Stocks in this article: ODP

Office Depot (NYSE:ODP) today announced results from the Office Depot Holiday Survey that revealed nationwide shoppers’ perspectives on the hottest products and top trends for the upcoming season. Among the most notable survey findings, results showed that a majority of shoppers (58%) prefer to have the gift of time or money, even over more family (24%) and friends (5%), this holiday season. With shoppers’ holiday wishes top of mind, Office Depot is helping customers buy, create, personalize and ship the season’s most coveted gifts.

The Hottest Technology of the Season

The Office Depot Holiday Survey results revealed that smartphones (44%), tablets (36%) and eReaders (32%) top the charts for leading gift choices. To cater to these customer preferences, Office Depot has stocked the hottest technology gifts, including the Kindle Fire HD, a full line of Windows 8 software, all-in-one desktops, laptops and tablets, Monster Inspiration Headphones, Keurig Vue Brewer, and smartphone accessories, including cases for iPhone® 5, for shoppers to “WOW” everyone on their lists.

Personalizing Gift Giving

Beyond insights on top technology gifts, survey results also uncovered that nearly 94 million Americans plan to spice up their holiday lists with customized products. Shoppers can count on Office Depot’s Copy & Print Depot™ to create one-of-a-kind gifts including holiday cards for businesses and families, customized calendars, and photo gifts, such as personalized cases for iPhone® 5, tablet covers, ornaments, and canvas prints.

Gifting the Gifts and Getting them Shipped

To help shoppers save even more time this holiday season, Office Depot offers U.S. Postal Service and UPS in-store shipping options that allow customers to ship their gifts immediately after purchasing them. With Americans spending approximately 3.5 hours standing in line during the festive season, according to the Office Depot Holiday Survey, these convenient shipping options allow shoppers to quickly go from check out to ship out, at all Office Depot destinations, nationwide. Catering specifically to the busy shopper, the convenient shipping services are also available during weekends and late evenings, at times when customers are most likely to tackle their holiday shopping.

“Time and money are at the top of our customers’ wish lists, and with the most popular gifts at all the right prices, Office Depot is a true one-stop-shop for the holidays,” said Bob Moore, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer for Office Depot. “We are ready to ‘WOW’ our customers this year, with everything they need to round out their holiday shopping experience.”
