Consumers looking for Apple products or accessories can now find them at Staples, at least online.

The retailer is now officially stocking a variety of Apple items at its Web-based store. Staples is offering accessories for the iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac, including keyboards, mice, cases, covers, and cables. Larger and pricier items such as Time Capsules and Apple TVs are also available.

The products will start to pop up in Staples' retail stores as well. A salesperson at one Staples store told me that about half of the physical outlets will soon begin to stock various Apple items.

Staples executives had already tweeted the news almost two weeks ago but couldn't say when the products might appear on their online or offline shelves.

Apple has gradually been expanding its retail reach beyond its own branded stores. Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and RadioShack all carry Apple products and accessories. Almost all of those stores carry the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, but so far Staples is offering mostly accessories and just certain hardware.

CNET contacted Staples for more information and will update the story when the company responds.
