I think we have seen too many mergers that do little to nothing to help consumers with choices/ cost savings. We are heading to a one choice environment with the parent company making decisions for us instead of becoming an educated consumer. Having experienced Office Depot take over Office Max and losing some of the choices/ prices that were there; having seen 1 major grocery chain in St. Louis taken over by another with stores closed, employees laid off, and certain a difference in prices that I, the shopper, experience, I disagree with this merger. Thank you ! Norma Line
