Currently Staples has more than 79,000 associates worldwide including both full and part time associates. Aside from this number, Staples does not break out staffing figures by region or business unit.
Staples has decided to discontinue its pilot program with the U.S. Postal Service. We will transition the 82 pilot stores to the Postal Service’s Approved Shipper Program, a long-established program currently available at thousands of retail outlets across the country. Staples will continue to explore and test products and services that meet our customers’ needs.
