Now I have only being posting redesigns, etc., I decided to tear out the Lowes menswear store and build it as a stand alone shop to go in the place of the Ford dealership which will get it's third redesign next week. :wink:

I haven't decided if I should sticker the blue section along the front roof section or the white panels above it ? :wink:
Comments etc., welcome as always ! :classic:

Great hangers you have done there!

As for the blue section or white panel "stickering", i think maybe shorter the depth of the blue section or change to an awning and "sticker" the white panel. if not, just lower the white panel and "sticker" the blue.

btw how do you close the store? can't seem to see any door/roller shutter.

and finally (to semi-quote u): brick on, LT!  :laugh:

Thanks for the reply 'streifen', actually I'll be using a trans-blue 6 wide wall element as the door when it's closing time ! :wink:
To make things a little clear of sorts.....

The Lowes store in Wagga Wagga.

But mine design is similar to the store in Albury N.S.W., though it does have some elements from the Chatswood store as well.
Sorry, I'm unable to find images of these two stores, though you can find them via Goggle Maps.
Brick On everyone ! :wink:

I'll be working on stickering this and the IGA supermarket plus the Mitre 10/Retravision store too - just a few old signs to be attached. :grin:  
Keep watching ! :wink:

I should explain about the additions inside the store, yes...they are the towels and shelving from my Target store...why ?
Lowes doesn't just sell menswear (including shoes and underwear), but some sell woman's and children's wear plus sounds a little odd, but towels and just towels....no sheets or pillows ? :blush:
The extra signage will be going on today.....once I have resized and cropped the images. :blush:
Keep watching ! :wink:

You can also use the 'edit' button a bit more. :thumbup:

The store looks great to me, I think it's a challenge to put so many things inside a cramped space.
Are you planning to add a staff coffee corner too?

Thanks for the feedback 'Captain Blackmoor', yes trying to cram as much in a MOC as possible without stuffing it up is tricky. :wink:

I like the fact that this is a real store and you used the stickers and logo for the MOC  :thumbup: . Do you happen to sell any pirate or soldier clothing  :laugh: ?

Excellent store, this looks very similar to a typical Menswear store here in England.
I adore the curved trans-blue pieces at the front - adds brilliant detailing!  :thumbup:

That was sent to me via Facebook, I had uploaded a few shots of the menswear store bearing their name.
I'm wanting for them to contact me so I receive my gift. :sweet:

Thanks 'HighFlyer' and 'Robbie', I'm now waiting for an email from Lowes...good I'll need another pair of jeans or perhaps a nice jacket or pair of shoes....oh, I'll have lots to choose from. :sweet:
I just remembered I must come up with a custom/or tossed together female minifig....if it was male I would have to make a Mr. Humphries (I'm free !)....oh, that's all my town needs - camp follower ! :iamded_lol:
Keep watching for my update with staff inside. :drunk:
