Thread: Lowes Home Improvement Stores and their anti gun policies

  1. Lowes Anti-gun Policies

    I used to work for a security company that had a contract for patrolling the parking lot for a couple of Lowes here in Philadelphia, it was an UNARMED contract. They said it was due to liability but the neighborhoods where we worked were both well known high crime areas. I wasn't even supposed to bring a weapon and store it in my own vehicle on their lot. I parked in a smaller lot that was right next to theirs just to avoid the problem. Also the loss prevention team actually told me they did NOT want my help to detain or take a suspect into custody. So basically they just wanted me to watch their cars and the customer's cars and if someone ran out of the store with merchandise to just watch them too. They also didn't want us to socialize at all with their employees. Their attitude was "Well we really don't want you here but Corporate is making us use you so we will have you do as little as we possibly can."

    Two great things about America, one - you can choose to shop somewhere else. Two - as a private business, I can tell you to take a hike if you don't like how I run things. No one has RIGHTS in a private business, except the right to leave. You can vote with your feet, not everything in life is fair.
    This I know I was in a hurry it will be edited out. Not worried about it I have friends who will be getting the documents I seek. As for voting with me feet I think I'll vote with my wallet. As I have pointed out run your own search on the matter and you will find pages upon pages of them asking people to leave for carrying concealed and open. As all the members liked to point out in the heated OC topic. Restricting the right to carry is being a anti and as such Lowes falls into that category. Take it how ever you want to but people do need to know that they are a anti company and that is why they are in this sub forum. If you have never had a problem good,great, grand,wonderful but other people have.

    Lowes policy is they do not stop shop lifters. They tell all of their employees to offer assistance to the shop lifter and help him remove the item from the store if needed. Stop and great, offer assistance, ask for receipt if they refuse let them go. They claim their goal is outstanding customer service and even the shop lifter is a customer(all be it a none paying one) but still a customer none the less.

    You have no idea how glad (even more than usual) this makes me that
    I live in Georgia.

    I have been in and out of Lowes and HD many times, and talked for more than
    a few employees in the course of shopping for a particular item...
    and have never gotten more than... "wow.. nice holster..." from any of them.
    I also looked back at the thread over at GeorgiaPacking and see
    that many of my fellow Georgian's have had similar experiences... (except for
    the holster part).

    Doesn't seem to be an issue here..

    thats a story that needs to be told...

    Any business can ask you to leave, I have no problem with that, this has not been a problem in Texas (concealed only) and suspect it will not be, I assume in an open carry state, if you are ask to leave they are assuming all responsibility for your safety while in store.

    Don't hold your breath on that one.... More like they assume that your wallet and gun are not connected in any way...

    I open carry in the Lowes here in my town and also any Lowes I visit in Columbus and have never had any problems at all. I have had a few cashiers ask me what I do for a living because they always see my sidearm, and I tell them why I carry. Thats about it
