Yes, I put Home Depot, Walmart, Best Buy, Sears and Menards promotions on my site too. If your a smart shopper, you go there and compare prices already. So do I. With all things being equal, most customers tend to go with the lowest price. However, having the lowest price doesn’t mean you are getting the best value.
Why do you shop at your favorite supermarket? They are probably friendly, courteous and helpful. You may think supermarkets are all about price but if that were true we would all be in the Dollar Store buying markdowns and clearance potato chips. Well, I buy my groceries at Walmart. And my last microwave? Whoops, bought it at Sears. If I can buy it at Lowes, I generally do. But I will not pass up a great deal or a must have brand at the competition simply because I work at Lowes.
It comes down to customer service. I will avoid one store with poor service and drive a few miles to another one to spend my money. I can’t convince you to shop Lowe’s over Home Depot simply because I work at Lowes. Both stores are highly successful and fiercely competitive making it hard to pick a favorite based on price alone. Prices at Home Depot and Lowe’s sometimes fluctuate, but they’re often the same. The overall experience you get for your money will often return you to Lowe’s for the best product selection, customer service and value for your hard earned dollars.
Labor Day means fall is just around the corner. The end of summer is a time to get out and enjoy those last few moments of fun in the sun. So while you have those last few backyard bbq’s and trip to the beach, it’s important to set aside time for repair projects in and around the house this fall. September and October are great times to take care of that leaky roof, clean the gutters, repair or replace drafty windows, and clean or water seal the deck. If you don’t get to them now, you could end up with a bigger problem when winter sets in.
