Our Story

As the working world evolves, so does Office Depot. We're thinking differently as a company and transforming our business from a supplies-based retailer to a comprehensive B2B platform provider and marketplace. In business, we all need that go-to resource that understands what you need and how to deliver it to you. At Office Depot, our workforce strives to always have your back, anticipate your actions and fundamentally make business success easier for YOU. We continue to be the trusted platform our customers rely on to start, manage and grow their business.

We fuel the future of work for the advancement of businesses, communities, and the world. We give you the freedom to accomplish more.

Taking on this new era in business, our team of game-changers, free-thinkers, and transformers are our most valuable asset in helping us accomplish more.
