Home Depot buys West Coast flooring business



The Home Depot (Atlanta), the nation's largest home-improvement store chain, is expanding a key building supply unit with the purchase of a West Coast flooring business.

The retailer has completed the acquisition of Creative Touch Interiors, a start-to-finish design center for homebuilders in Southern California and Las Vegas. Terms were not disclosed.

Creative Touch Interiors will be folded into Home Depot's division that offers flooring, countertops, window treatments and design services. The unit targets the $25 billion in finished products and services consumed annually in new home construction.

Home Depot said the purchase will extend the reach of its Builder Solutions Group, launched in 2002 when it bought Floors Inc., Arvada Hardwood Floor Co. and Floorworks Inc., from coast to coast.

Creative Touch Interiors has 200 employees, with its flagship location in San Diego. According to Home Depot, president Jeffrey Sears will remain in his leadership role at CTI.

Home Depot operates 1650 stores in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.
