The Home Depot ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A weekend project might start with trips to the paint store, the hardware store, the plumbing supply store, the lighting store, the flooring store, the carpet emporium, the kitchen boutique and the lumber yard. But Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus turned that idea upside down when they opened the first Home Depot in 1979. Company insiders remember the shaky first days when no one seemed to grasp their revolutionary concept. And industry observers analyze the impact that the company has had, not just on the hardware industry but on American commerce overall
