Office Depot, Inc. was founded in 1986 and opened its first store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Office Depot went public with a listing on the NASDAQ in 1988. By the end of 1990 Office Depot had already grown to almost 200 stores with sales topping $626million. That same year, Office Depot announced its merger with The Office Club, Inc., becoming the largest office products retailer in North America.

The growth strategy in the years to follow was realised by many acquisitions: H.Q. Office International, Inc., which included the Great Canadian Office Supplies Warehouse chain in western Canada, Wilson Stationery & Printing Company and Eastman Office Products Corporation. Sales soon exceeded $5billion, with more than 500 retail stores in the US. Office Depot also opened new retail stores in Israel and Colombia under international licensing agreements.

Between 1995 and 1998, the company opened stores in Poland, Hungary and Thailand under international licensing agreements and in Mexico, France and Japan under joint venture agreements. Later, the Company acquired the interests of its joint venture partners in both France and Japan.

In 1998, Office Depot merged with Viking Office Products, a public company based in The Netherlands and the world’s leading direct mail marketer of office supplies. The addition of Viking to the Office Depot organisation not only vastly expanded Office Depot’s international presence (primarily in Europe), but also made the company the leading provider of office products and services in the world.

Venlo Headquarters 1998
That same year, Office Depot launched the first of a number of new websites, www.officedepot.com, which established the company as the industry’s technology leader, expanded its domestic e-commerce capabilities, and ultimately extended the range of products and services Office Depot could offer its customers.

The following year, the company launched its first European eCommerce site, www.viking-direct.co.uk, in the U.K. By 2005, the Company had over 30 international websites. Worldwide eCommerce sales in 2004 totalled $3.1billion, almost a quarter of overall revenue.

The following years Office Depot continued to expand through acquisitions, mergers and partnerships in Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region. In 2006 Office Depot celebrated its 20th anniversary, employing more than 50,000 associates, with sales hitting the $15billion mark.

In 2011 Steve Schmidt was named President International, with responsibilities for all Office Depot operations outside North America. Two years later, Roland C. Smith was appointed as CEO of Office Depot Inc, following the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax, to create an even stronger, more efficient provider of business products, services and solutions for every kind of workplace.

In 2015, Office Depot announced a proposed acquisition by Staples. In May 2016, this acquisition was ultimately prevented by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the US.

In September 2016, Office Depot reached an agreement with the AURELIUS Group for them to acquire the European operations of Office Depot. This transaction closed on 1 January 2017.

Tindal Wines

Tindal Wine Merchants, carefully established in 2004, are a family owned company importing some of the very best wines from around the world for distribution to the trade. Tindal Wine Merchants represent many top wineries world-wide, continuing to add to our growing portfolio.

Searsons retail outlet in Monkstown, Co Dublin – refurbished and extensively expanded, both in range and size – is fast becoming a wine lover’s must visit destination.

We reach all parts of Ireland with dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate members of our team living and working in each province.

Since 2008, we have a range of wines marketed under our own labels:
 Swallows’ Tale from South Africa
 Puna Snipe from Chile – produced from organically grown grapes
 Hooded Plover from Australia
 Wigeon from the Languedoc

Anthony Tindal is involved in the selection and blending of these wines, which are aimed at the discerning buyer looking for interesting wines at a good price and are truly representative of the vineyards and terroirs from whence they came.

We don’t like the use of chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers, nor do we bulk ship our wines as the added handling and increased need for protective treatments impacts on quality. Anthony and his team travel extensively in search of wines considered to be truly representative of their terroir and amongst the best examples we can market and distribute.

As WSET approved program providers we regularly conduct courses covering all levels of wine & spirit training. Our tutor Harriet Tindal, studying for Master of Wine and one of only two accredited Burgundy Tutors in the country. Wine Knowledge and experience is key amongst our staff. Each has a background gaining knowledge of wine with nearly half holding their WSET Diploma. The other half are striving to do so…

Molson Coors

John Molson founded Canada’s oldest beer brewery on the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal. He wrote, “My beer has been universally well-liked beyond my most sanguine expectations.” In 1959, Molson Canadian was first brewed and today is one of Canada’s most iconic and best-selling brands.

Adolph Coors, a penniless brewer’s apprentice, stumbled on the perfect water in Clear Creek at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. 105 years later, Coors Light was born and would go on to be enjoyed by beer drinkers in over 25 countries worldwide.

Frederick J. Miller began his apprenticeships in brewing in adolescence and by 1849 was brewmaster to a prince in Sigmaringen, Hohenzollern. After immigrating to the US in 1854, he settled in Milwaukee then leased and later purchased the suburban Plank Road Brewery for $2,300. He brought a unique brewer’s yeast from Germany – its descendant yeast is still used in some of our beers.
