ATLANTA-Hoping it has spotted a market niche, Home Depot plans to open 200 high-end Expo Design Centers over the next several years. The publicly-held company’s third Atlanta area design center will open in spring 2001.

Home Depot is renovating a vacant 105,000-sf Sam’s Club building near the Lindbergh MARTA station in Buckhead, about six miles from center city. Sam’s Club is a Wal-Mart Stores Inc. subsidiary.
