Lowe's Home Centers, LLC to Pay $1 Million in Overcharging Settlement

Lowe's Home Centers LLC will refund more than $1 million to customers who were overcharged flooring installation fees, according to a settlement reached with New York state. Lowe's, overcharged 16,000 customers with a deceptive sales practice that it has since agreed to halt.

Under the agreement the company will return up to $1.1 million in cash refunds and pay $900,000 to the state for its investigation. New York customers who paid the fees from 2009 to 2012 are eligible.

Marin Judge Orders Lowe's Home Centers to Pay $1.6 Million Settlement

Lowe's Home Centers has been ordered to pay $1.6 million to settle a lawsuit by prosecutors from Marin and four other counties alleging inaccurate and misleading advertising, the district attorney's office. The settlement, ordered by Marin Superior Court Judge Paul M. Haakenson, is the culmination of a civil enforcement action filed in Marin Superior Court and led by the district attorneys of Marin, Los Angeles, Monterey, San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. It was alleged Lowe's stores throughout the state unlawfully advertised structural dimensional building products for sale, such as lumber, using incorrect product dimensions. In some instances, Lowe's advertisements restated misleading or inaccurate product dimensions provided by the manufacturers or suppliers. Under the settlement, Lowe's is required to immediately remove products from sale or correct false, misleading, deceptive or inaccurate product descriptions. Lowe's must pay $1.47 million in civil penalties and costs of the investigation. An additional $150,000 will be paid to fund further consumer protection-related activities including quality control and price verification programs conducted by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The store will be bound under the terms of a permanent injunction prohibiting similar future violations of law.
