I,m looking at the new location of Office Max in Brentwood at 6061 Lone Tree Way. I have over five years with Office Max, and had opened Five,plus was sent out many time with my pick of employee to do resets,as per the District manager (John Huspeths). I started out opening the first three into California which where BizMart,until K-Mart bought out BizMart,be coming Office Max. I live about two miles from this location,which would work out well for Office Max and myself. When I left the company in 1995, I was the assisant store manager in concord,Ca. I have a total of retail,wholesale and own businesses of over thirty-seven years. And have been many various types of managers within the buildings.
