Good Office Supply Store similar to "Staples" in U

Post by barbaraus » Fri, 12 Oct 2007 6:24 pm

Hi,

Is there a good office supply store or chain in Singapore similar to Staples or OfficeMax in the US ? I tried upstairs at Carrefour which has
one aisle of such items, but I'm looking for more selection. Items such as folders, pens in bulk, highlighters, whiteboard accessories, etc..
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Barbara

About the closest to an office supply store I ever found was the Popular bookstores, Orchard MRT or Marine Parade or Jurong MRT are the ones I know to find. But nothing like what you are familiar with . . .

You could also try Giant @ IMM in Jurong East. But it's going to be a lot like Carrefour I would suspect.

Aah, yes, maybe, but it's basically like Popular, It's at one end of the floor and occupies the whole end but it's more retail than commercial in nature but might do.

Maybe you're thinking of Stationery Superstore? I think the Popular at Bras Basah is a bit more comprehensive -- but its pretty close. Barbara, neither one is Office Max, but you'll find most of what you're looking for. Go to Funan if you need computer related items. Bras Basah if you want to walk through Raffles or need Art supplies from Art Friend.
