Completely agree they've dssappointed me for last time. I assume they were trying to replicate craftsman with warranty and innovative tools. The quality is terrible and warranty tough to neotiate.

Their side cutting pliers can't even cut tie wire!!! I'm on the phone with them know because their chinese workbench I bought has a sheet metal piece that is stamped wrong.

AFter 30 min knowbody will answer the f#$kin phone! Craftsman sucks now too that they went to china. So for me Klein, and ebay for New old stock craftsman tools that are made in the usa. And even klein has a bunch of china junk, however screwdrivers etc are still made in the USA.

I would be so embarrassed to have tool box full of kobalt tools. Most of it looks like a cavemen's tools

As working multiple departments in lowes anytime I have worked delivery several times and anytime we have delivered an appliance we have tested the product in front of the customer and showers them how it works. Anytime a customer is not happy lowes will gladly take the appliance back and if and dent ot or major scratching is discovered the very first the offered to the cutsomer is either a discount or offer to take the appliance back another. Your experience is based upon a lie and you can't even spell Lowes

I'm just wondering why you would have a new refrigerator delivered on Christmas eve. Your old one obviously worked or no one would have bought it.

What did you do with the food that was in it as it was gone when the new one arrived? Once you get a new one it takes time for it to cool down.

Poor planing on your part. If it had been me buying a damaged refrigerator I would have had them plug it in and show me it ran before I bought it.

Lowes offers no help

We bought all new stainless steel kitchen appliances from Lowes in May of this year. The first part of November the dishwasher quit working. Lowes sent a company out to repair it. We washed one load of dishes and it quit again. Two weeks later the technician comes out again and replaces the motor. The next day we go to load the dishwasher and it doesn't work again. A different technician comes out again and found that the new motor is bad. It will be another two weeks before the next motor comes in and they can replace it. I no longer want this dishwasher. I called Lowes to see if I could get a different brand. I know I will have to pay something, I was just thinking that Lowes should give me some sort of a credit. Lowes will not do anything. They will not even let us use a loaner until ours is fixed. It has been almost two months since we have had a dishwasher. I am upset that we bought an $800 dishwasher that doesn't work and Lowes will not even try to make us happy with a loaner. If anyone knows what I can do, please let me know. We will still be without a dishwasher for at least two more weeks.

After attempts at repairing an appliance the manufacturer is supposed to give you an RA number (return authorization) which will allow you to return the appliance to the store for refund or exchange for another. meanwhile... go old school and wash your dishes yourself.

I would try calling Lowe's customer care. I know someone who went through a similar issue with a washing machine and lets just say the outcome was not desirable he ended up returning it after 3 months without a working washer and then bought one at sears across the street.

Why....?? That's an excellent name!!

The reason is because everybody feels entitled. If I spend money with you, I shouldn't have to take the proper actions to get the problem resolved. I should just *** and you should bend over and take it.

The fact that the managers are held accountable for the store profit doesn't matter to the *** wipes that shop there. They want immediate resolutions instead of working the proper channels....I'm just doing my job, protecting retail associates!!

Why does everyone blame the store they bought the appliance from. You should be upset with the manufacturer of the product, they are the ones that made it and they are the ones responsible for the warranty on the item. QUIT BLAMING THE WRONG PEOPLE!!!!!!

Lowes in Hopkins, Minnesota - Valspar at Lowe's = Great Service

Just bought some Valspar paint at Lowe's. Fantastic paint (great coverage) and amazimg service at Lowe's. I have shpped at other paint stores and retailers before, but never seen the broad selection of colors I did at the Valspar rack. The Lowe's associate helped me find the right sheen type and tools for my project, all with a smile. Once I got home and used the paint, I was thrilled with the outcome. The paint had no odor, and it went on with ease while covering the previous color in only one coat. Well done Valspar. You have a loyal customer for life.

