San Juan Island Featured Chamber Member of the Month is the Office Center NW Inc. (dba Office Supplies PLUS!)
Roy & Anne Clauson purchased the office supply store in 2011. It has been serving the island at different Friday Harbor locations for over 30 years. They have expanded the office supply business, adding balloons, party supplies, professional artist supplies, children’s educational crafts and toys, and janitorial paper and cleaning products for businesses and restaurants. Here’s what they have to say:
“Our party supplies include a large selection of mylar and latex balloons, paper plates, cups, plastic ware, banners, streamers and all your needs for graduation, birthday, special holiday parties and summer picnics.”
In our art department we have brought in professional lines of paints and brushes. These include Daniel Smith water colors, Golden heavy body acrylics, Gamblin oils, Liquitex heavy body acrylics, Holbein water-soluble oils and Princeton brushes. We also carry Golden High Flow acrylics which are great for use with air brushes.
In addition to our large selection of pads, journals and canvases, we stock hot and cold press watercolor paper, matte board, illustration board and gessobord, claybord and encaustic bord by Ampersand. Last year we introduced R&F oil stick sets. New this year is our large selection of adult coloring books which are great gifts and amazing for relaxing at home or while traveling.
In the children’s department there is a wonderful selection of Melissa and Doug art and craft products combined with games, origami, fun looms, books and a large selection of sticker books.
We carry a broad line of “Jan-San” products for businesses and restaurants. This includes paper towels, bathroom tissue, hot and cold cups, take-out boxes, soaps and dispensers, mops, buckets and more.
Last year we expanded our retail floor space so that we can better display our office furniture. We have a great selection of office chairs. We also have on display several lines of office furniture which includes Office Star Products Napa and Sonoma brands. Napa are wood grain laminate products (desks, bookcases and credenzas) and Sonoma are the same products in a beautiful wood veneer. Come in and have a look.
We are told we have the best greeting card selection in the San Juans which includes local artist’s cards. Come in and check out some of our fun books, chocolate, gifts, and gift wrap/bags.
Our hours are Monday thru Friday 9:30–5:30. Saturday 10–4. Thank you for shopping locally. We appreciate your business and are happy to be of service to you. If we don’t have things in stock that you need, we are happy to “special order” it for you at no additional fee.
