Home Depot will shutter a test store in Wilson, one of three stores with a three different trial formats the company announced it will close.
The store, which is about half the size of a regular Home Depot store, employs 30 people. But spokesman Craig Fishel said the decision does not affect any of the other 11 Triangle-area Home Depot stores.
In addition to the Wilson store, Home Depot will also close a clearance outlet store near Atlanta and a hurricane response store in Waveland, Miss.
The Wilson store's closure is scheduled tentatively for March, Fishel said.
