Last year the lineup was about 10-15 ppl, maybe, at the store I was at? There were some marginally decent deals then, though, unlike this year...

yah.... SOME good deals last yr... but this yr is nothin.....

maybe they had to make up for their YEAR-ROUND losses due to PMs..... :lol:

btw, last yr... yes my local staples had ~20-25 ppl linin up... betcha anything it was prbly the "regular customers" that have no clue about PM policy , or they knew about it but never actually had "good working knowledge" of it..... lol....

think 1 day when *EVERYONE* knows and uses the PM policy against staples (which is not too likely), staples will eventually have to "shutdown" :lol: and close all their branch stores.... :twisted:

MJM ;)

Nah... Staples would just pull out of electronics/computers stuff, which is the only area where one gets great PMs. On office supplies, they're rarely in a position where they can be PMed against, especially out here where there's no Office Depot or other such competitor.

Yes, one day when everyone is bright, well informed and rational. And *EVERYONE* will understand the platforms of the politicians they're voting for, and they'll stage protests when corporations act against the public interest, and people will stop poluting the earth, and I won't have to look at bloody VCRs blinking 12:00, and, and. . .

Yes, verily, Staples must fear the coming enlightenment. I, however, am looking forward to it.

Well, Staples is actually a good place to buy things. The sales staff are less blood thirsty than some other places and leaving the Price Match nonsense out of it, you can at least rest assured that returns are easy and obtaining a 100% PM isn't that hard. I can buy something at Staples and be moderately sure I won't have paid MORE than elsewhere.
