OfficeMax and Office Depot are in merger talks

The two electronics retailers consider a merger to fight off competition from Staples and Amazon. I think these two companies should have done it a while ago, even their names suggest so. Smile

And Office Depot shares were up 9 percent after the Wall Street Journal reported the two companies were in advanced discussions, citing person familiar with the negotiations, with a deal possible as early as this week.

    I think you are correct on that one! There is an OfficeMax & Staples nearby but Office Depot is nine miles away.

    Yeah, but somehow I doubt "Office Maxpot" will be an appealing name to consumers.

    Of course I suppose that depends on the consumer and of what.

    Blah! I love my local Office Max but hate Office Depot. Considering the 2 stores are only about a half a mile apart in my town I wonder which one will stay. The employees and store layout at Office Depot are horrible but it's a larger store in a slightly better location. Ugh... Evil
