In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
I'm very concerned that the Staples merger will create fewer purchasing options for consumers. I'm opposed to mergers that force consumers, such as myself, to shop at places I wouldn't ordinarily shop at because of higher prices and less diversity in products. I urge the FTC to not authorize this merger as it hurts consumers.
