As part of its continued evolution to Staples Connect, the working and learning store, Staples US Retail has announced the opening of two of its latest Staples Connect locations in Los Angeles, California and Auburn, Maine. The designs for these unique stores were developed with evolving customer needs in mind, providing enhanced offerings that empower productive work to happen from anywhere. In these new store locations, an expanded assortment of tools for remote work are showcased in fully realized environments, including office set ups for remote work tools and airplane seats to test products for working on the go, like laptop trays and travel luggage. Essential services for small businesses in store – printing, shipping and technology support – have been elevated to provide first-class service in this new way of working and learning.
