Home Depot, Part II

Original post made by gsb, Stanford, on Aug 8, 2006

According to this morning's PADN, Home Depot is looking to expand their store in EPA, making it the biggest HD in the nation.

If this is true, why in the heck are they still trying to put a store in Mountain View? It didn't make sense...to me, at least, to put one in MV in the first place. But now?! It's just plain insane.

When Expo was closing, I asked and was told that HD would take over the space. That was a year or two ago. I'm glad it just might happen to create America's largest HD. With Circuit City taking over the space left vacant by CompUSA, that shopping complex should be complete again. Nice.

As for the rumor started by a NIMBY, there's not a grain of truth to it. He's probably chuckling loudly that his real estate will continue to rise.

Whatever the market will bear....

If Home Depot can make money with locations in both EPA and Mountain View, then more power to them.

Circuit City taking over the old CompUSA site? Didn't CompUSA take over that site from CC and then ran it into the ground? So CC is coming back there or ??

That whole shopping center lacks coherency.
