Staples is becoming much more than a Canadian office supplies store.
The company is now opening coworking spaces.
According to the company, Staples Canada is now the “Working and Learning Company” and has launched its first new concept store in Kirkland, Quebec.
And in January, Staples will introduce a second new concept location in downtown Toronto that will offer a coworking space called Staples Studio. The company says that this transformation is focused on providing customers with a new experience that’s rooted in community.
“The way people work and live is changing in profound ways and Staples Canada is adapting to help our customers work, learn and grow,” said David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada, in a statement.
“We spoke to thousands of entrepreneurs, teachers, students, and parents to gain insights on what we could do to better suit their needs, and we’re delivering a solution unique to Canada.”
In Toronto, Staples Canada is introducing coworking space within its University Avenue store, providing entrepreneurs and businesses with all the space and resources they could ever need at their fingertips, including the newest Mos Mos café location.
“The environment we’ve created in our concept stores invites anyone coming in to spend time with us, find a place to relax and hang out, explore products, grab a coffee, share ideas and work together,” said Boone.
The new coworking space will be located at Staples’ 375 University Ave location.
