Blurb: Office Depot now under investigation in Colorado

From the Denver Post:

The Colorado Attorney General’s office is investigating Office Depot’s pricing practices through its U.S. Communities contract program, which allows public agencies to join already negotiated low-bid contracts, according to an Office Depot spokesman.

Colorado is the fourth state to launch an investigation into Office Depot’s pricing policies.

The Cherry Creek School District, which was contacted by the attorney general’s office, said it audited its purchases of 21,549 items over two years, finding that it was overcharged about $2,000.

Just another in the long line of investigations piling up behind our favorite big-box superstore. And by “favorite” I mean…well, you know.
