Right along Tapteal sits the old Staples building, abandoned for several years.

The buildings around it have rebounded with Macy's and Ashley's Furniture but Staples has been sitting for awhile, since closing in 2016.

The good news, the building is finally getting a new lease on life!

Standard Paint and Flooring has purchased the property at 1480 Tapteal Drive and will relocate their business into the building.

The new 24,000 foot space will replace their current location and store on Kellogg St.

The new location will include an expanded showroom as well as a design center. The new store and location will open later this year.
