In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Stop the Staples merger with Essendant.Staples has already been closing stores and cutting jobs. If this merger goes through, matters will get much worse. In many cases private equity funds also try to eliminate the competition. In this case, a private equity fund that owns Staples wants to merge it with another office supply company. The result will be to kill off competition and eventually, kill off another successful retailer.
