Ever wonder how home depot got started?

The Creaters of Home Depot

In 1978, the co-founders Author Blank and Bernie Marcus said that they wanted to make Home Depot the new thing in the home improvement industry. They opened there first two home depot stores on June 22, 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia. Since there stores were so big they had to train their employees so they would know where everything was. In the 1980s and the 1990s, the business was booming. By 1989, the company had its 100th store opening!,

Over the years, the company went global. In 2001, they built stores in Mexico and Canada. Then, five years later, Home Depot was built in China. Now, more people go to Home Depot buy items to improve their buildings.
