Office Depot Opens Store on Amazon
The agreement is similar to Amazon's deals with Target and Toys 'R' Us. It calls for Amazon.com to process the transaction for the customer while Office Depot manages inventory and product fulfillment of merchandise through its national network of 24 distribution centers.
In addition, Office Depot will provide all product-related customer service associated with Office Depot product orders placed on Amazon.com. Amazon will provide customer service related to Web site functionality and credit card transactions.
Office Depot said its selection will be tailored to the personal office products user. Customers can access Amazon.com features like customer reviews, search and personalization. The Office Products store offers Office Depot products in addition to the office-related products already available at Amazon.com. Amazon and Office Depot products are now included in one store with a shared checkout for all merchandise whether purchased from Amazon.com or Office Depot.
