Little Neck’s Staples will close its doors for business at a yet-to-be-disclosed time in the near future, a spokeswoman for the chain store said.
The northeast Queens store, located at 252-17 Northern Blvd., will close, but it was unclear when the store would be shuttered and what would replace it.
“I can confirm that the Staples in Little Neck is closing,” said Kaitlyn Reardon, a spokeswoman for the office supply chain. “We always evaluate our store performance to ensure we’re operating the business in the best way.”
She said the company was making efforts to transfer employees of the store to nearby locations.
Other nearby Staples include a chain store in Bayside, located at 209-34 Northern Blvd., as well as others in Manhasset and College Point.
“When any store closes, it’s not a good thing because people lose their jobs,” Community Board 11 Chairman Jerry Iannece said of the store’s closing. “And it destabilizes the community until we know what’s going to be in its place”
