Xpedx Paper Stores will be closing its location at 2443 N. Union Boulevard on April 30.
The national paper company, which provides paper and supplies for printers and businesses, announced earlier this month that it would close nearly all of its retail locations, but will continue to provide online services through its Xpedx.com center and its locations in Denver. The company has a distribution center and a store in Denver.
In addition to shuttering the store on Union, the company will close one at 5290 Vance St. in Arvada, company spokeswoman Lisa Jonas wrote in an email.
Jonas said the distribution center at 1735 Jet Stream Dr. in Colorado Springs closed last year, and local customers are using the center in Denver.
Xpedx will continue to operate two facilities in Denver – a large distribution center located at 3900 Lima St. and the Xpedx Paper store at 106 S. Santa Fe Dr.
“Xpedx has been evaluating how to best position its operations within the quickly changing print industry,” according to a release about the closures.
Jonas wrote in an email that the Arvada store that’s closing has five employees and the one on North Union Boulevard has four employees.
“To meet our long-term growth plan we will transition from our current stores model and begin servicing many of our customers from Xpedx’s well-established distribution network,” Xpedx’s vice president, Communications Rick Ouellette said in a statement, “as well as from 14 additional locations in 10 markets with high concentrations of digital printers.”
Employees at the closing stores will continue to work with Xpedx until services have been fully transferred to the distribution center.
