Lowe’s for Pros Supplier Website Joins eStores

Beginning Thursday, February 1, Lowe’s Home Improvement and eStores introduced the Lowe’s for Pros supplier website. The previous hosted catalog for appliances was removed on Wednesday, January 31. The new catalog includes a broad selection of products available in the retail stores at contract discounts ranging from 7-20%.

Available product categories include:  appliances, asphalt, concrete and masonry supplies, decorative items, doors, floor mats, indoor furniture, landscaping and gardening supplies, lumber, paint, storage containers and windows.

Product restrictions: Some products such as tools, lighting, plumbing supplies, janitorial supplies and hardware are restricted from the catalog because they are available in eStores through other contracted suppliers such as Grainger, Loeb Electric and Ferguson.

Central Receiving delivery for most orders: Columbus campus staff should have most orders from Lowe’s delivered to Central Receiving with the exception of doors, windows and lumber. Those items should be delivered directly to the customer location. Concrete, masonry supplies and mulch can be delivered to Central Receiving on pallets. 

The store locations listed below are set up specifically to receive orders through the catalog. Customers will have the option to pick up catalog orders in the store if necessary.  

No discount on PCard purchases: The Ohio State contract with Lowe’s does not extend contract pricing to purchases made in the retail stores. Ohio State customers should make purchases through the eStores supplier website to receive the contract discounts.
