During the webinar, we ask and answer the following questions:
- How might changing US housing preferences impact the category with the next wave of home buyers?
- What is our outlook for DIY homeowner spending through 2020, and how does it compare to the last 8 years of the current housing cycle?
- How have shopping preferences and the retail landscape changed in the last 12 months?
- How do homeowners shop differently…by project complexity, product category and trip type?
- What are the best bets for vendors and retailers to make today to maximize upside with the DIY customer over the next 1-2 years?
