In 1985, Staples' founder Tom Stemberg, a former supermarket chain executive turned entrepreneur, was working on a business proposal over the Fourth of July weekend when his typewriter ribbon broke. Because it was the holiday weekend, local suppliers and stationery stores were closed. After driving from store to store and not finding the correct ribbon, Tom came to a realization: The world needed a supermarket for office products.
Ten months later, Staples, the first office superstore, was open for business. And office supplies became more accessible, and affordable, to all who needed them.
Many things have changed over the past quarter century, from their expanded product selection to their growing number of stores and ways to shop to becoming a truly global company. But one thing has remained the same: Their customers are their priority, and they help them make more happen, no matter what it is they want to accomplish.
Through its world-class retail, online and delivery capabilities, Staples lets customers shop however and whenever they want, whether it's in store, online or on mobile devices. Staples offers more products than ever, in categories such as technology, facilities and breakroom, furniture, safety, and medical, as well as Copy & Print and Staples EasyTechsm services. Staples has been making it easy for businesses for over 27 years with thousands of associates worldwide.
