity. I'm so embarrassed for these trolls.

  132. You know, I have read numerous posts on this thread regarding Lowe's pulling their advertising dollars from a TV show. Well to be frank, I am neither Muslim, nor an employee of Lowe's. What I am is a person who understands this is their right to do so. I also understand that it is everyone's right to shop where they feel like. That is the beauty of this country, we all have these rights.

    What I find funny is people feeling like there little purchases matter. None of us, including myself, will impact a company the size of Lowe's negatively. This is why they don't care that we take our buisness elsewhere. They also understand that the American consumer has ADD. There have also been a few who have "removed Lowe's from their investment portfolio", really you think that matters as well. I would think that unless you are the Berkshire Hathaway Group, they really don't care about that as well. It is our self important arrogance that amuses me, that some people feel that independently they matter. I am not even a drop in the pool that makes up Lowe's profit. I don't even spend enough per year to power their store for an hour electrically. I get the argument there is strength in numbers, as so pleasently displayed by the Occupy Wall Street, and affiliated movements. They got alot accomplished, wait no they didn't I forgot, just like I have forgotten them. Just like Lowe's has forgotten all of us. I think they use this forum to supply their own internal "Top 10 List" of stupid customer comments, hope I made it.

  135. I am a current employee of Lowe's at the Wilkesboro Corporate Office. My job is to speak to all employees on all levels of the company, and rarely do I hear (or SEE) an unhappy employee. When I walk into a Lowe's store for something I need, I leave my title (and badge) at work and am a customer. As a customer I am treated with the utmost respect, everyone is professional and quite helpful; This is the reason I even chose a career out of Lowe's. While in meetings the main topic is ALWAYS happiness of the employees and customers. We take unhappiness in the work place serious as well as affairs. If anyone is unhappy we want you to call in and let someone know, be persistent if you must be, but don't hold it in and wait until you are let go to leave a negative comment on a site. To this day the only negative comment I have is how slow our systems are as well as how old some of our equipment is. I am happy to say we are going through waves of replacing old equipment with new, faster equipment in order to ease the lives of our employees and quicken our customer's experience. so please, current employees use the numbers provided to you, we will help with whatever you need to the best of our abilities, former employees, I am sorry you are no longer with us, no matter the reason. But if you didn't speak up or try hard enough, let it go.

    1. Let me tell you something. I worked at Lowe's for 12 yrs and I was wrongly fired. Anytime an employee tries to go to corporate for help management finds a way to fire them. You need to take a visit to the Decatur, Alabama store where zone manager Brian Walker takes other employees to his house and parties with them or the store manager John Barksdale goes out drinking with other associates or the poison Brian Walker placed in the store to kill birds that were coming in from outside last spring, got caught by another employee and got away with it

  136. Re Account Number 819 2333 514072 9

    DISPUTE OF CHARGES
    DEMAND FOR ACCOUNTING
    15 USC sections 1692-16929

    THIRD REQUEST
    Gentlemen:

    I dispute the outstanding balance of $145.00 or any other amount on the above account.

    Pursuant to my rights under 15 USC sections 1692-16929, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, I am hereby demanding for the third time an accounting on the above account. Thus far you have refused and ignored my demands. I have been demanding this since October, 2011.

    The reasons are as follows. Early in 2011, I purchased a rug. The offer was for six months no payments or interest. The total sum was about $2,400. I went to the store in July, 2011 to ask about payoff. I was told I had until August. On August 23, 2011, I paid off the entire account balance of $1,900 in a Lowe’s Store. I asked to pay off the full balance. Lowes accepted that amount as a full and final payment to pay the entire account. I then had a zero balance. That is what Lowe’s told me. I made no additional purchases! Suddenly, in September, I was charged $85.00 when I had made no purchases. I have gone to your store to speak to customer services and spent lengthy periods of time on the phone attempting to find the origin of these charges. No one would help me. So I have unsuccessfully demanded an accounting of these sums, which I am entitled to by law, and which you refuse to give.

    I am an honest person and I pay my bills on time! If I wanted to cheat you, why wouldn’t I just refuse to pay the $2,200?!? Why would I pay over $2,200 and then refuse the $85.00?!? Do you thin I do not have $85.00, or that I would nt rather pay it than deal perpetually with you collections people? It is because this amount represents your fraud factor! I pay my bills honestly, but I will not exceed to fraudulent, corrupt and illegal charges, and that is exactly what Lowe’s is doing. I am accusing you of corrupt, fraudulent and predatorial misconduct. If honest people will not stand up to thievery then there will simply be more thieves like you.

