Clinton OfficeMax to close

CLINTON — The Clinton OfficeMax will close June 29 as officials with the office-supply chain implement a plan to close up to 20 stores this year.

The store, at 2808 S 25th St., employs approximately 16 people. OfficeMax spokesperson Karen Denning would not comment specifically on whether those employees will be transferred to other area stores or laid off, but said the corporation will ensure their transitions this summer are “as smooth as possible.”

Denning said the closure is not related to the merger between OfficeMax and Office Depot, but pointed to the company initiative to close between 15 and 20 stores in 2013. They also will relocate and downsize other locations.

Last year, OfficeMax closed 46 stores, according to comments made by OfficeMax Chief Executive Officer, President and Director Ravichandra Saligram during the company’s first quarter earnings call. The company had already closed five stores within the first quarter.

The company has removed approximately 6 million gross square feet of store space in the U.S. since the beginning of 2005, the transcript states.

Supplies at the store have been marked down in order to clear inventory. Until June 29, the store will maintain regular hours, which are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

A separate sale to sell the store’s fixtures will tentatively be held during limited hours on July 10 and 11. Customers interested in purchasing fixtures can submit their names to a dropbox in the store in order to be notified of the sale.

Customers who use the ImPress Print Center within OfficeMax can have their accounts transferred to either the Davenport store at 320 West Kimberly Road or the Moline, Ill., store at 4215 27th St.

  • John Hood A year after 'chaos'

    It happened two hours after John Hood finished his run. Like many, he thought the loud boom was just the sound of cannons going off, something that shook the ground. It was odd, but Hood — a 1989 Clinton High School graduate — tried to make it logical, associating the noise with another good happening at the Boston Marathon.
