Lowe’s Gains From Home Improvement Business & Online Sales

Home renovation and maintenance activities have been gaining prominence lately, thanks to increased stay-at-home practices amid the coronavirus pandemic. The trend has been benefiting certain home improvement market players, including Lowe’s Companies, Inc. LOW. This apart, the company’s efforts to expand digital offerings is worth appreciating. These upsides were well-reflected in the company’s second-quarter fiscal 2020 results, with the top and the bottom line improving year on year. Let’s dig deeper.

Bright Prospects in Home Improvements Market

Growing inclination toward home improvement projects is quite visible in Lowe’s second-quarter fiscal 2020 results. Comparable sales (comps) for the company’s U.S. home-improvement business increased 35.1% in the second quarter, following an increase of 12.3% in the first quarter.

In the reported quarter, comps gained from sturdy project demand from DIY and pro customers across channels, product categories and geographies. It saw comps growth of more than 20% across all its merchandising divisions, while all the U.S. geographic regions posted comparable sales increase of at least 30%.

Industry experts point out that that consumer spending on home improvement products are likely to remain favorable in the near term. Safety concerns and continued work-at-home practice amid the pandemic have compelled individuals to stay inside. As a result, DIY projects for remodeling, decorating as well as maintenance of furniture and fixtures are being widely undertaken. We expect Lowe’s to keep gaining from such trends.

Digital Investments are a Key Growth Catalyst

Lowe’s is investing toward boosting its omni-channel operations for a while. When shopping preferences began witnessing a major shift with the onset of the pandemic, Lowe’s accelerated its efforts to expand digital offerings. In this context, the migration of Lowes.com to the cloud as well as the roll out curbside pickup helped the company sustain online growth.

We note that the company has been building upon its in-store technology and delivery network over the past 18 months to support elevated DIY and Pro customer demand. Markedly, sales at Lowes.com increased 135% in second-quarter fiscal 2020, as the company’s pro and DIY customers increasingly shopped online. This drove online penetration to 8% of sales.

Moreover, the company is focusing on further enhancing capabilities such as online-delivery scheduling and order tracking as well as search and navigation. Moreover, with rising demand for contactless services, Lowe’s latest investment in self-service lockers is another feather in its cap. More than 60% of the company’s online orders are picked up in stores. Hence, broadening pickup options are a worthwhile strategy for the company for creating a frictionless shopping experience for time-pressed customers.

Well Lowe’s isn’t the only company in the home improvements space striving to gain from consumers growing digital inclination. Other players such as Home Depot HD, Fastenal FAST and Beacon Roofing Supply BECN are also gaining on the back of prudent digitization efforts.

These Stocks Are Poised to Soar Past the Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak has shifted consumer behavior dramatically, and a handful of high-tech companies have stepped up to keep America running. Right now, investors in

Pandemic boredom prompts Halloween decor spree online, on Instacart and in stores

NEW TAMPA — When Target restocked a two-story cardboard haunted house for cats, Megan Copello ordered it immediately for curbside pick-up.

For the last month, Copello’s package deliveries have arrived almost daily. Boxes are packed with witch’s cauldrons, spooky village miniatures and porcelain pumpkins. The 41-year-old is the first to admit she has a problem, but she’s not sorry about it. She has always loved Halloween, but spending more time at home during the pandemic has supercharged her decoration obsession and online holiday shopping.

“I think it’s a mix of boredom dealing with everything,” Copello said. “It gives the this sense of comfort of the holidays coming. It’s Halloween, then it’s Thanksgiving, and then Christmas and then this year is finally over.”

COVID-19 has pushed retailers to build up their digital, pickup and delivery systems to meet increased demand in contactless shopping. Now pop-up seasonal store, Spirit Halloween, is partnering with Instacart to deliver its items like the app does groceries.

Related: Halloween candy still hitting shelves early, despite pandemic

Copello’s office is still closed. She works in corporate event planning, so her whole work life has been upended by COVID-19. Decorating has been an outlet.

“We believe the magic of Halloween is transformative,” Spirit CEO Steven Silverstein said in a statement about the Instacart launch. “This year, more than any other, we need the escape that Halloween brings.”

That National Retail Federation’s annual Halloween spending survey taken in early September found that shoppers plan to spend about 4 percent more on Halloween decor than they did last year. Copello said she has noticed items in-store selling out faster than usual.

“I got a giant pumpkin door greet from Sam’s (Club) three weeks ago,” Copello said. “We went back to Sam’s the next day and no more Halloween stuff, like they couldn’t keep it in stock.”

The retail federation estimates Halloween spending will reach $8.05 billion this year, which is down from $8.78 billion the year before. The dip is expected because fewer people plan to celebrate due to the virus. But those who are celebrating are spending, on average, $92.12. That’s almost $6 more than last year.

Copello is well above that spending average and she suspects her neighbors are, too. She said seeing others going all-out this year inspired her to keep going, too.

“I have nowhere else to put Halloween decorations,” Copello said. “I’m at capacity.”

