Home Depot, charged to manage and market the sale of Centennial Olympic Bricks has been relieved of its duties, ACOG announced Thursday. Home Depot only sold 60,000 of the bricks by the end of the holiday season. The company had projected that 2 million would be sold by spring. ACOG will take over the marketing of the bricks with a $2M ad and P.R. campaign. Home Depot still will manage brick orders, but will have little to do with marketing (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/24).
