    Office Depot closing Orlando warehouse
    Office Depot Inc. is closing its Orlando transportation and warehousing facility on Gills Drive, laying off 125 employees as it consolidates some of its operations to be more efficient during the recession.The state was notified the workers will be terminated between Feb. 13 and Feb. 24. A company spokesperson said some workers will be relocated to other jobs within Office Depot, but most are being offered severance packages and outplacement services.
    Office Depot  has a similar facility in Westin in South Florida. Orlando will be served either by the Westin center or one in Atlanta, the company said.The move to close the Orlando center was part of Boca Raton-based Office Depot’s announcement in December that it would be closing 112 underperforming retail stores and five warehouses around the country.
