Inside a Lowe’s that’s closed: the slideshow

A visually exciting store in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan ends its run.

BY HBSDealer Staff

In early 2016, Lowe’s opened a store in the fashionable Chelsea neighborhood. It was an innovative urban format – 30,000 square feet and two floors — that was weak on parking, but strong on visual excitement. A $21 flat-fee for same-day delivery catered to the subway-riding customer base.

The Chelsea store was part retailer, part gallery, and it was described in a HBSDealer headline as a “Lowe’s you have to see.”

The store was the second Manhattan Lowe’s store – an Upper West Side location opened a few months earlier. Both of the stores were among the 51 stores marked for closure in the Mooresville, N.C.-based company’s Monday announcement. Lowe’s explained the round of closures as an effort to rid its fleet of underperforming stores.

The company will continue to operate in New York City, including in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
