New York City -- Office Depot will celebrate the grand opening of its new store in Austin, Texas, on Sept. 27.
The new store features a number of upgrades designed with the customer in mind, including colorful and clear signage, and carpeted floors for a warmer feel. The floor plan is simple to navigate with a layout that is intuitive, logical and convenient for the customer to shop.
Products are grouped together in highly visible, strategically located “pods,” with core office supplies on one side of the store and consumer electronics on the opposite side – all signed for optimal visibility and ease of purchase. The furniture area has also been updated with additional product lines and assortments, and is located in the back of the store to better support consultative sales.
The front end of the store has been simplified to feature Office Depot’s Copy & Print Depot and Tech Depot Services, both of which are located adjacent to the cash registers.
