Staples store in Ontario will add ServiceOntario outlets

Staples Canada has secured a contract from the Ontario provincial government to provide ServiceOntario centres within some of its stores. The move is not without precedent: IDA Drugs, Canadian Tire, and Home Hardware stores have had ServiceOntario locations for several years. providing access to drivers’ licences, hunting permits, and health cards. ServiceOntario is in the process of opening new centres in select Staples Canada stores, with additional locations expected to open throughout the year. Several stand-alone locations will be closed as a result. The government says the new arrangement will allow locations to be open longer hours and provide more parking for users.
