What’s the difference between a house and a home?
What’s the difference between a house and a home? There are many ways to distinguish the two, but what is perhaps most important is that a house doesn’t usually feel like a home until we make it our personal space. After all, a home is not just a refuge, but a true reflection of who we are and how we want to live. Lowe’s has been helping people turn their houses and apartments into homes and helping them love where they live since we first opened our doors in 1946. The Lowe’s culture is built on continuing to answer this call.
How do we do it? Together, our Red Vest associates work as individuals sharing their knowledge and skills and as a cooperative, collaborative team that embodies the “Power of We” to help customer’s dreams come true – project after project. If you’re curious and courageous and have desire to make things happen, then you share our culture and mission. We invite you to join us.

And our corporate responsibility requires that we ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees and have a positive impact on the communities we all share. It is why Lowe’s is committed to a variety of giving programs that benefit where we live and work through product donations, generous grants and by encouraging employees, our Lowe’s Heroes - to volunteer. We also continue to make efforts within our business that have community implications as well such as sourcing sustainable products, proactively finding ways to reduce our environmental footprint and to conserve and recycle the resources that we all share and depend upon. We believe that we are fulfilling our purpose by focusing on these efforts and we look to our employees as well as our customers to help us progress in these important endeavors.
