Some items are already marked down, and “everything is going to be on sale,” says store manager Jonathan Wilson. All 10 employees will be transferred to other locations.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Staples Inc. was hit with huge losses after its filed bid to merge with Office Depot and is on track to close 50 stores in North America this year.
The Staples on Gallows Road and Route 50 in Merrifield closed last spring. Plans to put a Kids First Swim School in that spot apparently fell through as there is a lease sign on the building.