    As of today, your ignorant collections people have started calling me at my job to harass me. This is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 USC 1692-1692p, for which I am entitled to $1000 per violation.

    It is clear to me that Lowe’s is a corrupt organization and feels that it cannot do business without deliberate fraud. The proof is the fact that you refuse to comply with your legal obligations to provide me with an accounting.

    I intend to post the details of this matter on the internet with a fraud warning against doing business with Lowe’s wherever you have internet advertising and with a warning that consumers not do business with you but rather do business with Home Depot or Kohl’s.

    For Lowes to pull their ads from the TV program All American Muslim because a racist, bigoted group requested they do so is outrageous! I am not Muslim but know many caring civic-minded Muslims who are a wonderful asset to our community. To have Lowes demonstrate the "UGLY" side of our country is so wrong. I will not be shopping at Lowes nor will many of my friends and family. Please, all of you who object to Lowes behavior regarding this event express your concerns through words and actions.

  139. I am also writing a formal, snail-mail letter to corporate offices, but wanted to add my position here, as well. We are remodeling and tend to find things at Lowes which we like better than the other stores. We were just about to buy (2) Kohler Cimarron one piece toilets which were just under $10 cheaper per item than Home Depot. However, die directly to Lowes pulling of their advertising because of an extremist Christian organization's threats, we thought it important to show support for both the American Muslim community and the moral principles we like to think our country is based on. It's a small gesture, but we bought the toilets at Home Depot, and will not be shopping at Lowes any longer. If and when Lowes reinstates its advertizing and admits it's error, please let us know.

  140. I just had new Pella windows unstalled. I dealt with Keith Troutman, my installers were Brett and Kevin Bailey. Madison, Alabama, Highway 72. I would just like to say that all these guys were great. Polite, professional and the job they did was outstanding! I was actually alittle sad when they were done and it was time to leave. We'll be back after the windows are paid off and you can be sure we will call Keith at Lowes. I understand that Brett and Kevin only install windows and doors, but if were possible for them to do the roof I would definately request them. You got some good ones there.

  141. Darryl and Paula BrownJanuary 28, 2012 at 7:52 AM

    We are extremely dissapointed in the service We've received over the past 5 months from the North Charleston, SC Lowes location. My wife and I decided 5 months ago to recarpet the family home and so we went down to the local Lowes location to cash purchase our carpet. Our customer service rep was very professional, knowledgeable and very efficient. Delivery of the carpet was somewhat slow but understandable due to the holidays. Installation was swift and well done!
    Once installed a 1-3 line defect was found in the Stainmaster carpet that had been installed that spanned the house and 6 rooms.
    A Lowes manager quickly came out to access the situation and to verify the defect was present whick is was.
    More carpet was ordered and another install completed only to determine that the 2nd installation was the wrong carpet period. So again a Lowes manager came out to verify the defect and reordered more carpet.
    The 3rd carpet comes in and it's the wrong carpet again! Now it's 5 months later our furniture is still in storage @ $400 per month so our storage tally is $2000. And still we don't have our carpet installed. Can someone please help!

    ----------------
    I'm an officer at a fortune 500 company, a decorated 100% disabled veteran and retired veteran. Also a longtime supporter of Lowes products and it's business model. All i ask is that someone help this family of four put our house back together. Our holiday season was ruined by this carpet blunder and our storage fees are growing by the minute. Please help!

  142. Why is it that the big wigs make all the decisions to carry a product for a while, and then when a customer needs additional items to operate the appliance, they are not available. When do you learn to appreciate the customer and realize that the customer is who makes your payday possible? Why buy any other product your store sells due to your cancellation of additional items the customer may need in the future to operate the item? Somebody there needs some customer relations workshops. This has finally finished my shopping with Lowe's. Sorry.

