Staples, Inc. Message Board

    Just curious

    Generally, I wouldn't be interested in a company like Staples. However, out of curiosty, I took a look at their SEC annual reports, and I'm curious about something.

    I know Staples has about 2,000 or so stores, and that the retail industry can have thin margins. However, why would a company such as this have high costs of revenue and high operating costs?

    I probably answered my own question earlier, by mentioning the 2,000 stores. It takes a lot of cash to run all of those stores and to pay the employees.

    What I be somewhere in the ball park of being right?
