The anchor store for Marina Center, The Home Depot® is one of America’s most successful companies. It is also a caring company that is considered an enlightened corporate citizen by the communities where it conducts business.

With company values including “Taking Care of Our People,” “Giving Back to Our Communities,” and “Doing the Right Thing,” The Home Depot is dedicated to providing innovative and industry-leading benefits, and makes benefits available to all full-time and part-time associates. The company offers medical, dental, and vision insurance; life insurance; the opportunity to share in the company's growth through its Success Sharing program - a bonus plan for associates; a discounted stock purchase plan; and other benefits to eligible full-time and part-time associates. Approximately 65 percent of its employees are full time.

The Home Depot has entered into several hiring partnerships over the past few years in its efforts to recruit talented and diverse associates, including one with AARP. This partnership began in 2004 to attract, motivate and retain eligible older workers as part- and full-time associates.

In Eureka, The Home Depot will create hundreds of jobs that will in turn support additional local jobs through the spending of wages. The Home Depot at Marina Center’s full-time and part-time employees will be hired locally in Eureka and all will be eligible for benefits, tuition reimbursement, career development, and employee stock-purchase plans.

Additionally, The Home Depot will send new business to local North Coast contractors in the form of store-purchased home improvement projects that require the expertise of licensed contractors. This additional business will come at no marketing or administrative expense to local contractors.

Giving back to the communities it serves is a fundamental value of The Home Depot and its associates. In addition to offering financial support to nonprofit organizations, the company also volunteers time and resources through Team Depot, The Home Depot’s organized volunteer force of associates who volunteer their free time to community projects. Team Depot gave nearly one million hours in 2005 while working on community service projects.

The Home Depot is sensitive to the environment. It builds energy-efficient stores that comply with ENERGY STAR guidelines. It selects lumber suppliers committed to sustainable forestry, giving preferential treatment to suppliers of certified “green” lumber products. Unlike most large retailers, The Home Depot custom-designs each store for its specific community and location. The current concept for the Marina Center store includes its newest store format incorporating high architectural and landscaping standards.

From its custom architectural design and energy-saving innovations to its community-minded point of view, The Home Depot will complement Eureka’s small-town character and spirit.
