Many Retailers, From Belk To Home Depot, Retire The Annual Columbus Day Sale

It seems as though the annual Columbus Day Sales promotion has finally run its course. Retailers have largely abandoned the event. Once a profit generator for department stores and downtown shopping districts, the Columbus Day Sale has become a liability.

The depiction of an explorer who enslaved and brutalized native inhabitants of the West Indies brought Columbus front and center during recent demonstrations. Many no longer celebrate Columbus as a skilled navigator and the discoverer of America.

The controversy behind Columbus Day is nothing new and has been brewing for several decades. But after a year that included calls for social reform, the removal of statues and monuments, and retail sales declines and closures, 2020 became the year to retire the Columbus Day Sale.

Last October, Belk, the Charlotte-based department store company, held its annual Columbus Day Sale but its sale circulars did not feature the promotion’s name in bold print. Belk has abandoned the annual event completely this year. At Belk, it’s now the “Feeling Fall Sale.”

By the late 1970s, the Columbus Day Sale transitioned from a clothing sale to a home improvement promotion. Home Depot, Lowe’s
LOW
, Ashley Furniture, and many more home retailers advertised the Columbus Day Sale tradition up through, and including, 2019. But Home Depot and Lowe’s have retired the Columbus Day Sale for 2020.

However, “Rooms To Go” has elected to hold a Columbus Day Sale this year. The retailer operates over 150 furniture stores throughout the southeastern United States, Texas, and Puerto Rico. Janis Altshuler, Senior Vice President at Rooms To Go, says, “Rooms To Go opted to keep Columbus Day as the name for the event because that is the federal name of the holiday and we wanted to avoid confusion. This certainly will be considered in the future and no decision has been made for 2021.”

Altshuler explains why it remains an important sale for furniture retailers. “Traditionally, federal holidays, especially those that turn into 3-day weekends, make for good furniture shopping times for consumers. Since furniture is a considered a large purchase, it is advantageous to have multiple family members be able to shop together and having Monday off extends that opportunity.”

In recent years, department stores, once the cornerstone for the annual event, have steadily abandoned the Columbus Day Sale name. Dillard’s eliminated the annual promotion in 2009. Macy’s did likewise in 2017.

The Columbus Day Sale had little purpose other than to be an October promotion. The year’s sales trends often dictated the nature of the sale. Retailers used it as a clearance event for summer stock when back-to-school figures

Is Home Depot a Safe Bet During the Pandemic?

With fiscal second-quarter sales growth of 23.4%, it’s safe to say Home Depot (NYSE: HD) has performed quite well during the coronavirus pandemic. As an essential business, the home improvement behemoth was able to keep its doors open to serve the needs of millions of shoppers.

Is Home Depot a Safe Bet During the Pandemic?

Its stock price has risen 30% so far this year, driven by impressive results from the do-it-yourself (DIY) segment. But for Home Depot to position itself for long-term success, its Pro business is the key.

Pandemic-fueled growth

From fiscal 2009 through fiscal 2019, Home Depot’s sales increased at a compound annual rate of 5.2%. The company has largely left its store growth unchanged with less than 50 net additions in that 10-year period, but management introduced initiatives like the One Home Depot strategy to boost efficiency within its existing store network. The company has reported positive comparable-sales growth for 10 years running.

Then, the coronavirus pandemic took hold earlier this year, closing down large swathes of the U.S. economy and at the same time creating an advantageous environment for Home Depot. With Americans stuck inside their homes, many chose to prioritize home improvement projects over other leisure and entertainment spending that has not been available in 2020.

In the quarter ended Aug. 2, the company generated record-breaking sales of $38.1 billion. Supported by government stimulus measures, including deposits of $1,200 made to most Americans’ bank accounts, Home Depot’s DIY segment outpaced its Pro segment in the quarter. The money not spent on dining out and travel instead went toward fixing up the home.

Professional customers

The success with the DIY customer is promising for Home Depot, but its future relies on the Pro segment. In 2017, the company began a multiyear, $11 billion program to bolster its digital offerings and to improve its Pro customer experience. These customers are vital to Home Depot as they provide the retailer an opportunity to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with professional contractors and property developers that lead to repeat business.

The Pro customer usually makes larger and more frequent purchases, and Home Depot has the opportunity to generate more revenue from this relationship over time. The company sees a significant market opportunity with the Pro segment and has built a comprehensive ecosystem to serve its specific needs. This includes inventory management, volume discounts, best-in-class sales teams, and online business solutions. Pro customers currently represent about 45% of the company’s top line.

Although the Pro market has lagged DIY in recent months, revenue did grow double digits year over year in the fiscal second quarter. Property owners were reluctant to undergo major projects during the pandemic since safety was the main focus: Allowing outsiders into the home to complete renovations or other upgrades did not seem prudent.

However, Ted Decker, executive vice president for merchandising, said during the most

Tornado-damaged Home Depot is rebuilt and ready to open a year later

Just shy of a year after a tornado destroyed their Home Depot, employees who escaped being hurt are ready to reopen a rebuilt store that incorporates the home improvement retailer’s latest ideas.

The new Home Depot opens Thursday at its original spot on Forest Lane just east of North Central Expressway. Ten tornadoes on Oct. 20, 2019, caused $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses in Dallas, Richardson and Garland.

Store manager Jonathan Shields said about 50 of his former employees are back, and the store has hired another 150 people and plans to add as many as 50 more.

Three of Shields’ four assistant store managers returned, including Jordan Jasper, who made the fortunate call to send his co-workers home early on Oct. 20 after hearing the weather forecasts and likely saving some lives.

