DETROIT (WKZO) -- Workers at dozens of Staples Office Supply stores in Michigan are waiting to find out whether they'll still be employed after the company shuts down about twelve-percent of its North American stores. The company announced the impending closure of about 225 stores after reporting a drop in fourth quarter 2013 sales.

The news follows Tuesday's announcement that electronics retailer RadioShack, which also has a strong Michigan presence, would be closing about 20-percent of its stores in the U.S. totaling up to eleven-hundred closures.
