In the last decade, Home Depot and Lowes have seen their appliance sales grow considerablythats especially the case at Lowes, which in 2013 finally toppled longtime category leader Sears( SHLD ) as the countrys number-one appliance retailer, according to TWICE magazine, a trade journal. Lowes says appliances make up 14% of its sales (Home Depot would not provide a specific breakdown). Getty Images In many ways, say retail analysts, Home Depot and Lowes are benefiting from Sears overall slide as a retailerthe chain has closed close to 100 of its U.S. stores in the last year. Plus, given the size of most home improvement storesthe typical Home Depot is about 100,000 square feet (or double the size of your typical grocery store)theres plenty of room to stock those appliances.

Weve taxed seniors, eliminated (some of) the earned income tax credit and given massive corporate tax breaks, Greig continued. Weve cut our schools, our communities. Its time to get balance back in our policies. If elected, she said she would streamline tax polices to meet the states needs. The states infrastructure roads, bridges, a coordinated water system, regional transportation need attention, Greig said.

Done By Greg Robb 2 hours ago 0 shares Content preferences Done WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – One of the Federal Reserve’s leading doves downplayed recent higher readings on inflation on Tuesday, saying he expects the price level to stay below the central bank’s target for several more years, possibly even until 2018.While inflation has climbed over the past three months and is now up 1.8% over the past year, “many large fluctuations in [the personal consumption expenditure index] inflation end up being purely transitory,” said Narayana Kocherlakota, the president of the Minneapolis Fed, in a speech to the Minnesota Business Partnership. “I currently see the probability of inflation’s averaging more than 2% over the next four years as being considerably lower than the probability of inflation’s averaging less than 2% over the next four years,” he said. Low inflation means that resources are being wasted, Kocherlakota added, notably in the form of unemployed workers. “There is still significant underutilization of our country’s most important resource – its people,” he said.
