Police are looking for two men who robbed a man outside the Home Depot on Harbor Boulevard on Thursday afternoon. About 12:54 p.m., a man was walking out of Costa Mesa’s Home Depot, 2300 Harbor Blvd., when he was approached by a man who offered to help him with his things to his car, said Sgt. Bryan Glass. Behind this would-be good Samaritan was his accomplice, who approached the shopper from behind and jabbed something in his back, Glass said. He demanded the man’s money and made him lean forward and stole the cash from his back pocket before running away, police said.

Jeff Benson Gilda Crone, Home Depot's spunky, self-proclaimed "Outside Garden Goddess," cares about her job and her customers. Last month, she received the Costa Mesa Home Depot's "25 Years of Caring" award, presented to employees at each of the home improvement chain's 1,700 stores nationwide. But the award wasn't entirely hers to keep. Each Home Depot store is donating $250 in gift cards to the award winners' favorite charities, so they can repair their facilities.

When a 90-foot Christmas tree at Fashion Island lights up for the first time Friday night, it will mark just one mega-tree in a series sparkling to life for the holidays in shopping centers throughout Southern California. Fashion Island's white fir, which soars above many of the surrounding stores, cost roughly $1,000 per foot of height, a price that covered transportation, set-up and decoration. But even with such a hefty price tag, the tree still falls 25 feet short of being the tallest in the area, and perhaps the country.

The Daily Pilot asked people at Home Depot on Harbor Boulevard, "How do you feel about the Job Center closing?" I don't know where the workers are going to go for work if they don't have that. I'd like to know why they're closing it and what their justification is. RON DEWILDE, 53 Costa Mesa I think it's a bad idea because we often use them for day labor.... It's going to make it bad for places like Home Depot. DEREK PHILLIPS, 39 Costa Mesa It's a good place to go and find work; it benefits everyone -- the guy that needs work and the people who need workers.
