The Home Retail Group swings in behind the campaign. As the UKs leading home and general merchandise retailer, this highly successful retail group has 1057 stores and £5.7 billion sales. In a statement it said:
"Home Retail Group (Argos, Habitat and Homebase stores) is pleased to support the Close the Door initiative. Acting responsibly is of course the right thing to do, but we believe it makes good business sense too. Driving down our carbon emissions, saving energy, building a great place to work in, and being a good neighbour in the communities in which we operate is intrinsic to our successful business. Close the Door sits squarely with this."
