Office Club member wins National Stationery Week retailer competition


Office Club member Marple Stationery Supplies recently won the first ever National Stationery Week retailer window competition.

A total of 92 retailers of all sizes entered the new competition, dressing their storefronts and web stores with a free POS pack for the chance to win product from main sponsors Sheaffer and Nu:Notebooks.

Marple Stationery Supplies, which has been an official retailer to the annual stationery event for the past three years and a regular attendee at Office Club networking events, brightened up its windows with ‘Stationery Addict’ badges and product displays, including the boldly coloured National Stationery Week logo.

Sarah Laker, owner of Marple Stationery Supplies, was delighted to win the award: “We’re extremely proud to have won the National Stationery Week retailer window competition! As an independent retailer, our window displays are vital, giving us a place to showcase what we offer before entering the store. It’s also a fun and varied way to think about how to get people into the store.

“I’ve completely changed the way I do window displays over the last year, listening to Office Club’s advice about ‘less is more’ and simple windows. It’s definitely paying off, not only in winning competitions either, customers have noticed, several have said they look out for when I change the display to see what’s next and, dare I whisper, that sales are slightly up on last year.”
