Wow, that wasn't even subtle discrimination against 2A companies, that was just horrible. Boycott indeed, but I doubt it will do much.

This boycott stuff is out of control...

We'd have to almost not shop at all because nearly every single brand, chain and .com has had anti-gun tendencies in the past or the present.

I didn't shop at Staples anyway. So this won't be a hard boycott.

So be it. Expend a little time and effort to determine a company's political stance before spending your money. It is the only thing they will understand.

While it is your right to exclude whomever you wish, it is also my right to cease ever doing business with your firm again.

And as I am a man of my word, my email just sent to our account manager, with the blessing of our CEO:

Andria,

As you know ***** ****** has been a loyal customer of Staples for the last 3 1/2 years. During this time frame we have purchased $103,000.00 worth of supplies, furniture, tablets and computers. We expect our business to triple of the next 3 years as we have discussed previously.

It has recently come to our attention that Staples polices are anti-2nd amendment, and anti-liberty, the very things which allow Staples to remain in business. These go against the fundamental principles of the United States, and that of our organization.

The reason for this is this news article, plus other events:
http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes...r-contest.html

We can no longer continue to do business with an organization that undermines the integrity of this Country to the extent at which Staples has, along with our other outstanding issues with your accounts teams.

As such we will be closing our business account, cancelling our outstanding orders ($7,200 worth), and moving our accounts to one of your competitors who are less inclined to lump a legitimate business, a constitutional amendment, and a large portion of the US in the same category as drug dealers. This is both a business decision and a personal decision from ***** management.

Please get the payoff balance, the closing documents for the business account, and the order cancellations in ASAP as will not pay any outstanding invoices that have yet to be delivered as of May 30th, 2013.

Thank you,

Michael ******
Technical Operations Manager

I will say this was not the ONLY reason for the move, but the straw that broke the camels back.

I printed the story and will be bringing it in to my local Staples and citing the reason I can longer shop there by giving them the printed story.

Thank you for the email address. I shop at Staples frequently. I have asked that they confirm or deny that they discriminate against legal firearms businesses. I also told them that if they do, I will not shop with a store that is bigoted against me and my fellow gun owners.

One email won't get them to react, they need to receive a lot from around the country.

Unnecessary, just go to their facebook page and click the official rules for their promotion. Here's the link:

I'm all for personal boycotts but if your really want to get Staples attention then write your local legislator and insist that they boycott.

This probably won't go over in some parts or California but if we could get entire state entities or cities to drop Staples, that would send a very strong message.

Subject: ***** Account Closure Notice

Michael,

I apologize as I was a bit surprised by this email given our past correspondence and the issues that we rectified. I do understand that corporate policies are just that and are things that we have to abide by. I did show this email to my manager and we have come up with what we hope is a compromise that would allow ***** to be retained as a Staples customer

We want to extend a 0% interest rate on your account for the next 12 months to retain your business.

We have had a long outstanding relationship with your organization and wish it to continue further. Please let me know if this is acceptable.

Sincerely,

Andria ******
Executive Account Manager

Andria,

Thank you for getting back to us promptly. While the offer is generous, at this time we are not interested in retaining our account. Please get all documentation together, along with the order cancellations and I will have them signed, scanned and emailed back to you by EOB today.
Thank you,

Michael ******
Technical Operations Manager

I just emailed my account executive as well. Told them I will be moving my business to a more constitutionally supportive vendor. We spend about 20k a year with these bastards. Lets see..

Kudos Fiveohmike! I don't spend enough to get their attention, but I wrote a similar letter and hope they realize our money is as good as anyone's.

this was one of the companies backed by Mitt Romney during his VC days...

they must have lost their mind with this policy:

"Entry contains content that promotes alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms/weapons (or the use of any of the foregoing); promotes any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous; promotes any particular political agenda or message; is obscene or offensive; or endorses any form of hate or hate group.”

but being HQ in MA, it shouldn't be a suprise.

Bye, bye, Staples!
