The world’s largest home improvement retailer honed in on its U.S. business last year as the housing rebound sent more customers into its stores for hardware, lumber and more. U.S. comparable store sales were up 7.5%, the best showing since 1999, and overall revenue rose 5% to $78.8 billion. CEO Francis S. Blake wants the Home Depot shopping experience to be seamless from online to in-store. Already, 30% of online orders are picked up at local stores. Blake is hoping for further gains by investing more in the company’s online and mobile businesses.
