Will Home Depot heal from the housing collapse?
Home Depot was clearly a casualty of the housing collapse, as fewer home purchases and a weak consumer led to a big drop in sales.

But the crisis didn't turn out to be all bad. In the slowdown the nation's leading home-improvement retailer worked to fix its core business by boosting the efficiency of the firm's supply chain and upgrading customer service.
