Shopping at Officeworks is a great experience for those who love stationery, technology and even home or office decorating.
Each time I visit, there is something new to explore - new ranges of stationery, the latest in computers, cameras and gadgets and also furniture and storage pieces, art and craft items, school supplies, safety signs, software, business books and more.
Of course, there is also their Print & Copy centre, where you can print documents and photos yourself or get the staff to help you.
But they don't stop at just printing documents. You can create digital photo books, get your favourite pictures printed on canvas or as large posters, all in exceptional high definition colour or even black and white.
You can also get your documents bound or laminated and banners and frames created to help promote your business.
Whether you are a student or a small business owner, Officeworks is going to be a great resource for many years to come.
On a recent visit, I noticed they have introduced a Game Zone, a place where kids can play while their parents shop or attend to their business needs.
And there is even more ... Officeworks also runs colouring competitions for children and has Community Noticeboards, where you can pin your flyers or business cards to advertise your business.
You will also find free classes which are usually run on the weekends starting from 11am and cover topics such as:
- How to set up your wireless network
- How to organise your paperwork
- How to create your own inspiration board
- How to update your resume to stand out from the crowd.
And if you can't make it to the store for one of their classes, you can watch them the following Monday on Youtube.
Don't have an Officeworks store near where you live or work? Then visit their comprehensive website, where you can purchase office supplies, school & art items, paper, technology, ink & toners, furniture and supplies for your office kitchen.
'Officeworks' turns me into 'a kid in a lolly shop'!
I've loved Stationery of all types since I was a child. My parents', & three Aunts used to supply me with, each Xmas & B'Day..........
Colouring-in Books, & Pencils.
New Pencil Case, with Eraser, Pencils when little.
Then. Ditto, but Fountain Pen added, when a 'tweenager'.
Then, Ditto, with good quality Propelling Pencil, & Biro's(they'd just 'come into being'), when teenager.
I still L O V E looking at the Current Stationery, & get surprised & delighted by what's available, cf'd what I got as a child!
I remember my first Stapler, in 1959; it was a normal stapler, well made, with green painted top, & its' brand was 'Frog'! Lol!
It lasted about 40 years, until totally rusted!
