The big box office supplies and copy business Staples is planning a major remodel of it's Coeur d' Alene location. The Coeur d' Alene Staples is located off of Ironwood Dr near Government Way in the Ironwood Square Shopping Center.
The store will remain open during the construction and will come out with a new look and noticeably smaller size. The chain vacate about 1/3 of the space they currently occupy leaving new Staples at about 15,500 square feet, down from the 24,000 square feet they occupy currently . In all Staples plans to invest about 600,000 into this project.
The move is because of a plan by the Glendale,Az. based chain to make all of their older stores to look like their newer ones. The smaller store format is also a reaction to the increase in people shopping online over the brick and mortar stores.
