Staples, Inc. set the ball rolling for agencies to form that could provide a one stop shop dedicated solely to the purchase and distribution of office supplies. It grew to becoming a superstore industry and it has been a long and profitable learning business operations since the time Staples opened their first store in Brighton, Massachusetts on May 1, 1986 and there has been no looking back for this company ever since. Staples operate three business segments: North American Retail, North American Delivery and International Operations.
Its Home Office is located west of Boston in Framingham Massachusetts where the idea of being a solutions provider for offices and businesses took shape and since then Staples has centered on caring for its customers and their collective or unique needs as well as concentrating on creating and maintaining an employee friendly work place. The company recognizes that all of us as human beings affect the environment and in turn, we rely on it too. For this very reason, it has committed to protecting its natural resources by focusing on environmental safety and stewardship: this being the sole reason for its growth and success.
As it stands today, Staples is the world's leading seller of office products exceeding a humongous $16.1 billion record in sales in 2005 and its strong team of 69,000 associates make it easy for businesses of all sizes to buy the supplies, business machines, technology and services they need to run their business efficiently, effectively and successfully.
