Please stop this Staples merger. It represents an unacceptable threat to competition in the industry and will result, as have other private equity funded mergers, in many thousands of jobs being lost. We live in a rural area and are very dependent on our local Staples store. Please ensure that the store continues to serve us and provide jobs for local people. Thank you.
