On Tuesday, July 26, Lake Stevens officially welcomed the brand new 14,000 square foot Staples in Frontier Village.
Mayor Vern Little along with other city staff and members of The Greater Lake Stevens Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors were on hand to celebrate with the employees and the community.

As part of the grand opening celebration Staples donated $1,500 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County, presenting a check to Lake Stevens’ Director Dan Curley.

The donation from Staples Foundation will support youth programs provided by Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County that help young people realize their full potential in a safe environment during non-school hours.

Additionally, the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County has been selected as the recipient of school supplies collected through “Staples for Students” a back-to-school supply drive made possible by Staples and Do Something.org. 
Now through Sept. 17, local teens are encouraged to participate in the campaign by collecting new school supplies and dropping them off at their local Staples store.

“Staples is committed to building a better community in Lake Stevens by supporting organizations that help local youth succeed,” said Greg Cranford, general manager of Staples. “Through this contribution and our involvement with DoSomething.org, we are helping the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County enrich and expand educational opportunities for students in the area.”

The new store brings with it an additional opportunity to “Shop Local” and employs approximately 20 full and part time associates.

The new Lake Stevens Staples store’s regular hours will be Mon. – Fri., 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., Sat., 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sun., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m and is located at 621 SR 9 NE.
