Went in the evening about an hour before closing when the store was quieter. There were plenty of staff busily working to prep the store for the next day who were all very willing to stop and answer questions or provide suggestions. Lots of inventory on the shelf, with more available on-line that can be delivered to the store for later pick-up (i.e., free shipping). With springtime beginning to bud, look for Deborah in the garden department for expert local advice. The experience starts with nice and wide parking spaces with wide lanes. (pay attention Vons).

I shop at this store frequently and have found they usually have what other stores don't carry. For instance they had a coil siding nailer that other stores don't stock, and their hours are super convenient for those last minute weekend trips. Ralph at this store one time helped me get 11 rocks for a sunday school project. I mean, who would help someone with 11 rocks?! The service at this store really is outstanding. Great work all around.

The selection at this store improved significantly after the expansion. However, the store still seems to be one of the more disjointed in terms of store layout. It just does not flow correctly. For instance, if you want to find toilets and vanities, and certain plumbing supplies you have to go to one section of the store. But if you want towel bars and other bath accessories, you have to go to another non-intuitive part of the store. The signage directing you to different places in the store is minimal. Finally, if you need to stop and get in and get out buying only an item or two, or if you have questions in any of their departments, this store is definitely not the place to go. After 4:30-5:00 pm the staffing appears to get paired back significantly. So you are pretty much on your own regarding questions and directions. And it's even worse when you try to check out. Typically, only one full service checkout lane is open, along with the self-service lanes. Unfortunately, many of the self-service registers are always closed, and many of the ones working do so only intermittently, or with caveats i.e. registers don't take cash, or registers don't take cash etc. If you are going to diminish the full service check out lines, at least make sure the self service lines work correctly and are reliable. None of that has ever been the case at Home Depot. Their registers seem to be junk hardware and software. In the end, I think Home Depot at it's core is a good company. I do feel however that they have gotten soft and are relying on past reputation and need to get an edge back along with a laser focus on the customer. For me, when I have to decide whether or not to stop for trash bags or some other item for the home on the way home from work. I think I am much more likely now to simply order from Amazon (even more than I already do) and let the items be delivered instead of having to endure a bad shopping experience or have my time wasted.

i spent more money to get a washing machine by friday. but today they called me and said they didnt even have the machine so the salesman lied to me to make a sale. the machine i orginally wanted i was told was out of stock and it had to be ordered. i need to wash my cloths soon so i went with the more expansive machine that was in stock just to get it soon. so now i have to go through the trouble of going out shopping again and waste the time your company took away from me the other day.

I visited both The Home Depot, Sears Outlet and Lowe stores on the same day and realized that: 1) More selections and availability of products selections as well as reasonable prices; 2) Prompt assistance from store employees; 3) The premises were clean; 4) Store associates showed genuine eagerness, courteous attitude in helping.
