    A Dying Industry!

    With all the stores out there selling office supplies, ODP is on its last legs. Heck, you can now buy supplies from Staples in supermarkets. Computers, bah! There is no longer any money in that. Even Dell is now having troubles. Watch some of these Office suppliers go under as the economy weakens under a $16 trillion national debt in the next few years.

    • A company that sells paper is just what a dollar-printing country needs.

    • by the way, the experiment where Staples was supplying school and office supplies to Supermarket Chains failed miserably and no longer exists. The technology aspect of the Office Superstores is faulty because they cannot obtain Apple which is the biggest selling tech brand out there. Best Buy has it, Walmart has it but not Office Depot or Staples. The smaller store idea is one that hopefully gets them back to the roots of office supplies and higher turning product with some profit as opposed to trying to be a technology and supplies retailer.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Sure, when you need tons of paper or other supplies you go to supermarket, or online instead of stop by closest to you office supply store, - good one!
