This is a question every company should ask themselves. What do we have to offer that others do not?
At Monk Office you’ll find more than 100 people who ‘speak office’ in the most friendly, helpful, expert way. We’re dedicated, hard-working and we’re here day after day, year after year, to make sure that you get the products you need, at the prices you want. We’ve been serving you in Victoria and on Vancouver Island for more than 60 years, and we’re very proud of it.
In 1951 we opened the doors to our first store, Murphy Stationery, in the heart of downtown Victoria. This premiere store, located at the corner of Fort and Broad Streets, operated under the guidance of Charlie Monk, who purchased the store in 1956 and changed the name to Monk Office Supply. Following years of operating successfully, and moving the store to a higher traffic location on Government Street, Charlie sold to Ron McKenzie.
Today, we have ten retail locations, five in Victoria, one in Sidney, Duncan, Courtenay, Campbell River and Port Hardy, Furniture Idea Showrooms in Victoria and Nanaimo, plus an office furniture division and commercial stationery sales. You can shop Monk Office online 24/7/365, and we’re part of the BASICS Office Products buying group, the largest buying group in Canada. This gives us major purchasing power to ensure that you always get the best value.
Most importantly, however, we are a company that cares about our customers, our community and our environment. We ensure that our staff are trained to offer the best service possible, with specialists in Technology, Furniture and Imaging in each of our stores. We contribute to the community through donations, volunteer work and event participation, and we are also proud to say that we’re an IS014001:2004 certified company. As of February 2013, we have reduced paper consumption by 61%, water consumption by 77% and our waste production by 91% since 2007. We are committed to a world in which every generation inherits a better, cleaner earth than the one before it. We expect more from ourselves than from the soil, and give back more than we take.
Why should you choose us? Because of what we believe, and what we can offer. We truly are knowledgeable people passionate about your personal and professional success.
