I bought a zero turn Cub Cadet mower from them on line in from the Williston store that was closing. It was 50% off. The only option was to have it delivered free. I was leaving for AK in a few days and left before it got to the house. I had told my wife to make sure she checked the oil before she started it. I called her one night and she said the mower came and she took it off the skid and checked the oil and started mowing. The mower bound up and would not steer correct in about 3/10s of an hour. I told he to contact Home Depot in Minot. She called them and they told her to bring it in. She loaded it on the trailer and hauled it in. They looked at it and said it was something Williston did not do before delivery. They gave her a new mower and $100 gift certificate. So at this point I have no problem with Home Depot. The new mower runs fine.

They got some real dozeys working there(foreigners).I bought some lumber and stuff there last summer and a few times they only charged for half the stuff on the cart.
I guess I'll keep shopping there-great way to get return business.

True , most employees there know very little. A friend of mine worked there once. He was however , knowledgeable. Scary thing was people would come in to do major renovation and didn't know one end of a hammer from the other , he wanted to tell them they were in way over their head , but no , corporate policy was to help them and explain everything in detail. They would be back time and time again for more information and to buy stuff they screwed up the first time.

I have bought some Ridgid tools there, including a hammer drill I use as an ice auger, a big battery for the drill and a little radio that plugs into the batteries. All bought on sale with significant savings over MSRP, plus all items have a lifetime service agreement. That LSA on the batteries is well worth it.

I've never had any issues with them, and I like that their website shows exactly where in the store the item I'm looking for is located.

Thanks TLguy. I'm going to look into that. I always go to Menards because I can never find what I'm looking for at Home Depot and there is never anyone to ask.

Keep in mind , some things are not what they seem to be. Large chain hardware stores have stuff that look the same , act the same but are not.
I was told by a Dewalt guy once that they make special items to sell to large places like this. Buy a Dewalt drill directly from Dewalt and it has metal gears , buy one the looks the same from a big retailer and it has plastic gears. They do this because big chains negotiate deals to get it cheaper than smaller stores. Walmart has been doing this for years.

Quit them about 8 years ago. They are 30 miles away in a town im in two or three times a month but instead of fooling with them id drive 60 miles to a Lowes if I need anything. Did same thing with Sears 20 years ago now they're all shut down, be fine with me if depot shuts the doors, then a lowes could move into that town.

Oh, they do. I work at Lowes and we sell busted bags of soil, mulch, etc 50% off. You'd be shocked how many times I've caught people ripping open bags. Just today, actually.

We take back things up to 90 days without a receipt, 1 year with a receipt, or up to I believe 3 years if you buy the extended warranty deal. Not many places will let your return something over a year old. But, we are a big box store. We deal in sales strictly, NOT repair. If you want something you can buy and then take back to the same place to be repaired, you'd need to buy direct from a dealer.

Vets get 10% discount on everything in the store. Lowe’s does too. Same for Ace Hardware.

No so at WalMart.

Don't get me started on Fleet Farm. Though at least they still have cashier's.

I used to think Home Depot stores were bad, then I tried using their website. Horrible.

And I hate the indoor lumber yard. I have to load 200 2x4s on a cart, push it through the store then load them in my truck? I'll go to the local lumberyard, thank you.
