Office Depot Poster

In todays email from Office they have made a poster in big red letters "I'M WITH SMOKE'. I ran a couple off and will put at least one in a car window. I can see where Office Depot is going to be sad when they have to leave sponsoring SHR #14 next season. He will be at one of their store in the Chicago area for the next race. That's my boy "loyal to the end."

Re: Office Depot Poster

Thanks NDunn.......I talked to the manager at the OD about three miles from me and they were so sorry to see the sponsorship for Tony go.....a lot of his customers are loyal fans and their T S merchandise brought a lot of people in, that would normally not shop there. They all said how much they loved Tony for all that he did for OD and especially the backpack program. Basically it had to do with the economy and the struggle people are having just to buy groceries...... :(
They like everyone else are just grateful they still have a job...very sad

Re: Office Depot Poster

I found it hard to believe that there isn't an Office Depot in Phoenix. This is a very large area and that's why I was so surprised. What's even more strange, they have 3 in Tuscon. Tuscon? Really? Maybe part of their problem is location, location, location... The company I work for is one of the largest employers in AZ. A corp. HQ, numerous hotels, luxury resorts, etc. Jeff Gordon normally stays at our Phoenician hotel when in town. By the way, he's not very nice or very generous to the staff and they are one of the finest in the country. We ordered our office supplies from Office Max. Maybe they need to put some of that sponsorship money they'll be saving, into their marketing department.

Re: Office Depot Poster

haha, in my area, Lowe's and Home Depot are across the street from each other. When Tony was driving for HD, I would try to only shop there. Now, I go to Lowe's. The store is nicer and I tend to be able to find my way around easier. But, if I don't find what I need, I head to HD. I do seem to be able to find what I'm looking for more often at Lowe's than HD, but, now that Matty is going to the 20, I'll have to rethink that... :mrgreen:

Re: Office Depot Poster

I've heard many people say that Home Depot is setup for men to find things and Menards is setup for women. There may be some truth to it as I like to shop at Home Depot and my wife likes to shop at Menards,

Re: Office Depot Poster

We have no way of going to a local store to get stuff having to do with Tony around here because in New England there are only 3 stores for Office Depot. One in Massachusetts and two in Conneticut.

Now if Staples was his sponsor there are stores all over New England...totalling more than 160.

Re: Office Depot Poster

I just did a print out of all the stores for Staples...just because I was curious...and crossed off any duplicates I may have done by mistake and there are 214 Staples stores in New England.

To take a little further. Staples has more than 2000 stores nationwide and Office Depot has almost 1100 stores. A big difference.

Re: Office Depot Poster

Just a question of no big deal but does Staples sponsor anyone or product?
Office has been in NASCAR for at least Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. I've never been to Office Depot as the only one I know of is 45 miles away. We have at least 2 Staples and the customer service is below par. But they do know how to locate. One is at the edge of Michigan State U.

Re: Office Depot Poster

Staples used to be in Nascar and it was with Kyle Busch in the Nationwide Series in '08, '09, & '10. I can't find anything more recent than that. That does not mean that there is not, it just means I have not found it yet. I know there was a period time when they ran in the Cup Series. I am just trying to remember who with.

As for the customer service at Staples, I have not had any problems at any of the stores in our region and I was one of their mystery shoppers for a couple of years as well as an online evaluator. I also am a business owner who is a premier rewards customer. Although I only just recently ran into issues with the website and it has taken almost two months to straighten it out. Geez.

Thanks. I think I'll go into Jayski's paint scheme site and see if I can find Staples on any of the race cars. It will be sort of interesting to what has been around.
As for the Staples customer service that may just be local. One of ours left a local region and went about 5 or 6 miles from the city limits and into a retail village with names such as WalMart, Lowes, Menards, Furniture Row, A big outdoor sports supply place (can't think of the name) and many more smaller stores with national names. It ws a smart move for the developer as it is just off an exsit for I 96 and I 69.

Re: Office Depot Poster

It used to be a bright red car that said Staples on the hood and under the word Staples it said "that was easy". This is their moto or slogin. This also appeared on the deck lid.

At first when I heard they were pulling their sponsorship in Nascar, I was shocked...but when I found out they were also closing 26 stores and having to lay off hundreds of employees. It kind of made sense.
