Despite being on this site for many years Staples has now officially opened. Many would describe this as a post refurbishment re-opening but since it never actually closed it’s probably just a re-launch. The main focus seems to be on the new external signage and internal product racking.
Anyway, a good effort was put in, not least of all by a balloon encrusted entrance for the day. Also a very tall balloon artist (he may have been on concealed stilts; I think he was). He was spending a fair amount of time turning balloons into some very nice dogs. Had he been able to turn some dogs into a balloon that would have been impressive too. There was also a PA system with external speakers and the advertising lorry pictured below.
