A spokeswoman for Staples said: “In September, Staples announced a strategic plan to accelerate growth and better serve the evolving needs of customers. As part of this plan, we are reshaping our business in the UK to serve customers who increasingly shop with us online. We are actively working to support associates through this period of change.”

We spoke to a member of staff today who told us they have been told to expect the store to close by the end of January and there are discounts on stock between 10%-50% off items.
