In Their Own Words: The Rebuilding of the Lowe’s store in Sanford, North Carolina
On April 16, 2011, the Lowe’s of Sanford, N.C. was devastated by an F3 tornado. Just over four months later, what was Lowe’s #608 became Lowe’s #3608, reopening to thousands of customers, community leaders and members of our Lowe’s family.
Two Lowe's Television team members traveled to Sanford to document this celebration of a community and company coming together, defying the odds and rebuilding a better store to serve our neighbors of this small town in eastern North Carolina. “In Their Own Words” tells the story through the eyes of the employees that were in the store when the tornado hit.
