GREENWICH VILLAGE — Paramedics treated two people after they were overcome by a mysterious odor in a Staples store Wednesday, fire officials said.
Firefighters responded to reports of the smell in the store at 769 Broadway, at East 9th Street, just after 9:15 a.m.
The two people were treated on the scene for smoke inhalation, but were not transported to the hospital.
The cause of the smell was unknown.
Business was back to normal a short time later at Staples.
"The store did not close," manager Daniel Elliott said.
Calls to Staples' corporate offices were not immediately returned.
