A: Lowe's has more than 40,000 items in stock, but did you know there is more than 10 times that amount available through our Special Order Sales (SOS) program that can be ordered according to your specifications.

In your local Lowe's, each department has special order merchandise catalogues available. In some departments, the catalogues are on display at red, free-standing kiosks or in red, metal catalogue holders placed throughout the department. In other departments, there will be samples of the special order items on display. If you cannot locate a special-order catalogue, ask a sales associate in the department to locate one for you. Browse the catalogue until you find the item(s) you want.

If you have information about a product, but the item is not stocked in the store, a sales associate in the relevant department may be able to order the product for you. The more information you have about the product (manufacturer, model name, etc.), the easier it will be to locate it.

Making a Purchase In Store?

After you have selected the product you want to order, a sales associate will use the store's computer system to determine the price. If you want to make a purchase, the associate will enter the sale into the store's computer. After entering your order, the sales associate will give you an estimate of when your order will arrive at the store.

The sales associate will also take your name and ask your preferred method of contact, either via telephone or e-mail, so we can notify you when the order arrives. If you wish, you can make arrangements for Lowe's to deliver the product to you. In some cases, the items can be shipped directly to your home.

You can continue to shop in the store; when you are ready to check out, give the cashier your telephone number and they will look up the sale information and ring up the purchase.

Receiving Your Items

When your Special Order item arrives at the store and you selected store pick up, you will receive an auto-notification message to your preferred method of contact. Either telephone or email is acceptable. You can pick the item up yourself or call the store to finalize the arrangements to have it delivered. If you selected store delivery for your Special Order item, a sales associate will call you and let you know your order is available for delivery. Special Order items require an average of 7 to 14 business days to arrive in store, but this timeframe may vary by product.

A: You can apply to one of our commercial programs by visiting your local Lowe's store.
