“It used to be called ‘House Depot’ until they filled it with love”

“Love is what makes a house a home” is an old proverb. The Home Depot (an American home improvement supplies retailing company) was never called “House Depot,” but there are jokes.

“I want to meet the woman whose love finally turned House Depot into Home Depot” was posted on Twitter by Salman Farooq on May 9, 2012. “It used to be called “House Depot” until they filled it with love” was posted on Twitter by Amish PornStar™ on March 16, 2014.


Wikipedia: The Home Depot
The Home Depot Inc. or Home Depot is an American home improvement supplies retailing company that sells tools, construction products, and services. The company is headquartered at the Atlanta Store Support Center in unincorporated Cobb County, Georgia (with an Atlanta mailing address).
