Congressman Mooney explained, “I wanted to thank the good folks here for working so hard during the pandemic. As I mentioned to them, they are serving their community, and they are offering repair products that people want and need. It’s a blessing in disguise that folks have time to fix their homes up and do home improvements.”
He added, “They’re hiring here, trying to get more people employed. I understand this Lowe’s has a great reputation with the community, and the folks that are working here deserve to be thanked by their federal-elected official.”
