Lowe’s Receives Smart Retail Solution
May 5, 2016
Porch.com (http://porch.com), a home services platform that connects homeowners to quality home improvement professionals, announced it is powering installation and assembly services to Lowe’s ATGStores.com through the Porch Retail Solution.
The Porch Retail Solution is now available to ATGStores.com customers in 25 markets nationwide, allowing homeowners to book home improvement assembly and installation as an add-on to their product selection. Assembly and installation for products such as lighting, furniture assembly and plumbing can now be added to the cart at checkout, triggering a convenient scheduling process with a local Porch professional.
“ATGStores.com is committed to addressing consumers’ home improvement needs from concept to completion,” said ATGStores.com President Michelle Newbery. “With the Porch Retail Solution, we are delivering a more robust service experience that makes online shopping and home improvement stress free.”
All Porch professionals used to complete jobs booked through ATGStores.com are local to customers’ geographic area and backed by the Porch Guarantee.
The Porch and ATGStores.com partnership made news earlier this year at the Seattle Showhouse, a high-end home renovation project that used furnishings and fixtures from ATGStores.com and assembly and installation by Porch.com professionals. The result was showcasing a designer-quality home from concept to completion using online tools.
The Porch Retail Solution implementation to ATGStores.com points to the expansion of the existing Lowe’s and Porch partnership, which brings Porch services into all Lowe’s stores nationwide and also includes advertising on Lowes.com. In 2011, Lowe’s acquired ATGStores.com as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary that continues to thrive as a stand-alone company.
“Our partnership with Porch is a valuable asset and another way we provide personalized care and solutions to both our DIY and professional customers,” said Jay Rebello, vice president of emerging business at Lowe’s. “By offering the Porch Retail Solution on ATGStores.com, we believe customers will find the additional support they need to complete all of their home improvement projects.”
