ARLINGTON, Texas -- December 19, 2012

Office Depot® (NYSE: ODP) has built an entirely new store experience for its
customers and is celebrating its opening in Arlington. The Office Depot store
formerly located at 2501 E. Randol Mill Road has relocated to 780 E. Road to
Six Flags St., Suite 210 with a new concept created to encourage customers to
interact more with products, with Office Depot associates, and with each other
– all in a brand new store designed around the way customers want to shop.

The new Office Depot store goes way beyond mere cosmetic changes. The
storefront windows feature graphic overlays which allow people to see inside
the store from the sidewalk.

Once inside, consumers are welcomed to the new bluwire store-within-a-store
featuring the coolest tech and mobility products such as cases for iPhone® 5,
accessories for iPad® and MacBook®, Beats© by Dre headphones, and wireless
speakers – with the vast majority of these products being new to Office Depot.
bluwire is best known for its highly successful tech and mobility products
offered in select airports around the country.

In fact, the new Arlington Office Depot store features a PC Bar where people
can sit down, plug in their laptop or tablet and get to work. There is also a
computer rental station, free Wi-Fi throughout the store, a recharge station
and free, self-serve coffee available between the hours of 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.,
and 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Interactivity is one of the key features of the new store with several touch
screen displays throughout the store where consumers can order any product
from if they are unable to find it on store shelves. And best
of all, delivery is free.^1 It is not just in Arlington either. If customers
are unable to find what they are looking for while shopping in any of our
1,100 retail stores, they can purchase it online with the assistance of an
in-store sales associate and it will be shipped for free.

A full offering of business services are in the center – at the heart – of
this new store. The Print Shop provides same-day business cards, copying,
document shredding, custom printing, and packing and shipping, making Office
Depot a virtual back office for small business.

Office Depot’s Tech Services provides computer repair, network set-up,
software installation, virus removal and more.

The Arlington Office Depot Store #3304 employs approximately 15 associates. It
houses nearly 5,500 products – everything from furniture and office supplies
to technology.

Chris White, Store Manager of Office Depot store #3304, managed another
Arlington-area store for seven years. He currently resides in Arlington.

Store hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. You also can reach this Office Depot store
