Sparks, NV - You've probably been watching them build it right off of Interstate 80. On Thursday, that new Lowe's hardware store in Sparks opened at the Outlets at Legends.
Doors opened to the public at 6am. The store has 103 square feet of retail space and features more than 40,000 items. It replaces the old Lowe's in Sparks on Oddie Boulevard, which closed on Wednesday.
"It's new, state of the art, great location and we've got everything anybody's going to need when it comes to home improvement," says Steve Schoenberger, store manager.
As for workers, this location is fully staffed right now, but it's looking to hire more people later on.
"We're currently at about 150 employees. We'll peak out in season at about at about 170. The base that we currently have comes from the store that shut down and we look to be hiring about 20 when we hit spring this year," says Schoenberger.
