Maureen Hizaka Celebrates 25 Years at the CHHMA
 
On May 1st, Maureen Hizaka celebrated her 25th anniversary at the CHHMA. Chairman of the Board, Mike Wilson honoured Maureen by presenting her with a gift at the Toronto Golf Tournament at Angus Glen on May 28th. This event was chosen for the occasion because it is the largest gathering of members during the year. Maureen began her career as a part-time employee working on the Western Show which at the time was owned by CHHMA. Her hard work and dedication soon led to her becoming the show manager, a position she held until the show was dissolved in the late 90’s. Following that she was named the Director of Operations, a position she has held to this day.

In making the presentation, Mr. Wilson commented on Maureen’s high level of enthusiasm, dedication and hard work. He said “it is not uncommon for a member to receive an email at 8:00 or 9:00 at night from Maureen reminding them of an event or meeting that they have not signed up for and usually attend”. That type of dedication and passion shows a love for the job and a loyalty to the association and our members.

Congratulations Maureen and a sincere thank you from all of our members for 25 great years.

CHHMA Welcomes New Member Company        
 
The CHHMA Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Liteline Corporation has recently joined the association.

Liteline Corporation was established in 1979 on a simple principle: Find a niche and do it well. In the late 70’s there was a need for an aftermarket lens replacement for fluorescent fixtures. Since every fluorescent fixture was built with slightly different dimensions it was exceptionally difficult for electrical distributors to be able to supply replacement lenses. Steve Silverstein, Liteline’s founder and president offered distributors the simple service of small run custom fabrication with quick delivery. 30 years later, Liteline is the industry leader in custom lens fabrication in Canada.

Today, the company manufactures complete lines of residential and commercial lighting fixtures, HID security lighting, lamps, die cast aluminum outdoor boxes, wiring devices and of course lenses and louvers. Their head office is located in Brampton, Ontario in an 80,000 square foot facility and they have a second distribution warehouse in Vancouver, B.C.

 
CHHMA Toronto Golf Tournament Recap 
 
The 44th Annual CHHMA Toronto Golf Tournament took place on May 28th at the Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ontario. Although the weather was a bit cool and wet at first, the rain did stop after a while making the playing conditions much nicer. There was an excellent turn-out of CHHMA members and retailers and a fun day was had on both the North and South courses
followed by lunch and prize presentations.

The winning scramble team was comprised of Jason Hutton (Salton Canada), Taylor Simms-Brown (Jascor Housewares Inc.), Frank Querido (Sears Canada) and Bruce Watton (Sears Canada). The ladies low net score was by Wendy Hanson (Neatfreak Group) and Brian Carter (Apex Tool Group) had the men’s low net score.

We would like to thank everyone for participating in the Event Passport Competition which raised money for the Ontario Special Olympics and all the companies that sponsored holes and provided product for prizes and giveaways.

Hardlines Acquires Outstanding Retailer Awards
 
Canada’s premier awards program for home improvement dealers has a new home. The Outstanding Retailer Awards (ORAs) are now owned and managed by Hardlines Inc. Hardlines, which publishes the quarterly hardware/home improvement trade magazine Hardlines Home Improvement Quarterly (HHIQ) and the weekly e-newsletter HARDLINES, has purchased the awards from Hardware Merchandising.

The annual ORAs began in 1992 to recognize excellence in merchandising and retail performance. The ORA ceremony has been held during the Hardlines Conference for the past decade. This spring, Hardlines Inc. purchased the rights to the program from Hardware Merchandising, which inaugurated the program when Michael McLarney, now editor of HARDLINES, was editor of that magazine.

“Some of the greatest retailers in Canada are hardware and home improvement dealers. These awards are an important way to ensure they get the recognition they deserve,” said Michael McLarney, editor and president of Hardlines Inc.

“We are pleased to see the ORAs continue uninterrupted and to know that the integrity of the program will be maintained by its founder, Michael McLarney,” said Robert Koci, associate publisher, Hardware Merchandising.

The ORAs will be presented at the Annual Hardlines Conference, October 23-24 in Toronto. Hardlines’ purchase of the awards completes the Hardlines Conference program. The call for entries to the Outstanding Retailer Awards is effective immediately. For complete application information, please visit http://www.oras.ca .


