    SPLS in TX?

    I am thinking of investing in SPLS, but I would
    like to visit a store. I visited the co website and
    was surprised to learn that there was not a single
    SPLS location in Texas. It occurred to me that maybe
    SPLS is regional but apparently there are locations in
    Oklahoma and New Mexico.

    This surprises me
    considering the size of the Texas market for business
    supplies. Anyone know why SPLS is not in this market?

    • in an indirect way. As of yet, there are not any
      stores in the state, but they do have a commercial and
      corporate distribution network (know as Staples C&C). I
      know this because our company buys all of its supplies
      from them, and we are located in Fort Worth. It is my
      understanding that they will eventually have stores here,
      sometime within the next two to three years.

      Buy
      more SPLS stock.

    • It could be that they just havent found the right
      location to purchase yet for a store there. I live in
      pennsylvania and we have probaly 5 stores in our state so far
      that i am aware of.
      Each one of them does a
      wonderful business and they seem to ave a great selection
      of anything your heart could desire for your
      office..I was on a visit to Oklahoma in novemeber and they
      had just opened a staples store in early october
      there in the city of Muskoogee.. just give them a
      little time to expand to Texas.. Sam Walton didnt have a
      walmart in every state in his first 10 years of business
      and look where he is today...
      this is a great
      company and its only gonna get better..