Lowes in Sheffield, Iowa - Misunderstood what I asked for on the phone

Call Albert Lea store and asked if they had white christmas trees, I was told by some one in the Tool Dept, Oh yes, I am looking at them come on up. We drove 70 miles to look at white christmas trees and found out they never had white trees at all. We ended up buying a green tree made by GE (Just Cut pre-lit) tree,it was the last one and had no box, the information on the tree said it had a 3 year limited warranty and we have no warranty card to send in. Plus the top of the tree is not strong enough to support any tree topper, so I spend additional $10.00 to have a large red ribbon made to finish it off. I could not believe that beautiful tree had to way to support our lighted star, angel or anything. The poll goes from bottom to top and is atleast one and a half inches around. Nice sturdy tree, but still nothing to support a tree topper. Please pass this on to GE. The manager at the Albert Lea store was very nice. But just want to know how we get the warranty card and why GE has no contact information with the tree. Thank You

Really..YOU make the choices ...EVERY choice and decision in buy ing this tree but now you want to blame EVERYONE ELSE for YOUR decision making? You have no "cause and affect" in your thinking.

You need mental health, at least. Im sure your a real treat to be around with your thinking the way it is.

Lowes in Marietta, Georgia - Lowe's Home Improvement

I hired Lowe's to remodel a small master bath, and to my surprise this project was well over their head(Not capable of doing the job), signed final agreement in August and as of today (Dec. 20th) the bathroom is still not complete...they did not have any plumbing or electrical to do, four weeks to get a shower door, everyone passes the problems on to someone else, promised alot of things they did not deliver, such as project would be closely monitored (which did not happen until I started getting ugly) ....Just one word "HORRIBLE"!!!! Look elsewhere if you can....

Pissed off at Lowes

Today, Sunday 12/16/2012, my husband and I were shopping at Lowes in Gautier MS. I was RUDELY ordered out of the store by "one of many" store manager. Reason being, my 12 lbs Yorkie-poo! He was in the cart sitting very calmly on his pillow, not barking, but being a very good boy. We have been taking him to Lowes for 7 years and NEVER has anyone stated that dogs were not allowed. This manager spoke to me in matter that I will not tolerate. He is obviously a women and dog hater. His mannerism leads me to believe he's on a "power trip" with the manager's title! I fully intend to report him to Lowes headquarters. Apparently Lowes is TO BIG TO FAIL if their willing to lose customers over this ***!! Home Depot will be getting all my business in the future.

Did you happen to notice the large "Service Dogs Allowed" sign on the front door? Why do you think those rules apply to everyone except you? You're in the wrong, don't blame other people for that.....

as a former employee of lowe's, i know it's against policy for any animals to be in the store beyond assistance animals.

also, as a former employee of lowe's, i have to ask - WHY THE *** DO YOU PEOPLE BRING YOUR DOGS INTO A HARDWARE STORE FULL OF POWER TOOLS, CHEMICALS, AND CHILDREN?!

i mean seriously, what goes into that thought process? i was in arizona at the time and i'd get an earfull of "HEY, it's 200 degrees in a car right now!" and it took every fiber of my being to not ask "THEN WHY THE *** ARE YOU TAKING THEM FOR A CAR RIDE?!"

I work at a Lowes in Texas. I see as many dogs in my store as people.

Seriously. I dont bring my pets to the store with me. I will never bring my fish to Walmart, I will never bring my cat to Whataburger. Why do people bring dogs to Lowes?

All *** day long...all laid out in the shopping carts like babies.

I *** hate people that do this and I usually wont offer them help. ***, LEAVE YOUR DOGS AT HOME!

I like dogs too, but Lowes is not a place to bring your pets. We had an incident where a shoppers dog bit a 6 year old as she walked past.

The girl was not trying to pet it.

She was just walking by the cart. Well now that shopper is facing a large lawsuit, and the shopper is hoping Lowes backs her up which they will not.

Its the policy. Get over yourself.

Im guessing that he probably doesn't hate dogs or woman.....just ignorance.

Just because you have been speeding down a road for 5 years and have not got caught doesn't change the speed limit.

Get over it. Leave the dog at home like most people do.

That thing they call a shopping cart is NOT a stroller for your dog, in fact, it just may be the next place I sit my toddler down in, so YAY for the Lowes manager, new or old, for abiding the Lowes policies. Take your dog to Petsmart.

This coming from a mother and a dog lover.

Most retail places only allow Assistance Dogs in their stores. You're very foolish thinking you can bring your dog anywhere you want.

In most states dogs are banned from Parks, unless it's specifically a dog park. I voted for FUNNY! You're exactly the type of person I do not want to see when I'm working.

You think the world owes you everything and that you can act however you want and do whatever you want. Then when told NO you throw a hissy fit.

