Lowe’s was founded by World War II veteran Carl Buchan, and it was his leadership, vision, and military skills that helped us grow from a small hardware store in Wilkesboro, NC, to the nation’s second largest home improvement retailer and FORTUNE® 50 company. The military is truly a part of our history and an important part of our plan for the future. We recognize, honor, and respect those who serve in our country's military, and encourage veterans, reservists and military spouses to join the Lowe’s family. That’s why Lowe’s is a Military Friendly Employer and why as we continue to grow, so does our commitment to the military as a source of valuable talent. We also partner with and support the following military organizations:
We invite you to explore career opportunities at Lowe’s, as well as visit our military event calendar and our partners:
- Career Opportunities

- Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP)

What does Lowe’s offer its military personnel?
Over 14,000 military, veterans and military spouses work throughout the Lowe’s organization. Each lends their unique skills and talents to Lowe’s, increasing our “Power of We.” Lowe’s shows appreciation for their efforts by offering the following:
- Extended Benefits for Employees Actively Serving in the Military
- 10% Veteran’s Discount on Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day weekends
- 10% Military Discount Every Day (Active, Reserve, Retired and Disabled Veterans)
- The Lowe's Employee Giving Campaign – Lowe’s Matches Employee Donations (50 cents for every dollar) to benefit the USO and other organizations
If you’ve just returned from active military service and are seeking a career in the private or civilian sector, or are expecting to be discharged soon, it may be a daunting task to find a job as a civilian. It can be especially difficult if you’ve been in the military for a long time or have only worked in the armed forces.
As part of our ongoing efforts to support members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families, Lowe’s is an active partner of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), which works with military installation contacts to connect military spouses with job opportunities. We invite you to explore this valuable military partner and their offerings.
