In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Consolidation of companies is making shopping more and more difficult. If it continues, we will have about 3 corporations running everything, and I guess that we will have to order everything from Amazon. My choice of products in stores is getting smaller as is my choice of places to physically shop. I'm sure that if this merger happens, we will have fewer stores and the distance to my closest store will be further. Investors are NOT interested in customers or employees, only in how they can maximize their profits. Please protect us a consumers.
