Lowe’s adding farm and ranch offerings in up to 300 stores


MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Lowe’s announced a new one-stop shop concept designed to bring more product offerings to customers in rural areas. The one-shop concept is rolling out among selected stores, primarily in the South, Midwest, and Northeast, throughout the summer.

In these rural Lowe’s locations, customers can expect to find broader product offerings in categories such as pet, livestock, trailers, fencing, utility vehicles, and specialized hardware — plus new Carhartt apparel in select stores and the expansion of Wrangler in all rural stores. These merchandising moves are designed to meet the unique needs and preferences of rural homeowners who work and play outdoors. The company also plans to add more national apparel brands to its rural assortment in coming months.

“Our goal with this product expansion is to grow our relationship with the consumer who is already looking to Lowe’s for their interiors solutions, but also has a need for top-of-the-line, best value products for outdoor, rural or farm living,” said Bill Boltz, Lowe’s executive vice president of merchandising. “Given our rural store footprint and longstanding relationships in these communities, this expansion will simplify the shopping experience for these very valuable customers and help us continue to grow market share through our Total Home strategy.”
