DAPHNE, Ala. -- January 10, 2013

Office Depot® (NYSE: ODP) has developed a new store format that enhances the
shopping experience and encourages customers to interact more with the
Company’s broad range of exciting products and services as well as its highly
trained sales associates. The Office Depot store formerly located at 6935 U.S.
Highway 90 has been reopened at 6900 U.S. Highway 90 Suite 3 with this new
concept.

Although the storefront windows feature graphic overlays to allow people to
see inside the store, the new Office Depot store goes beyond cosmetic changes.
Once inside, consumers are welcomed to the new bluwire store-within-a-store
featuring the coolest tech and mobility products, such as Beats© by Dre
headphones, wireless speakers, cases for iPhone® 5, and accessories for iPad®
and MacBook®. The vast majority of these products are new to Office Depot and
demonstrate a commitment to provide customers with the trendy offerings that
they desire. bluwire is best known for its highly successful tech and mobility
products found in select airports around the country.

With features such as a PC Bar to sit down and plug in their laptops or
tablets, a computer rental station, a recharge station, and free Wi-Fi, the
new Office Depot format is consumer and business friendly. Customers can also
recharge with free self-serve coffee available between the hours of 8 a.m. –
10 a.m., and 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Business services are at the heart – and in the center – of this new store
format. The Print Shop provides a full-offering of services, to make Office
Depot a virtual back office for small businesses. These services include:
same-day business cards, copying, document shredding, custom printing, and
packing and shipping. Notary services will be available soon. (Check with the
Store Manager for details.) In addition, Office Depot’s in-store Tech Services
provides computer repair, network set-up, software installation, virus removal
and more.

The new format is designed for maximum interaction with products and staff.
There are several touch screen displays throughout the store where consumers
can order any product with free delivery^1 from OfficeDepot.com if they are
unable to find it on store shelves. This new feature is available at any of
Office Depot’s 1,100 U.S. retail stores, and sales associates are available to
assist the customer with orders and free shipping.

The Daphne Office Depot Store #3308 employs approximately 15 associates. It
houses nearly 4,500 products – everything from furniture and office supplies
to technology.

Allen McCollum, Store Manager of Office Depot store #3308, has managed this
location during his six-year career with Office Depot. He has resided in
