Portland, OR — Office Depot, a leading global provider of office supplies and services, has been rolling out smaller store formats across the U.S., and Portland-based shoppers can now benefit from this new format at the downtown Office Depot (604 SW Washington St.).
The newly remodeled Office Depot store, which was one of the larger formats when it originally opened 13 years ago, has been redesigned to a new, smaller format. This is the first Office Depot store in the Pacific Northwest with the smaller format.
The downtown Portland location features a number of green building elements, including the following:
• T5 energy-saving lights and reflectors allowing use of two bulbs instead of three per fixture.
• Daylight and occupancy sensors to reduce energy use.
• Energy Management Systems to allow tracking and central control of energy usage.
• Reused store shelving and fixtures.
• Recycled content carpet.
• Interior finishes made up of low VOC emitting materials.
“By creating smaller stores we’re reducing our retail footprint, our energy footprint and our carbon footprint,” says Yalmaz Siddiqui, senior director of environmental strategy at Office Depot.
From colorful and clear signage to a simple-to-navigate floor plan, the Office Depot store was redesigned based on customer feedback and shopping patterns. All of the technology products are located on one side of the store, and supplies on the other. Both the Copy & Print Depot and cashiers can be found in the front.
