The Expo Design Center in North Naples will soon close. The Home Depot on Monday announced it would exit the Expo business, closing all of its stores across the country over the next two months. The only local store is at the Granada Shoppes off U.S. 41 south of Immokalee Road. A company spokeswoman, Tia Robinson, could not say how many local employees would lose their jobs. In total, 7,000 associates will be affected, or about 2 percent of the company's total work force.
