New Store #2509 in Bethesda

JSI & Octagon open new Home Depot Store

Jericho Stage built this small public speaking indoor stage with steps and safety rails. The stage was carpeted and skirted in black and JSI also provided the podium. This store in Bethesda, Maryland was once a high end Expo Design Center, A Home Depot Company lasting 17 years that catered to the more affluent of home renovators and new home builders. It was only a year ago that the Expo stores started closing due to the crippling affects of a poor economy. Now with hopes of a growing economy, Home Depot and it’s marketing company “Octagon” have asked JSI to help them reopen the location as Home Depot Store #2509. Many neighbors and friends of the former store were glad to see the location reopen. The event was busy with old and new clients as a once familiar place to shop opened with a breath of new life.

The spacious basketball arena is home to the Coppin State Eagles and Jericho was required to provide special protection for the new springboard floor. No stranger to working with Coppin State, JSI installed a custom public speaking platform in the new arena for the event. Many honored attendees used the stage to celebrate a lifetime of achievements by the Late Dr. Height who had a long standing relationship with CSU. The Honorable Dr. Maya Angelou, Poet & Author was among them. The seminal event served to launch two major programs in Dr. Heights honor at Coppin State University, and was to be attended by Dr. Height. Prior to her passing she was insistent that the event go on.
