Can Lowe’s Overtake Home Depot’s Top Spot?

Where do you shop for home improvement projects? For many Americans, increasingly, the answer is Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW). Home Depot (NYSE: HD), a Dow Jones Industrial Average component and the largest U.S. home improvement retailer, benefited enormously from the recent positive trends in home improvement. But competitor Lowe’s did even better, and is right on its heels for the top spot. Can Home Depot keep its lead, or is it in danger of being overtaken by Lowe’s?

Why Home Depot needs to worry

Home Depot has been the leading home improvement chain for decades, being the first to create and expand its big box stores across the U.S. Annual sales came in at more than $110 billion in 2019, a 2% increase over the prior year.

Is This The World’s Most Luxurious Spot To Work From Home?

With Covid-19 forcing many of us to work from home, some have given extra latitude to the definition of home — both figuratively and literally. Tax issues aside, if your employer allows it and you have the cash to splurge, then you can a rather more luxurious approach on where you work.

As short term hotel bookings have taken a hit through the pandemic, the hospitality industry have been publicising long stay packages in order to stabilise the otherwise sporadic revenues of the current situation.

Step in the One&Only Reethi Rah Resort in The Maldives, whose advertised “Work and Stay” package aims to attract the well-heeled professional. These packages start at a cool $42,600USD for 28-nights for two guests on a half-board basis.

The Collier County School District is looking to the future for eCollier Academy only months after launching the virtual learning model during the coronavirus pandemic.

At a school board meeting Tuesday, board members voted unanimously to approve a remodeling project contract for one of Calusa Park Elementary’s buildings to service eCollier Academy staff, students and parents. 

The construction project was already underway prior to board approval because it was “time sensitive,” according to board documents.

The district provided students four school options for this year: on-campus, Classroom Connect, eCollier Academy and home education.

The eCollier Academy allows students to learn with flexibility so school work can start late or early in a day depending on a family’s home situation.

The remodeling of one of Calusa Park’s buildings, which has about five classrooms, and nearby area is costing the district about $830,000.

Richard Karn is probably best known for playing Tim Allen’s sidekick on the 1990s hit sitcom, Home Improvement. Karn appeared as Al Borland on 203 episodes of the series and managed to amass quite a fan base from it. In the end, Kahn’s character, Al Borland appeared in every single episode of the series, except for one. His role, however, was supposed to be much smaller. If things had worked out how the producers intended, Karn would have only appeared in the first few episodes of Home Improvement.

Richard Karn was only supposed to  be a stand-in

Karn’s entire life changed thanks to a traffic ticket and another actor’s previous engagement. According to Collider, Karn found himself sitting in traffic school after running a stop sign. As is often the case in Hollywood, the room was filled with other people in the entertainment industry. One of those people
