I’m not a big DIYer or really handy around the house, but there are some things I buy at home improvement stores.
From where we live, it’s almost exactly the same driving time to a Home Depot and a Lowe’s.
The Lowe’s seems a little newer and a little more upscale. For most things we’d buy, either one would do (except for CFLs, where Home Depot’s house brand is simply superior).
But now it’s easier
Lowe’s apparently caved to a one-person “Family” organization–with these organizations, “Family” almost always belongs in scare quotes–that seems to regard American Muslims as probable terrorists.
Home Depot still advertises on the same show that Lowe’s dropped.
Makes it easy for me to go to Home Depot.
