In October of 1986, leading up to the holiday season, F. Patrick Sher, Stephen Dougherty, and Jack Kopkin opened a little office supply store in their local mall in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida. By 1988 the company, Office Depot, was publicly traded, by 1991 it had expanded to the West Coast, and these days (after a ‘merger of equals’ with Office Max in 2013) it spans over 2,200 stores in 59 countries. The go-to name when you need anything from a pack of pens to new bleeding-edge laptop (and matching desk suite too, natch), Office Depot and Office Max employ over 66,000 associates worldwide and are used to treating their customers like family.
Because that family ethos extends to every aspect of business practice, Office Depot and Office Max locations will be closed for Thanksgiving 2017 to allow their employees and customers to enjoy the holiday surrounded by friends and family. Stores will open at 7:45am on Black Friday.
