Do not any
Ask for assistance!
No, I didn't leave out "open" and that's how packages was spelled. What
puzzled me was how Mr. Spelling Bee got assistance even close!
Maybe by the time they get a regional manager involved, they just
might, Just Might get it right.
I had the misfortune of having to go in one today with a friend that
had a HD return credit card and he needed to spend the $10 bucks
before the time ran out on the card. We left a Lowe's where there
must have been around 200 vehicles on the lot plus lots of commercial
account side traffic and on to HD where I actually counted 22 cars and
one pickup on their lot. My friend found an item that cost a little
over the $10 on the card and went to the checkout. The item, a pack
of masonry bits, did not have a bar code on them and the checkout girl
(associate) had no idea what to do. After going through 3 people
(associates) and backing up a line at the only open checkout of 5
people (they never opened up any more checkouts????), the store
manager finally got involved and he didn't know what to do either so
he just took the card and said lets call it even to my friend.
On the way out we passed a man that had just bought a new John Deere
riding mower (the one that came in the only pickup on the lot). A HD
employee (associate) had cranked up the mower and was getting ready to
pull it onto the trailer attached to the pickup when he jerked the
whole line of mowers on display sideways. He had neglected to unchain
the purchased mower from the display line of mowers it was chained to!
I felt lucky to get away alive.
I'm in Phoenix and live close to a Lowe's and a Home Depot, and the HD
is a lot better The Lowe's employees are hard to find and usually
clueless, and it took three of them to locate the air conditioners --
in July. OTOH when I went to HD for a tiny electrical part, someone in
the garden dept. knew exactly where it was located at the other end of
the store, including the elevation. This Lowe's also makes a lot of
pricing mistakes, the last time for a paint stirrer, a product they

I guess it is area dependant as to which ones are better. My
experience with HD is only at 2 stores which just happen to both be
clueless aberrations compared to the 4 Lowe's stores I am familiar
with. On the other hand, my daughter's husband thinks HD in their
city of Orlando is the best.
But then again, I think he's a twit (grin)...... Kidding.... He's a
great guy and a knowledgeable contractor.
I really didn't pay any attention to his card or know the specific
details as to why he got a card instead of his money back during the
return MM so I can't say. All I know is that he said there was a time
limit to use it before it expired. Actually I have never been given
one of those cards from Lowe's and I don't do business with HD so I
sure would never get one of their's so I don't really know the
specifics on them. However, I do know that I have done some returns
to Lowe's without a receipt and got my cash back but they know me
there and I do a ton of business with them yearly so they might just
be letting me slide on the card thing.
