Well, 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.

We have just posted the 48-item Office Max Black Friday advertisement listing and their 4-page Office Max Black Friday advertisement scans. We originally hesitated on posting this advertisement because it is either a very in-progress version of the advertisement or a fake.

However, pretty much all of the item SKU #'s line up with OfficeMax offerings, the prices aren't out of the ordinary and if this is a fake, it's very well done. This marks the first Black Friday advertisement from ... [More]
