Office Depot, Inc. Gears up for Grads & Dads Gifting

Office Depot Survey Finds Dorm Room Furniture, Tech Products Are Hot Items for this Year’s Grads

BOCA RATON, Fla.--()--Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ:ODP), a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions, and parent company of Office Depot and OfficeMax knows this time of year is important to honor graduates and dads. With the latest in tech products and dorm room essentials including accessories, Office Depot and OfficeMax retail stores are the season’s go-to destination for graduation and Father’s Day gifts.

“With so many options, buying gifts for special occasions such as graduation and Father’s Day is becoming increasingly challenging,” said Tim Rea, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Office Depot, Inc. “We offer a one-stop shop for everyone’s gifting needs. Whether you are looking for dorm room furniture to gift that graduating high school senior or the latest in tech gear for dad, your local Office Depot and OfficeMax stores have it.”

When it comes to graduation gifts, the latest Office Depot Personal Shopper Index found that price and release dates for the hottest technology products are two of the most important factors considered in purchasing a graduation gift. On average, consumers expect to pay more for a high school graduation gift ($142) than a college graduation gift ($95). While gift cards or money are the most popular gifts for high school and college grads, dorm room furniture and accessories for high school grads and technology gifts for college grads are the second most popular items.

“While graduation gifts are top of mind, Father’s Day is also fast approaching,” said Rea. “Office Depot offers a number of hot gear and related items that all dads would love, including a large assortment of popular technology products, from laptops to Bluetooth speakers, as well as quality office gear to help dads stand out. Office furniture and desk chairs are also great gift ideas to help dads spruce up their workspace.”
