I had gone to Lowes to get fertilizer. On the way in, I noticed they had vegetable plants on sale.

I bought the fertilizer and loaded it in my care when my wife called and needed some mosquito spray. I went back in, got it, and was headed back out to buy a couple of tomato plants when 2 female employees jumped in front of my cart. I told them I was just going to get a few other things but they wouldn't let go of my cart. I left it and as I was leaving she yelled across the store to what looked like a manager that I was trying to leave with merchandise.


I've shopped there for years but never again. I'm a 60 year old Professor and never stolen anything from anyone.

I went to Lowe's in Fort Oglethorpe, GA to purchase a small chest freezer. The display model was damaged and had a clearance price on it.

I told the sales person that I did not want the floor model. She checked in the back and told me that they still had some in their warehouse. I asked her the price. She told me it was the clearance price, that they must be changing models.

I waited a week for the delivery because I didn't want the display. When they finally delivered the freezer, they said it was damaged. They had brought me the display model. (and the delivery was a nightmare, too).

I called the store and they told me that I would have to come back in and let them credit and rebill for a new one.(and of course it costs more).

Then I tried to log in to leave my complaint and it is telling me that the user name or password is incorrect. (and I know it isn't!)


Why?Did you not pay first.You could have alway's came back for the package.Seems like you were trying to get something for nothing.You very seldom see a person load their vehicle first without paying.


I find it hard to be believe they jumped in front of your cart, all dramatic about spray. Maybe power tools.

I think you were heading out with it, stealing or not stealing, and they just asked if you've paid for that. Stop the drama.

If you hadn't paid for the mosquito spray and were headed outside with it, what were the employees supposed to think?
