Very impressive IMHO. Bernie Marcus, Ken Langone, and most of all Arthur Blank. These guys were something....I especially was amazed when I heard Art say "we didn't care about the bottomline at first"....we were just concerned about the customers and associates. Making sure the associates knew what they were doing, and that the customer was getting what they needed. That was it. How simple can that be ? Ok, Ok...again, the hardware/home improvement business with the mom and pops was HORRENDOUS back then. Hit and miss...never knew if they had what you wanted....incredible amounts of wasted time, etc. Poor quality abounded. Returns ? What returns ? If you bot it, you OWNED it, whether it worked well or not. What other businesses today exhibit that same characteristic ripe for being "home depoted" ?? Anyone ?