Jasper was honored at a ceremony attended by 500 area Home Depot employees a week after the tornado hit. He was awarded the store’s U.S. flag that survived the damage.

“We’re getting many of our associates back in the building, and we’ve developed a tight bond after going through the experience,” said Shields, a 17-year Home Depot veteran who was manager of the store for a year before it was hit.

After the tornadoes, Home Depot placed its employees in 14 stores that were closer to where they lived, and many of those workers decided to stay at those stores. Part of Shields’ job initially was to reach out to former employees and meet with their new store managers.

Some former employees who aren’t coming back have been promoted, including one assistant store manager who has moved to a warehouse job, Shields said.

A team usually comes in from corporate for Home Depot store openings, working with vendors and making sure merchandise is flowing in for the opening. Much of that work was done remotely with the store’s staff due to the pandemic.

Home Depot is one of the retailers that has benefited from the stay-at-home lifestyle. Both sales and profit increased about 25% in the second quarter, and digital sales doubled from a year ago. Customers picked up about 60% of their orders in stores.

The new store is built for speed, Shields said. The front of the store has two areas where online purchases can be picked up, one just for professional customers.

The store’s appliance showroom is Home Depot’s newest design, and floor and backsplash tiles are in one spot so shoppers can see how materials match up.

There is LED lighting throughout the building and in the parking lot where area residents have been regularly stopping by to ask when the store would reopen, Shields said. “We know contractors started shopping in other stores, and they’ve been telling us

Home Depot Names Merchandising Chief Decker President and COO

Home Depot  (HD) – Get Report named a new president and chief operating officer — Edward Decker, who currently is its executive vice president of merchandising.

Decker, 57, earlier had held the post of senior vice president of retail finance, pricing analytics, and assortment planning at the Atlanta home-improvement chain. He joined Home Depot in 2000. The president and COO positions are new at Home Depot.

Home Depot shares recently traded $276.56, down 0.4%, on a down day on Wall Street. The stock has advanced 55% over the past six months as consumers, locked down during the pandemic, put a lot into fixing up their homes.

In addition to Decker’s appointment, Ann-Marie Campbell has been named executive vice president of U.S. stores and international operations. She adds responsibility for all operations, business functions and strategy for the Canada and Mexico businesses.

And Jeff Kinnaird has been named executive vice president of merchandising, reporting to Decker. He was previously president of Home Depot Canada.

Morningstar analyst Jaime Katz is bullish on Home Depot.

It “continues to benefit from a still stable housing market along with improvements in its merchandising and distribution network,” she wrote in a commentary last month.

“Its flexible distribution network will help elevate the firm’s brand intangible asset, with faster time to delivery improving the do-it-yourself … experience and market delivery centers catering to the pro business. 

“The success of ongoing initiatives should set the operating margin back on an improving trajectory in 2022, as investments wind down.”

Katz nonetheless sees the stock as overvalued, putting its fair value at $200.

Home Depot Has Long Dominated America’s Newest Pastime: Home Improvement Projects

It all started with a firing—a very foolish one.

In 1978, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank were executives at Handy Dan, a home improvement chain based in Southern California. Despite the business being very profitable, the pair had begun to tinker with a new idea. By lowering prices, they found, the stores’ volume shot up, making Handy Dan even more money. The executives had planned to implement that strategy systemwide, but they never got the chance. Corporate raider Sanford C. Sigoloff—who liked to call himself the “Skillful Scalpel”—took over the company, and deciding to save himself two salaries, got rid of Marcus and Blank.

That one decision probably prevented Handy Dan from becoming America’s home improvement leader. Instead, that honor would go to a place called The Home Depot.

Recruiting investment banker Ken Langone and retailer Pat Farrah, who’d run National Lumber and Supply Company, Marcus and Blank opened up a one-stop warehouse destination with everything a homeowner could want, staffed by knowledgeable salespeople and all selling at discount prices. 

“We believed from the start that if we brought the customer quality merchandise at the right price and offered excellent service, we could change retailing in the United States,” Marcus said in a 2008 interview with Entrepreneur.

As we know, they did just that. The first Home Depot opened in Atlanta in the summer of 1979. By years end, there were three more. Home Depot officially became the largest home improvement retailer in America by 1990, and today it has nearly 2,300 stores.

In recent months, Home Depot has been America’s go-to home center in ways it never imagined. After the pandemic sealed much of the citizenry behind closed doors, Americans made home improvement into a new national pastime. For Q2 2020, the chain’s net sales soared more than 23% to just over $38 billion.

During the quarter, “our DIY customers were reengaging with their home and with The Home Depot,” said evp of merchandising Ted Decker. “While we saw strong demand with exterior projects like building decks, sheds, fences and gardens, we also saw strong growth with interior projects like hard surface flooring, interior lighting and painting, to name a few.”

After focusing on building stores for years, The Home Depot has since shifted its efforts to fortifying its distribution capabilities as part of a $1.2 billion strategy to expand same-day and next-day delivery to customers. Meanwhile, the company’s One Home Depot initiative seeks to create an “interconnected shopping experience” that laces digital and physical commerce together.

It’s all a far cry from the single location that opened its doors in Atlanta 42 years ago. And yet, at its core, the brand hasn’t changed so much.

“The Home Depot concept is to provide the most complete assortment of lumber, building materials and home improvement products, competitively priced in a service-oriented retail situation,” Marcus has said. And online or off, pandemic or not, it still does just that.
