AJC | Lowe’s to plant itself in Atlanta’s core

The Home Depot store at Lindbergh Plaza will soon have a competitor across the parking lot. Lowe’s is planning to build a store where a Kmart now stands.

…”We are at war,” [Home Depot chief financial officer Carol] Tome said. “We will do whatever it takes to protect our turf.”

“We shall fight on the garden shop. We shall fight on the lumber yards. We shall fight in the parking lot, and in the streets, we shall fight in the peach trees. We shall never surrender.”
