Memorial Day is Monday, May 30th. And for those of us living today, the men and women who fought for our country are our vivid connections to Memorial Day.  So many of us would not be here today,  if not for the fate that allowed our fathers and grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers, to survive a war.

While we shop at Lowes, go to BBQ’s, picnics and beaches we must keep up the tradition of pride in service to the United States of America and remember all those who had fallen. Let none of us ever forget what Memorial Day really is about. Memorial Day continues to represent the day to remember the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in service to their country during war so we may live in peace.

Along with honoring the fallen military heroes this weekend with parades and picnics, many will head out for the sales offered to get their outside living spaces ready for summer. This weekend serves as the unofficial start of summer.  As the start of grilling season, however, Memorial Day weekend comes with expectations.

Sure, take a look at Sears, Home Depot and Menards. They will have some items you cant find at Lowes. Why would I put Home Depot, Sears and Menards promotions on my site?  When it comes to home improvement, with all things being equal,  having the lowest price doesn’t mean you are getting the best value.  For me, the distinguishing factor has to be customer service.  I am not going to convince you to shop Lowes simply because I work at there.

All these stores are successful and fiercely competitive making it hard to pick a favorite based on price alone. Although prices at Home Depot and Lowe’s sometimes fluctuate, they’re often exactly the same, and the differences are slight.

Remember, some brands are store specific.  For example, if you want a Kenmore refrigerator or dishwasher, you’re only going to find that at Sears.

In the end, 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.

Each and every year one of the most popular weekends to save at Lowes is during Memorial Day weekend. There is a good reason for this. Lowes is one of the largest home improvement stores in the United States and many people are looking for appliances, lawn mowers, tools, home decor and gardening items.

With the warmer months ahead of us we will be spending much more time outdoors.  You can really start to feel summer in the air! Parades, barbecues and celebrations happening all weekend long.

For many Americans, the central event is attending one of the thousands of parades held on Memorial Day in large and small cities all over the country. Most of these feature marching bands and military theme with the National Guard and other servicemen participating along with veterans and military vehicles from various wars.  Memorial Day allows us to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom.

It is our opportunity to stop and give thanks for the many who have died protecting that freedom.
