Lowe's is legit, but the're the big box store. I buy a lot from Lowe's, but beware on there appliances! They'll go for about a year and then give out. If you use there appliance protection plan you can get covered beyond the appliance manufacture warranty. Only problem with that is if your appliance goes bad and they don't have the parts in stock you might wait awhile till they get it fixed. Ours went 6 weeks before they got it fixed. And a lot of food went bad! You can go to your Lowe's store and ask for a loaner.
