Lowes Breaks Ground in DC

A reader writes in with news that the home improvement store Lowes has broken ground at Dakota Crossing. This is a bit outside of our area (it's near the Costco), but I figured it might be of interest to many readers.



It looks like they are breaking ground for the Lowe’s at The Shops at Dakota Crossing. They’ve actually made quite a bit of headway, as the ground has been completely leveled, and it was a bit bumpy and bushy a month ago. You can see the Costco in the background. There were lots of trucks and large crane type machines around, as well as about 20 hardhats on a lunch break (I was obviously running during my break)

Anyway, thought I’d share. This will be the first Lowe’s in DC and the second big box home improvements store.

BTW, expect news coming very soon on the hardware store coming to Trinidad later this fall.

More competition between hardware stores, the better. Bring on the sales tax revenue (and hopefully lower prices and better service from increased competition)

Here's to hoping their customer service will be better than Home Depot's on RI ave. I am constantly amazed how some of their employees remain employed at that location.

In defense of Home Depot, I had to go there before work today and two employees helped me out with *way* more enthusiasm than I've ever had at 6AM. Ha.

it will make it a lot easier to get out of the Costco and will add a lot of quality to the home center scene.

If you met the manager there, you would understand why. He's the one who has his Mercedes parked in the fire lane in front of the loading area outside the Pro desk everyday. How's that for pride in ownership?

They were rookies or high. They will be embittered and ignorant in no time.

I can't encourage Vandalism, but where I grew up,
that POS would be keyed in a heartbeat.
