PLANS TO CUT ANOTHER 800 JOBS

Office Depot announced plans Friday to cut roughly another 800 jobs, including positions in retail stores, its corporate headquarters and its European sales force, officials said. The announcement comes two weeks after officials announced plans to cut 900 jobs as it consolidates operations at eight call centers and offices in six states.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office Depot -- the nation's second-largest office supply retailer -- said it was reducing its staff at retail stores in North America by 2 percent. Altogether, the cuts were estimated to generate $14.2 million in annual savings.
