Anyone who's lived in a big city knows the struggles of finding a place to store your stuff, trying to make somewhere feel like home when you only signed a one-year lease and getting your big-ticket purchases back to your apartment without owning a car.
Lowe's is looking to make it easier.
The home improvement store is opening two Manhattan locations over the next few months, its first stores in a walkable city. To cater to the urban customer, Lowe's spent 18 months working with residents, contractors and property managers to fine-tune its assortment for the city lifestyle.
That includes such compact merchandise offerings as a fold-up broom, easy-to-move closet organization systems that don't require drilling and its first stores that offer same-day delivery.
