FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Staples today announced the launch of Staples Studio™, a fresh take on coworking for small businesses, entrepreneurs and commuters, now open in three Massachusetts Staples retail locations: Brighton, Danvers and Norwood. Staples Studio was established to foster an environment where businesses can focus on creating, collaborating and connecting in shared workspaces and private or shared offices. Great perks like unlimited coffee, tea and meeting room use give members the tools they need to feel accomplished. Staples Studio is conveniently located inside Staples retail stores to give members access to everything they may need to succeed, all in one convenient location.

We have thoughtfully designed Staples Studio to be an ecosystem of resources for businesses in a connected environment that will allow our coworking members to focus on what they do best.”
