Sears has long had a reputation for not selling as many home goods as the larger American furniture chain.
However, recent reports have suggested that the company is struggling to keep up with the ever-changing needs of consumers.
Some of those consumer demands include more outdoor furniture for the home, an increase in outdoor decor and more decorative lighting, according to the Associated Press.
The company recently announced that it was going to invest $100 million in new, smaller facilities for its home goods business.
The moves are part of the company’s effort to grow its business while also diversifying its products and services.
The new building is the latest addition to the companys home goods footprint, which includes its furniture, bedding, lighting, and accessories.
As part of that push, the company recently added a third floor to its home furniture department to accommodate a third of its employees.
In addition, Sears is expanding its home-repair business to include appliances and electrical.
But as a home goods brand, Sears has always been an afterthought for many consumers.
And the company has struggled to attract new customers, even when the company launched a full-fledged online store earlier this year.
