As my nearest hardware and nursery chain store, I find several things to like and several things to dislike about Home Depot. I like that they offer lumber in price per foot. If I don't need ten feet, I won't pay a price per board fee. I like that they offer several commercial options for common supplies and their paint brand is good, too. However, I don't like that there is oftentimes a shortage of staff and the prices are higher for some items. Some items are frequently out of stock, as well. Take the good with the bad, here.
