Office Quarters began operations in 1977 as a local, family owned business located in upstate New York. As a local office supplier, goods were mostly provided to customer's within a hundred mile radius and included paper, pens, supplies, etc and even rubber stamps and typewriter repair. In the late 1990s, the Office Quarters web site (and brand name) were created to offer products to a whole new geography of customers outside the local area. Soon, Office Quarters was shipping product throughout all 50 states and around the world. Today, the same family still operates the company, over 35 years later.
We are not a traditional Office Supply distributor. Most office suppliers focus on aggressive pricing for commodity type items like copy paper. At Office Quarters, we only provide these items for convenience. Our main focus is what we would call C and D items. These are items that every company and organization utilizes, but often do not pay attention to when it comes to price. Some examples of these items would be a folder a company uses for presentations, a certain pen that is preferred, or names badges for employees. While the cost of these items may seem insignificant individually, as a group, they often make up a large portion of a company's supply budget. At Office Quarters, we price these items much more agressively than your typical box store, providing unmatched savings on sometimes higher ticket items.
Because we have our roots as a small, family owned business - we still believe strongly in the importance of customer care. We actually answer our phones - and when we are busy helping other customers, please leave us a message and we will be sure to make an effort to get back to you. At Office Quarters, our desire is to add a personal touch to the impersonal world of e-commerce. That is what we are here for.
