Green LBM Store to Open Near San Jose

A startup company that hopes to build a chain of green LBM showrooms has announced the site of its first store, called “New Home,” in Dublin, Calif., just north of San Jose. The initial 30,000-sq.-ft. store will be located in a former Good Guys electronics unit. New Home will offer more than 200,000 eco-friendly products in 38 categories, according to a press release. The retailer hopes to model itself after Home Depot and Lowe’s, in terms of low prices and shopping convenience, it said. Ultimately, New Home is planning 25 stores throughout California, many of them occupying vacant class A retail buildings. The Dublin store is scheduled to open in January 2010.  09/17 HCN
