From a consumer perspective, Lowes is failing. I pay cash at the checkout. BUT, if I use their credit card I get a 5% discount. I understand the motivation of Lowes to get more than 5% back on credit card interest fees, but I personally view this as a 5% penalty for cash. In Minnesota, Lowes is being avoided because of this penalty policy. HD or Menards gets our business.
Lowes in Riverdale Ga opened about 5 years ago. The employee"s were told in a store meeting at 8:45 Sunday night not to come to work on Monday,the store was closing. No effort to work them into other stores just your layed off.
