The Home Depot: A Timeline of Key Events

What's Inside

Home Depot was founded on a vision of one-stop shopping for the do-it-yourself home repair and home improvement consumers, starting small with two stores in Atlanta—huge and cavernous (at the time) at around 60,000 square feet, dwarfing the competition. Now, Home Depot has:

  • More than 2,200 stores in the US, Canada and Mexico.
  • Nearly 400,000 employees.
  • A typical store size of over 100,000 square feet.