But when Aldi put out some new Halloween items on Wednesday, she couldn’t resist picking a wreath and a pair of plastic skeletons dressed as a bride and groom.

She’s still waiting on light-up witches to arrive in the mail for her outdoor setup. Her lawn decor, though packed with skulls, tombstones and skeleton gnomes, is still only half complete.

Get in the Spirit! The Best Halloween Decor You Can Buy Online Right Now

We may be living in fraught times, but that doesn’t mean Halloween is on hold. Check out these decor items for the most boo-tiful holiday of the year.

Published


Halloween is going to look quite a bit different this year. The coronavirus pandemic has put the kibosh on costume parades and door-to-door candy hunts in many communities across the nation.

In fact, according to the latest research from Morning Consult, 47% of families will be canceling their usual holiday parties altogether this season, and that includes Halloween celebrations.

While your annual Halloween bash might be postponed to 2021, you can still bring the spooky vibes in a number of other ways. We fully endorse stocking up on all your favorite fun-size candy and planning a scary movie marathon. But there’s no better way to bring the spirit of All Hallows Eve to your home than by decorating.


To help you in this frightening endeavor, we’ve gathered a whole host of festive and stylish (and weird) items. No tacky decorations here! Just seasonal accessories that’ll stand the test of time and can get you and your family into the bone-chilling Halloween mood this year. After all, you need a break from the real-life scares of 2020, right?



Outdoor decor

Luminary bags are a great, festive addition to the front of your home.

Spirit Halloween


Ana Cummings of the eponymous design firm recommends maximizing your Halloween decor by placing it where it’ll get the most attention.

“I like to decorate the pathway and garden beds that lead up to my house, especially with gravestones and hands and bones sticking out of the dirt,” she says.

Check out these faux headstones ($49+, Etsy) made out of styrofoam and painted to resemble the real deal. Stick these skeleton hands ($11.99, Target) in your front lawn. We also love the look of luminary bags ($6.99, Spirit Halloween Headquarters) lining an entryway.


Skull planters

Try these ghoulish plant holders on a mantel.

Lowe’s

Continue your decor efforts in high-traffic spots just inside your door, such as the foyer, a hall table, or in the family room. These skulls planters ($8 each, Lowe’s) are ideal picks since you don’t have to fuss over the low-maintenance succulent plants they hold. Instead, you’ll be left with lots of extra time to cook up some Halloween treats.

Purple pumpkin

A purple pumpkin is a chic addition to your Halloween decor.

Grandin Road

Sure, pumpkins are usually orange, but for something a little more sophisticated (and a lot stranger), look to darker shades like purple and black.


“Purple and green colors are great stand-alone options this year or as add-ons to the traditional orange and black scheme,” says Caroline Harmon, Lowe’s trend manager.

A lavender gourd ($39, Grandin Road) like the one above is covered in resin beads and gold accents. Consider getting several to

Buying a Home You’ve Only Seen Online: What You Need to Know

Not only can you buy a house you’ve only seen online, as a real estate investor, you might prefer to do so, at least once you have a system in place. Buying homes online has actually been a strategy for people buying investment property for some time, particularly if said investment property is in an area not local to the investor. And with the coronavirus on the scene, more people have adopted the process as they have become used to doing business virtually, plus not physically going into homes addresses safety concerns.

Buying a home online can speed up the acquisition process, saving you time to plan your next investment opportunity. Here’s what you need to know.

Set parameters for searching

Determine the niche you want to market to for this investment property. This includes price range, home size, location, and any other parameters you deem important.

For example, your niche could be a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home under $200,000 located near a college or university so you can rent to students.

Note that although having some parameters is good to narrow down your market, having too many will make it harder to find the right deal. So limit your parameters to make it easier for yourself.

Check out the neighborhood — virtually

With online house shopping, you probably won’t be familiar with the neighborhoods. But you can find out all the information you’ll need — you guessed it — through online searches. You can get employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, income ranges from Sperling’s Best Places, school ratings from Great Schools, and crime statistics from AreaVibes, all from the comfort of your own computer.

Learn to analyze the property

As with any investment property, whether you’re buying remotely or in person, you need to analyze it to help determine whether it will be a moneymaker for you. There are many formulas for rental properties to determine this. The fastest one investors use is the 1% rule, meaning you should be able to make 1% of the home’s price in monthly rent to make the deal worthwhile. So for that $200,000 property, you’ll want to get as close to $2,000 a month as possible.

If you have a favorite method of running the numbers, use it for your online deals just as you would with any other deal. You can determine what the property will likely fetch in rent by conducting an online search to see what similar area homes are renting for.

Determine what you’ll offer

This step is the same as an offline deal as well. Investors routinely offer less than asking price, but doing so remotely presents more of a challenge if you don’t know the local market and conditions: Is it a buyer’s or seller’s market there? It’s important to find this out so you’ll know how much less to offer and still get the deal. A real estate agent will be a great help with this step.

Put the home under contract
