Even after ten years of strong financial results, Home Depot is not sitting on its laurels and is instead doubling its investment in its stores and e-commerce to $11.1 billion over the next three years. That will include investing in things like faster check-out for customers, better inventory management, flexible scheduling and competitive wages for store workers, while turning over merchandise more quickly to keep things fresh and introducing more new brands and expanding its appliance business. It is also investing in more mundane things like buffing floors to make stores more inviting. But whatever it’s doing is working.
