Dell Signs Retail Deal With Staples
Dell said Monday that it will begin selling its lineup of computer products through business supply retailer Staples beginning November 11.
Initially, the store will offer the Inspiron 1721 and 1521 notebooks and Inspiron 530 desktops through its retail locations and website, with the product line to be expanded later. The deal is Dell's second with a retailer after signing a similar one with Wal-Mart in May of this year.
About 1,400 of Staples' 1,927 stores worldwide will carry the Dell lineup, increasing Dell's retail presence worldwide to 10,000 locations. Internationally, the number two PC maker has deals with Bic Camera in Japan, Carphone Warehouse in the UK, and Gome in China.
