their Back-to-School supplies.
"Parents, teachers and students are always looking for good value when
shopping for their back-to-school needs. This year, over half of
Canadians are planning to shop at STAPLES for back-to-school supplies

best value," said Steve Matyas, President of STAPLES Canada.
Each year, STAPLES Canada reduces prices on loads of back-to-school
essentials to see that school-aged children are able to acquire the
back-to-school essentials they need at reasonable prices.

business," continued Matyas. "We are pleased to offer many of your key
back-to-school items for under a dollar."
