Description

WHO ARE WE?

Married-couple families occupy well over half of these suburban households. Most Home Improvement residences are single-family homes that are owner occupied, with only one-fifth of the households occupied by renters. Education and diversity levels are similar to the US as a whole. These families spend a lot of time on the go and therefore tend to eat out regularly. When at home, weekends are consumed with home improvement and remodeling projects.

 

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

SOCIOECONOMIC TRAITS

• Higher participation in the labor force and lower unemployment than US levels; most households have 2+ workers.

• Cautious consumers that do their research before buying, they protect their investments.

• Typically spend 4–7 hours per week commuting, and, therefore, spend significant amounts on car maintenance
(performed at a department store or
auto repair chain store).
