Business Looking Up At Lowe's?

While some look for signs of spring from robins and crocuses, others watch announcements from DIY stores, and it looks like Lowe’s is anticipating a solid season. The retailer intends to hire 45,000 seasonal employees beginning next month, and says that it also plans on adding 9,000 permanent part-time jobs. Profits have been improving at the Mooresville, N.C.-based chain, and in its most recent quarterly results, it forecast a comparable-store sales gain of 1% for its fiscal year.
