To consider Lowe's you have to look at both Home Depot and OSH. In my mind, HD focuses on those who are building something new or significant while OSH focuses on living in an existing space and doing minor repairs or improvements. Lowe's has found a spot just between HD and OSH. Lowe's is large like HD (bigger than any OSH I know) and yet has a nice balance of product filling the needs of both HD and OSH customers. At Lowe's I can buy a table lamp and all of the electrical stuff you could need. Lowe's is the closest to one-stop shopping for a typical home owner.
The store is clean, well organized and signed, a vast selection of stuff and the right number of people running around to help you. All-in-all, yep, I am a fan.
