Highlighting an industry-appropriate deviation from the usual “ribbon-cutting” ceremony, HD Supply Home Improvement Solutions celebrated the grand opening of their 46,000 square feet store in Citrus Heights with an official plywood “board-cutting” just outside the front doors on Greenback Lane, Friday.
“We’re really happy to be in the Citrus Heights community,” said HD District Manager David Lewis, who attended Friday’s grand opening event and said the company prioritizes involvement in the community.
Noting the store’s “cutting-edge technology,” Lewis said their Citrus Heights location is the first to feature QR codes on every product, which can be scanned with a smartphone to provide product information and a video presentation about the item’s features and benefits. The main entry also has a touchscreen kiosk where customers can type in what they’re looking for, and be shown a list of corresponding items and a map of where the item is located in the store.
“It’s pretty nice technology,” said customer Dana Payne of Orangevale, who was being shown the kiosk by Nicole True with HD Supply. “This will really help drastically in the future to find my way around.”
Although about 40 employees were hired initially to get the store open, 19 employees will operate the new location — three of whom live in Citrus Heights, according to Marketing Director Cate Solomon.
HD Supply Home Improvement Solutions is the home improvement division of HD Supply, which operates around 650 locations in North America.
The new store is located at 7999 Greenback Lane, across from the Sunrise Mall. Store hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
