In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
PLEASE don't allow the wealthiest in our country to destroy businesses and jobs in the name of getting a few more dollars in their pockets. As a concerned American citizen (and voter) it's important to me to have choices as a consumer, choices keep prices affordable and, most importantly, products available. I live in a community that has a Staples, but no other office store of that nature within an hour's drive - if the merger is allowed and our local Staples closes, I will have fewer options and people in my community will lose precious jobs (in an area that cannot afford to lose jobs!). I implore you to deny this merger.
