Your favorite home improvement store?

In order of my faves:
Lowes
Menards
Home Depot

I will go to Lowes 75% of the time. I really don't like the other two at all, hate the store setup, selection and general "feel". I could spend hours in Lowes, especially the garden area.
Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
I really try to go to one of the locally owned places before I got to Lowes. There's at least one small hardware and nursery in every town on the way to a Lowes, so I try to give those a chance first. At least they try to help me, and they'll order what I want if they don't have it.

Lowe's is my pick too. Unfortunately there are none near me, so I spend more time at Home Depot than I'd prefer.
Home improvement stores are slim pickings around here. I prefer Home Depot, I feel like it's set up more for contractors/builders and Lowe's is set up more for the home owner. In my experience if I have a question the Home Depot employees are extremely knowledgeable about the area they work in and can tell me more than I need to know. At Lowe's the employees I've encountered always know less about the product than I do.

If I don't need something in particular and am just browsing I prefer to go to IKEA
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

i like the home building centre downtown near me - it's local - Copp's Buildall.

after that, i'll go to a larger Canadian chain - Home Hardware. then an even LARGER one - Rona.

followed by Home Depot. Lowe's hasn't made it to London - yet.

I prefer Lowe's but I will use Home Depot in a pinch.