  143. I have been doing business with Lowes for many years (maybe 15) . We spend an average of $20,000 on paint and supplies as I am the president of a small painting company . Recently it has come to our attention that Lowe's is utilizing the services of a check approval company named Certegy . Despite having more than a significant balance in our account and no returned checks anywhere ever , our check for supplies that were needed immediately was turned down . I was informed that if I pay this company money they can make sure this doesn't happen in the future . What's the story Lowes ? You have just lost a lifelong patron and like a bad meal in a restaurant , I won't be back . Unless I hear somehow that you have dissasociated yourselves from these extortionists.

  144. As a person with disabilities I used to pay my bill over the phone with Lowes automated payment service. There was no charge if I used the automated system, which I did.

    Now, they removed that option and if I want to pay by phone I have to speak to a live representative and pay $14.95 fee. In this, the worst economy since The Great Depression. Lovely. Speaks volumes to Lowe's attitude towards their customer base and to those who struggle with disabilities.

    Lowes, like just about everyone else, wants customers to sign up online so they have access to massive personal data such as e-mail addresses and I do not want to participate in this. (I don't do social networking either)I do not use an online account because of the susceptibility for hacking and it is easier to make the call and pay over the phone.

    POLICY CHANGE TIMELINE AND IMPLEMENTATION:
    Last month (December 2011) I was able to make my payment over the phone for free with the automated system.

    As of January 2012, I was told Lowes (Or GE based on who you speak to) was no longer allowing that option.

    So I called the corporate office at 704-758-1000 and asked if it was Lowes who changed the policy or GE financial services and if they had control over their own corporate policy.

    I was rudely transferred to customer service (who cannot help on any policy issue) and called back and struggled to get a "corporate representative" who basically said "We can only take your name and document what you said at this point."

    Really? So Lowe's is a victim of GE financial services and has no control over who they do business with as per their customer financing?

    I am closing out my Lowe's account of almost 10 years because: I explained to numerous people I do not want an online account due to all of the online hacking and as a person with disabilities it is the easiest way to pay over the phone with the FREE automated service, their "corporate" response was too bad so sad.

    Almost every other bill I pay allows for the FREE automated pay by phone service BECAUSE they value their customers.

    Since Lowes told me over the phone it is "GE who did this" policy change I highly suggest that Lowes dump GE and establish a new business relationship with a financial arrangement that values the disability community and loyal customers as well.

    In the meantime, it is I who will "document and take under advisement" Lowes response to my needs as a customer with disabilities and in turn dump them for disgusting corporate indifference to we the customers.

    (Cutting up card as I type) I highly suggest people spread this information as GE and Lowes are culpable as "partners" together and if people dump Lowes UNTIL they make positive changes it can absolutely impact their "financial heath".

  145. Wow, what I have been reading here sheds a very bad light on this company. I have some Qualms about their store in Glen-Burnie Maryland myself, how they are treating their valued employees. Just because the economy is at its lowest and they should be cutting overhead costs by cutting Store hours ( who needs nails at 6 a.m.) instead they give ALL of their employees bad reviews and cut their bonuses, which makes for very low moral, which in turn the customer gets to feel. I cant believe that a whole store has nothing but bad employees. Upper management should take a good look at their store managers and review them. Here in Martinsburg W.V. the Lowes has become more of a dump and that might be a reflection of the moral of their employees which I see happening in the future at their Glen-Burnie store. I myself having worked in Management always went by the motto: "treat your employees well and they treat you well". All that I have heard and read made me decide not to shop there anymore. Their actions is really going to hurt their business and I hope more people will find another hardware store to shop at. By the way I am retired and not a Lowes employee.

  146. Dear Lowes,

    We have a business account for my husbands business since 2009. I am in the military. We have always received the military discount and been able to charge the bill to the account. Now my husband was told he can no longer get the military discount and charge to the account. When I called the store manager in Shepherdsville, KY I was told that is right the rules have changed. No notification was sent out. Changes like this has been occurring with this store off and on for the past year. Every time we go in we get told a different story. If you have that many changes then notification should have went out. Your lack of responsibility to your regular customers will cost you in the long run. I have a co-worker who shops at home depot. They are allowed to use the discount and charge to their account. I believe that is where our business needs to go and we will refer any and everyone we know in that direction. You have just lost a major account. Hope you can afford it. By the looks of your corporate office you at least think you can.

