Out to capitalize on the wave of spring cleaning right now, the Home Depot at 40 West 23rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues features very bright, very concept-heavy window displays. Their play on the old TV game show The Price Is Right is pretty right on, with with the retro graphics, guess-the-price tags, and even a glamorous mannequin modeling what could be "your very own brand new backyard barbeque set!" For a store that boasts over 1,200 cabinet hardware styles and 3,200 paint samples, these windows are a great way to demonstrate their craftier thinking.
