Welcome Lowe's to Lincoln Square

The Lincoln Square BID welcomes our neighborhood's newest business: Lowe's Home Improvement - the first Lowe's to open in Manhattan. The brand-new store, located at 2008 Broadway between W. 68th and W. 69th Street, recently had its soft opening and is planning a grand opening on Thursday, September 10.

This particular Lowe's will cater to the needs of city dwellers by tailoring its inventory accordingly. Customers will be able to find apartment-sized appliances, potted plants, and home improvement tools specifically made for urban living. Lowe's is already generating lots of press as Upper West Siders get ready to become their own handy men and women.
