Lowe's likes Scarborough - and vice versa
Lowe’s has just opened two new stores in Scarborough. One is at 6005 Steeles Avenue East and the other is located at 800 Warden Avenue. I took a few moments out of my very busy schedule to pop by the opening of the latter (okay, okay – I’ll take any excuse to roam around a home improvement store). Since entering the Canadian home improvement market a few years ago, Lowe’s has really forced other retailers to raise their game. These stores are bright, clean and well laid-out. I’ve never yet had in a Lowe’s the frustrating experience of having to squeeze past a skid of cargo that’s waiting to get unloaded to get to the item I needed. They have a good product assortment, and I’m a big fan of Lowe’s house brands, especially the no-VOC Olympic paint line. If you’re in the neighbourhood this weekend, stop by the Warden Avenue location — apparently they’ll be grand opening events, including prizes. Bryan Baeumler, host of HGTV's Disaster DIY, will also be there to conduct a deck, fence and spring maintenance clinic from 11-12 p.m. on Saturday, June 27.
