Home Depot hiring 1,800 locally

Home Depot Inc. announced it plans to add some 1,800 employees to its stores in the Boston area as part of a nationwide hiring spree as the big box retailer prepares for the busy spring season.

Houle said Home Depot has 40 stores within a 60-mile radius of Boston that will be hiring.

Nationwide, the company has set a goal of about 80,000 new hires and is targeting retirees, teenagers, and veterans. Open positions vary by store, and Houle said many seasonal spots become regular part-time jobs.

The company hired a similar number of employees for its peak period in 2013.
