Customers at the North Regina, Saskatchewan Lowe’s store will find a reason to smile when they come into the store. They will be greeted by Owen and his service dog Blue, both wearing company vests.
Owen had been having trouble finding a job because of a brain injury and his need for Blue as a support dog. But now they both will be greeting customers.
This looks like a win-win-win-win. Owen gets a job, Lowe's gets a loyal employee, Blue gets to greet people, and the public can learn more about service dogs. Although Blue is friendly, calm and compassionate, he will still be a working dog. The public is advised to ask before attempting to pet him.
Lowe’s company motto is “Never stop improving, ”
And that starts right at the front door of this store in Canada.
Way to go, Lowe's.
