Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS) today announced the latest step to help business customers Make More Happen with the addition of eight new categories to its retail stores.

“At Staples, we’re committed to providing every product businesses need to succeed, and our expanded assortment gives customers more of what they want, whether it’s in-store, online or via mobile,” said Mike Edwards, executive vice president, merchandising - Staples. “The new categories we’re adding to our stores further build on our expanded Staples.com assortment to help our customers Make More Happen.”
