Lodi residents looking for a job close to home can start applying for positions at the new Home Depot that will open on April 26.

The retail giant opened up online applications recently for the new store that is estimated to employ up to 150 people. It will be located in the Reynolds Ranch shopping complex along with Costco at Harney Lane and Highway 99.

Interested job seekers need to fill out an online form, and Home Depot managers will look through the applications and then do a series of phone interviews, spokeswoman Kathryn Gallagher said. There will also be some local hiring events in the area, but Gallagher said she did not know the dates and times.

The retailer does not share salary ranges for employees, but Gallagher said they do offer a competitive pay range that includes benefits for both full- and part-time employees.

Shames Construction is currently working on the site and finishing the outside of the building, site superintendent Bryant Newbill said.

The construction crews still need to spend four weeks putting fixtures into the building and then moving all of the merchandise into the store. There have only been two to three days of rain during the entire project, which has helped it stay on track, Newbill said.

"Usually when you are doing a ground-up building this time of year, you are having to fight with the weather," he said.

Progress is also moving forward on three new shell buildings, which are buildings that will house multiple businesses. During the last month, permits were filed with the Lodi Community Development department for the three buildings, which will total about 15,500 square feet.

Developer Dale Gillespie said he is working with some national retailers, but cannot yet announce what other businesses will be coming to the shopping center. The Lodi Planning Commission approved the entire Reynolds Ranch project and the Home Depot application in March 2010. The 24-hour improvement center submitted plans for a 134,240-square-foot building, including a 28,086-square-foot Garden Center.

The plans for Reynolds Ranch also include five other major retailers that will be 18,000 square feet or larger. The plans include locations for a drugstore, a restaurant, two banks and nine smaller shops.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
