The store was asking the Commission to modify its operating hours to include an extra hour in the evening during the week and another hour in the morning on Sunday, consistent with its other store at 7100 Warner Ave.
If the new store hours had been approved, Home Depot would keep its doors open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
Home Depot operators informed Santos about the decision on Tuesday and said they will send a letter also. "They are not obligated to explain why they withdrew plans," Santos said.
The delivery hours, excluding lumber delivery, will remain unchanged as to 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The retailer of home improvement products and equipment is slated to employ about 200 people at its new facility.
Doro Bush to talk about her father
In a one-time appearance in Orange County, George H.W. Bush's daughter Dorothy Bush Koch will be presenting her new book, "My Father, My President: A Personal Account of George H.W. Bush," at the Huntington Beach Central Library on Tuesday.
The book offers an inside look at the life and career of the former president with rare photographs and family stories. Koch writes about how her father dealt with challenges and crises during his presidency and maintained his sense of humor through it.
Koch, nicknamed "Doro" for Dorothy, is the youngest of four children that includes three brothers Marvin Bush, Florida Gov. Jeb Neil Bush and President George W. Bush. Koch is the only daughter of Barbara and George Bush.
Koch will speak at the event and sign her book starting at 7 p.m. Admission for two people to the event is included in the purchase of the book, which costs about $30.
