Choice Stationery Supplies initially started its life in Minehead, West Somerset.
Following expansion, we relocated about 10 miles up the road where we had a bespoke warehouse and remained there until 2008 when we relocated again through expansion to bespoke premises in Taunton, Somerset with our offices and warehouse all under one roof. Due to recent events, we have now moved to Creech St Michael where we are quickly outgrowing our new premises.
We're proud to employ local people with a vast knowledge of the different aspects of the trade, to include both printer consumables and stationery, some of our staff have been with Choice since they began and are an important part of the company’s success.
We provide inkjet cartridges and toners for all home and office printers, alongside an extensive range of stationery items. We supply original branded items from manufacturers like Epson, Canon, Hewlett Packard, Pentel, Bic & Sharpie, along with our own brand of cartridges under the Think Alternative range.
Our Think inkjet cartridges are very popular with our customers due to the savings they offer against the manufacturer’s original product and also the quality of printing they offer through their vivid colours and crisp black text.
When Choice started back in 1998 we knew we were entering a competitive market where a lot of other companies existed, already offering similar products and a good service. We continuously strive to match and beat the levels of service available, and feel we are succeeding with our 100%, no quibble guarantees, and our delivery inclusive prices . We keep all our advertising as simple and accurate as possible.
We also try to make it as easy as possible for you to place an order, with orders accepted via post, email, over our secure web site or by using one of our telephone lines. Of course, we always endeavour to dispatch your items the same day, via Royal Mail, or if you're local, you can expect a visit from one of our own vans and drivers.
One area where we have become market leaders is in the effort we make to ensure the quality of the products is foremost, whilst keeping the retail prices the lowest on the UK mainland.
The loyalty of our customers, who order from us time and time again, goes to prove that both our pricing and customer service speaks for its self. With over 1 million customers throughout the UK our family has grown and we thank everyone of you for your support over the years.
It was these service and pricing efforts, plus our customer’s loyalty, that helped us to receive, for the 5th year running, the honour of the Computer Active Reader's Award for 'Best Specialist Consumable Supplier' in the UK.
In recent years we reached the shortlist, along with Amazon, Dabs.com, Evesham.com & PC World for 'Best Retailer'. These are achievements we admit to constantly shouting about. Why not? We are still excited by them, after all, with a circulation of around 245,000 readers every fortnight and the numbers of you who took the trouble to vote, (for which we thank you),I think we should be proud, enjoy it and work at being the customer's favourite next time too.
Unfortunately, Choice Stationery Supplies Limited entered into administration on 9 October 2019 resulting in Julie Palmer and Stephen Powell being appointed as Joint Administrators.
Spitfire AMS Limited has reached an agreement with the Joint Administrators to use certain assets under licence for an agreed period of time until the Joint Administrators are in a position to arrange a sale of these assets. The Joint Administrators believe that this is the best way to maximise asset realisations and is in the best interest of creditors.
If you have any queries about the administration please do not hesitate to contact the Joint Administrators via email on Salisbury@begbies-traynor.com.
