Lowe's home improvement to close 20 stores

(KFVS) - Lowe's home improvement announces it will be shutting down 20 stores in 15 states.

None of the affected stores are in the Heartland.

More than 1,900 people will lose their jobs.

Ten stores shut down Sunday.  The other 10 will close in the next month.

The company says closing these underperforming stores will allow them to focus on more profitable locations.
