Canada: Staples Canada celebrates 25 years in business
On October 15, 1991, the company then known as The Business Depot, opened the doors to its first retail location in Concord, Ontario. Fast-forward to today, Staples Canada makes it easy to make more happen with more products and more ways to shop.
“When we first opened it was clear that the way people worked was changing, and as the needs of our customers evolved, so did our business,” said Mary Sagat, president of Staples Canada. “Both our business and the retail landscape have evolved over the years but our vision has remained the same: to focus on helping businesses succeed, to be their partner and to help them grow. By offering more products, services and more ways to shop we’re committed to helping businesses make more happen every day. Like our values, that’s a goal that will never change.”
