In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Now that the neighborhood stationery store has been made extinct, Staples offers the only viable alternative to the brick and mortar consumer. By facilitating this proposed merger, you are not only assuring the demise of an important retail outlet, it's labor force, and it's community benefit, you are attacking the consumer model on which this nation is premised. Do not destroy America for the benefit of the 1%.
