Port Richey Staples Closing

The store at 6239 Tacoma Drive shuts it doors May 4.

Folks who like to shop at the Staples in Port Richey will have to find another place to go to get their office supply needs filled.

The 6239 Tacoma Drive store is closing for good May 4. The Staples spokeswoman didn’t return call for comment, but employees at the store confirmed it will not reopen after that date.

When the Port Richey store closes, it’ll take longer to get to a Staples from New Port Richey. The nearest open stores are at 413334 U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs and 30190 U.S. 19 in Clearwater.

As an alternative, there's always the Office Depot at 9474 U.S. 19 in Port Richey.

Will you miss Staples? Is there something you'd like to see take over the spot? Share your thoughts by commenting below.

I'll miss the store, I shop there often. I didn't like their early closing hours, but did appreciate the store being in the area. Praying for all the employees who will be losing their jobs. :(

I stopped by Sunday and picked up a floor sample chair and a demo multi-function printer/scanner/fax at great prices.

Unfortunately - Not surprised when you look at that mall - like a ghost town compared to the other shops.

Bob Evans in Holiday closed last Sunday, and now Staples in Port Richey will close May 4th. That's two different corporate chains who have closed locations in West Pasco. What does that say for the local economy??? -John teletechexposed.com

A poor community that has no spending money, cannot buy extraneous items. Remember, we are the 99%, who have barely nothing.

Office Depot is right across the street. I don't think you need 2 office supply chains across the street from each other.

New to the area, I noticed that too.

I liked the Staples cartridge trade-in program better than OD's, but the program recently changed, too.

What a joke

With websites like quill operating, stores like staples and office max are on the chopping block.

Sounds a lot like, "let's get to work." NOT!

The issue here is that you can buy a lot of the same things online much cheaper and delivered right to your door. Last year I wanted a new kitchen sink and faucet, mine could have been used by Wilma Flintstone they were that old. I checked at Lowes, Home Depot, Woody Tucker, all locally and the prices they wanted were ridiculous. I started checking online and ended up getting a faucet and sink for $209.00 delivered (within 3 days - free delivery) and the faucet alone at Home Depot was $129.00. I saved over $200.00. Online stores are competing big time with these brick and mortar stores. I even get my printer ink, vitamins, quite a few things online now.