They actually act like they care and when the employees get treated good they end up giving better customer service which is why Home Depot is number 1 and Lowe's is number 2. I'll never step foot inside a lowe's store again. Most of there management team abuses there employees and pick on certain people that work hard and do there job. There are many Good hard working people who have worked for Lowe's many years have been unfairly let go or fired. This will probably never happen, but Lowe's is a total disgrace and there stores should be shut down.

    2. And anytime an employee goes to the store manager or to corporate to report abuse by management the store always retaliates and finds a reason to fire them.

  148. I recently purchased a $1000 swing set from Lowes and the wind toppled it over before we could get finished. Swing and Slide and Lowes won't refund our money and have agreeded only to replace parts broken. If and when this happens and its installed and topples with my grandchrildren while playing on it I will have no problem holding Lowes and Swing and Slide responsible. I have tried everything I could to resolve this delima.
    I would not recommend anyone to buy this cheap piece of junk, the wood is so thin that the screws won't hold it together and is one of the cheapest things I have ever gotten.
    Over the last year I have spent over $20,000 at Lowes and at this point will not spent another dime with and will cut my lowes credit card up.
    I bought this in Middleburg, Fl. Hopefully management at Lowes will look at the junk they are buying from China and that is exactly what these swing sets are.

  151. Lowes has changed there verbage to now include any contractor or bulk pricing will be considered by Lowes as a discounted item that will not be discounted again with a coupon. But that discounted amount is actually not discounted but a price point for buying multiples. Which would mean no discounts on wire since this is a foot price a 250 or 1000 ft wire is prepackaged and has a set price so does a multi back or light bulbs, light cans, a gallon of paint versus a five gallon. This is lowes way and will be there demise as they have already felt the effects of economy they will now feel there own backlash. There managerial thinking is it is up to the customer to decide how to spend there money. It would be foolish for lowes to think that customers are spend thrifty and not frugile. It would also be foolish for lowes to believe that these new twisted rules and play on verbeage will not have a huge impact on there future to include sales and repetitive customer trust. Lowes get ready to close more stores!

    1. Store 1176 in Decatur, Alabama has many rotten apples. In the spring of last year zone manager Brian Walker was caught by another employee placing poison in certain areas of the store to kill birds that were flying inside from the garden center and pecking at the bags of bird seed. The store was almost shut down but yet that rotten apple who's buddy buddy with the store manager still has his job. Also other employee's there that are friends with Brian get to walk around the store on the clock with there vests off. Everyone should know about things like this that go on in certain Lowe's stores and I continue to document things that are going on at the Decatur, Alabama store.

    3. @ anonymous Awe :-( that's terrible! He shouldn't be placing poison any where in the store not just for killing nature but god forbid a kid got a hold of it! That's so dangerous! Sad to say that none of what you write is astonishing! I'm just surprised that it's still going on not only on the west coast but the east coast as well. I'm sorry that you have to work there witnessing such misery! @ anonymous lowe's likes creating a hostile environment. I wouldn't blame it on lowe's, I would blame it on lack of policy being enforced allowing such individual's to carry on in such fashion & manner. I would also blame it on lack of knowledge on corporate. I mean this in a nice way! They're a bunch of high class business men with degree's,their job is to crunch numbers they have probably never worked a day of retail in their life even if they did they have no clue! When they come in all the dirt & trash is hidden & concealed to perfection thanks to all the kiss asses! I do hope though that they read all the comments go under cover in their store's & straightened it all out! Many many blessings to all of you that have to live it day in & day out!

    I worked for Lowes for seven years and though I decided to change careers, I have nothing but positive feelings for this company.

    It is certainly true that corporations are made of people. As a supervisor at Lowes I tried to never forget that to my employees, I was Lowes. In any group there will always be individuals that are rude, petty, uninformed, etc. But I promise you that the number of great employees far exceeds the bad at Lowes.

    1. At the Lowe's store I worked at the store manager and 2 or 3 other managers got away with murder while many of the hourly associates got treated horrible and in many situations got thrown under the bus for things that management did wrong. The harassment and bullying that I experienced was out of control and any time an employee would try to go to HR or corporate Lowe's would retaliate and find a reason to fire them. I've even seen management make up things to try to get rid of certain employees just because they didn't like them for whatever reason. Even if it's just a handfull of store like this corporate should still not let things like this go on, and most of the managers that mistreat there employees get away with it because they have high friends in the corporate office. I now work at the Home Depot and it is so so much better!!! There's no comparison. Lowe's is a terrible company to work for and has gotten much worse over the years.

