New Jersey reached an immediate emergency agreement with Lowe’s for access to construction supplies and equipment, the governor announced.
The emergency agreement with Lowe’s Companies Inc. will give state agencies and authorities access to thousands of products and supplies at a 5 percent discount, State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff said in a statement.
“Final terms on a permanent contract were more than a month away when Sandy began to form in the Atlantic,” he said. “Treasury took immediate action to accelerate talks with Lowe’s and negotiated provisions that will ensure that state and local government officials will pay discounted prices as they rebuild and restore communities devastated by the storm.”
