To buy Online, Store Pickup lets you make a purchase through Lowes.com or the Lowe’s mobile app and pick it up at the store for free.
To place an online order through “Buy Online, Store Pickup”:
1. First, add an eligible item to your cart, select Pickup and place your order.
2. Now you need to wait until you receive a “Ready for Pickup” email that your order is ready.
3. Grab your car keys, drive to the Lowe’s you placed the order with and park in one of the designated Pickup spots at the store and follow the bright blue Pickup signs to the customer service desk.
According to the website you MUST bring your photo ID (state driver’s license, military or state ID) and the order number or confirmation email. WARNING: Call your local store if you have any online order questions or questions about whether an item is eligible for store pickup.
According to the website, ordering online exclusive items at Lowe’s means that your purchase is shipped directly from the vendor.
- Online only items are shipped to you directly from our Vendors. This allows us to offer more variety and value with the same level of service as if your purchase was shipped directly by Lowe’s.
- On each product page, we display the Vendor’s stated lead time, which refers to the time from their receipt of your order to when it’s ready to ship to you. We do our best to provide you with accurate shipping times for these products. The times are estimates only. Lowe’s truck deliveries for large Online Only exclusive items are curb-side only. Curb-side delivery service provides delivery of your item(s) to the curb at the end of your driveway. This service does not include setup or assembly of items or removal of packaging materials. All other Online Only items will be delivered via standard ground shipping.
- The “Ships-In” time for our Online Only Vendor-Direct Shipping items is provided to Lowes.ca by each vendor and is an estimate of the average number of business days it takes the Vendor to process your order and ship the item from their warehouse. These shipping times are not a guarantee.
- Items will be delivered curbside due to weight restrictions. The customer will be responsible for placing the item in their home.
- Online only products marked “In Stock” are items that the Vendor has provided us a real-time inventory feed for. These items normally ship from their warehouse within two business days; however, these products are subject to prior sale and availability and lead times are not guaranteed.
- Occasionally, Vendor-Direct items shown to be in stock or available get pre-sold; in this case, you will be sent an email notification that your item is on backorder. You have the option to continue to wait for that item, cancel your order for a full refund, or select a different item to order.
- Any item purchased online can be returned to any Lowe’s Store. Please see our return policy for more details.
- We recommend ordering custom products well in advance to avoid project delays.
- Purchases from Lowes.ca can only be shipped to destinations within Canada; standard shipping rates apply unless specified.
- Lowe’s is not liable for costs associated with shipment delays.

Lowe’s Canada History:
According to the website:
In 1921, Lowe’s began as a small neighbourhood hardware store. The philosophy was simple: to deliver superior customer service. Since then, we’ve grown into one of the world’s largest home improvement retailers, becoming a Fortune 500 company with thousands of employees. This incredible success story begins another chapter with the expansion of Lowe’s here in Canada.
Lowe’s Canada Locations:
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Lowe’s Canada opened their first three branches on December 10, 2007, in Hamilton, Brampton and Brantford.
On February 1, 2008, they opened three more stores in Canada located in Toronto, East Gwillimbury, and a second store in Brampton as well as a new location in Maple (Vaughan).
Lowe’s also expanded into western Canada by establishing three new stores in Calgary, Alberta. One of the three locations opened in late September 2010 while the other 2 opened in early 2011.
Today, there are Lowe’s stores in British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
According to a 2018 stat, Lowe’s has 62 locations in Canada. Each store represents an average investment of $20.5 million (US$20.4 million).
Lowe’s Canada CEO and Partnership:
In February 2013, Lowe’s Canada employed former Walmart Canada and Loblaw Companies executive Sylvain Prud’homme as CEO.
On May 11, 2015, Lowe’s Canada announced that it would acquire the leases of 13 former Target Canada stores, as well as an Ontario distribution centre, for $151 million.
3 years prior to this, Lowe’s attempted to buy Rona, Inc., a Quebec-based hardware chain. However, the deal was met with objections from Rona shareholders (particularly the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec) and operators of its franchised locations over concerns that their store could centralize its supply operations in the United States, and was therefore called off.
On a good turn of fortune as of February 3, 2016, Rona announced that it had accepted an offer to be acquired by Lowe’s for CDN $3.2 billion, pending regulatory and shareholder approval. The division will remain under the leadership of Sylvain Prud’homme (the current CEO) but will be operated out of Rona’s headquarters in Boucherville. Lowe’s plans to maintain Rona’s retail banners, “key” executives, and the “vast majority of its current employees” post-acquisition.
As of February 2020, Lowe’s closed 34 lower performance stores, 26 that were under the Rona brand, 6 Lowe’s, and 2 Réno-Dépôt.
Lowe’s Canada Recycling Programs:
Check your local Lowe’s store and bring them the following recyclables. Their goal is to prevent these items from ending up in landfills. According to the Lowe’s Canada website:
Single Use Dry Cell Batteries
You can bring in your old lithium primary batteries, household primary batteries (AA batteries, AAA batteries, 6 volt batteries, etc.), and button cells (those sold in hearing aids, watches, etc.).
Take positive action. Bring us your used rechargeable batteries and we’ll ensure they’re properly recycled. We can accept the following battery types:
Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
Used Paint Collection
Don’t leave a mark on the environment. Let us properly recycle your old latex and oil and solvent-based paints and coatings, including:
Tinted or untinted stains and primers
Paints and coatings for household use
Paints in aerosol containers
*Please note that we cannot accept paints containing pesticides, containers exceeding 23 litres in volume in Alberta and 25 L in volume in other provinces, and bitumen-based driveway or roof coatings and sealers.
Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) Bulbs
Here’s a bright idea. Bring your used CFL bulbs to us where we’ll dispose of them safely. Since they contain mercury, CFL bulbs should never be thrown out with regular household waste. Take your used light bulbs into any Lowe’s and simply deposit them into our recycling bin.
*Please note that light sources such as halogens, incandescent bulbs, spotlights, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps cannot be accepted.
As a responsible retailer, we have partnered with the organizations listed below to manage the end-of-life collection of tire-equipped products we have sold. Via the network management of our partners, we fund, in a responsible way, the collection, transportation and the safe recycling of the used tires.:
