"Through the month of April, we have leveraged our existing Internet investment by rolling out additional catalogs to serve the remainder of the contiguous U.S.," said Ron Griffin, chief information officer. The products offered vary by region. The Home Depot continues the full-line, online product availability of more than 50,000 products to customers in Las Vegas, San Antonio and Austin, TX.
