Valdosta -- Home Depot is announcing they're moving a major operation center to Lowndes County.

The Worlds Largest Home Improvement Specialty Retailer will build their Regional Distribution Center in Lake Park.

Construction is slated to begin in May and will initially employ 225 people. Once built, it will employ over six hundred people. 

"My advice to people currently unemployed is dust off your resume, seek some additional training from Val Tech and VSU, and be ready because the opporunities are coming," says Brad Lofton of the Lowndes Industrial Authority. 

Construction of the center will take nearly $40 million to build.

They expect the building to be completed by December 2008 and operational by 2009.