  155. Damn! lowe's WAKE UP!!! I went into one of your store's yesterday! It was like DEATH! The music was turned down low & I had to giggle, since it was the same tunes playing 3yrs ago, when I walked out of your store's. Bump up the music with a mixture of tunes. #2) Beautiful fountain displays, except some were NOT working! No working fountains no sales! #3)Prices too high! With this failing economy home depot is no longer your competitor walmart is! One thing walmart does that you do not! Is incorporate everything in their displays to sell the buyer! Example: Garden is now seasonal! Put the gazebo, patio furniture, plants, grill, fountain & fire pit all in one! You want the customer to walk into your store's,see the display's & be sold! Create your displays as if it were in your own home or backyard! #3)Create a wonderful incentive program for credit! The average american household is $90,000 in debt! Everyone is trying to keep up with the jones! With the combination of new displays/incentive credit program/lowered prices = boost of sales! #4)You need to create a promotional program! Kholes does it every couple of month's, with their gift card program. Every x amount of dollars a customer spends they receive a free gift card! What do ppl like ? FREE!!! #5) Get with the program! youtube is a gr8 source for advertisement & for endorsing your product! Find the average joe on there who has a million plus view's for building something simple! Give him free gift cards/tool's. Next video he makes mentioning your co on his site bam! Ppl see he made it with a product from lowe's, they will shop @ your store's or buy the gift cards! This is 2012 ppl are going green & solar! Where are your solar panel kits, marine batteries, camping equipment, survival equipment, composting toilets ? You have a nice display of solar lights but hidden in an aisle & not enough of them. Where are your food courts ? Costco, walmart rack up! Ppl like to go into stores to be lazy & relax that includes sitting down & eating! Last but not least, how come you don't have a store in yucca valley ca ? Yeah, it's risky! but #1) land is cheap! #2) home depot is the only one there racking up your $$$.

  156. I went to your store to order 5 lights, a ceiling fan with light, and a few other lights and your workers couldn't find the information even thought I brought in the item numbers off your pages. so left with out making the order. No one cares that works there or knows about the products that you carry? that is if you can find anyone on the floor or at the desk. I tried to call you today numerous times each call on hold for up to 30 mins each time with no one ever coming on! I don't think you have anyone that works the phones. you must not want to sell anything! Total and thoroughly disgusted! what a huge waste of my time. Really how do you stay in business! I will go back to home depot! and order from them sadly rebuilding a house and you could of made a good deal off the items I need. Sincerely fed up!

  157. p.s. Lowe's don't forget to be extra nice to your employee's & vendors! You just never know who is prepping for your walks or who is extensively trained in product knowledge, producing sales to your customers!

  158. Lowe's did me wrong thus far!!!!!!!!!!
    I bought brand new Kraftmaid semi custom cabinets for my kitchen $20,000.00 PAID IN FULL, and when they sent out the installer he messed it up bad!
    1. He made uneven cuts in on the pantry, and other places
    2. He made a very unprofessional cross cut on the pantry cabinet (which that one cabinet is over 1,000.00 alone)
    3. He Cracked the desk drawer top and tried to hide it and was possibly going to install it since he didn't let me know that he was going to need to replace it.
    4. He was hitting the wood around the screws on the cabinets with the drill bit when he screws in the screws.
    5. after looking at all this I noticed that the gaps between the doors and drawers on the cabinets were all different and when I asked the installer he tried to tell me it would be more money for him to make them all the same. So I told the installer I WAS NOT GOING TO PAY MORE MONEY JUST TO GET THE JOB DONE RIGHT. So the installer left and has yet to come back.
    6. The Kraftmaid representative did not show up on his scheduled appointment that I made with Kraftmaid to come out and see how I was being treated.
    7. no one from lowes has addressed the problems I am having.

    I chose lowes in the first place because the sales rep was helpful. Now I am not sure where to go I have 6 sloppy cabinets installed half way with broken parts and a ton of cabinets unopened in my garage... My whole house is in disorder and it is just upsetting that they would allow this to remain like this for a week now. I am very dissatisfied and feel that Lowe's and swindled me with deceptive trade practices! I need someone to step up to the plate and help a good customer out.
    Please let me know what I can do!
    One upset customer!
