    You could ask a specific person, 'What time are you off work?'
    Of course a person may be off earlier or later than the office closes. So if you want to know about the office, you could ask 'What time does the office close?' or 'What time do you close?'
    As in your supermarket sentence, "you" will be understood to mean the (office)(business).
