What's the matter?

I was thinking. I have three Staples near me. All within 20 minutes. None of them are ever busy. If all three close, we will no longer have an office supply store within 20 minutes as Office Max and Office depot closed a few years back. Saying that I don't think an office store will be missed either. So many other choices and much better prices.

not surprised. these types of stores get most of their business online on their website anyways, i think it's a good move

Staples is overpriced, but they have some good clearance deals and I like to return my cartridges there for the cash back I get

They closed the one here a long time ago, now all we have is office depot.

hm...i guess its a smart move...the staples near my house is always empty, there's usually the most 5 customers every time i went.

Only thing good for B&M stores are the clearance area's, when they have 50-80%.

Yeah online shopping is destroying retail sales. Oh well looks like Staples had a good run. =[

60 stores worldwide doesn't seem a lot maybe its a good move to concentrate on the stores that are making sales

Limited product lines. Extremely high prices. I wonder why Staples is having to close stores now?

Darn, I guess I'll be looking for some store closing sales. :x I guess OfficeMax's Max Rewards program is too overwhelming

It's a shame that all these different stores are closing down

Not even sure if there is one in the Miami area.

Bad For Loosing Jobs And Hope They Don't Close Near My Place.

Not surprising since online retailers like Amazon offer better prices. Over the years, stores like Circuit City and CompuUsa have either gone kaput or shut their brick and mortar business. BestBuy already started scaling back. Pretty soon Office Depot may follow the same fate. Sad.

Lot of people are now used to do online shopping. May be they don't see a reason for keeping these stores open.

That's too bad!
erick99 Sep 26, 2012
That's not too many stores and it simply may be smart planning. I don't think Staples is in any danger of sinking anytime soon.

Staples is one of my favorite stores, this is sort of sad to see.

Did Walmart and Target eat up some of their business?

probably! poor staples. =( that and online shopping i suspect..

Walmart and Target aren't really their competitors- more like Office Depot and Office Max. And of course, other online sites. Staples is guided to business' for their revenue. Walmart & Target's main distribution line is clothing, products for the home, and electronics (but not for the business) Different marketing totally.

Not surprising at all. My local stores are so slow. Back to school was even slow and they had a few good buys.
