Home Depot Informative - If consumers would just stop and think
People it's not rocket science they control there own destiny, that is till they step on the wrong toe. Just look at it as a government bail out! What I mean by that they are a source of economic stability, as an employer, an advertiser, a company that facilitates sales of sub par products, but they are still sales a national cash flow, which equates to tax money, loads of tax money.
Let's look at what it spawned, vendors drop their quality to supply them with their price, and because of this there is no place to buy the better version of the same products unless you buy at a commercial supply houses. Let make an example a kitchen faucet at Home Depot there may be these differences plastic instead of brass, plastic finish chrome over plastic parts, instead of chrome plating over brass, nylon parts that wears out quickly as opposed to ceramic or brass parts. Come on people, your forsaking quality for price. If you think I'm crazy return something that is defective, they don't ship it back to the company that makes the junk because the shipping cost more then the product is worth. Take the time to drive around one of their buildings you will find a large machine connected to a dumpster they crush it . I'm not a ex employee I'm a contractor who is tired of being screwed as well as seeing them trying to screw my customers if it comes to that I pay to correct the problem for example I built a front porch, the customer picked turned wood columns they found in HD, they failed in less then 6 months, when I complained their SA manager had the company email me for direct input the problem was I can't read Chinese. I went back to HD they said they were done move on, so I did I have a clause I
n my contracts that I do not us nor will I install anything bought at HD. Open your eyes if you don't patronize the old school suppliers they will soon be gone. Resulting in more and more companies will lower the standard of the forefathers to sell their product to companies like them. Next time your in there look around, look beyond the glitter and display glow think about what you have read and realize you only get what you pay for, despite the perks you think you are getting your paying way to much for their junk.
