After years and years of trying to stay away from the e-commerce side of retail, HomeGoods will soon go online so you can shop for decor without leaving your house!
HomeGoods, which is owned by TJX Companies, chose not to move online this year due to COVID-19 even though many of their stores had to close their doors in the early months of the pandemic. While some re-opened, several stores have remained closed because of revenue loss.
CEO Ernie Herrman told TJX investors recently that HomeGoods’ move online will “satisfy our customer base and attract new shoppers.”
Earlier this year, according to The Wall Street Journal, Herrman said the company “would not look to e-commerce as our major leveraging point to get us through COVID and out the other side,” but has since changed his tune. It is likely because of rising coronavirus cases that could possibly force store front to shutter once again.
While HomeGoods does currently have a website, it does not have a function for shoppers to purchase items. Online shopping will be available the second half of 2021.
