This store has great employees for the most part. Most of them will bend over backwards to help you whether it results in a sale for the store or not. There are a few "lazies" as is the case everywhere, but they are a teeny-tiny minority at this store. Home Depot, the mega-corporation chain store, is not so great. They carry low quality products at high quality product prices so this is a problem at this store like every other in the chain. Fortunately for the Home Depot Yucca Valley, they have no real competition having put the other hardware stores in the area out of business by offering lower prices than could the local Ma-Pa hardware stores. Still when time is not an issue I always buy big ticket or quantity products online. I get MUCH higher quality at the same or lower price even with shipping and usually only have to wait a few days to get what I want.
