look at the board members-lowes has board memebers on wmt board and vs versus.wmt is closing out all the tools,most paint products and lowes is vamping up for this. what would the name change be or would wmt just be a parent company of lowes. lots of meetings about this have been happening over the last 6 months
This sounds silly. The only supporting fact that I could provide is that they seem to be phasing out Cabot Paint. The guy at the store said it was a management decision that surprised them. It is a tremendous product! If LOW is phasing that out to go with the crap brands ---- well that could be a sign of WMT.
I will gladly eat some crow if this is bought out -- I own a bunch.
Walmart and Lowes do share some of the same resources like researching real estate for Lowes store locations. Notice how you will usually see a Lowes very close to a Wal-mart? However, this has been an off and on rumor since the early 90's.
