Home Depot EXPO is closing. The official news release on the Home Depot corporate website announced that Home Depot will be closing 34 EXPO Design Center stores. A quick check on the EXPO store locator web page confirms that Home Depot only has 34 EXPO stores. Also, when I viewed the news release, it displayed a mismatched photo showing enthusiastic associates flashing the #1 sign.
Anyways, I love Home Depot because their prices are competitive and I can usually find the products I need in stock. As for Home Depot EXPO, it offered a few items in stock for a great price, but most items required a special order. In other words, not too different from any other plumbing, appliance and tile store. I’ve spent a lot of money at Home Depot and I’ve spent a lot of time at Home Depot EXPO. That’s probably why the EXPO Design Centers are closing.
