In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
These kind of merger/shutdowns are unacceptable. Lowe's bought what was left of Orchard Supply Hardware and then closed them. Albertson's has bought Safeway and when I was in Oregon I was told that any town that had both stores, the Safeway was closed. This kind of 'doing business' does not support competition in the market place.
