The long awaited construction work for a new Lowe's on Palmer Ranch will finally commence. Original plans had the construction starting some four years ago but the downturn in the economy caused the home improvement giant to hold off plans until now.
The Lowe's on Palmer Ranch will be located on Central Sarasota Parkway between the formerAlbertson's store and the Bella Villino condominiums.
120 jobs are reported to be created when the opens which could be as soon as next January. Nearby residents will be pleased that they will no longer have to drive some 20 minutes to get to a large retail hardware store. Home Depot is currently the closest such store and is located next to the Super Walmart on Cattleman between Bee Ridge and Proctor. There is also a Lowe's store located at Fruitville and Cattleman. The new Lowe's on Palmer Ranch is a welcome addition.
