Good reasons to unplug anything not in use. Back in a previous lifetime, bought a used car. Went into Kitchen to do paperwork. Guy had a charred countertop, and cupboard above was burned. He had come home to find his toaster was plugged in, and had shorted out for some unknown reason, and started a fire.

I think it was the first Lowes in the Raleigh area, and around 20 years ago. There was a Home Depot very close, also the first in the area. Visited the HD, then several others when they were built later. No satisfactory visits with HD, which killed any desire to shop there. Always been satisfied with Lowes.
