After a little over a year in business, the Office Depot in El Centro is set to close.
Florida-based Office Depot Inc. announced yesterday it would close 67 of its stores in the United States, locations the company is calling "underperforming stores."
Lauren Garvey, director of media relations for the company, confirmed yesterday that the local store was one of five locations statewide that the company plans to close.
About 1,400 employees have been affected by the store closures nationwide. The local store, at 650 N. Imperial Ave., employs 21 people.
