All Urgent Stationery Orders Taken Care Of

Many companies and organisations are closed over the Christmas 2021 period.  Some businesses however need to remain open as they offer essential services to the public or to other businesses that are in turn essential.  Octopus have limited Christmas opening hours to cater for these businesses.

The hospitality industry has one of it’s busiest periods during this time too and might occasionally run out of ink or toner for their printer.

In both of these cases, we are here to help.

Office Products Required Over Christmas?

Octopus cater to these organisations by providing essential office supplies. These usually consist of printer cartridges, printer paper and envelopes that business requires to run efficiently.

Chemist shops or your local pharmacy may require things such as credit card rolls or printer cartridges for their prescription printers.  With the best will in the world, companies often overlook little things that might seem insignificant, but an office or establishment cannot function without them.  Our Christmas opening hours are limited to 3 hours in the middle of the day to help with any urgent office supplies.  Stock items can be collected from our store in Stockport or subject to driver availability, can be delivered around Manchester and Cheshire.

We stock lots of the most common toners and inks. If you go to your cupboard and find you are without a toner cartridge for your printer, we can help.

We stock Brother, Canon, Epson, HP, Kyocera, Lexmark, Oki, Samsung and Xerox.  Even if we don’t have stock, we may be able to source the one that you do require.
