Take the stress out of back to school shopping this summer and let Officeworks take care of everything you need to get your youngster organised and prepared for the 2010 school year.

As well as the latest in cool and colourful back to school products that the kids will love, Officeworks is pleased to offer a wide range of handy back to school services, designed to help parents save precious time and money.

According to Officeworks’ Student Supplies Buyer Kelly Gillingham, for many parents, the key goal of the busy back to school period is to get everything done as quickly, cheaply and as easily as possible.

“Officeworks is here to help!” Kelly said. “We’re here to make back to school shopping as simple as possible with our new range of time-saving services, such as our pre-packed school kits, book list assistance and online offerings.”

Getting ready for school is made painless and trouble-free with four easy ways to shop with Officeworks, your back to school specialists.

Officeworks Drop Off Your School List Service
Customers can save serious time with the Officeworks Drop Off Your School List Service - all it takes is a quick visit to your local Officeworks store where an Officeworks Team Member will run through the list of school requirements with you.

“We’ll then select the necessary school supplies and have them packed and ready for collection 48 hours later,” Kelly said.

“This leaves our customers more time for themselves and families while Officeworks takes care of all their booklist needs.”

Once you drop in your booklist, Officeworks will do the rest, ensuring that your child is equipped with everything they require to launch into the new school year. This free service is available across all Officeworks stores nation-wide.

The Officeworks Drop of your School List Service will be available the week commencing Monday, 9 November 2009, through to Friday, 26 February 2010.

Officeworks Primary School Starter Packs
Officeworks’ newest initiative, ready-to-go Primary School Starter Packs, are the ideal solution for busy parents looking to organise their child’s academic needs in one simple step. The pre-packaged boxes – tailored to each academic grade from years prep to six - give parents a helping hand by including 80 per cent of school list stationery requirements.

Year levels are differentiated by colour coded boxes to make it simpler to identify the pack your child will need. Starting from $54.90, the Primary School Starter Packs are not only conveniently prepacked to save you time, but also competitively priced so they won’t cost you a fortune.

“Our Primary School Starter Packs comprise national brand products, as featured on school lists across the country, so children are sure to have almost everything they need – all in the one pack,” Kelly said.

“Whether purchasing stationery for a first year preppy, or final year primary schooler – Officeworks has you covered.”

From 15 November, busy parents will also be able to view the contents of the Officeworks Primary School Starter Packs online at www.officeworks.com.au/school. Packs will be available in store, nationwide from Monday, 26 December 2009 while stocks last.

Officeworks Click and Collect Service
Officeworks Click and Collect is a service that is as easy as its name suggests. It allows busy parents to shop for back to school products at any time of the day or night - online at www.officeworks.com.au.

All customers need to do is simply ‘click and collect’, it’s that easy,” said Kelly.

“Once you have selected all of your back to school needs, including the special requests `from your youngster for a pink pencil case or must-have brightly coloured book covering, your order will be despatched to your nominated store.”

Depending on time of order and nominated store location, delivery will take between one and three days. Keeping convenience cost effective, Click and Collect customers will incur only a small handling fee of $4.95.

Officeworks Shop Online
Officeworks’ online shopping option exists all year round, but is particularly convenient for parents during the back to school season. Between the Christmas rush and the annual summer camping holiday, there is often not a lot of time left to knock off all the things on your To Do List before school starts back.

“Officeworks has all of your academic stationery needs available around the clock and at the click of the button,” Kelly said.

“You can view the latest range with ease online and once your back to school order is placed, it can be delivered right to your door – just ensure that someone is home to receive your stationery package.”

Convenient and quick, Officeworks online orders can arrive within as little as a few hours or up to a few days, depending on time of order placement and delivery location.

A small handling fee of $4.95 applies, and deliveries may also incur additional costs dependant on delivery location. To find out more visit www.officeworks.com.au.
