Canadians can grab Back-to-School Essentials for Under a Dollar, all Summer

Staples Canada gives Canadians the widest Back-To-School assortment at unbeatable prices

RICHMOND HILL, ON, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - A recent Staples® Canada and Angus Reid Public Opinion survey found that over half of Canadians will travel to their nearest STAPLES location to pick up all 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 and we intend on making sure they'll find the greatest selection and the 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.

"Offering great products and great prices is part of who we are as a business," continued Matyas. "We are pleased to offer many of your key back-to-school items for under a dollar."

Beginning August 4, 2010, Staples Canada will offer the following products for under a dollar and you can check in future weekly flyers and in-store for more items under a dollar throughout the Back-to-school season.
