Home Depot to bring call center to Kennesaw, Ga.

BY Ken Clark

Home Depot will open a new customer support call center in Kennesaw, Ga., not far from its Atlanta headquarters, in 2012. 

The story first appeared in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and was confirmed by a Home Depot spokesman yesterday. 

The customer support center will start out with 400 employees and grow to about 700 employees by 2015. It will be located in the Chastain Meadows commercial park.

The opening is part of a broader plan to boost its e-commerce business. Home Depot will close its smaller customer support centers in Hazelwood, Mo., and Baton Rouge, La., next year as it relocates operations to Ogden, Utah, and Kennesaw, Ga. The moves create a net gain of 800 jobs, according to a Home Depot spokesman.

Natchez, Miss.-based Central Network Retail Group (CNRG) has added Houma, La.-based Morrison Terrebonne Lumber Center as a new partner.

Doug Gregory, president of Morrison Terrebonne Lumber Center, has also been added to the board of directors at CNRG.

“Doug and his partners, David Vice, Greg Landry and Keith Voisin, have built a great company in Houma," said Boyden Moore, president of CNRG, which currently operates 21 home center and hardware stores, mostly under the Home Hardware brand. "They operate a dominant commercial/builder-focused home center, as well as a neighborhood True Value hardware store.” 

The Morrison Terrebonne Lumber Center store will continue to operate under that name. The St. Charles (La.) True Value store is being converted to a Home Hardware Center. 

“The partnership with Doug and his team is exciting because it enhances our market share, while at the same time adding expertise to the team at CNRG,” said Jimmy Smith, chairman of CNRG. “Doug, David, Greg and Keith will drive our growth along the Gulf Coast, as well as help us improve how we approach the contractor and builder business."
