Is Home Depot Selling The Farm?.

You know business is tough when you have to sell off parts of your parking lot to make your revenue numbers.  However, news out of Atlanta this week suggests that’s exactly what home improvement giant, The Home Depot intends to do. Saddled with too much asphalt and too few customers, the one-time retail juggernaut is seeking buyers in retail and food service to set up shop on its tarmac – of which it owns approximately 89 percent.

According to Home Depot’s Vice President of Real Estate Mike LeFerle, the company has identified unused portions of parking lots at hundreds of its stores in the U.S. and Canada. They will be looking to sell to complementary businesses that target a similar customer base. Parcels are said to be approximately half an acre or more.
