06/09/04 : The job market obviously looks much better than it did only six months ago. Home Depot is taking a creative approach to maintaining this growth. It has been reported that this expanding retailer is so hungry for locations that it is purchasing 24 locations from Kmart, which is in the midst of its own restructuring and contraction. This move actually helps three parties: Home Depot, Kmart and their workers. The first two are employing strategies that further enhance their bottom lines while the third group may actually find opportunity in the newer brand coming into town. Whether Home Depot is getting these locations at a Blue-Light-Special price is yet to be determined. However, at a reported purchase price of $365 million, it obviously makes sense on both sides of the equation.
