Lowe’s has been helping customers improve the places they call home since it was founded in 1946.
Traded on the New York Stock Exchange (LOW) since 1961, Lowe’s has grown from a small hardware store to a home improvement company providing customers inspiration and support whenever and wherever they shop. Whether our customers shop in store, online, by phone, or at their home or place of business with a Lowe’s employee, Lowe’s is ready to help.
Lowe’s retail customers include individual homeowners and renters who complete a wide array of projects from do-it-yourself (DIY) to do-it-for-me (DIFM). Lowe’s professional customers represent approximately 30 percent of total sales and consist of two broad categories; construction and trade, and maintenance, repair and operations.
Through charitable contributions, volunteerism, scholarships and local partnerships, we have been investing in the communities we serve for over 65 years. Lowe's is proud to partner with OMNIA Partners to offer nonprofit organizations a variety of products and services on a competitively solicited and publicly awarded cooperative contract. We want to make the communities around us much stronger and more resilient, based on the premise that when our communities and people are strong, we are strong. We demonstrate our focus on the critical needs affecting our associates, communities and industry by supporting safe, affordable housing initiatives as well as skilled trade education.
