Soft Opening for Prattville Home Depot

The first retailer in the shops at the Prattville Town Center opened Friday.

Lots of folks from around the tri-county area showed up for the "soft" opening of the Home Depot on Cobbs Ford Road.

The Grand Opening is scheduled for June 28th, but Friday's smaller opening is used to train employees.

The store is one of four prototype stores across the nation with high end merchandise.

The new store employs more than 100 people, and officals say 90% of those are Prattville residents.
