MrsDrPoe: Our Pals At Lowes

Welcome to another edition of Poes' Pals here on the blog!  This post is a bit different than normal, but I hope that you'll enjoy and find it helpful (particularly those of you in the metro Atlanta area).  Please meet our friends at Lowe's

As you probably know if you're a frequent reader, Mr. Poe and I have recently purchased our first house.  A foreclosure in need of some cosmetic work, we've been painting, de-wallpapering, and flooring for the past several weekends.  With all the painting over the upstairs carpeted areas coming to a close, we decided that the time had come to order new carpet.

While we had looked at several stores in the area, we decided that Lowe's had the best deal* on what we wanted.  While the management and staff at every store we visited seemed extremely knowledgeable about their products, the folks at Lowe's went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied customers.

If you visit this location for flooring, be sure to visit Mr. D. Rosser.  He helped us through the whole carpeting process, calling the factory to give us a better estimate on when the materials would be delivered to the installers, setting us up with some fantastic installation guys, and even taking the time to patiently and cheerfully re-entering all of the order/dimensioning information into their system after I made a mistake and canceled the order the first time.

We'd also recommend the staff we've dealt with in the paint department, the management, and various other folks that have answered our miscellaneous questions throughout the store.  

Note: We have not been paid or provided any free/discounted service/materials for this post.

*Throughout the month of February, Lowe's is offering a promotion where you pay $0.01 to have them come out and measure the areas you want carpeted with no commitment from you to purchase flooring from them.  They also are currently offering basic whole-house carpet installation for $97.99.
