The United States' largest home improvement retail chain announced Wednesday it will hire over 80,000 workers across the country in preparation for a busy spring.

Positions are temporary, however, the retailer expects more than half of temporary workers will stay on for permanent employment.

Part- and full-time positions include sales, operations, and cashier gigs across all in-store departments, as well as at its distribution centers.

Home Depot's announcement to hire comes with high demand from shoppers' increasing shift to renovate their homes in a solid housing market.

Home Depot has 6 Northern Colorado locations in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Longmont, and one in Cheyenne. Go HERE for a store locator.
