With the beginning of August comes the end of summer and the start of back to school everything. Back to school clothes, supplies, sales of all types, and more. We’re not immune. Our topic this month is also back to school.
In the office supply and office furniture world, that means a bevy of savings for you! Take note of our specials this month. They are all featured below. There are some great deals on everything from colored pencils to chairs.

As a business owner, back to school also means back to business. After the leisurely days of summer and a month of August vacations, most businesses are ready to restart for the final quarter. That may mean new office furniture to replace some of the tired existing things you have or you may be adding staff to your growing organization.

Great River Office Products and our representatives are experts in office furniture and the ergonomics of making this furniture work for you and your employees. We talk about this point frequently, but what you may not know about buying office furniture from us is we carry the warranty on your purchases. This means if something should go wrong with a piece you’ve purchased, you come to us for help. Enlisting our help versus the manufacturer’s saves you money and time. Many times, warranty issues also mean you’re stuck sitting on hold or navigating your way through phone prompt after phone prompt trying to find the right person at the manufacturer who can help. When you buy from us, one of our representatives will work with you person-to-person to fix the issue. We make office furniture simple from purchase to maintenance and beyond. If you’re ready to explore new office furniture, give us a call today for your free consultation.
