Expanded Clothing Department In MinotThursday, March 05, 2009 | Filed Under: News | Posted by Wade - CEO on 03/05 at 04:13 PM
Our goal at Home of Economy is to double our sales of work clothing in the next 3-5 years. That sounds pretty aggressive, but we've averaged 30% growth in the last two years. In order to do that we're going to have to devote more floor space to the work clothing. Our latest effort for that was to expand the clothing department in our Minot store. Here are some pictures of the final product. We're working with an older store here so I think they did a great job in upgrading our clothing department.
This is the heart of our Carhartt shop in Minot. Carhartt is a great line for us.
Here a shot of our Carhartt Jeans running back into the rest of the department. If you saw the department before you'd know that this is an huge improvement in shop-ability. Before the changeover the department was very jammed in.
Here's some of the new area. This is product that we've carried for some time now. We just opened up this area to be able to do justice to the product. In the background you see our workboots. Our business in workboots has been terrific the last few years. We need to look at some options of fixing up the floor in this area. Still we had to go to this step before we could worry about the floor.
