In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The merger of Staples with Essendant is clearly anti-competitive and will harm independent office products businesses. These independent businesses already face limited suppliers to buy from. If the mission of the FTC is to prevent anti-competitive business practices, this merger cannot be allowed to go through.
