review comparison of staples - office depot in key areas, including which provides better office furniture, better office supplies, and the best value on office products

 

Staples and Office Depot are two of the most dominant shopping chains for office supplies in the US. The two stores are similarly templated, offering many of the same products and policies to consumers shopping for office goods. The product selections do differ occasionally, with Staples generally stocking more variety in printer goods, while Office Depot lists more in the way of furniture and notebook options.

In terms of pricing, Office Depot is more affordable on the whole, though the gap is minimal (about 2% or so across the board). Interestingly, Office Depot gets the edge for delivery, though Staples has a more friendly return policy.

In all, Office Depot gives a slightly better value and product selection up front, but the added cost and time spent at Staples will benefit you if -- or when – you have to bring products back. Since I don’t typically return notebooks, pens, or office supplies, I’ll take the better deal from Office Depot, and expect it to arrive later the same day.

    office depot now produces their own paper, tape, supplies, etc under their brand name, which is cheapest out of all. Other items are cheaper on staplers when on sale
