OfficeMax Black Friday Ad Removed

OfficeMax Black Friday Ad RemovedWell, that was fast. Less than 24-hours after we posted the OfficeMax Black Friday advertisement, OfficeMax sent their Spider Solitaire playing law firm after us and provided us with our first Cease & Desist letter of 2009.

It's the standard Black Friday C&D form letter and touches on some of the reasons why we were hesitant to post the advertisement in the first place: the advertisement posted yesterday is not the final version that will go to print. Whether the items and prices change is speculation, but the advertisement released yesterday was definitely a draft of their final ad (misspellings, bad grammar, a couple incorrect SKU #s, etc.).

While we warn that no advertisements released early on this site should be regarded as "official," the majority we receive turn out to be the final version of the advertisement. This was not the case with OfficeMax's advertisement and to prevent visitor/buyer confusion, we are cooperating with this Cease & Desist and have removed the advertisement scan along with the item listings.
