In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Reject the proposed Staples-Essendant merger. Staples is a very fine business that I rely on frequently. Merging two similar businesses will reduce competition and, most likely, mean the loss of a convenient store (Staples) in my neighborhood. This country is ill served by the loss of competitiveness in business. Thank you.
