Description: “Whoa”, said Bernie, We didn’t see that one coming.” In 1978, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank were working for Handy Dan, a home improvement company in Los Angeles. Bernie was president of the company and Arthur was the CFO or Chief Financial Officer. The parent company had been taken over by a corporate raider, who immediately fired the two men. Sitting at an outside café, enjoying coffee, Bernie crossed his legs displaying his Gabby Maria Golf Crew Socks. “Well” said Arthur, “Now what?” Bernie thought for a moment and said, “Let’s start our own home improvement company, one that doesn’t now exist. It will be a one stop shop for the do-it-yourself-er. It will be bigger and cheaper than all of the competition.” Arthur liked the idea, and then said, “What shall we call the new venture.” Over many weeks of discussion, they tossed around such possible names as – Home Saver; 1-2-3 Do It Home Center; the Complete Home Center; Do It and Save, but the best name of all was Bad Bernie’s Buildall with a logo featuring a man in a stripped prison uniform. Finally, after much thought and input from friends, they settled on the name THE HOME DEPOT.
