Lowes or Home Depot... which do you like more?
So... I'm buying my first house. Because of the whole weirdness with my better half living in another country, and that distinct possibility that, any moment, she'll move to NYC, I've been living in an apartment for FAR longer than I've really wanted to. But interest rates being what they are, and the house prices having dropped a LOT lately, I've decided to bite the bullet and buy anyway. But enough about me. :)
Which do you prefer, Lowe's or Home Depot, and why? I've never really been much of a hardware/home fellow. I'm more at home in a Sephora or an Express than a hardware store. Ask me what the latest clothing line is from Bebe or Calvin Klein? I've got your information. Ask me what a belt sander looks like, and I'm liable to describe an angle grinder. Or a hammer.
But, being as I'm liable to have a lot of things to work on in the home, from paint (yay colours!) to carpeting to mowing the lawn, I was wondering if anyone had preferences on the two big home stores. And why.
