If a new Lowe's is better than the Watertown Home Depot, that would be great (and I don't think it would be too hard).
But the traffic this could create on Market & North Beacon Streets? OUCH!
New Lowe’s to improve Hub site - Business - BostonHerald.com
Lowe’s Home Centers is proposing a nearly 200,000-square-foot, two-level store next to the Massachusetts Turnpike in Brighton, not far from where WGBH is moving into its new, high-profile, glass-encased headquarters.
It’s slated to take shape where the long-vacant Barry Controls factory butts up against the Pike. Lowe’s would tear down the long, white concrete structure, replacing it with one of its first two-story stores in the country.
The retailer hopes to start construction next year on its proposed Lowe’s of Boston store, which would employ between 180 to 200 workers.
