Why have Staples Stores changed to Office Outlet?
In November 2016, Staples stores were purchased by Hilco Capital and are now under new ownership. Office Outlet is now operating as a separate business to Staples UK Limited, which includes Staples Online website and telephone order line, and Staples Advantage.
Any transactions made in Staples/Office Outlet stores from February 2017 are covered by the T&Cs of SUK Retail Limited (trading as Office Outlet).
What happens if I have purchased a Staples product or software that is faulty?
If you have purchased your product on the Staples website or telephone order line, then you will need to contact Staples on 0333 300 1334.
If you purchased your product in a store, the Office Outlet Customer Returns Terms and Conditions will apply. This also applies if your product is Staples branded and purchased in a retail store. Please click here for the Office Outlet Terms and Conditions.
I have lost my receipt, am I still able to return or exchange my product?

Staples Business Accounts / Staples Business Discount Programme
As SUK Retail Limited (trading as Office Outlet) is now a separate business to Staples UK Limited, the Staples Business Account charge card and Business Discount Programme scheme needed to come to an end for legal reasons.
The Staples Business Discount Programme ended in store on 28th January 2017. If you have regular copying and printing requirements, whether as an individual, business or club, please speak to our friendly Print Centre team. Depending on your volume and requirements, we may be able to offer you an upfront discount on your print order.
Do you offer a store credit scheme?
We have reviewed our finance offer for businesses, schools and charities and are delighted to announce that we will be introducing a store charge card in the next few months.

firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Customer Services Team on 0333 300 0078, 9am – 5:30pm, Monday to Friday
What has happened to the Staples Rewards scheme?
As SUK Retail Limited (trading as Office Outlet) is now a separate business to Staples UK Limited, the Staples Rewards loyalty scheme needed to come to an end for legal reasons.
Therefore, from December 31st 2016, the Staples Rewards scheme ended. All customers qualifying for Rewards vouchers in the final earning quarter (1st October-31st December 2016) received their vouchers in January 2017. These vouchers expired on 28th February 2017.
As the Office Outlet and Staples Online business systems are now completely separated, we are no longer able to take queries regarding former Staples Rewards accounts.
