DANVILLE, VA - Lowe's Home Improvement spokesman says three managers at a Virginia store are "no longer with the company" for their involvement in fulfilling a customer's request that no black drivers deliver to her home. 

Lowe's spokesman Steve Salazar says the company reacted swiftly when it learned of the incident. Salazar says Lowe's has "no tolerance for discrimination of any kind."

Salazar didn't name the managers or specify whether they resigned or were fired.

Driver Marcus Bradley told WSET-TV that a Danville store manager ordered him off an Aug. 3 delivery at the customer's request. Bradley says he was told it was because he's black and the customer didn't want him at her house. Bradley says that when he returned to Lowe's, a white driver replaced him.

Salazar says an executive later apologized to Bradley.
