Home Depot Opens Online Doors
The site will have features for both professionals and do-it-yourself customers. Those features include stock-inventory lists tailored by profession -- plumbing and electrical, for example -- and custom shopping lists that highlight the latest pricing of frequently purchased items, as well as credit card services.
"Integrated commerce is just another example of doing business on the customers' terms," Jeff Cohen, Home Depot's group president for direct marketing businesses, said in a statement. "We are offering one more way for customers -- pros and do-it-yourselfers -- to shape our stores."
