Staples is a progressive community growing in both industry and population. Nearly 3,000 people live in Staples, while the population grows to 12,000 within a 15-mile radius of the city.
Located at the junction of U.S. Highway 10 and Minnesota Highway 210, an intersection that more than 15,000 vehicles pass through every day, Staples is a hub for business development, locally, nationally, and internationally.
The diverse business community includes small businesses to large international corporations — everything from a college to a rubber molding company to a boat manufacturing plant, even a vineyard.
