I know I said I was going to be out of touch for a few days....but I had to say a quick THANK YOU to Home Depot. I have been running around like a mad woman lately...(which I will be telling you all about soon....promise). I was at Home Depot yesterday....and yes....sort of dreading it cuz I needed a lot of stuff and...let's face it...my experiences with Big Box stores like this have not been great in the service department.
But I have to say....not only were there plenty of employees around, they actually approached me (yes...every one of them and I think there were a total of four) and asked if I needed help (which I did) AND, they ALL knew exactly where to guide me to find what I was looking for! Imagine! My mood just kept getting better and better. I went in with the thought that I would never find what I was looking for in this huge place, there would be no one to help me, and if I could find someone, they wouldn't know where to find it either. But I was so pleasantly surprised!
Then I found these lamps (which I wasn't even looking for) that were a great price ($57.95 I think) real glazed porcelain and perfect for my daughter's bedroom. (I have been looking for something affordable for awhile now). My grin turned into a big smile at that point.
So....THANK YOU HOME DEPOT! You have really turned it around. And whatever the reason is: recession , new management, middle of the day on a weekday....I don't care. Your employees were courteous and knowledgeable. Bravo!
OK...just had to say that.
AND ...thank you to the man who took my cart back to the store for me after I unloaded my loot, even though you didn't work for Home Depot. That was really the icing on the cake.
