It remained largely abandoned until the War Relocation Authoritywhich oversaw the World War II incarceration program, took it over in It planned to use this facility to incarcerate ethnic Japanese, including American citizens from West Coast areas considered strategic to the war effort.
The current website includes information about the company and some store information, such as Hals woodworking and hours. Management is considering expanding the web site to include online shopping. Expanding will be necessary for the company to stay in business for the long term.
The company also has strong reputation of being providing high qualified service through knowledgeable staff.
That strength could be translated to the website if the inventory that the company offers on the website is tailored by the staff that knows the product. In doing that the customer could either buy it from the online store or go to the store with the knowledge of what they want.
That could lead to a no hassle experience for their valued customers and new customers. The store is local and will only showcase a limited selection of their products online.
Being a local presence the price points for the products will not compete with the bigger websites like Amazon and Home Depot.
But if the company wants to compete, lower prices will be needed which will cause a decline on profit margins for the products offered by the company. Currently the company offers classes and workshops for the homeowner and hobbyist each month and regularly schedules seminars that are underwritten and taught by manufacturers.
If the company could offer those videos on the website it could add even more value to high-end specialty tools currently being considered for the website.
In expanding to selling online it will lead to increased exposure and the increased web presence which could lead to increased sales that could help the company to eventually expand.
In order to reach their valued customers, it will be a threat for them to compete with big time companies like Amazon and Home Depot since these big companies already promote products at low prices. This could allow the company to be able to bid for lower prices of products and eventually sell those products to consumers at a lower cost.
Another recommendation includes having promotions, free products, or loyalty discounts for regular costumers that visit the website. This will help retain current customers and help gain new customers. Lastly an online membership could help the company monitor customer trends.
