DANGEROUS – BE AWARE! I was just threatened by several day laborers who were soliciting within the parking lot of this establishment. - They saw me carrying out concrete...
There are no rules here, and I'm right now learning that some of my construction friends have complained to this store's management with no results.. Now, however, after being threatened by gangs currently working WITHIN their parking lot, this place is simply dangerous. The Burbank store polices these types of activities which is obviously much safer and it's really not that far away.
It's a shame that this store will not take any steps to curb the unlawfulness happening on their property, and within feet of their doors, but considering what I just experienced, you will want to avoid this location.
Good luck - Life shouldn't be this challenging...
Do-it-yourself home improvement store offers building materials and lawn and garden products; free in-store how-to clinics, design and decorating consultation. – In Short
This warehouse-size hardware haven has virtually everything you could need to create, repair or maintain a house or garden, with options for everyone from first-time DIY-ers to professional builders. Browse aisles brimming with paint, fixtures, tools, appliances, lumber, plants, sod and more. If you can't find what you're looking for, or if it's 15 feet off the ground on shelves that reach to the sky, ubiquitous orange-aproned staffers will help you get what you need.
More misses than hits – The only thing Home Depot has going for it are low prices. Usually. The current trend in American business seems to be just to get the price down on everything, at the cost of quality, selection and customer service. I prefer shopping at my little local hardware store, but sometimes they don't have what I need, and when I have to go to Home Depot, and I am lucky enough to FIND an employee who seems to give a hoot, s/he usually knows less about what tools or supplies I need than I do, and I am an amateur do-it-yourself guy. But if you go to Home Depot, definitely talk to the older guys, they will at least tell you when they don't know something rather than pretend.
Better locations around town – Yes...HD has everything you need to improve that new fixer-upper or even that old one. But with all the new locations with humongous parking lots, try to avoid this one at all costs. I've had to visit this location several times over the last few years, and have never had a positive experience with any of the staff. They seem to avoid me like the plague...even when it's pretty obvious I'll be spending several hundreds of dollars in one shot. I will now drive much farther (to the location in Monrovia...or even Loews in Burbank) just to avoid this HD shop.
Home "where are the..." Depot – I like Home Depot. It's a one-stop shop for all kinds of fixins. They've got a lot of everything. So much of everything, that I can never find anything. I think I spend more time in Home Depot trying to find someone to ask where something is, than I do actually shopping and purchasing the merchandise. Its a crazy maze in there. The lines can also be long on weekends. They do have everything. But, sometimes, thats the problem.
Fixer-Upper – As a new homeowner, I spend most of my spare time--and all of my money--in Home Depot. All the aging scenesters/homeowders can also be spotted at this particular location, which is also open 24 hours.
