Who began home depot?

Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank started Home Depot in the late 1970s. They were no longer wanted as executives of the building supply company where they were working, so they started their own company. Home Depot started in Atlanta, Georgia, and has grown to include thousands of stores across the United States.
