FAIRFIELD - The new Staples store is scheduled to open in June, and the first order of business is getting employees.

Staples, the world's largest office supply company, is set to open on Oliver Road in early June, according to the City of Fairfield's Community Development Department. At more than 20,000 square feet, the store will be Staples' first in Fairfield and second in Solano County, following the Vacaville store.

And, as with any new store, the company is working to get folks on board to actually sell all those printers, paper products and pens. In preparation for opening, Staples will interview prospective job seekers today and Wednesday at the Workforce Investment Board office in Fairfield.

'At a time when the news is filled with stories of businesses closing down, Fairfield remains a bright spot for doing business in the Bay Area,' said Curt Johnston, the city's assistant director of economic development.
