To address the evolving workplace, Staples is launching Staples Studio, an in-store concept that offers customers access to a collaborative workspace with private or shared offices, community kitchens and meeting rooms, and a range of additional membership benefits.
Staples already has rolled out the concept to three of its Massachusetts stores located in Brighton, Danvers and Norwood.
The company established Staples Studio to foster an environment where businesses can focus on creating, collaborating and connecting. Studio space rooms are modern, newly constructed and set up to support business requirements.
Customers who sign up for Staples Studio get access to the space in any store where it operates as well as podcasting studio use, TSA Pre application program enrollment by IdentoGO, 500 color printed business cards, fast and secure Wi-Fi, unlimited meeting room use, unlimited black and white printing, a stocked kitchen of free premium coffee, tea and snacks, and free parking. Customers who sign up for three-month Staples Studio memberships by July 31 receive an additional three months of membership for free. Plus, members get 10% off all in-store purchases for 12 months.
“Staples has evolved alongside our customer from a place intended for simply purchasing supplies to an environment designed to help small businesses flourish through community and solutions,” said Mike Motz, Staples U.S. retail CEO. “Many of our customers are small business owners, side-gig enthusiasts or have jobs that keep them mobile. We have thoughtfully designed Staples Studio to be an ecosystem of resources for businesses in a connected environment that will allow our co-working members to focus on what they do best.”
