Lowe's Announces Home Repair Workshops

Lowe's home repair workshop

Lowe's today announced the debut of Home Repair Workshops, where knowledgeable Lowe's red vest associates teach customers basic home repair and maintenance DIY skills through live, interactive workshops. As more millennial homeowners look for ways to save money on home repairs, Lowe's Home Repair Workshops provide the support and knowledge they need to maintain and update their homes themselves rather than outsourcing to a professional.

Beginning Saturday, Nov. 11, Home Repair Workshops will be hosted in 100 stores across the U.S. on Saturdays and Sundays, offering DIYers and homeowners the opportunity to develop their home repair skills and tackle common household projects with confidence and efficacy. Participating Lowe's stores will have stations dedicated to workshops, with quick, hands-on demos available all day during normal store operating hours, no registration required.

Customers will experience a hands-on approach to learning common home repair tasks, including:

  • How to Repair, Replace or Unclog a Toilet
  • How to Replace a Faucet and Fix Drainage Issues
  • How to Replace Different Types of Outlets and Switches
  • How to Patch and Repair Drywall

With the median age of homes over 41 years old*, homeowners are prioritizing projects like repairs and regular maintenance to update their homes and extend the time they will live there, while also helping to avoid costly repairs down the road. Lowe's red vest associates offer a wealth of knowledge and resources for 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. These Home Repair Workshops are just one way Lowe's is investing in this generation of homeowners," said Jen Wilson, Lowe's senior vice president, enterprise brand and marketing. "We are proud to be their trusted resource, not only offering the tools they need, but empowering them with the skills and confidence to take repair projects on themselves for less."

MyLowe's customers who participate in an in-store workshop can also receive a digital coupon book to help them save on common repair products, corresponding with the workshop topic they attended**. Coupon promotions available to workshop participants may include, but are not limited to:

  • 10% off select toilets

  • 20% off select bath faucets
  • 20% off select USB outlets

  • 50% off '2x2' drywall repair patch

For customers unable to attend in-store sessions, Lowe's also provides on-demand videos and how-to articles to ensure DIYers of all ages have easy access to interactive resources and enabling them to dig deeper into project ideas, best practices and recommendations.
