EGO moves to Lowe’s
Lowe's announced that it is expanding its portfolio of outdoor power brands and will launch the EGO brand of products later this year.
The move includes EGO battery-powered mowers, blowers, string trimmers, hedge trimmers, edgers, chainsaws, and snowblowers.
Just yesterday The Home Depot reported that it was resetting its outdoor power equipment lineup and would no longer carry Ego products.
Through the latest partnership, Lowe’s becomes the official home center retailer of EGO. The OPE brand is also sold through Ace Hardware stores, Amazon, and independent retailers.
EGO products will be available on Lowes.com and in select stores beginning this fall with a full rollout expected in February 2021.
"We are relentless in bringing the best quality, innovation and brands to our consumers, and today's announcement is another bold step forward in our pursuit of bringing the best outdoor power equipment offering to our stores," said Bill Boltz, executive vice president of merchandising for Lowe's. "EGO is an undisputed industry leader in creating cutting-edge technology and design. This line of cordless power equipment is trusted by both DIY and Pro customers to take on any lawn and garden project, with convenience and ease."
Lowe's will also begin offering select SKIL battery-powered outdoor power equipment in late 2020 including push and self-propelled mowers, leaf blowers, string and hedge trimmers, among other products and accessories.
"Chervon is excited to extend our partnership with Lowe's to include EGO, the #1 rated brand in cordless outdoor power equipment," said Mike Clancy, CEO Chervon North America. "We also look forward to the nationwide introduction of the all new SKIL 40V, 20V and 12V lineups."
Lowe’s operates and services more than 2,200 stores in the United States and Canada.
