Staples Business Depot

The Staples Business Depot is an office supply superstore in The Hat located next to Sobeys. The business is branded with the slogan “that was easy.” and that in itself sums it up.

Staples, also known as “The Business Depot”, has anything a business could want, including computers, printers, desks, chairs, and any other office supplies you can think of. Also included is some other more youth-friendly items, such as video games and colouring books for children to be occupied with while their parents shop around.

Staples - that was easy.

A Copy Center is incorporated into the store as well, which accommodates an array of print jobs along with laminating, folding, and a kiosk for anyone to work from. More recently, you can now upload your own files from home to Staples to be printed via the Staples Copy and Print website.

More than just a business store, Staples has school-related functions, including their “Back To School” sale, in which a large selection of school supplies are brought in and usually marked down in price. If you are shopping for your kids, you will no doubt think “That was easy.” when you are finished.

Recycling of printer cartridges and toners is offered in the store as well, simply bring them in and head to the printer cartridge section to find the recycling bin.

    So I went there looking for a monthly organizer and I noticed a few that were $60+, I found the options were incredibly limiting and very expensive.

    In the end I kind of/sort of found what I was looking for, but mostly left with the thought “I should go into business making monthly agendas with a calendar and note sheets” and I’d probably make a lot of money because I went through every single one and end up finding one for 12 dollars, all recycled (that’s a plus) but only has like 3 pages for notes … so I guess I just slightly more than half found what I was looking for.

    I guess I was really irritated because it seemed like such a simple thing, calendar & note sheets.

    That’s pretty much organizers everywhere though, unless you go digital, in which case it’s FREE. The best part about Staples is when they have their super sales on special printing paper (heavy stock/gloss) when they go for like 50% of their normal selling price, it’s nice to snag a couple packs for future use. I also love their selection of presentation binders/portfolios.
