When embarking on household projects, many start their journey at The Home Depot. As the world's largest home improvement chain and one of the largest US retailers, the company operates about 2,265 stores in the US, Canada, and Mexico, as well as an online business. It targets the do-it-yourself (DIY) and professional markets with its selection of some 40,000 items, including lumber, flooring, plumbing supplies, garden products, tools, paint, and appliances. Home Depot also offers installation services for carpeting, cabinetry, and other products. Stung by the deep recession and housing crisis in the US, the firm is regaining its footing by focusing on its core Home Depot stores and exiting China.
