Closure of OfficeMax in Irvine Market Place – Orange County Register

The OfficeMax on Jamboree Road on the sprawling Irvine Market Place is closing.

The store’s staff informed the registry that the store will be closed until mid-June.

In addition to clearing the goods, all shop fittings are also for sale.

Office supply stores have been hit hard by a changing retail scene as more and more shoppers buy their goods online or from retailers like Walmart, Target and Costco. OfficeMax and Office Depot have closed hundreds of branches across the country in recent years.
