An office supplies retailer is applying a dab of Wite-Out to its city presence.
Office Depot is scheduled to permanently close its store at the Shops at Stratford Hills shopping center Aug. 21, a company spokeswoman said in an email Thursday. It’s the chain’s only location within the city limits.
The spokeswoman didn’t respond to a question about why the location is closing.
There are a total of three Office Depot and seven OfficeMax locations in the Richmond region, according to an online store locator. Both chains are owned by Florida-based parent company The ODP Corp.
Office Depot’s Stratford Hills space is at 7101-A Forest Hill Ave., which is next to the shopping center’s Publix. The store occupies about 18,000 square feet, according to city property records.
The owner of the shopping center is Harper Associates, which developed the center in the early 2000s and has plans to expand it with new construction that would be home to a Chipotle and townhomes.
Baby clothing nonprofit Little Hands recently moved into the shopping center, which also features a Target.
