Office Depot Closes Winnipeg Stores
There were only none Office Depot stores in Canada. Now they are all closing including the two in Winnipeg.
There is one on Ness Avenue in the Madison Square parking lot and one on Pembina Highway.
It would appear that Staples will have the big box market to itself in Winnipeg.
The Free Press says that Office Depot had a presence since 1992 in Canada. However, the Office Depot location has been a office store since 1987. I can't recall it being anything else other than an Office Depot.
It is interesting to note that Office Depot has not outlasted Sportsman Marine which refused to be bought out and was bullied for years by security to give up their spot in the Office Depot parking lot.
