RICHMOND HILL, ON, November 18, 2020 – Staples Canada will open its newest Working and Learning Store in Calgary on Saturday, November 21 located at 250 East Hills Square. The new store is the first of its kind in Alberta and features an all-new modern design sensibility with an industry-leading customer experience that’s tailored to meet the needs of its customers, including local entrepreneurs, parents, students, teachers and workers.

Opening ahead of the busy holiday season, the new location offers hundreds of thoughtful gift ideas for a unique season, personalized gifts at Solutionshop and the best technology brands, as well as work-from-anywhere solutions and essentials to support virtual working and learning. As with all Staples stores, the new Calgary store features a safe shopping environment with full health and safety protocols as part of Staples Canada’s ShopSafe™ program.

“More Canadians are working, learning and teaching from home, and we feel its our duty to help support our community of customers with the solutions they need to stay connected,” said David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada. “This new store in East Hills offers a vast product and service offering, and with many Canadians looking to get a head start on their holiday shopping, Staples Canada is a one-stop destination for thoughtful gifts.”

To further enable physical distancing in-store, customers can also queue in a digital line through the ShopSafe App to reduce time physically standing in line in-store.
