This is what a Super Home Depot looks like on the outside. It’s the Vauxhall, NJ location, not too far from NYC (right off I-78). According to a few sources online, this is Home Depot’s largest location in the country.
I didn’t really notice much about the outside.
But on the inside, things are far different compared to any other Home Depot I’ve ever been to.
To start, there’s a Dunkin Donuts right inside. It looked to be a fully equipped DD too, except everything is to-go.
The power tool section was amazingly well organized, not to mention huge. Even the hand tool section was nicely spread out.
This is the cordless tool section.
Corded tools were within another nearby aisle, neatly organized by type. Here are all the 1/4 sheet and finish sanders they had in stock.
This is the ball bearing tool storage aisle, with demo units all positioned in a way where you can walk back and forth to compare features.
There were sections I’d never seen at other Home Depots before, such as this office supply area, where they had a lot of Rite in the Rain products.
There were also expanded selections in some of the other departments. For instance, the Super Home Depot had display areas of fancy outlets and designer switches that I’d never seen elsewhere.
There were enclosed design studios and plenty of showroom space. I hadn’t taken any photos of the showroom spaces since there were so many people walking through and looking things over.
The downside: by the time I was done with my initial walk-through of the Super Home Depot, I felt like I had spent the afternoon at Ikea. The store was really that huge, with so much more to see than I had anticipated.
While a bit of a drive from NYC, it was a worthy visit. This was the most fun I’ve ever had at a Home Depot.
If only every HD was like this! According to Wikipedia, this Home Depot Super Store has more than double the average square footage for regular Home Depot stores, with a total of 225,000 square feet.
No wonder I was so exhausted!
I’ll take more pictures next time!
