On Home Depot's acquisition of Home Decorators Collection, The Home Depot has agreed to acquire Home Decorators Collection, a St. Louis-based online and catalog supplier of rugs and home decor. This renowned Home Depot brand carries a wide array of home furnishings, including bedroom, office, bathroom, dining, and patio furniture, as well as lighting, curtains, and other home decor items. Moreover, this brand hits the ideal mix between quality and reasonable rates, making it a worthy investment for your home. In addition to its more traditional Home Decorators Collection brand, Home Depot also sells StyleWell, a budget-friendly collection of more contemporary furniture and decor. This business offers bedroom, kitchen, and dining room furniture, in addition to mirrors, lanterns, and bookcases, among other ornamental elements. Midway in 2006, Home Depot purchased Home Decorators Collection. The Home Depot is one of the leading home improvement retail firms in the United States with stores in all 10 Canadian provinces and 32 Mexican states. It sells appliances and building materials through its direct-to-consumer division The Home Depot Direct. The brand has also become a household name in the realm of internet purchasing. The corporation has also been known to make daring decisions such as its acquisition of the industry's first textiles catalog The Company Store. Home Depot has also acquired Soft Surroundings. The corporation is currently investing billions of dollars into its physical operation with approximately 2,200 stores staffed by its 400,000 employees. The agreement announced on May 7 would add over 65,000 new items to Home Depot Direct's catalog. Home Depot is also able to negotiate better pricing for the products it purchases due to operational efficiencies. Home Depot will join Home Depot Direct. The company has not fully exited the Chinese market but is taking a wait-and-see strategy while concentrating on strengthening its core business and investing in additional warehouses, distribution facilities, and supply chain hubs. Home Depot plans to provide same-day or next-day service to 90 percent of the U. S. population. This means consumers will be able to obtain giant, bulk, and special order items on the same day they place their orders. Additionally, the business is extending its capacity to supply goods directly to construction sites. Home Depot's ambitions to increase the number of specialist stores in China was difficult despite its success in the United States and Canada. Ted Decker, a spokesperson for Home Depot stated that the company's Chinese operations accounted for less than one-third of yearly net sales. China is a "do-it-for-me" market according to the company's standard line but Home Depot discovered that Chinese stores function differently than their American counterparts and that their products were too low-end for Chinese buyers. Instead of focusing on supercenters, Home Depot's plan for entering the Chinese market is to emphasize speciality stores which cater to the purchasing interests of the Chinese client prior to this Chinese consumers had limited exposure to Home Depot and were mostly interested in do-it-yourself projects. Whether your aesthetic is farmhouse, contemporary or glitzy StyleWell is likely to have something that fits your interests and budget according to Home Depot. The acquisition will increase the size of the home decor category on Home Depot Direct by adding about 65,000 new products and 185 new worldwide sourcing partnerships. This brand's bedroom and bathroom decor is available at Home Depot as well as British firm Laura Ashley's sophisticated and feminine materials and Eddie Bauer's home collection which includes quilts sheets and bedspreads. Upsart NicheCanvas presents a comprehensive selection of wall art for any home or workplace with over 5,000 available products.
