OfficeMax (NYSE:OMX) has opened eight new stores in Florida, including locations in Naples, Fort Myers, and Cape Coral. The company has also introduced a new multi-purpose store layout designed to offer customers a better shopping experience and a comprehensive selection of office supplies, furniture, equipment and printing services.

OfficeMax offers consumer and small-business clients its End of Rebates Program to eliminate time-consuming mail-in rebates; a complete range of ink and toner options, including refill and recycle services; MaxPerks for Business, which allows customers to earn up to 2 percent back on purchases of $300 or more on qualifying merchandise each quarter; and ctrlcenter, an affordable remote tech support service.

"We are excited to introduce the community to a new type of friendly and accessible store that goes beyond the typical warehouse office supply store," Ryan Vero, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for OfficeMax, said in a statement. "Our store layout is designed to help customers accomplish more in one trip — from buying office supplies to taking care of their printing needs," Vero said.
