Delray-Based Office Depot: Good News! (But Mostly Bad)



Let's hear for the home team! Office Depot, which is based in Delray Beach, today landed a big-ass contract to provide office supplies to Goodrich Corp., the international aerospace firm. Yay!

And maybe that will cushion you for the even-more-recent news that Office Depot will be closing 112 stores nationwide.

Seems like Office Depot will feel the repercussions of this recession more than most. You know, 'cuz when offices close -- like the big ones on the brink of closing in Detroit -- they tend to lose interest in buying office supplies.
