WAREHAM, MA-It looks like this town will have its share of big box stores shortly. Both Staples and Home Depot are close to the final permitting stages that will enable them to develop stores near each other on Route 6.

Chuck Gricus, Wareham’s town planner tells GlobeSt.com that Staples is awaiting an approval from the town’s planning board for a site plan review for a 20,300-sf store. He notes that town officials are very supportive of the store coming to town. “It conforms to the zoning code and it adds to the tax base,” he says, pointing out that the tax base here is 80% residential.

Just west of the proposed Staples could be a 118,000-sf Home Depot. Gricus says that the store has received its permits from the town and now lacks only permits from Massachusetts Highway Authority. Staples will need permits from MassHighway as well because of the store’s location.
