Founder of Yardbirds dies

BY HBSDealer Staff

John Morrison Headley, who once reigned over a chain of 10 California home improvement stores, died in his home in Santa Rosa at the age of 77, according to an article in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Headley operated the Petaluma-based Yardbirds for three decades and often united with other business owners to keep Home Depot from opening new units in the Bay Area of Northern California. But in December 2005, Headley sold Yardbirds to Home Depot, which closed several of the units and remodeled the others into co-branded small format stores.

Home Depot later closed the five remaining Yardbird locations, along with its Expo Design Centers, in 2009 as a cost-cutting move.
