It appears that after spending 2 years at the top of home improvement retail, Home Depot is on the hunt for a new growth market to drive shareholder returns. And, there’s not much better returns than in illicit drugs. This, after customers found drugs hidden inside items they bought at different Home Depot stores. One lucky customer bought a bathroom vanity with 3 kilograms of cocaine and 40 pounds of marijuana inside, valued at a quarter of a million dollars.
Some advice to the Home Depot execs… here's hoping this is just an introductory special offer. Getting 3 kilos of coke and 40 lbs of weed for couple hundred dollars, AND throwing in a free bathroom vanity? Think you’re setting your profit margins a bit low!
