    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.

    Staples to close Canton distribution center, cut 89 jobs
    Atlanta Business Chronicle – by Douglas Sams Staff Writer
    Staples
    Inc. is closing its distribution and warehouse building in Canton, Ga.,
    eliminating 89 jobs, the company said.Framingham, Mass.-based Staples
    (Nasdaq: SPLS), the world’s largest office-supply retailer, is shutting
    down its operations at 168 Etowah Industrial Court by June 26, the
    company said.Staples acquired office supplies wholesaler Corporate
    Express, which has its own delivery network, in 2008. Since the
    acquisition, Staples has been trying to integrate its own delivery
    system with that of Corporate Express, said spokesman Owen Davis.The
    company’s review of its delivery networks meant that the Canton
    warehouse and distribution center was no longer needed.
