Delray Beach, FL–Because technology products are among the most frequently requested items of its online customers, office supplies giant Office Depot has agreed to acquire privately held online-only technology marketers Computers4Sure.com and Solutions4Sure.com. In addition to its retail chain, Office Depot owns cataloger Viking Office Products.

Computers4Sure offers more than 60,000 SKUs of hardware, software, and networking supplies for the small office/home office and consumer markets. Solutions4Sure.com sells computer and other technology products for small and midsize businesses. The parent company of the two sites, 4Sure.com, was founded in 1998 by Bruce Martin, a former president/chief operating officer of computer cataloger Multiple Zones International (now Zones) and Linwood A. Lacy Jr., formerly chariman/CEO of Ingram Micro.
