    Office Depot CEO Announcement Due this Week

    Now stapler you know thats not true...ODP is not the train wreck you'd like everyone to believe.

    You need to start looking around in your own backyard. Staples is laying off as we speak and your BA channel is losing more business than it's winning. Staples had a good plan right up to the CEXP buy and that derailed everything and it's killing you guys. You have no way to integrate Invision with Sunrise so you're on the hook for a completely new platform....and we both know that won't be cheap. And if it's developed by Staples you know it won't work. Staples IT guru's found out how far behind the times they were when they finally saw ISIS work.

    Your stores are too darn big and you may have too many of the them....and leases negotiated at the top of the market....ouch that's got to hurt! Staples has already laid off as many CEXP rep as it can and it's appears that the independents, OMX and ODP have been the beneficiaries. And even though Staples is based in the north east, they could knock of WB before you start bagging on ODP, you need to take a good hard look at SPLS

    Personally I think Staples is a little over extended and it's troubles are just beginning.
