A tipster pointed us to this article from the Commercial Observer, who heard that home improvement chain Lowe's is looking at spaces around the city to debut an "urban concept" shop that's similar to furniture store Gracious Home.
The brand currently has four of their traditional outposts (read: hardware stores) in the five boroughs—two in Brooklyn and two in Staten Island. The Manhattan locations they were reportedly scouting include 2000 Broadway near 68th Street and 635 Sixth Avenue, near those gorgeous old buildings with TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Bed Bath & Beyond.
CO doesn't have any details on what that concept shop could entail, and Lowe's declined to comment for the article.
