As an Entrepreneur and a person that has a home business I know how important it is to have the right products and the best products at a reach. I try to be consistent in where I buy my products, but hey, when a new site comes along and it really grabs my attention I usually will switch over to the new-found site. High prices don't always mean high quality, and this is the type of thing you take notice at with these stores that aren't classified as discount, but by looking at their prices you would think they were at a discount. The top five things I could NOT live without are my desk, chair, printer, laptop and telephone. Now, I have checked the prices at these cheaper stores, against the places I usually shop at and I have to say I completely guffawed at the price differences. Pretty much the same products on the cheaper site, and yet they were much cheaper in price!
Like I said above, cheap prices don't necessarily mean cheap quality, especially if they are the same brand you would buy for double the original price than at the cheaper store. Hey, I'm all about saving money. If I can go to store A and buy a leather chair for $130 or go to store B and buy a leather chair for $200, which one do you really think I'm going to pick!?! Plus on some of the big name office equipment stores you will have to pay a fee per shipping and handling unless it's over a certain amount. For example, one of the major sites has a chair for about the same price as the cheaper store for the Managerial Mid-Back Swivel/Tilt Chair, Black Leather/Black Frame, but at the major site they charge almost $100 for shipping and handling alone! The cheaper site doesn't charge shipping and handling at all. It's these small little aspects that make a huge difference's in your life.
And just because a site is cheaper doesn't mean they won't have the same brands as everyone else. Take the Basyx for example, it's on both sites, but one is cheaper with free shipping and handling. The less expensive site also offers the same supplies and equipment as the big dog stores such as:
Office supplies - Binders, Calendars, Cutting And Measuring Devices, Desk Accessories, Folders, Labels, Stamps, Office Accessories, Paper and Printable Media, Staplers, Tape, Writing And Correction Supplies.
Technology - Audio Visual Equipment, Cables Adapters And Power Products, Computer Components, Imaging Supplies, Office Machines, Storage media.
Break room & Janitorial - Facility Maintenance, Fans, Heaters, First Aid Supplies, Carts, Hygiene Products, Safety And Sanitary Wear, Paper Towels, Tissues, Wastebaskets And Garbage Bags.
Furniture - Cabinets, Racks, Shelves, Carts And Stands, Chairs And Sofas, Desks And Workstations, Tables.
If I continue to go on, I will be here for an hour. Seriously these sites offer everything you would, could or will ever need or want. What product brands do they have you ask? Alright fine I'll list a few if I must! Xerox, Maxell, Kleenex, Procter & Gamble, etc. And they also have ink toner, I don't know about you but ink gets expensive! Not on these sites! They are at least half of what they are at places like Best Buy and Staples. I mean really, have you heard a point I have made yet that wouldn't make you want to shop at these cheaper stores? Cheaper in price, Better in quality, free shipping and handling. I don't really think there is a negative aspect to these stores, at all, whatsoever. Go check them out yourself. Pick a product or an item you bought from one of the big whig stores and compare it to the less pricier one. I'm sure you will see, exactly what I see!