Sears Joins Retail’s Real Estate Push 
(Article by Marina Strauss, The Globe & Mail)

Struggling to make sales gains, more retailers are looking to bolster their bottom lines by milking the land beneath them.

Sears Canada Inc. plans to build a $1 billion office and condominium tower complex on 3.6 hectares of property it owns in Burnaby, B.C., part of a wider strategy among merchants to try to cash in on healthy real estate values in an increasingly competitive retail market. It joins a growing group of retailers rushing to unlock the value of their properties during a time when real estate values remain strong.

Both grocer Loblaw Cos. Ltd. and Canadian Tire Corp. have announced plans to spin off much of their property in real estate investment trusts (REITs) that are estimated to be worth more than $7-billion and $3.5-billion, respectively.

Toronto-based Sears has applied to the city of Burnaby for approval to redevelop the land, including one of its department stores that is tied to the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre.

Sears will unveil details of the project within the next few weeks, Calvin McDonald, chief executive officer at Sears Canada, said in an interview on Monday with the Globe & Mail.

Costco Continues No-Frills Expansion
(Article by Hollie Shaw, The Financial Post)

While many retail industry players anxiously watch Target and Walmart racing to expand their store networks across Canada, Costco Wholesale continues to build its presence here as a quietly indomitable retail giant, with plans to build up to 25 more of its vast warehouse stores.

“Our goal is to get to about 110 [stores],” Louise Wendling, senior vice-president and country manager at Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd., said after a presentation with Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal at Retail Council of Canada’s Store 2013 conference.

“We still have a lot of opportunity in Ontario and some of the provinces out West,” she said, citing Montreal, Toronto, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Winnipeg as viable locations for further expansion.

In Canada since 1985, the 30-year-old Seattle-based company has 10-million cardholders here who pay $55 a year for shopping privileges at the bulk-buying behemoth’s 85 warehouse stores, and has managed to operate virtually without competition in Canada since its inception. (Walmart closed six of its rival Sam’s Club stores here in 2009 after they failed to catch on).

But unlike Walmart and Target, it never advertises, and relies on consumer word-of-mouth to spread news about its deals on electronics, apparel and brand-name goods. The company is now the second-largest retailer in the U.S. behind Walmart and fourth-largest in the world, with 627 stores and US$101-billion in sales.

“What they do, they do very well,” said shopper marketing consultant and conference attendee Lauren Booth. “They are consistent and very no-frills about what they deliver to customers, and ultimately they have great product for the price — people come in for deals, but they also do a lot of impulse buying because they know that the meat they get will be good, or that the spring jacket won’t fall apart.”

In an era in which most retailers are mining data about consumer preferences in order to get an edge on competitors, the company’s merchandising strategy is also refreshingly no-frills.

“We don’t have marketing strategies and management strategies and all of these complicated things,” said Ms. Wendling.

“We are an item business, so it is very simple: you take an item, you bring in an item, you put it on a pallet in one store. After one day, if it doesn’t sell like mad, it’s gone. It’s not rolled out.

“We could go through all of the data we have and all of our membership base and see what trends people are buying and that would take weeks and weeks. We are not into this analysis stuff as much as maybe traditional grocery stores are — we are just very simple.”

The simple formula seems to work: in the last fiscal year, total Canadian revenue rose 12% to $15.7-billion, up from $14-billon a year earlier. Membership renewal rates are 90%, and in the most recent third quarter earnings per share rose 18% while total sales were up 8%, and same-store sales were up 5%. Chief financial officer Richard Galanti said Canada and Mexico had the strongest same-store sales of its international markets.

Mr. Sinegal, Costco’s co-founder and former CEO who retired last year, told the conference that Wall Street criticism about low margins on goods and some of the company’s other unorthodox practices, such as paying employees higher wages and giving richer benefits than other retailers, has quieted over the years as Costco became more profitable.

“One of the things you have to remember about Wall Street is that they are in the business of trying to make money between now and next Tuesday,” he said. “We are in the business of trying to build a business that will be here 50 to 60 years from now.”

While it is too early to assess any impact from Target’s entry into Canada, Ms. Wendling said the competition is positive for consumers and it keeps Costco in check. “We adjust to the competition if they price below us or below cost,” or make a decision to discontinue the item and simply roll in another deal on a pallet.


