In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Not long ago a proposed merger between Office Depot and Staples was blocked, and for good reason. The consolidation of retail power is not good for consumers no matter the rational to try to explain it. Freedom, the ability to chose what to do (and where to shop) is part of the bedrock of democracy. Don't allow our Freedom to be diminished. Block any merger of Staples, whose sole purpose would be to benefit a few.
