Download Product Catalog Data from Lowe’s
Legally scrape data from the Lowe’s Product Search & Browse Feature using our HAR file web scraper. It should be stated that Lowe’s deploys a number of anti-scraping technologies to prevent automated bots behind proxy farms from scraping their data. This is why this page shows you how to bypass all of that and instead leverage the official Lowe’s website to scrape the data for you - all perfectly legally as you will not be violating the Lowe’s Terms of Service using our tool.
To get started, simply begin recording your web traffic via the instructions stated on this page for the HAR file web scraper (just open your browser’s developer tools). Next, go to the official Lowe’s website and run a search for the products you want to scrape. You can also apply filters and take advantage of all the features Lowe’s offers for its users for the sake of scraping their data. Once your search is showing you the products you want to scrape, keep browsing and paginating through the results so that Lowe’s keeps loading more and more structured JSON data (containing the raw product data) into your browser, all 100% compliant with the Lowe’s Terms of Service.
Once you’re done browsing, click the Export HAR button in your browswer’s “Network” tab under developer tools. This will generate a HAR file containing a recording of all the precious data that Lowe’s worked so hard to prevent you from scraping. The trick now is getting the data out of that HAR file and where our service comes into play. Simply upload the HAR file here and we will securely process it, allowing you to download CSV files containing the same data you just browsed via search results. This method is good for scraping broad categories of search results, but will not work if you need to look up specific product details or in-store inventory, as it requires you to manually visit each and every product and store combination which is not feasible.
