A further pair of branches of the office retail titan are closing their doors for the last time.
Two more Staples locations have been added to the continually-growing list of branch closures that has so far claimed multiple stores.
A company statement said it was “taking aggressive action to right-size our retail footprint”, as custom moves increasingly online. It added that the closures were the result of continual evaluation of store performance, “to ensure we’re operating the business in the best way.”
The West Shore and Fort Wayne closures join an increasingly lengthy litany of branches that have finally brought the shutters down in 2018, including those Lompoc, California, and Vernon and West Hazleton, both also in Pennsylvania.
Staples added: “We are committed to providing great service and every product businesses need whether it’s in-store, online or through mobile.”
