“We’ve seen personalization sweep across the fashion industry, so we’re
bringing that trend to school supplies,” said Petter Knutrud, senior
vice president for Office Depot, Inc. “To add extra flair to notebooks,
composition books and backpacks, students can personalize their supplies
with a wide assortment of tassels, pom-poms, stickers, charms and more.”
Another trend shoppers will take advantage of this back-to-school season
is shopping for supplies online – e-commerce is expected to grow nearly 15
percent, according to eMarketer. Office Depot’s omni-channel options
make it simple for customers to shop online at officedepot.com/school
from any device or location, and decide whether to have supplies
delivered directly to their front door, or use the convenient buy
online, pick up in-store program. Free in-store pick up lets shoppers
get their items approximately one hour after the order is placed to save
even more time in their busy schedules.
“Shopping at Office Depot and OfficeMax is more simple now than ever,”
said Knutrud. “With our omni-channel options, customers can choose the
method of shopping that works best for them – whether in-store, online
or a combination of both, to fit their busy schedules and get all the
supplies they need at great prices to start a successful school year.”
