    • Home Depot text message shortcut: Text the this message “121 hammer” to 24564 and you will get a link to the a map of the store showing the section for hammers. Replace "121” with the store number you are in and replace “hammer” with the item you are searching for to make new queries. You will likely have to ask a Home Depot Associate what the store number is or find it online. This is an internal tool used by Home Depot Associates to find stuff when customers ask them.
