Sears in Toms River. KMart in Manahawkin and Brick. Toys R Us everywhere. Restaurants all over Ocean and Monmouth County. The closings keep piling up, and it's hard to think that the trend will slow any time soon.

The latest casualty is Staples in Forked River.

In a statement, Staples announced the Forked River location will be closing on June 8.

We continually evaluate our store performance to ensure we’re operating the business in the best way. As customers shift online, we are taking aggressive action to right-size our retail footprint. We are committed to providing great service and every product businesses need whether it’s in-store, online or through mobile.

Staples did not reveal whether more locations would close in the future, but did say that the Toms River and Manahawkin locations were still open.

It seems like a weekly question we ask: what should take it's place? What restaurant or business would you like to see in Forked River?
