RETAIL CONTACTS

RESEARCH STRATEGY

We began our research by reviewing the corporate information for Target, Restoration Hardware, JoAnn, and Michaels. We hoped that the corporate website would provide email and phone information for the listed contacts. While each company provide biographies for their top executives, they did not provide direct contact information. We next looked for each contact on LinkedIn, some people will provide email addresses on LinkedIn, or a link to personal websites, unfortunately none of the contacts provided this information. Finally, we performed a press release search to see if any of the contacts had provided direct contact information in the media. As we were unable to find any direct contact information we turned to Hunter.io and found all the email addresses via this website.

Retail Contact List, Rows 16 - 29

The requested information for the contacts listed in rows 16-29 of the attached project spreadsheet has been provided. Information provided includes a contact email in column C and phone number in column D. Source links have also been provided in column F.

FINDINGS

  • Emily Trent is the SVP marketing at Home Goods and Homesense. Both HomeGoods and Homesense are subsidiaries of the TJX group. Her email is emily_trent@tjx.com.
  • Caren Sinclair-Kay is the President at Dormify. Her email is caren@dormify.com.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

To fulfill this request, we commenced our research on the company websites for each of the listed contacts, but quickly noticed that the contacts were either not listed on the team page of the website, or their contact details were not listed. To go around this, we made use of third-party email finders such as Hunter.io and Voila Norbert. We have provided screenshots of each contacts email in a Google doc. At the end of our research, we were unable to identify any direct phone numbers for the listed contacts even with third-party email finders. In this case, we provided the company's corporate phone number in column D.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

We began our research by exploring the corporate information for West Elm, Pottery Barn, Bloomingdale's, Hayneedle, Anthropologie, Container Store, Wayfair, and Serena & Lily. We hoped that their corporate websites would provide email and phone information for the listed contacts. For the companies that are subsidiaries of larger companies, we also reviewed the websites of their parent companies. While most of the companies provided biographies for their top executives, they did not provide direct contact information like emails and phone numbers. We only found company phone numbers.

We then looked for each contact on LinkedIn, some people will provide email addresses on LinkedIn, or a link to personal websites, unfortunately none of the contacts provided this information. Finally, we performed a press release search to see if any of the contacts had provided direct contact information in the media. As we were unable to find any direct contact information, we turned to Hunter.io and Voila Norbert and found all the email addresses.

It should be noted that Mo Mullen is no longer VP, Business Development at West Elm, she left West Elm in April 2018. She is currently Managing Director at 10X CEO. Hence, the search for her email through the portals of West Elm and Williams-Sonoma, West Elm's parent company, was unsuccessful, but when we searched for her email using the portal of 10X CEO, it was successful.

Contact information was found for most of the employees listed for Pier 1, Home Depot, Lowes, Nordstrom, and Ethan Allen.

Research Strategy:

We began our search by looking through LinkedIn for the contacts provided. We were successful in finding all the contacts on LinkedIn, but we were not able to see any emails or phone numbers for them. In this step, we found that some contacts had moved on to new jobs. We took a note of these ex-employees' new positions, new companies, and new cities, where applicable.
Next, we reviewed the company websites for each contact for employee information. Home Depot and Lowes had pictures of some of their employees on their sites, including contacts on this request, but no contact information was given. We tried to find phone numbers for each that we found on the website, but that was also unavailable. To remedy this, we searched email and phone locator sites such as Hunter, Zoominfo, and Rocket Reach. We also searched information portals such as Yahoo Local and Google Maps, and social media sites such as Facebook. We were unable to find the contacts on the email and phone locator sites, but we were able to find contact information on some of their Facebook pages. We also found some information on Yahoo Local and Google. There were some more that were missing so we switched strategy again.
In this strategy, we reviewed news portals such as Business Wire, Bloomberg, and PRN News Wire Sports for articles and press releases for the companies listed in this report. We found articles about new business deals, new employee press releases, stock and earnings information, and a few interview articles. We were successful in finding two older articles that contained contact information. Even with this success, there were some contacts whose information we could not find. Hence, we filled in corporate numbers for them and used the Hunter app to fill in the most likely email adresses for the missing contacts. We ended our search and entered all required information into the spreadsheet.
