It could be, as aviationwiz pointed out, a matter of cutting off the diseased limbs (i.e. the stores that are not profitable). The real trick is to find out whether or not OfficeMax is opening any new stores in other locations. If they do open new stores, then you won't have to worry about them going under...at least not any time soon. If they continue to close stores without opening new ones, then I fear this is the beginning of the end for OfficeMax.
No, I like women.
