Home Depot, the world's largest operator of home improvement stores, increased its sales by 171.1 per cent between 2010 and 2021, according to an analysis by DIY International. In local dollar terms, this corresponds to more than a doubling or almost a tripling within eleven years. Sales rose particularly sharply in the years of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, for example, it went up by a staggering 19.9 per cent and in 2021 again by 14.4 per cent. On average over the last eleven years, the American group thus gained around 9.5 per cent each year.
