Lowe's has been quietly testing a partnership with Seattle-based Porch.com at 139 stores since January, and it now plans to roll the service out to all 1,707 U.S. stores on Monday. Shoppers at Lowe's stores who are looking for landscapers, electricians and other local help for home-improvement projects will be able to access Porch.com's directory in the store via kiosks, smartphones and in-store computers.
