Citing a shift to online purchasing and consolidation in the retail space (OfficeMax/Depot merger), Staples will be closing 10% of its North American stores in the next 18 months.

Staples has already cut its typical store size in half.

    I have to admit I shop at OfficeMax more often than Staples even though they are equally close. Yes the merger probably didn't help their business.

    Too bad, we always like to order online from Staples and pick up our orders in the store. We've gotten some very good deals. We don't have many locations but at the few we do have the employees are much nicer and more knowledgeable than the other office supply places. They are also probably getting competition from Sam's Club, too - recently I noticed that the warehouse club has put in a lot more office supplies than they had before.

    I hope they don't close the one by me. I like Staples so much more than Office Max/Depot. The staff is so much more friendly, and like HouTex, I have found some great deals.
