Both chains, but Lowes in particular, choose sites so as to best stifle
Lowes likes to site across the street from the 84-lumber chain.
I worked for LLOYD LUMBER for awhile, and am very glad those nitwits
didn't make the jump from lumber-yard to home-improvement-center. Had
they stayed a contractors lumber yard, though, they may have stayed in
Lowesers and Home Despot, naw, those are terms of endearment!
Wouldn't want to do without the convenient access or selection, but I
go to a smaller outfit whenever feasible. I would hate to have big
chains be the only choice. That happened with Mal-Wart, and I don't
think the world's a better place because of it.
