Founded in 1986, Office Depot got its start in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida.

By 2013, Office Depot and OfficeMax had joined together, which led to the closure of hundreds of stores and leaning more into their online presence.

Office Depot - News
Early in 2022, acquisition bids for Office Depot brought many business talks for the company. With the idea of splitting or merging with Staples or another unnamed suitor, Office Depot spent months in consideration. Another offer was also made to spinoff its retail arm, separating part of the company from the rest. But by June 2022, Office Depot finally made the decision to keep their business whole, intact and independent.
