i like lowes better then home depot is because the parking is better and the prices are lower. it is also easy to find everything and th associates are very friendly. My first impresion of this hardware store was not that good because the lights weren't that bright and i wasn't able to find the brands that i like here. lowes is different from similair bussinesses because it is less popular and have worse quality. The decor of the store was nice and it was easy to find a good parking spot.
