After Office Max closes next month, only KMart and Home Depot will remain in the High Ridge Centre on Highway 31.

The Journal Times reported last week that the 25,000 square foot store will close its doors for good May 16 after almost 22 years in that location.

Office Max and Office Depot merged in 2013, and Office Depot moved from it’s Washington Avenue location where Xperience Fitness is located to a space next to Michael’s in the former Best Buy building.

Company officials wouldn’t tell the newspaper how many employees will be affected, but workers will transition to positions at other stores and receive outplacement assistance as well, the story continues.

What would you like to see happen at this shopping center?
