Winburn M. Staples built a store in Bridgton, Maine, around 1885 in partnership with Abel H. Harriman. Staples and Harriman sold their business to John Roes and Byron Harnden in 1892, although the store seems to have retained its original name. Winburn Staples was also founding president of Bridgton's second bank, sat on many boards and committees, and represented Bridgton in the Maine legislature as both a senator and a representative.
