Home retailers lead the sales charge

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The monthly sales tally from the U.S. Census Bureau showed gains in February – sales were up 1.1% from the previous month, and up 6.5% from the same month last year.

Leading the sales charge are businesses classified as building material & garden equipment and supplies dealers – NAICS code 444, inclusive of home centers and hardware stores. No other kind of business tracked by the bureau has grown faster in the first two months of 2012. 

On an unadjusted basis, NAICS showed a 15.5% increase in the first two months, compared to the same period a year ago.

In 2012, NAICS 444 adjusted sales were estimated at $27.036 billion for February, up 1.4% from the previous month, and up 13.8% from the same period last year. (Sales are adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes.)

Menards eyes Canadian border town

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Menards plans to open a new superstore in Port Huron, Mich., putting the home-improvement retailer right on the U.S.-Canadian border, according to an article in the Times Herald

The Port Huron Area School District is selling the Wisconsin-based retailer a former middle school property for $3.4 million; the deal is expected to close in November. 

The new store will be built as a 240,000 sq. ft. unit, according to the real estate broker for the school district. He added that the company anticipates serving Canadian as well as U.S. customers. “[Menards] believes strongly in the Canadian traffic coming over the (Blue Water Bridge),” said Steve DeLacey. 

Some of the issues that still need to be resolved are the environmental impact of the store, rezoning the property and working with the Michigan Department of Transportation because of the site’s proximity to the expressway.
