OfficeMax Inc. has announced the opening of its first Chicago-area OfficeMax Business Solutions Center — the retailer's new store format designed to provide service-centric offerings to local businesses.
The 3,900-square-foot retail space offers solutions that include subscription IT services; PC security; computer maintenance and repair; website design; custom print and document services, marketing support; and tools to organize and manage workspaces, including cloud storage, according to the news release.
In addition to an array of business services and office products, customers have access to the full portfolio of OfficeMax products and offerings via an endless aisle, an in-store online kiosk where customers can purchase products and have them shipped direct.
"We're very pleased to bring our highly innovative 'store of the future' concept, the OfficeMax Business Solutions Center, to Chicago to partner with local businesses and help them grow," said Ravi Saligram, president and CEO of OfficeMax. "This relationship-based model provides flexibility to tailor services, products and solutions to the unique needs of businesses at various stages of growth."
