Home Depot verse Lowes


In the battle of home supply and hardware superstores, The Home Depot edges out Lowe’s Home Improvement in most critical areas – relative pricing, delivery, and Energy-Star compliance -- with the exception of open-box product returns.

Lowe’s favorably honors returns for 90-days following a purchase, but free ground shipping significantly tips the scale in favor of The Home Depot.

There is a lot of product overlap between the two retailers. You can find close to the same number of bargains at Lowe’s and The Home Depot; however, significant deals are frequently found at The Home Depot. Across all product areas -- particularly over a growing period of time, and multiple orders -- The Home Depot is going to save you money in base cost and delivery.

  1. James_Builds James_Builds says:
    Home Depot has excellent customer service...there's someone in every isle.

  2. Amile.Rog Amile.Rog says:
    Lowe's is cleaner, better organized. I feel like it easier to find things in there

  3. Josh Josh says:
    Sorry this is incorrect, Home Depot clearly states that they have a 90 day return policy and will take back anything within that time, even damage goods. They also can search by credit.debit card as well as checks for return receipts. Please get your facts straight before comparing two things.

  4. Ralph J. Ralph J. says:
    The basic return policy according to the HD site is as stated by the writer - 90 days for unopened goods: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?pn=Return_Policy&catalogId=10053&storeId=10051&langId=-1 You can get them to take back any opened/damaged goods for up to 30 days

  5. M. O'shaughnessy M. O'shaughnessy says:
    Josh: Depot states unopened products for 90 days; damaged products for 30 days.

  6. Gracie Knows All Gracie Knows All says:
    I prefer home depot because of their pricing and I the staff is always available and helpful. Orange > Blue
