MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have arrested the owner of a Mt. Juliet roofing company accused of scamming a Nashville homeowner out of nearly $1,200.
James Kenton, the owner of Tennessee Metal Roofing, was booked into the Metro jail Saturday on a felony charge of home improvement fraud.
According to an arrest warrant, a company employee completed an estimate for a new roof on a Nashville residence in late April. The representative quoted the homeowner $11,990 for the new roof, so he paid a $1,190 deposit and signed a contract, the paperwork states.
Following an inspection of the homeowner’s current roof, the resident told police he was informed by the company that his contract was no longer valid and a new contract would need to be completed with a “significantly higher” price. The homeowner said he refused to sign the new contract and requested a refund, but he
STEVENS POINT – Meijer won’t open next year in Stevens Point, but the company still plans to build a new store eventually.
Meijer purchased 28 acres of land in 2017 on the northeast corner of Portage County R and HH, near the shopping plaza that is home to Walmart Supercenter, Kohl’s and Lowe’s Home Improvement. According to city documents filed in 2019, the company was in its planning stages and started applying for sign permits. Documents at that time indicated the store would likely open in 2021.
Frank Guglielmi, the senior director of corporate communications for Meijer, told a Stevens Point Journal reporter the company still owns the land and plans to eventually build a store. Guglielmi said the company’s building schedule can be fluid, and it has no timeline yet for construction or opening. Meijer is currently focused on construction for its 2021 stores, he said.
Compiling a targeting strategy for a home remodeling company requires dividing the potential market into segments based on commonalities, selecting the segments with the best sales prospects and devising the most appropriate product and methods with which to approach each target segment. Statistics from market research organizations can provide you with the number of people who fall into each of the categories you identify.
Segmenting the Market
Segmentation involves identifying the group or groups of prospective customers that are most likely to need home remodeling services. This enables you to create a targeted, strategic marketing program. Visualize your company’s ideal customer, based on identifying demographic factors such as age group, income, marital status and home ownership. For example, students renting their first studio apartment are unlikely to need home remodeling, so segmentation should eliminate them as a group. Break the larger segments up into subsets based on specific needs.
Vireo Health, a Minneapolis-based cannabis company, has changed the name of its Minnesota Medical Solutions cannabis-patient centers to Green Goods.
“The Green Goods brand is the next evolution of Vireo’s continued commitment to providing patients with best-in-class medical cannabis products and customer experiences,” Dr. Kyle Kingsley, the firm’s chief executive, said in a statement.

Green Goods locations also will have on-site pharmacists and a “knowledge bar” for patients seeking information. The renovated shops will also be used for community engagement events, charitable giving programs, and
You’re spending a lot more time at home. And you’ve reached the point where you can’t turn a blind eye anymore. It’s time to renovate the bathroom. Or the kitchen. Or maybe both.
But where do you begin? There are a hundred decisions to be made. How do you find contractors you can trust? How do you choose from the seemingly endless options for tile, flooring, fixtures and colors—and where will you find the time to hunt them down? Will you need an architect, what about permits and approvals? And how long will you have to live in construction-project hell?
