Business Strategy and Outlook

| Jaime M. Katz |

Williams-Sonoma has carved out a solid position in the $750 billion global home category and the $80 billion U.S. business-to-business industry. It has historically launched most of its brands organically in underserved segments and its brand intangible asset has been the supporting factor in its top- and bottom-line growth. Its ability to drive repeat business relies on customer loyalty and smart marketing and merchandising and the firm has access to some of the best analytics in retail. This should help Williams-Sonoma outperform its competitors and grow its market share, aided by new category expansions.
