Office Depot is making it easier to get same-day delivery.

Office Depot LLC is adding a new online delivery partner.

The specialty office supply retailer is now partnering with same-day delivery platform DoorDash to offer on-demand delivery of products from more than 1,000 Office Depot and OfficeMax stores nationwide. The assortment of products available for online delivery via DoorDash include laptop and desktop computers, printers, ink and toner, cleaning and breakroom supplies, and tech accessories.

Consumers can shop from Office Depot through DoorDash’s marketplace app or website, and get them delivered directly to their doorstep on-demand. Office Depot products will also be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers $0 delivery fees on eligible orders. Office Depot is the first specialty office supply retailer available on the DoorDash marketplace.

Meanwhile, Office Depot has been steadily increasing its omnichannel fulfillment capabilities, both internally and via third-party partnerships, in recent years. Since April 2020, Office Depot and OfficeMax stores have also been offering same-day delivery via the third-party Shipt and Deliv platforms in as little as one hour on qualifying orders. Office Depot is partnering with Shipt and Deliv to enable customers to place orders on the Office Depot website and choose a window for delivery.

In addition, Office Depot recently began offering a new in-store and curbside pickup service called “20 Minute Pickup Promise.” Having been introduced in late 2021 in time for the holiday season, customers can now use the new service by placing a qualifying order online via the Office Depot e-commerce site or mobile app and selecting “In-Store or Curbside Pickup” at checkout at least one hour before the store’s closing time.

“As we continue to expand into new categories to meet consumers’ need for convenience, we are thrilled to add Office Depot as our premier office and business and learning solutions retailer on the DoorDash platform,” said Shanna Prevé, VP, business development, DoorDash. “Whether working from home, the office, or a hybrid of the two, customers can have peace of mind knowing that the office supplies and essentials they need are available for on-demand delivery at the tap of a button.” 

“At Office Depot, we’re committed to providing small business owners, home office professionals, students and teachers with the solutions they need to help them accomplish their goals while working and learning from anywhere,” said Jamie Columbus, VP of e-commerce for Office Depot. “We’re proud to partner with DoorDash to offer our customers another fast and convenient way to get what they need, when and where they need it.” 

Office Depot LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The ODP Corp., a provider of business services and supplies, products and digital workplace technology solutions to small, medium and enterprise businesses, through an integrated business-to-business distribution platform and approximately 1,100 stores.

Founded in 2013, DoorDash is a technology company that provides same-day delivery from local and national businesses in more than 7,000 cities across the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan and Germany.
