SAN ANTONIO — Two things jump out to a first-time visitor of Home Depot store No. 6544 in San Antonio on a Friday. One is the heat coming off the parking lot. The other is the number of cars parked there.
Selling through a triple-digit heat wave, the store in the Alamo Heights neighborhood, a stone’s throw from the city’s international airport, is described as heavy on the contractor business, and that means busy Friday afternoons.
