CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Picture this -- you're doing your home improvement project and you're missing the one thing you need to complete it. Be it a hammer, a screwdriver, a couple of two-by-fours... but the idea of driving all the way to a home improvement store sounds exhausting.
Now, Lowe's can come to you.
Lowe's and Instacart announced that same-day delivery is available at more than 1,700 stores. The items ordered can be delivered in as fast as an hour.

If your barbecue-loving dad needs a last minute gift, you could order him a small, portable grill straight to your door. As long as it doesn't exceed 3x3x5 feet and 60 pounds, it could be delivered to your door.
