A home improvement giant is expanding its same- and next-day delivery capacity across South Florida.

The Home Depot has opened three new supply chain facilities in the Florida municipalities of West Palm Beach, Miami, and Fort Myers. The company intends for the centers to provide faster delivery options to customers in the South Florida region, and plans to open two additional Miami distribution centers in 2022. Together, these five facilities are expected to create more than 150 new full- and part-time jobs across South Florida.

The newly-opened facility in Miami is a 332,000-sq.-ft. building that will deliver big and bulky construction materials and other oversized product directly to Home Depot’s Pro and DIY customers. Meanwhile, the new delivery locations in West Palm Beach and Fort Myers expand the company’s appliance delivery to customers in those markets.

The two additional Miami facilities Home Depot plans to open in 2022 will expand delivery of appliances and same-day and next-day parcel delivery to customers across South Florida. In 2017, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment in its supply chain and is in the process of building out its network with about 150 new facilities nationwide in variety of formats to meet the needs of different customers.

"Our customers have varying needs – from DIYers renovating their homes to professional contractors on job sites," said Kyle Dennis, VP of supply chain development, Home Depot. "These investments are helping us deliver to our Pro and DIY customers across South Florida when, where and how they want."

The Home Depot is the world's largest home improvement specialty retailer, operating a total of 2,298 retail stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, 10 Canadian provinces, and Mexico.
