The Home Depot has opened three distribution centers across Florida, spanning from West Palm Beach and Miami to Fort Myers to expedite delivery to customers in the South Florida region. The company plans to open two additional Miami distribution centers in 2022. Together, these five facilities are expected to create more than 150 new full- and part-time jobs across the region.
“Our customers have varying needs – from DIYers renovating their homes to professional contractors on job sites,” said Kyle Dennis, vice president of supply chain development. “These investments are helping us deliver to our Pro and DIY customers across South Florida when, where and how they want.”
The newly-opened facility in Miami is a 332,000-square-foot building that will deliver big and bulky construction materials and other oversized product directly to pro and DIY customers. In 2017, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment in its supply chain and is in the process of building out its network with about 150 new facilities nationwide. They include a variety of formats to meet the unique needs of different customers in the dynamically changing world of retail.
