    Staples likes Maitland — if taxpayers kick in $1 million
    FLORIDA January , 2006
    Word
    is that Staples, the office-products company, will add 340 jobs and
    lease 60,000 square feet in Maitland — if it can get some tax breaks
    to do the deal.
    Nothing official yet, but the buzz in
    economic-development circles is that the company is asking for more
    than $1 million in incentives to open a call center to support its
    online business sales.
    The average salary would be $40,000. That’s not huge. In fact, it’s just 16 percent above the Orange County average of $34,413.
    Staples apparently is weighing the Summit Place location against a site in Texas.
    Maitland
    officials intend to ask Orange County for assistance in funding the tax
    breaks. It made a similar deal with the county for the expansion of
    Electronic Arts.
    I’m told Staples wants to open its operation this
    spring. The building is in good shape. It formerly housed the call
    center operations of the Charles Schwab brokerage.
    No word on any of this from Staples
