Join Planalytics for our Spring Weather Impacts for DIY & Garden Retail Webcast

Even with the unprecedented and very challenging COVID-19 crisis affecting everyone, the weather will be a driver behind consumer purchasing, and changes in the weather during the key spring period will have a direct influence on traffic for the hardware, home center, and garden retailer sectors. Lawn & garden maintenance and household projects will happen, given the number of people staying home. Please join us to hear how earlier or later warmth, precipitation changes, etc. will impact sales performance across different regions and categories. Learn where the opportunities may be stronger as well as when less favorable conditions will introduce sales risks.

Topics include:

  • Overview of Weather-Driven Demand and how this metric is used to quantify and manage the weather’s impact on sales
  • Review of weather sensitivities (the % of sales directly related to changes in the weather) for key DIY, lawn & garden, and outdoor product categories
  • Outlook for the core spring season highlighting weather-based sales impacts to watch for over the next couple of months.
