Home Improvement Sales Up On Year
News from WETM-TV:

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WETM-18) – Home improvement sales are way up this year. Many of you are choosing to do it yourself.

Employees at the Do It Center in Horseheads say more people are buying things for their homes this year. According to an IBM study, online sales of home improvement merchandise were up almost 30 percent in the last two months, compared to this time last year.

“What we’re seeing is more people are staying in the area and working on their homes, bringing them up to date, instead of looking for new homes,” said Jeff Weaver of the Horseheads Do It Center.

“For the stuff that they can do, the smaller stuff, I think it’s okay for a person to do it themselves,” said Greg Wickham of Horseheads, who was buying some home supplies. “The do-it-yourselfer has a place in his own home.”

Store employees say people are working on roofing, siding, painting, plus adding new windows and doors. Many are also trying to make their homes more energy-efficient.
