I went in to get a paint sample and did a short survey about the paint department and received a $20.00 gift card for my five minutes of survey time. I was able to get a few more samples and a plant as well so it was a great list as i cost me nothing. the paint department was very quick in getting my my paint mixed. great time, thanks.

Sales associates in the appliance department were very helpful when we had a problem with the dryer we had purchased. However, when a manager got involved, to our surprise and disappointment he took away our military discount (about $100) because the dryer we bought was already marked down. It's ironic that Home Depot will not give veterans our normal discount for Veterans' Day sale items!

I was thrilled to find that this store had the LG washer and dryer in stock and in white! I went right in and had Chad and Ken help me. Both were very helpful and friendly. Everything was taken care of quickly and delivery was on my chosen day. Great washer and dryer (4270 and 4271). Love them!

I brought in a project that needed some really creative, out-side the box thinking and a "can-do" attitude. I found both in D...an associate. I can't believe my luck in finding just the person who could take a challenge and run with it. D... solved all the hardware issues and I ended up with a project not only completed, but more creatively than I had imagined. Thanks so much, D.... You are the best!

Everyone is always so helpful here. I pretty much have the store memorized because it's so organized. I am a stay at home mom of three just trying to make my little Cardiff house better. HD helps me do that. I like to go to some of the mom and pop shops, too. But for bigger purchases, I love using the HD Credit Card no interest for 6-18 months, so it doesn't effect our household cash flow to buy bigger things. Also, a home organizer, so too easy to pop in and grab what I need. Self check out is the best. I hate the parking lot though.

We moved to SoCal from Madison, Wisconsin where we used 60% less water than the average Madisonian household. We got a water conservation kit with awesome shower head and aerators at Home Depot for all of our faucets for less than $20, very happy. Would have appreciated more ideas and suggestions of how to save more water... Maybe there aren't more products? Water saving nozzels for outdoor hoses? Ways to conserve in the toilet tank? Buckets to catch shower water (City of Oceanside suggestion)? Classes to show others who don't already know?

It took two trips to the store to buy paint. I had the old bucket and colorant recipe still on the can. On the phone I was told the paint was still sold and all I had to do was bring in the colorant recipe which I did along with the old can. At the store I was told by two people (one called the paint expert) that the paint color was not made anymore and I had to bring in a paint sample for matching. I returned home and cut a hole in my wall to obtain a paint sample which meant I now was not only doing paint touch up, but also wall repair. When I brought the piece of wall in, a different sales person looked up the paint name and said he did not need the sample and could easily make the paint which he did. If the first people I dealt with could have done that, I would not have had to make two trips or have the extra work of patching a wall in addition to painting it.
