Amazon’s voice-controlled Echo speaker is now available at Staples
If you find yourself re-ordering office supplies, you can also nab Amazon’s smart speaker in one fell swoop. Staples is the only place other than Amazon where you can purchase the voice-controlled Echo device. While Echo is listed on the Staples website, it’s unclear whether or not the speaker will be available in stores (the two stores closest to me don’t have them). The retailer known for paper and pens may seem like an odd choice as the only “exclusive” spot to nab the Alexa-powered gadget, but Staples also sells Kindles, Fire TV and Fire tablets, so it’s not too much of a stretch. If you’re looking to grab one, it carries the same $180 price tag and is available now via the Staples website.
