Does someone have a list of Office Max stores that will be closing in 2014? I saw the announcement and wanted to see if someone has more details - I work in West LA.

I'm also in Southern California... looking to buy bulk lots of inventory from store closings. Could help you out if you know your store is closing!
Which Office Max is closing
Thanks Anonymous9237, great post
The first 150 will close in the next 12 months. Those are written in stone, but will be a closely guarded secret until the second half of 2014. This is for numerous reasons. You don't want good talent to jump ship, and you want Staples to be in an unstoppable closing mode (if you announce now, they many halt certain closures to maintain a certain market). The other 300 (for a total of 450 closures, wrongly reported as 400) will be shuttered within 3 years. The other 300 have not been determined. Many things are being looked at in considering what stores to close. Not just profit and loss, but existing leases, expense on sister stores when dropping to below 3 stores in a market, marketing costs, freight costs, etc. Hold on tight, it will be a bumpy June.
918, in Charlotte, NC will be closed for sure - I do not have any insider info but I know that our numbers do not add up
