Home improvement retailer Lowe’s, in partnership with OneRail, has announced expansion of its same-day delivery service across the US.
The service is available for orders placed on Lowes.com and the Lowe’s mobile app, with deliveries expected in a matter of hours.
Customers can order from tens of thousands of products including building materials, décor, and seasonal and outdoor living items that are in-stock at a nearby store.
Same-day delivery is available for orders placed by 2pm local time, while orders after 2pm get delivered the following day.
Lowe’s chairman and CEO Marvin Ellison said: “Utilising all of our 1,700-plus stores for online delivery and fulfilment is essential to becoming a true omnichannel retailer. Lowe’s knows our customers want fast delivery options and convenient ways to get the products they need across the home – whether it’s preparing the backyard for summer BBQs or getting building materials to the Pro’s jobsite on the very same day.
“This same-day delivery expansion delivers on our Total Home strategy to bring more omnichannel shopping capabilities to DIYers and Pros alike.”

Based in Mooresville, North Carolina, Lowe’s operates more than 1,700 home improvement stores in the US and employs approximately 300,000 associates.
In 2022, the retailer started testing same-day delivery with OneRail in select markets.
OneRail founder and CEO Bill Catania said: “The ability to execute same-day delivery fulfilment, whether the customer is placing an order online or on a mobile app, is at the heart of omnichannel transformation and enabled by our OmniPoint software platform and 12-million-driver network.”
In May this year, Lowe’s reported that its comparable sales fell 4.3% in the first quarter (Q1) of the fiscal year (FY) 2023 compared with Q1 of FY22.
