Office Max closing, Ross moving in

In anticipation of its July 26th scheduled closing, OfficeMax in Mountain View's Rengstorff Center is liquidating its entire inventory. Several large signs advertising "Up to 50% off," went up last month to announce the office supply store's closure. Mountain View's OfficeMax is one of approximately 400 stores to close nationwide.

The shutdowns are the result of last year's merger of Office Depot with OfficeMax. In Mountain View, the vacancy caused by the closing of OfficeMax in Rengstorff Center, at the intersection of Leghorn Street and adjacent to the onramps to U.S. Highway 101, will be short-lived. Ross Stores is planning to fill the 24,000-square-foot-spot, said an industry source. Ross will be re-locating from its current spot in San Antonio Center.

Ross' move is somewhat surprising since its current lease does not expire until 2016, but because of the construction nearby, making parking lot access a little more complicated, Ross was more than happy to get out of its lease earlier, the source said.
