Lowe's was founded in 1946, primarily selling dry goods, snuff, groceries and various other items. Later it made a move into selling hardware items and building materials. Since then, it has grown to one of the largest hardware and paint stores in the nation. Lowe's is known for its large variety of hardware appliances in a very neat, well-organized and well lit environment. There are various sections of the store dedicated to the category it sells, such as a paint section, where there is a large variety of paints and even a color matching system to help find the color that is wanted for a home or anywhere else. The staff here is very well informed, and can assist customers in purchasing anything needed, and giving helpful advice as well.
