Home Depot Closing Landscape Supply Stores

BY CSA STAFF

Atlanta, The Home Depot Inc. is shutting down its Landscape Supply store concept as part of an effort to focus on its core retail concept.

Home Depot spokesman Ron DeFeo said the company would close six of the Landscape Supply stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and five in Atlanta by Nov. 19.

“We don’t have any plans to expand the concept and we feel these resources would be a better benefit to our organization if they were redeployed to our core retail stores,” DeFeo told the Dallas Business Journal Thursday. “We feel we can serve our current landscape customers through our traditional retail stores.”

Playboy Drops Anchor in London

BY CSA STAFF

London, Playboy will open its largest store to date, on Oxford Street in London. The three-story boutique is set to open this week to coincide with London’s Fashion Week.

The new store will mark Playboy’s return to London for the first time in more than 25 years. The Playboy Club on Park Lane was popular during the ’60s, and its casino, which closed in 1981, also ranked as the most profitable in the world at that time, the report said.

Playboy’s recent major expansion efforts have included new retail shops, casinos and an Internet social-networking site similar to Facebook. In 2009, the company will debut Playboy Mansion Macao, a 40,000-sq.-ft. entertainment venue.
