          Super friendly store
          I have always received great customer service from this store. The garden dept has very informative employees. The few times I've needed paint, they have answered all my questions so I can get my project completed. I recently bought a fan plus a drill and the sales associate was very helpful, reaching a high, heavy box and putting it in the cart for me and making sure I had the right tools for the job.

              Every time I go into the Lake Forest, Home Depot location. The employees are extremely helpful. From the paint department to the checkout line, everyone is extremely helpful and will always put a smile on your face.

                Outstanding customer service
                All items in stock. Angel P. did an outstanding job locating and pulling stock of Milwaukee power tools that were locked up. I have been to other locations and sometimes dealing with the locked tools can be a very time consuming experience. Angel P. saved me a ton of time and was extremely professional and customer oriented.

                  Another great Home Depot experience
                  LAST WEEK we were in a hurry at the El Toro store, in the shower accessories department, and couldn't find the item the website said was in stock. This HD employee came down the aisle, answering questions from two other customers, and recognized our look of urgency, and without missing a beat, while still helping the other folks, checked stock, found our item on a high shelf, and while still helping three other people, and answering questions, brought over a ladder and retrieved our desired item. Multi tasking at it's finest. Then TODAY, I had a question about a chip read error at checkout yesterday, and Lindsey took my call without hesitation. She was friendly, courteous, answered my question, and solved the issue WAY beyond my expectations. I gotta say, we like this store, good people, five star customer service.
