Staples has partnered with Workbar to offer shared work spaces — also known as co-working spaces — within select Staples retail locations. The first three Workbar co-working spaces will open in Staples stores in Danvers, Norwood and Brighton, MA in late spring of this year.
Each of the 2,500-square-foot – 3,500 square-foot custom-designed facilities will provide high-end workspaces, conference rooms, private phone rooms, fast and secure Wi-Fi, printers and coffee and tea. The Workbar locations within Staples will be operated by Workbar and will offer memberships, pre-scheduled meeting space, and access to its in-person and online community.
“Mobile professionals are a rising demographic everywhere, not just downtown, so we’re building a hub-and-spoke network that links urban centers and suburban locations. With its convenient locations, parking, and extended store hours, Staples is an ideal partner,” said Workbar CEO and co-founder Bill Jacobson.
