TORONTO, October 31, 2018 – Today, Webware.io announced a partnership with Staples Canada that promises to disrupt the Canadian website market and make it easier than ever for small businesses and entrepreneurs to leverage the digital world to build their business. As part of the partnership, Webware will have staff onsite in Staples stores to educate and counsel business owners how they can enter the digital space and market to a broader audience.

Starting today, Webware staff will be onsite in four Staples stores in the GTA, including University Avenue, Front Street, Yonge and King Street, and Midtown Toronto. Over the next 18 months, Webware’s in-store presence will roll out in many Staples locations across Canada.
