Two days later they told me it was a discontinued item and no longer available but they had a comparable unit for $660 and change. Interestingly the same unit is available at a number of stores at the $608.00 price. It is still listed on the Lowes Norfolk website at $125.70 (see link below). I wrote them and got the typical corporate form letter reply. I went to HD and bought my compressor, a new front door and a new garage door and am planning a kitchen remodel. I won't be shopping at Lowes anymore.

    It's a safe bet to assume that if they're asking you for something, they're asking you for the bathroom. Or your sister.

    So when they are making inquiry, ask them the following: Donde esta el bano?

    Pronounce: Don-day eh-stah el bon-yo? The o in Don is a long o. Sort of.

    You racist bastard, you. Expecting people coming to live in this country to speak English. The very idea.

    They were bad and then they got good, a new manager and they hired employees.
    Now it seems like they've back slid. Still not as bad as it was, it's just harder to find help in the aisles.
    Probably need to hire more people could either be the business can't support it or they can't get the people.

    You out to put that on Twitter @Lowes and see if they reply.

    Hard to find help? I can't get them to leave me alone.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Hmm..mebbe it was Home Depot? ;-)

    Scheduling has been a bugaboo for quite a while, as has having enough qualified folks to be on the floor helping customers.

    Orange there, THOUGH, Lowe's did have a Blue Vest program for a couple of years to make management easier for customers to find.

    I'd like to see the customers agitate for the reinstatement of that program.
    The managers did not like it, made them easier targets for customers with valid complaints.
    Take care - Steven

    That is the honest truth. The only reason we moved from Calvert to Montgomery was for love of family. Montgomery County is like living in a foreign country. I, actually, can speak Spanish after all those years of learning it in school. It is all the other languages I hear that hurt my ears. You do what you have to do. And, yes, if one is privileged to live here, learn English. Period.
    God bless, America.

    Call ahead next time and ask for Steven in Hardware.
    If I'm there, I'll try to see that things go better.
    Steven has always been very helpful when I have been unsure of what to get! He is an asset to Lowes!
