In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
As a rural solo lawyer who has to purchase office supplies, I strongly oppose any merger that will be disincentive to free market competition and allow smaller markets to be dominated by a monopoly. In small towns there is already a very limited number of office supply companies and reducing that further will be detrimental to the legal process as I will have to charge my low income clients more to cover the price increases.
