In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Capitalism is the free operation of companies formed and grown by free-thinking entrepreneurs. When companies sell shares, others share in the profits and the satisfaction of being part of a winning company. But when the companies are taken over, scooped from the public sector by bigger businesses, initiative is lost, and the company may be shut down to prevent competition with the new owners' own enterprises. Staples provides an essential service to the public, by showcasing quality office supplies and allowing private citizens and small businesses to stock their own enterprises for daily functions. Don't let another megacorporation remove peoples' chance to stock up at Staples.