 
Economic News


Building Permits Up Unexpectedly in April  

Statistics Canada reported on Wednesday that Canadian municipalities issued building permits worth $7.0 billion dollars in April, up 10.5% from March. The advance in April was the fourth consecutive monthly increase. The recent upswing came after a downward trend in the total value of building permits that began in the fall of 2012.

The advance in April came largely from higher construction intentions for multi-family dwellings in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.

Economists had forecast a 3% decline in April, according to the median forecast of 11 responses to a Bloomberg News survey.

Emanuella Enenajor, an economist at CIBC World Markets, noted that Statistics Canada revised the initial March numbers downward Wednesday, but said the second quarter appears to be shaping up to be stronger than the first quarter.

“Note that this series tends to be choppy, although today’s data release suggests that despite softening condo-building activity, construction there could be set for one last hurrah,” Enenajor said in a research note.

“Overall, today’s number suggests that despite a slowing trend in homebuilding, condominium construction still has some steam left. That could support Q2 residential activity somewhat, after the sector’s drag to Q1 GDP.”

Statistics Canada said construction intentions for residential dwellings rose 21.0% to $4.4 billion. It was the second straight monthly increase and the highest level in 10 months. All provinces posted gains except Alberta and Nova Scotia. These two provinces had posted large increases in March.

In the non-residential sector, the value of permits fell 3.6% to $2.6 billion, following two consecutive monthly gains. Declines were recorded in five provinces, with Alberta and Ontario posting the largest decreases. New Brunswick registered the largest increase, followed by Quebec and British Columbia.

Construction intentions for multi-family dwellings rose 51.9% to $2.1 billion, a second consecutive monthly advance. This gain was the result of higher construction intentions for apartments and apartments-condominium in eight provinces, led by Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec. Alberta and Nova Scotia posted decreases.

The value of building permits for single-family dwellings increased 1.1% to $2.2 billion in April, the third increase in four months. Gains in British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario more than offset declines posted in the other seven provinces. Alberta had the largest declines, followed by Nova Scotia.

Canadian municipalities approved permits for the construction of 19,377 new dwellings, up 33.0% from March. This increase was attributable to multi-family dwellings, which rose 58.3% to 13,168 units. The number of single-family dwellings, however, fell 0.6% to 6,209 units.

Non-residential building permits were down in April, as an increase in construction intentions for commercial buildings was not enough to offset declines in the institutional and industrial components.

Construction intentions for institutional buildings fell 27.2% to $715 million, following a 119.2% increase the previous month. Despite this monthly decrease, the total value of institutional building permits continued the upward trend that began at the end of 2012, albeit at a slower pace.

The decline in April was mainly attributable to government buildings in Alberta, medical buildings in Ontario and educational buildings in Saskatchewan.

The value of permits for industrial buildings decreased 5.3% to $450 million, following two consecutive monthly gains. Decreases occcurred in six provinces, led by Ontario, where it was largely attributable to manufacturing plants. Other notable declines came in utilities and primary-sector buildings in Saskatchewan.

In the commercial component, the value of permits rose 15.8% to $1.4 billion, following a 19.3% decrease in March. Gains in four provinces, particularly Alberta, offset the declines in the remaining provinces. Office buildings in Alberta and Ontario accounted for most of the advance.

The total value of permits was up in six provinces in April, with British Columbia in the lead, followed by Ontario and Quebec.

British Columbia posted the largest advance, as a result of higher construction intentions for multi-family dwellings and, to a lesser extent, institutional buildings and single-family dwellings.

The gain in Ontario resulted primarily from higher construction intentions for multi-family dwellings, while in Quebec, multi-family dwellings and industrial buildings were behind the increase.

The largest declines occurred in Alberta and were due to lower construction intentions for institutional buildings and, to a lesser extent, residential buildings.

First Quarter Economic Growth in Canada Fastest Since 2011
 
A surge in Canadian oil exports to the U.S. helped propel the country’s economy in the first quarter to its fastest growth pace since 2011, even as domestic demand expanded at the slowest rate since the 2009 recession.

