FedEx bought the Kinko's chain of copy shops in 2004, and the name changed to FedEx-Kinko's. Now, FedEx says it is dropping the "Kinko's" and changing the name again — to FedEx Office.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Our last word is another farewell to a brand name. The word is Kinko's, you know, like I'm going to Kinko's to get a copy. It was bought by FedEx in 2004 and the name changed to FedEx Kinko's. FedEx has announced changing the name again. The copy shops will now be called simply FedEx Office. No more Kinko's.
