A Brief History

Lowe’s was founded in 1921 by Lucius Smith Lowe, and was originally called Lowe’s North Wilkesboro Hardware. The company stayed with Lucius until his passing in 1940, at which time the ownership transferred to his son, Jim. From there Jim and his partner, Carl Buchan, began a path that saw Lowe’s grow exponentially.  Eventually Carl would buy the company outright and grow it to 5 locations before his passing in 1961. The retailer went public in 1962 and would continue to grow over the next 50 years to more than 2,300 locations.
