retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Wall Street Journal reports that Office Depot has begun offering US Postal Service (USPS) products and services - including Priority Mail flat rate shipping and stamps for sale in books and large coils - at its stores around the country.

According to the story, both Office Depot and the Post Office are looking to improve their fortunes in a tough economy.
