The Home Depot's EXPO store on Davis Drive in Alpharetta, near the Ga. 400-Mansell Road interchange, will close as part of the company's decision to exit its EXPO business. This and other cost-cutting measures will cut 7, 000 jobs, or 2 percent of its total workforce.
Special Note to EXPO customers
The Home Depot will complete any construction projects that have been started.
In cases where product has been ordered but the construction project hasn't been started, the company will refund the price of installation and the design retainer. The customer can then arrange for their own installation.
In cases where a design retainer has been paid but product has not yet been ordered, the customer will receive a full refund of the design retainer, as well as a 10 percent off coupon that can be used for a product and services discount at a local Home Depot store.
Only two EXPO stores are scheduled to close in Georgia:
Alpharetta (10700 Davis Drive, Alpharetta, GA 30004)
Atlanta - Perimeter (1201 Hammond Drive, Atlanta, GA 30346)
Restructuring support functions, including continuing to shift to a region-and district-based support model and reducing head count in administrative functions in store support centers, will better align Home Depot's cost structure. These support reductions will affect approximately 2, 000 associates and will result in a 10 percent reduction in the Company's officer ranks. They will not impact any customer-facing positions in Home Depot stores.
All officers will have a salary freeze. Merit increases to non-officer associates, as well as earned bonuses and the company's existing 401k matching contribution for all associates, including officers, will continue.
The company will offer severance, earned bonuses and other benefits to all impacted associates.
"We're very fortunate that the soundness of our company lets us live our value of taking care of our people, even in this time of unprecedented economic hardship, " Blake said. "These changes will make us a stronger company and will allow us to continue to grow associate employment over the long term to benefit our customers."
HD expo design service
When we looked into this last summer, Home Depot Expo said we could have 1 hour with a designer for free. There was a flat fee for more time, which would be taken off if you bought something like $750 in materials. (I don't remember the exact cost.) You could go in, do the free one hour thing and see how you like it. But go in and make an appointment now -- at the time, it would have taken about 3 weeks until we would have been able to talk with a designer.
Seeking feedback: Expo Design Center, Emeryville
I want to remodel parts of my small condo's bathroom & kitchen (both, for my personal enjoyment, and, with eye to increase resale value). BTW my bathroom is higher priority than my kitchen.
I'm impressed with the design ideas I've seen at Home Depot's Expo Design Center in Emeryville. (I'm in nearby Oakland.) But, since I'm not familiar with this field, their prices seem too pricey for me. Yet I did a quick search of "Expo" for past comments this forum; I see some folks find them reasonably priced or not much higher than elsewhere. Hm. Well, I've already secured a $40K "equity line of credit" loan, although I really rather not come close to spending that much
