BRAMPTON, Ont. — Canada’s newest Home Depot store features a number of new or enhanced features, including an expanded appliances department.
Sears, once the leader in white goods, continues to falter on both sides of the border. Insiders at both Home Depot and Lowe’s have said that they see a great opportunity to increase their respective market shares in heavy appliances. Home Depot reported strong sales from this category in its third quarter, based in part on heavy promotional offers. The stores in Canada recognize a similar opportunity.
