On Saturday, November 21, Staples Canada opened its latest Working and Learning Store location, and the first of its kind in Calgary.
The store, located at 250 East Hills Square, features a new modern design and customer experience catered towards a diverse customer base, including local entrepreneurs, parents, students, teachers, and workers.
Opening ahead of the busy holiday season, the new location offers personalized gifts at Solutionshop as well as products from a variety of technology brands. Staples also offers gear for those working or going to school from home. As with all Staples stores, the new Calgary store follows all full health and safety protocols as part of Staples Canada’s ShopSafe program, which includes extensive cleaning protocols, personal protective equipment requirements for associates and customers, and sanitation stations. To further enable physical distancing in-store, customers can queue in a digital line through the ShopSafe App to reduce time physically standing in line in-store.
“We are aware of the efforts Canadians are making to protect themselves and their loved ones throughout the pandemic,” says David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada. “Our ShopSafe program and e-commerce offerings provide a safe shopping experience, allowing customers to shop completely from home or safely in-store.
“More Canadians are working, learning and teaching from home,” he continues, “and we feel it’s our duty to help support our community of customers with the solutions they need to stay connected.”
Customers who wish to buy online and pick up in store can take advantage of Contactless Curbside Pickup at Staples Canada stores and free delivery on all orders at staples.ca. From December 4 to December 28, Staples Canada will bring its Contactless Curbside Pickup Container to 250 East Hills Square, giving Calgary customers an easy, contact-free way to shop for the holidays and pick up their gifts.
