ATLANTA, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Depot announced today that it has opened three new distribution centers across Florida, spanning from West Palm Beach and Miami to Fort Myers. The facilities will provide even faster delivery options to customers in the South Florida region. The company plans to open two additional Miami distribution centers in 2022.
