Why Buying Office Products from People vs a Big Box Store Matters

Shopping for office supplies or office furniture isn't always to most exciting thing to do. Especially when you're looking for things like printer paper and cleaning products for the office bathroom.

It may seem like the simplest thing to do is send an assistant to a Big Box store to "grab a few things" and run right back. But have you ever calculated your true cost of these products when buying off-the-cuff this way? You have cost in mileage, cost in employee time, and cost in lost productivity while that employee is away from their desk and not doing what you hired them to do.

Additionally, have you ever purchased office furniture from one of these places and then needed to have it repaired or replaced? How long did it take to even find the right person to speak to about your problem; not to mention the time involved to get your product fixed or replaced?
The truth of the matter being time is money and there is no better time to realize your true cost of office products and office furniture than when you're buying off-the-cuff or when there is a true warranty issue with an item.

Both cases above cost your business extra money. Great River Office Products is first and foremost a service driven company that employs real people to help you create efficiency in your business. That means we have people to help find the items you need, an easy online ordering system with a Favorites list to reduce your time in ordering and we have people in place to help you if something should go wrong. 

A great example of this is our accounting department. Jim and Sandy are our go-to people in Accounting. If you have a question about your bill, it takes one call to our office where the phone is answered by a real person. You'll then directly reach the people who can answer your questions.
If you need to return something, you have two options to do so. Either call our office and a Customer Service person such as Dayna or Alanna will help you over the phone, or go online and fill out our simple return form. Our driver will pick up your return on their next visit and BOOM; your product is returned. Simple, efficient, and hassle-free.

Your time is money. Don't waste it. Let us do the running, searching, and legwork so you and your employees can make your business more profitable.
