Home Depot Installs Christmas lights

New to me,

I was in Home Depot the other day grabbing some tape, thought I would check prices of cords and then I saw it. A sign for Home Depot at home services offering Christmas light installation starting at $395. I was surprised and pissed all at the same time.

the local handyman matters franchise does that as well. they are 68 bucks per man hour, and they start at 299 for 2.5 hours with 2 guys and top out at 2 guys for 8 hours each for 999 for the day. they sell quite a bit, but they get paid the same hourly rate whether they are untangling or hanging.

I have a relative who works at HD.
They don't offer CL at all of them.

But good news.
They do carry Martha Stewart lights...J'm so excited
