Office Depot celebrates opening of new location

Office Depot celebrated the opening of its new location in Grand Junction with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and donations to three nonprofit organizations.

The new location at 2455 U.S. Highway 6 & 50, which formerly housed a Circuit City outlet, was remodeled to offer a new layout and other upgrades.

The front end of the store features a copy and print depot along with technical services. Elsewhere, products have been grouped in pods with office supplies on one side of the store and consumer electronics on the other side. The office furniture area offers additional product lines and was relocated to the back of the store to better support consultative sales. The store also features carpeting and new signs.

A total of 26 full and part-time employees work at Office Depot in Grand Junction.

The new store is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

As part of the grand opening celebration for the new location, the Office Depot Foundation donated 100 new children’s book bags and $100 each to the Western Slope Center for Children, Child & Migrant Services and the Sozo Youth Sanctuary Foundation.

“Office Depot is committed to strengthening the communities where our company conducts business,” said Gary Grant, manager of the Grand Junction store. “We are excited to introduce our new store in Grand Junction and to assist these outstanding local nonprofit organizations in their efforts to make a difference in the lives of children and families in our community.”
