OfficeMax opening today

Posted: February 19, 2012 - 1:09am

Whether you’re out shopping for the staples or a stapler this weekend, OfficeMax is holding a grand-opening celebration today that features a three-dimensional rubber band ball cake.

The celebration is also a first chance for people to vote for a local school to receive $1,000 in supplies as part of OfficeMax’s “A Day Made Better” program. Juneau store visitors can vote between Feb. 19 and Feb. 25.

The event happens from noon to 6 p.m., with gift bags for the first 500 customers and the chance to win a Kindle Fire among other prizes and giveaways.

The shindig kicks off Sunday at noon with a ribbon cutting, food and beverages, according to an OfficeMax press release. The cake will be in the shape of a three-dimensional rubber-band ball, an homage to the company’s recent ad featuring Rubberband Man by the Spinners and actor and comedian, Eddie Steeples bit.ly/ybUGAH.

Other gifts include custom-printed business cards, a premium computer tune-up, a TSA-friendly messenger bag and office supplies.

The office supply store is located on the east side of the Nugget Mall for those who have not been by in a while. The store lacks an entrance directly into the main mall, due mainly to differing hours, but also due to the store’s layout, OfficeMax store manager Chuck Collins said.
