“We are very excited to be opening our Chilliwack location,” Home Depot Canada president Bill Lennie said in a news release.
“Our Chilliwack team will inspire members of the community to make the most of their homes, while bringing the industry’s best customer service and home improvement know-how together with a selection of top quality products, all competitively priced,” he said.
The 80,000-square foot store will include a special home decor section, more than 40,000 products, an expansive outdoor garden area, a tool rental centre and installation services.
Home Depot bills itself as an environmentally-conscious company with a commitment to “giving back to the communities it serves.”
More than 100 full and part-time jobs for Chilliwack area residents will be created.
Home improvement workshops will be offered at the Chilliwack store on topics like how to build a deck, installing energy-efficient lighting and updating kitchens.
