I hope they adopt Office Depot's customer service because Office Max is terrible at it.
I think that there are simply TOO MANY office supply stores. They are all rather "Expensive" too, if you ask me. I only shop for office supplies at: Staples, Office Max, or Office Depot, if I can't find what I'm "Looking For" at: Target, Walmart, etc. Better prices for Kid's school supplies as well.
I'm not a market analyst, but I've said it for years, too, right in front of the employees at empty stores - too many stores in the market. But, I usually find what I need at a cheaper place, or online, since these stores tend to be extremely overpriced.
What the heck are "secular office supplies"?
"I'm not a market analyst, but I've said it for years, too, right in front of the employees at empty stores - too many stores in the market. But, I usually find what I need at a cheaper place, or online, since these stores tend to be extremely overpriced" Is that really a bad thing? These stores put the local stores out of business (remember SPB&S? Gone!) with their "lower" prices. Now they're the gougers? What's going to happen when these gougers are gone? Staples and Amazon.
"I hope they adopt Office Depot's customer service because Office Max is terrible at it" You're kidding! Right? The first employee I come across asks if I need assistance. The second, third and fourth do the same. Isn't that what customer service is about?
The progression towards bankruptcy continues. I'm 31 and I have never purchased anything at either store. Growing up I'd go to Best Buy or CompUSA and today I shop Amazon.
Thank God! I was always getting the two mixed-up!
I hope they combine their names in this merger. I propose either Office Office or Depot Max!
I liked OfficeMax before it got bought out by Boise Cascade. They put a Staples in the old Har Mar movie theatre near my house and the place is always empty. The only stuff I buy at these stores is on-sale items. During some sales events they can be very competitive, even with online stores. Maybe they need to do what Target is doing and start matching online retail prices.
