Wal-Mart shuffles home merchants

Bentonville, Ark.—Wal-Mart said yesterday it is reshuffling some home merchandising responsibilities among its senior vice presidents and general merchandise managers.

Lucy Cindric, who formerly headed apparel, will now oversee seasonal and soft home, including bed and bath.

Paul Beahm is shifting out of soft home to cover the hard home division, including hardware, housewares, home furnishings, small appliances, lawn and garden, stationery and paint.

Cindric will be replaced in apparel by Karen Stuckey, who formerly worked with the New York trend office.

All three will continue to report to Claire Watts, executive vp of merchandising and apparel.
