Pro customers can now get on-demand delivery from Lowe’s
Lowe’s is catering even further to its pro customers with the launch of ProExpress, an on-demand delivery service for emergency and last-minute supplies.
"For pros, time is money," said Mike Horn, VP ProServices. "The ProExpress program allows us to offer our pro customers the ultimate convenience and flexibility by delivering the materials they need, when they need them."
The light-duty ProExpress trucks have been operating since April of this year, delivering supplies directly to project sites and to businesses in order to restock shelves with cleaning and maintenance supplies.
The service is designed to meet needs in a variety of situations, such as providing a missing smoke detector in order to pass an inspection or supplying shingles in time for a major storm.
Pro customers can currently avail themselves of the service at more than 200 Lowe’s stores across the country.
