I use Staples regularly and buy many things there, including printer cartridges which are quite expensive. If Staples merges with other such office (and home) supplies stores, consumers will at the mercy of monopolistic prices. Small businesses have all but disappeared in my neighborhood and this merger will only enhance BIG stores and aid in the elimination of small start-ups. Please consider the consumers!!
