I have heard from friends of mine that used to work at the old Kmart here in Ogdensburg NY that Kmart has the same store policy.  The same situation happened in the Kmart here once.

Yeah, we had a case a few years back of employee ignorance at the Kmart in Webster, MA, I knew someone who worked there.  These 2 guys loaded a big screen tv into a shopping cart and wheeled it out the doors.  When the Sensormatics went off the cashiers assumed they already paid and waved them through.  A half hour later they realized the tv was stolen, they guys got away.

"We saw them with the merchandise. We saw them run out of the store. I never kept my eyes off of them. Then when we asked them for a receipt, and that's when they dropped the merchandise and they kept running. One guy still had a chainsaw while he was running, and that's when the cops tackled him," he said.

Obviously this person had some experience in Loss Prevention. The key point that I want to make is that he never took his eyes off of the customer.In my company, once you take your eyes off of someone, then game over. Hope that Security was keeping an eye on them, and has the incident caught on tape.

I'm not sure how their Loss Prevention works. Seems like there is more to this story than what is being said.

THAT was a Home Depot?Huh?

wow, it looks nice for being a Home Depot.

What's expo mean was it a store or an exposition center?

Hold on it was chain store that was part of the Home Depot company, never mind now I get it.

Expo is a more upscale version of Home Depot (more focused for home-designer-type people instead of do-it-yourself'ers). I think they closed a bunch of these a year or two back.

When I was a kid I pulled such pranks as gluing the toilet seat down and the plunger to the wall at Ames, but not putting glue on the toilet seat.  Apparently Home Depot is being sued by an angry customer who got glued to one of their toilets!

A quick fact about Home Depot:

In the early days of Home Depot, when smaller hardware/lumber yards would close due to lost sales, it became traditon that before a store opened, managers would present the local competition with a black wreath and pet casket (which a logo of the targeted store in the inside) in the hopes that they would go out business. According to the A&E Special, management did this to invoke fear in managers.

When Home Depot first opened and began building, they were referenced as the Wal-Mart of the hardware industry...

When did Home Depot first become big? I know when it was founded, but when did it first become well-known? I wonder what their original logo and/or store designs were like. The first time I ever went to one was in 1995 or 1996.

And when did they start/stop using the "Insert State Here's Home Improvement Warehouse" signs? :huh::huh::huh:

I have only shopped in two Home Depots.  They are located at:

[list=1]
  • Bensalem, PA (In shoppin Center with Target.  Was originaly open grounds that was part of Eastern State Hospital)
  • Ozone Park, NY (Was originally part of the parking lot for Aqueduct Racetrack.  The back of the Home Depot building can been seen on NYRA's broadcast of live racing from Aquectuct Racetrack)
  • [/list=1]

Here is a picture I took of The Home Depot in Lawnside, NJ. This is a former Jefferson Ward and Bradlees. Notice the hot dog stand where the white awning is in the front.

Why did Home Depot not remodel this store extensively, like Wal-Mart did with their former Jefferson Ward/Bradlees?

I'm not sure, but I think it looks better like that.

By the way, in response to your questions about the early days of THD, it really wasn't much different than it is now. On The Home Depot's corporate website, they had a timeline which featured some pics from the first few stores. The logo was the same orange box they use today, the interior looked just like the current one but with slightly different department signs. The only major difference were the storefronts, which were former The Treasury stores that had zigzag shaped storefronts.