Real GDP grew at a 2.5% annualized pace from January to March, the fastest in six quarters, after a revised 0.9% gain in the fourth quarter, Statistics Canada said last Friday. By comparison, real GDP in the United States grew 2.4%.

In March alone, GDP rose by 0.2%, following 0.3% gains in each of January and February.

Most economists had predicted that first-quarter GDP growth would be in the 2.2 to 2.6% range, after recent trade figures showed a rebound in Canadian exports.

"With final domestic demand up only 0.6% in Q1, exports drove almost all of the gains, with that sector up 6.2 per cent," said economist Emanuella Enenajor of CIBC World Markets.

"While government goods and services spending was also surprisingly firm, growing at a 2-per-cent rate, government capital spending fell by a 2-per-cent pace. Offsetting those gains, residential construction fell by 4.7 per cent while non-residential business investment ticked up mildly by 0.7 per cent. The household sector was somewhat soft, with consumption up by a mere 0.9-per-cent annualized pace. Inventory restocking was a positive for growth."

Ms. Enenajor believes the second quarter will see growth of about 2% annualized.

The Bank of Canada has officially projected that for all of 2013 GDP growth will clock in at around 1.5%, but that forecast was made before the stronger performance of the first quarter became apparent. In 2012, overall GDP growth was 1.8%, well below 2011’s 2.6% expansion and the even more hefty 2010 increase of 3.2%.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development last week projected that the Canadian economy will grow 1.4% this year, a reduction from its last estimate, in November, that GDP growth would hit 1.8% in 2013.

"While Canada’s economy packed on a few more pounds than expected in Q1, it’s still stuck in slim-growth mode," said chief economist Douglas Porter of BMO Capital Markets. "We don’t expect a break-out in Q2, but a firming U.S. consumer/housing backdrop points to slighter healthier gains later this year and into 2014."

Exports were the largest contributor to growth in the quarter. Export volumes increased 1.5%, after a gain of 0.2% in the fourth quarter of 2012 and declines in the previous three quarters. Imports were up slightly by 0.3%, after falling 0.8% in the previous quarter.

Canadian oil producers ramped up shipments to the U.S., taking advantage of new pipeline capacity and rebounding from temporary maintenance shutdowns that curbed output last year, to help the country rebound from the slowest six-month expansion since the recession.

There was a “mini-boom in Canadian oil exports to the U.S.,” David Watt, chief economist at HSBC Bank Canada in Toronto, said before the release. He cited increased production and the reversal of the Seaway pipeline last year by Enterprise Products Partners LP and Enbridge Inc., which moved more crude to the Houston area from Cushing, Oklahoma.

Canada’s share of U.S. crude oil imports rose to 38.7% in February, the highest in at least two decades according to U.S. Energy Information Administration data.

Crude oil export volumes jumped 8.2% to a record in the first quarter on a non-annualized basis, while natural gas exports were up 9.7% over the period, according to Statistics Canada data released before the GDP report.

Exports of energy products rose 21.9% in the first quarter on an annualized basis, Statistics Canada said.

Increased output in mining and oil and gas extraction helped lead growth in March, marking the third straight monthly expansion. 

Meanwhile, final domestic demand edged up 0.1% during the first three months, the weakest showing since the first quarter of 2009.

Consumer spending was up 0.2%, sustained by higher spending on services. Outlays on goods were flat in the quarter, while spending on services advanced 0.4%.

Clothing and footwear (+1.3%) and furnishings, household equipment and other goods and services related to the dwelling (+0.8%) were among the main contributors to growth in household spending.

Transport purchases fell slightly by 0.1% as higher outlays on vehicles (+0.4%) were offset by lower spending on vehicle operations (-0.2%) and transport services (-1.0%).

Consumption of electricity, gas and other fuels fell 1.1%, following strong growth in the second half of 2012. Spending on recreation and culture (-0.7%) was also down, following increases in the two previous quarters.

Expenditures by Canadians travelling abroad declined 1.3%.

Investment declined as business investment in residential structures fell 1.2%. New home construction declined and housing resale activity showed continued weakness. Business investment in plant and equipment was up 0.2%, following a 1.3% increase in the previous quarter.

Government final consumption expenditures increased 0.5%, in line with the previous quarter.

