June 1, 2001
ATLANTA—The Home Depot recently celebrated the opening of its 1,200th store.

Because the company currently opens a store every 43 hours, three stores have earned the “1,200th store” distinction. The stores are located in Fort Smith, Ark.; Farmington, N.M.; and Queens, N.Y.

The company expects to hire approximately 40,000 new associates in 2001.
