Staples in Villanova Closing

The store will close Jan. 4, 2013.


Staples, the office supply store at 789 E. Lancaster Ave. in Villanova, will close on Friday, January 4. (The closing date was moved to the 4th from the 5th, which is published in the photo for this story.)

According to a Staples associate, they have several tables of items that are on clearance. Display models for laptop computers, monitors, printers and tablets are 30 percent off.

What do you think would be a good business to replace Staples at this location? Tell us by commenting below.

Actually, I've heard rumor that Villanova PO 'to go'. Staples in V was a GREAT location but/and John is correct, not enough traffic to sustain it. Like the Rosemont store area [Borders + drugstore], inside stores, where one cannot see them from the road, is a disaster. To date, how many restaurants have been in that complex? PLEASE, no more banks, coffee shops. I can remember when Caruso had the BOC over a barrel with his grand plans for that site. Seems pretty much like a bust!!!

they'll build something else we don't need.

I am predicting a megaplex including at least 3 banks, a frozen yogurt place, and maybe a cell phone store or two.
