Steelcase makes deal with Staples

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Steelcase Incorporated says it's reached a deal with Staples to sell its high-performance chair and other furnishings online and in some select stores.

M-Live reports products will include a variety of seating and desk options to be sold starting this summer.

The partnership comes just months after the nation's largest supply store retailer announced it would be closing 225 stores in North America by the end of the year.

Staples is looking to trim about $500-million in costs by next year.
