What the company is doing

The second-largest deep-discount office supermarket retailer in the United States is OfficeMax Inc. In 1995 the company worked in over 41 States and Puerto Rico with over 400 superstores and expected to open over 150 more stores in two years. It is a subsidiary of The ODP Corporation based in Boca Raton, Florida. The company has also experimented with similar business models, including a chain of furniture and a range of copy-service centers.

The history of the brand

Bob Hurwitz and Michael Feuer established OfficeMax in Cleveland, Ohio, on 1 April 1988. As a basic concept, OfficeMax began in 1988. The company has been leading the U.S. supply industry in just over five years and generated annual sales of over $2 trillion by 1995 and good profit by 1993. Despite intense competition and an economic recession that started in the late 1980s and lasted throughout the early 1990s, the business achieved this stunning success. In the 1990s, other supermarket retailers borrowed the company's knowledgeable selling, distributing, managing, and financial structures and strategies.
