Tubs/Fixtures, etc From Big Box Stores EXACT Same as
...what the manufacturer sells? Back in 2002 and then again in 2007 we did some major remodeling. I learned back then that often times manufacturers made products specifically for that store (say Lowes or Home Depot). The quality suffered as the products were made with cheaper components for the discount savings those stores offer. I learned that the manufacturer number may be just one number or one letter difference but that was the way to tell if the product was made for the store. Does this still hold true for today? Can I assume that if a product I find in Lowes has the exact manufacture number as the product's website, that I don't have a cheaper version made for Lowes?