Businesses added $5.9 billion worth of goods to inventories, after adding $3.9 billion in the previous quarter.

Business investment in plant and equipment increased slightly by 0.2% in the first quarter, following a 1.3% gain in the previous quarter. Business investment in non-residential structures increased 0.4%, the second consecutive quarterly gain.

Business investment in machinery and equipment fell 0.2%, the first quarterly decrease since the third quarter of 2011. Industrial machinery and equipment (+0.6%) and medium and heavy trucks, buses and other motor vehicles (+1.4%) were the main sources of strength.

Business outlays on computers and computer peripheral equipment (-3.1%) and communications and audio and video equipment (-0.5%) were both lower.

Business investment in residential construction fell 1.2% in the first quarter, the third consecutive quarterly decline.

The value of new home construction fell 2.9%, the first decline since the first quarter of 2011. Renovation activity (+0.6%) increased for the third straight quarter. Ownership transfer costs (-0.5%) were down for a fourth consecutive quarter, indicating continued weakness in housing resale activity.

Compensation of employees rose 0.7%, the same as in the previous quarter, but weaker than the three-year average of 1.1%. Wages and salaries in goods-producing industries were up 0.5%, the slowest pace since the third quarter of 2009. Wages and salaries in service-producing industries rose 0.8% in the first quarter.

The household debt service ratio (7.24%), defined as household mortgage and non-mortgage interest paid divided by disposable income, remained at a near record low in the first quarter, reflecting continued low interest rates.

The national saving rate rose to 5.2% from 3.9% in the previous quarter. The increase resulted mostly from higher corporate savings. National disposable income increased 2.2%, following a 0.2% increase in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Canadian Housing Market Shows Signs of Downturn, Report Says             
(Article by Susan Pigg, Toronto Star)

Canada’s housing market is showing “ominous” signs of the same slowdown that hit the U.S. housing market before its devastating meltdown so it’s too soon to celebrate a soft landing, says a recent report from Capital Economics.

“Home building in Canada is on an ominous downward slope, similar in many ways to what happened in the early stages of the slump in the U.S.,” says economist David Madhani, who first predicted a downturn in house prices of up to 25% two years ago.

The housing market, especially Toronto’s condo market, has somehow defied the skeptics so far, with house prices flattening and condo prices declining just slightly since tougher mortgage lending rules were implemented last July. But Madhani says all signs are now pointing to a looming downturn.

“There seems to be this view that we’ve achieved a soft landing because everything is declining slowly, but the pace of decline is more or less in line with the early stages of the U.S. slump,” he said in an interview Friday after issuing his state-of-the-market note.

Canada’s decade-long housing boom is every bit the “credit-driven asset bubble” that has burst in the U.S., Spain and Ireland, he said. It is “premature to sound the all-clear siren for Canada.

“Like so many other developed economies that have experienced unsustainable housing booms over the past decade, Canada exhibits similar ominous symptoms of overvaluation and overbuilding,” his report says.

Housing starts have already declined significantly, interest rates remain low, and government belt-tightening will mean less hiring and fewer increases in pay. At the same time, Ottawa has tightened mortgage lending rules, making it harder for first-time buyers to break into the market, and the pressure to buy has eased considerably given that “the pace of house price appreciation has slowed materially and, in some markets, prices either have stagnated or already begun to decline,” says Madhani.

Investors, who have largely fuelled the boom in condo development in Toronto in particular, are highly unlikely to continue their buying spree for a few reasons: The rising inventory of units for sale, which may put downward pressure on prices over time; continued uncertainty over where the market, and prices, are heading; and rent yields, which have sunk to historic lows.

While developers have pulled back on new condo launches, and slowed starts on some that have already been announced, the inventory of new units is still likely to climb over the next year, “possibly to levels above those witnessed towards the end of Canada’s 1987-1990 housing bubble” when prices declined considerably, says the report.

“Although the higher inflation and interest rate environment that preceded the 1990s housing bust are not evident this time around, they don’t have to be. The classic symptom of oversupply is just as real as before.”

Madhani echoes economist Will Dunning, who this week predicted 150,000 Canadian jobs could be lost in construction and housing-related industries as the housing sector continues its slump.
