Office Depot charges way too much for their items anyway so...lower their prices and I bet they would do better but...

I purchase my office products for home from a place in ILL and as long as I spend at least $45 I pay NO S & H. Plus their pricing is much better than Office Depot and Office Max so...

Yes, their prices seem to be in the realm of gouging at times.

Anyway, one does wonder just how many office supply stores a given community can support--especially when half of their products can be had at target and wallmart.

Chain stores do tend to over-build and have to close stores every time sales go down 5%.

When there was talk back in 2007 about the economy heading downhill, I never pictured things like this. So many businesses are folding and so many people are losing their jobs. This is truly a time in my life that will never be forgotten. Something one day I can look back on and speak about without the healines in the news. http://financialnews2.blogspot.com/2008/12/of...
