The Office Depot located in the Hyde Park Shopping Center, 5420 S. Lake Park Ave., will close its doors in November.
“We’ll wind down operations at this location, and it would just be simply for anyone picking up remaining fixtures and stuff like that, so it won’t be open to the public after that date,” said interim manager Stephen S., a 15-year Office Depot employee. The store’s final day in business will be Saturday, Nov. 11.
“It’s been here for quite a while, so there’s a strong tie for a lot of customers in the area,” he said. “The news is obviously kind of a shock to everyone … Hyde Park customers (say the area) is really underserved.”
The retail chain sells everything from basic office supplies to furniture and offers printing, copying, faxing, shredding and shipping services. It also has an in-store IT help desk.
