In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
To the FTC Please stop allowing mergers that ultimately limit choice to consumers. By allowing large corporations to control by purchase, our free market is impacted. I have always understood there are antitrust laws, but lately they do not seem to be in force. The recent Staples/Essendant is a travesty. It should not have happened. No small business is safe in this environment when larger businesses can buy up essential means of production.
