Yardbirds Home Center
was a chain of 10 home improvement stores similar to Home Depot
based in Petaluma
, United States
. Their trademark colors were yellow and white. Their mascot
was a white buzzard
with yellow overalls. These stores were not affiliated with the Yard Birds
stores based out of Chehalis, Washington
that used a black bird with a yellow beak as its mascot.
The chain has been purchased by Home Depot, and the stores were closed for remodeling. Two have reopened as Home Depots, while 3 are closed permanently. 5 smaller stores were reopened in Spring 2007 as YardBIRDS, a Home Depot company.
