Participating Lowe's stores have stations dedicated to the workshops, with quick, interactive demos available all day during normal store operating hours, no registration required.
With the median age of homes over 41 years old, according to the U.S. Census Bureau 2021 American Housing Survey, homeowners are prioritizing projects like repairs and regular maintenance to update their homes and extend the time they will live there, while also avoiding costly repairs down the road, per the release. Lowe's red vest associates have a wealth of knowledge and resources available to customers looking to take on these projects themselves, from providing demonstrations, project tips and tricks, and product recommendations.
"We know Millennial homeowners can use some extra help when it comes to tackling basic home repairs, especially since more basic projects can help them save money versus hiring a professional for the project,” Jen Wilson, Lowe's senior vice president, enterprise brand and marketing , said in the release. “These Home Repair Workshops are just one way Lowe's is investing in this generation of homeowners."
MyLowe's customers who participate in an in-store workshop can also receive a digital coupon book offering savings on common repair products, corresponding with the workshop topic they attended. (Participants must have a personal MyLowe’s account and ask an associate to validate attendance to register to redeem the book.)
Coupon promotions available to workshop participants may include:
- 10% off select toilets.
- 15% off select vanities.
- 20% off select bath faucets.
- 20% off select USB outlets.
- 25% off toilet repair kits.
- 50% off 2x2 drywall repair patch.
Lowe's also provides on-demand videos, how-to articles and interactive resources to DIYers of all ages to assist them with at-home project ideas, best practices and recommendations on Lowes.com/DIYU.