Lowes in Anaheim, California - Lowe's Warranty Service is HORRIBLE!

I bought a brand new washer and dryer from Lowes AND purchased their warranty service. What a nightmare! They hired some third rate contractor to come when after only 2 months my washer started acting funny. This guy shows up in a beat up Honda Accord with a tool belt on-and cant fix it-GO FIGURE! THEN-they say 3-5 business days for a part, I call after 3 business days of not hearing from them and they say another 7-10 business days. I called Lowe's to complain and all they said was "we can put in a request to expedite the part order-it may or may not get granted-and that request will take 2-3 business days. So, here I am with a almost new washer-a warranty service from Lowes purchased-and I have to do without a washer for 2 weeks???? Ridiculous! Don't waste your money or time-you would be better off to get someone to fix a non-warrantied machine off of Craigslist!

If the washer is only 2 months old it is the manufacturer of the appliance that is providing the warranty service. You should be upset with them, not Lowes.

Most manufacturers contract with local repair shops to do their warranty work.

GE is the only appliance manufacturer that has their own network of factory repair shops. Unfortunately most people don't take the time to find out who will be doing the service work if their appliance should need repair when they are making the purchase.

@check your warranty

Wrong! Lowes sells the products and sells the warrantees!

They are responsible for the products and protecting their customers from problems like this! Have you ever read the receipt from a major appliance from Lowe's? It says that a "factory certified repairman" will service their appliances.

So don't give that ***! Lowes is so confident of their repair people, they better start standing behind their warrantees and making sure the repair people are confident!

Lowes in Ashburn, Virginia - Most ATROCIOUS Customer Service Experience EVER!

The most atrocious customer service I have EVER experienced! Every associate I spoke with was completely rude. I had placed on online order, so I decided to just pick it up and never come back again. To top it all off, as I walked through the back entrance near the lumber section, a female associate (≈5'6" Latina, Brunette, no glasses; working the lumber section's register @ 4:30PM~5:30PM TUE 12/04/2012) stopped me and asked if I had picked-up my order (a Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig) from the front desk. I said "yes, why?" She took the jig from me and picked up a phone and directly called and questioned VERY RUDELY while in my face if someone had picked-up the order from the front desk. When verified, she didn't apologize or say ANYTHING, she dropped the jig back onto the counter and went back to doing nothing and pretending I wasn't there. And no, I did not dress or look shady, I just came from work in fact, and did nothing to merit the treatment (I'm Asian, so you can't even pull the discrimination card). Thanks to this experience, I will make sure to never, EVER return to ANY Lowe's location ever again, and I will advise every single friend, relative, and business associate to avoid all Lowe's stores. A company that will hire and retain employees like these obviously does not care about their customer service at all, and deserves no business from anyone with any dignity.

They're supposed to validate every purchase; she was merely doing her job. And, yes, it does look shady when someone is just walking out the door with an item.

All of the adjectives and adverbs you used in this post are merely reflections of your own anger at a very minor inconvenience and your own sense of entitlement.

LOWES Farmingdale NY

Sent this to Lowes and Lowes Corporate. Lets see if a get a response...EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED. Lost a great portion of my home in Island Park NY to the flood/hurricane Sandy. Needed a washer/dryer. Went to Farmingdale Black Friday. Nothing I picked was in stock. Was able to get washer and 2 pedestals from the Bayshore store ( on the phone while in Farmingdale location) dryer gas set up and warrantys purchased from Farmingdale. Delivery was today 12/4/12. Washer and pedastals came without a problem. Delivery manager from Farmingdale called 5 hrs before delivery to tell me my new dryer was damaged. He would have an associate call to arrange for another dryer/delivery date. No call after 3 hrs so I called. She told me none in stock she will refund me. Unacceptable! I bought a set and that's what I want. She told me Garden City store had one but she couldn't call because she "would be on hold forever" and didn't have time she will call me back. No call back 4 hrs later. Wife calls to the store manager at 5pm. She intimidates yells and insults my wife by putting the phone DOWN while my wife is talking. Will not accept responsibility for associate behavior. Would not place the call to garden city while my wife waited in hold. Told my wife there are too many customers in the store and she needed to help them. After spending 3000 in your stores this is the way your employees are handling customers that have been living in a devastation for the past month? I am shocked you allow people like this to represent you! Shame Shame!!
