Lowe's adds more services with Porch

Lowe's (NYSE:LOW) has extended its partnership with Porch to provide installation and assembly services to its home design and decor subsidiary, ATGStores.com.

In 2011, Lowe's acquired ATGStores as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary and continues to operate it as a stand-alone company. ATG – All That's Good – offers home decor, furnishing and design services, and now it will offer assembly and home repair services through Porch.

Both Porch and ATGStores are located in the Seattle area and are incorporated into Lowe's online offerings.

The Porch Retail Solution is a services platform that connects homeowners with home improvement professionals. Lowe's first partnered with Porch in 2014 and features the option in all 1,720 of its stores and online.

"The rules of retail are changing. Customers are looking to get their projects done from start to finish. Together with ATGStores.com, Porch can help provide a world class shopper experience that helps get every project done and every customer satisfied, " said Porch CEO and chairman Matt Ehrlichman. "For the past three years, Porch has been focused on building a quality and responsive supply network for homeowners."

"Our partnership with Porch is a valuable asset and another way we provide personalized care and solutions to both our DIY and professional customers," said Jay Rebello, VP of emerging business at Lowe's. "By offering the Porch Retail Solution on ATGStores.com, we believe customers will find the additional support they need to complete all of their home improvement projects."

Lowe's has been expanding home services including connected home products and end-to-end solutions – like the Lowe's Holoroom – to help shoppers through the planning stages to installation.
