In the wake of the bad national economy, Home Depot announced Monday more than 7,000 employees would be layed off.

According to Home Depot spokesperson Craig Fishel the Ada location will not be affected.

“No Home Depot locations are closing and no customer facing positions in those stores are being eliminated,” Fishel said.

“We had a business called Home Depot Expo which was 34 stores across the country and it was your more high end merchandise that we decided to close and some support positions that went along with that as well as a little bit of a corporate restructuring at our headquarters,” Fishel said.

A spokesperson at the Ada location said they are trying to fill about 10 positions.
