Home Improvement Spring 2023 Preview
Demand, Inventory, Margin & Merchandising Strategies
Join CRC’s Home Improvement team on Friday, March 24 at 12:00 pm ET when they host a webinar sharing what we see in our work as the most important themes and insights from the first 75 days of 2023.
CRC’s Home Improvement Council Director, Matt Leiser, and CRC’s Executive Director of Advisory & Consumer, Ginny Tredway, will outline the latest consumer trends when it comes to private label and manufacturer brands, and how the shifting trends are more evident within homecenters than other retailers.
Key topics we’ll discuss include:
- 3 key themes from Home Depot and Lowe’s 4Q earnings calls
- YTD insights on demand, inflation/price elasticity, and inventory
- Latest insights on homecenter merchant priorities and shifts in merchandising strategy in response to market pressures
- Vendor best practices to maximize share of shelf opportunities, protect margin, and be best positioned for 2H23 and 2024
- Questions you need to be considering when it comes to private label and the brand landscape
Registration will ensure you get the full slide deck, audio replay, and real-time audience polling results we’ll send out after the call.
