International News - Office Depot set for Spain outlets

US office products retailer Office Depot is to make its debut in Spain within two months.

Office Depot plans to open six office supplies superstores in Madrid by April.

The stores will be an adaptation of the retailer's European model, offering a broad range of products designed to meet the needs of Spanish small and medium-sized businesses.

Office Depot's supply chain is already in place. The retailer has been operating its Viking Direct mail order business in Spain since April last year.

Chairman and chief executive Bruce Nelson said: 'We will focus on building store density in the Madrid market area.'
