Have you ever been to a Lowe's or a Home Depot?  How are they any different from a Builder's Square or a Hechinger's?  The only thing you complain about is going back to the past.  You can't come to the fact that this is a different world out there today.

But what I'm getting is that when a store demolishes a previous one for a bigger store you know its a Lowe's thats being built like in Waterford will look the same as the Lowe's in Manchester or Plainville.

I KNOW THIS WORLD IS HEADING FOR FREESTANDING BIG BOX STORES AND LIFESTYLE CENTERS

instead of plazas and malls!

besides I would like variety in stores INSTEAD OF JUST TWO BIG ONES!!!!!!!

when it comes to home improvement


First, I don't live in New England.  I live in Marlton, New Jersey, so I don't know what the heck you're talking about.  Second, there are still plazas & malls that are doing very well.  The only things that big boxes & lifestyle centers are replacing are dead malls.  Finally, there's plenty of other hardware stores such as True Value, Ace, & local hardware stores.  Why don't you go to them?

Retail is always changing.  Years ago, you had major department stores.  Whine all you want about Lowe's and Home Depot and Wal-Mart building huge stores, but Macy's, Hudson's, Kaufmann's, Gimbel's, Sibley's, AM&A's, etc.... all had stores much larger than the largest big box stores today.  As years went on, the stores moved out of downtown to suburban plazas and then to the malls.  Malls thrived for thirty years and now we've moved on to the big-box lifestyle centers.  It's just the next thing in retail.  Just like the rest of life, it's important to remember the past and there's nothing wrong with reminiscing...but you have to be able to accept change and move on.

Bravo! *claps all around* Kudos to you for saying that. I have been saying that since i started on these boards. I agree, you have to accept the changes that come with this industry. If you don't then you wont last, and you will be left behind. You have to roll with the punches, so to speak. And for the record, i prefer Home Depot rather than Lowes!

I know. Seriously I can't stand them anymore. They eat up the trusted old small hardware stores that was started by some family 80 years ago and there runned by the third generation now. I like them. they also knocked down my Five Points shopping center in Montgomeryville with the Bradlees and the Job Lot and Builder Square and House of Bargains and Thrift Drug and the fantastic Weis Market I loved and the design of the building was so 70's and beautiful when there was a sunset over it and now its gone for one of there cookie cutter stores. Another place, Warminster Drive-In. Some many memories, watching so many movies in my parent's old Country Squire and even later when it was known as MY Country Squire. Taken down for a Lowe's, a Target, a Genuardi's and some small restuarants and a bank. Lowe's, the Wal-Mart of home improvement.

I don't have a problem with Lowe's. Their stores are much brighter and cleaner with employees that actually know something. Home Depot is the "Wal-Mart" of hardware stores. I think of Lowe's as the "Target" of hardware stores:D

As a homeowner, I have to admit that I have alot of use for both of these stores, but Lowe's will normally win as their stores make it much easier to find what you need and have a better variety.  However, Home Depot employees normally seem to be much more knowledgeable about showing you how to do things or which is the best product to buy.

BTW- I loved and still miss Hechingers.  They were the best!!!

I must be in the minority that likes Home Depot.  It seems I have better luck finding what I need there than at Lowe's.  Case in point: Home Depot sells electrical spade connectors that I frequently use in packages of 10 (or more if I need a bigger package, which I never buy).  The last couple of times I was in Lowe's, they had an assortment of connectors (that is, 4 of the ones I need and 50 others that I will likely never use).  I'll take Home Depot.

Shopping at Lowes makes me more fluent in Spanish.

Shopping at Home Depot makes me more fluent in obscenities.

The obscenities came during five days of cold showers that it took for the
HQ in Atlanta to make good on the warranty on my water heater.
