Moultrie - Lowe's brings 110-new jobs to Moultrie, and Home Depot brings 95. The store managers say being located next to one another adds an extra dose of friendly competition. Dwayne Brown, Home Depot Manager says, "It's going very well so far. Mike and I work well together, so far. I mean, we're going to have that competition, and I think that's a good thing to have."

Mike Daniel, Manager of Lowe's, says, "With us being able to bring new jobs in, it's made a good feeling with the people in the community, so we're real proud of it, very proud."

Both stores are still hiring new employees.
