O w office warehouse

   OW was founded in 1988 in Virginia Beach, VA and was modeled after Office Depot. OW opened its first three stores in three different markets in one hundred days. O W continued to double its store count every six months for two and one-half years ending 1991 with a 44-store chain.
     OW was developed from an idea on paper to a 44-store chain with $200 million in sales in less than three years. OW completed a private placement memorandum (PPM) offering, an initial public offering (IPO) and a successful trade sale to OfficeMax, a competitor. The Founder and his Poland CFO played a leading role in the start up, development and sale of O.W. Office Warehouse to OfficeMax in 1992. OW was a 44-store office supply chain with $200 million in sales after only three years of operations. O.W. Office Warehouse sold for $76 million, rewarding most early investors $28 for every dollar invested.
