Office Depot teams up with Dormify.

Office Depot LLC. is expanding its collection of college dorm and school supplies in collaboration with another retailer.

The specialty office supplies retailer, an operating company of The ODP Corp. which runs Office Depot and Office Max stores as well as the Office Depot e-commerce site, is partnering with online dorm décor retailer Dormify

Timed for the upcoming 2024-25 academic year, the partnership will make furniture, storage and décor items ranging from $15.99 to $309.99 in 200 Office Depot and Office Max stores and on the Office Depot site. Items will be available throughout the summer and with the option to ship to another store location for pickup in a customer’s college area during move-in. 

Customers who buy Dormify products from Office Depot online can also utilize the retailer’s free 20-minute in-store/curbside pickup or free delivery on orders over $35. Other retailers including home storage and storage goods retailer The Container Store have also previously partnered with Dormify to feature its products during back-to-school season.

"Our partnership with Dormify allows Office Depot OfficeMax to offer more college dorm supplies through our efficient and versatile shopping and shipping options," said Kevin Moffitt, executive VP of The ODP Corporation and president of Office Depot. "We're passionate about enabling our customers' educational goals and providing students with the tools to be successful is an essential part of that mission. We are proud to empower students of all ages to thrive and positively impact the world.”

“The preparation for college move-in is rife with to-do lists, errands, and tasks. We're committed to making the process as easy as possible by simplifying the logistics and have found a great partner in Office Depot," said Amanda Zuckerman, co-founder of Dormify. "We’re thrilled that students and their families will have the opportunity to see, feel and shop our products in-person at Office Depot in 200 markets that are around the corner from so many campuses. Students will also be able to place orders over the summer at a store near their hometown and have it ready for pickup at an Office Depot location near their school during move-in — a critical offering that we know our customers are requesting."

Through Monday, June 24, consumers can enter for one of 10 chances to win a $500 Office Depot OfficeMax merchandise card to put toward a dorm room for the upcoming school year. No purchase necessary.

Headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., Office Depot employs 13,000 store associates across 1,500 stores.
