Staples has unveiled its new concept store and coworking space in Toronto.
According to the company, its new location, at 375 University Avenue, offers a completely new inspirational experience for customers, featuring over a thousand new products, a next-level solutions shop with marketing services for businesses, a dedicated space for community events and guest speakers called Spotlight, a Mos Mos Coffee location, and the first Staples Studio, an innovative 4,500 square foot Coworking space, located within the store.
“We’ve designed this new store with community in mind,” said David Boone, Chief Executive Officer, Staples Canada.
“With Staples Studio Coworking, a café, the Solution Shop and thousands of new products, this redesigned location is a working and learning hub. We want to bring people together who are focused on personal and professional growth, to be an inspiring, affordable place for entrepreneurs, businesses and students to work, meet and collaborate.”
Staples Studio, Coworking at University Avenue, will provide entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses and students access to a collaborative workspace, that includes lounge spaces, community kitchens, private and shared offices, and meeting rooms fully equipped with modern office furniture and state-of-the-art technology.
Staples Studio will also offer support from an on-site Community Manager and staff, and the use of Spotlight auditorium-style event space, says the company.
Access to the studio will be available on a membership basis, with several options, ranging from a drop-in day pass to monthly dedicated private offices.
Besides the workspace, the new store also features a new Mos Mos Coffee location, for coffee and snacks.
“Our view has always been simple – coffee may be common, but should never be ordinary,” said Tahir Rhemtulla, Co-owner, Mos Mos, in a release. “We’re excited to partner with Staples on our fourth location – we share the same entrepreneurial mindset.”
The Staples Studio grand opening is scheduled for January 10 at 8 am, and the store is offering visitors gift cards, free coffee, and discounts to celebrate the occasion.
