Beat the school supply rush: Let Monk pick and pack for you

Office Outfitter TM lets you shop online … and local!
Don’t have time for back-to-school shopping? Let the Monk team do it for you!

Spending your too-short summer vacation battling the crowds for the last glue stick or the perfect pencil crayons is no fun, so why do it?

Let the Monk back-to-school pros pick and pack it for you!

With the company’s Pick and Pack program, you’ll be confident that you’re getting the quality supplies your student wants at the competitive pricing you expect, and all from a local, Island-grown company.

Better yet, you can do it without having to battle the crowds.

For families who missed the deadline for Monk’s Let Us PAC for You fundraising program with school Parent Advisory Councils, or if their school isn’t signed up yet, this is an easy, affordable alternative.

“It’s all about providing options,” explains Jane Hill, Marketing & Development Leader, one of the second-generation of the Monk Office family. “Many families enjoy shopping together in-store and we love to see them but if maximizing time outdoors is a high priority for you, like it is for me, we’re happy to do the shopping for you. We also offer online Back to School shopping.”

How does it work?

1. Simply email or drop off your child’s supply list for the coming school year – adding new items or scratching those you already have.

2. Pick it up at any Monk store on Vancouver Island – we’ll call when it’s ready and hold onto it until you’re ready – ideal if you’re school supply shopping while on vacation. Kids missing the shopping experience? Bring them along when you pick up your order and let them pick out one or two special items, Hill suggests.

3. Feel good knowing that along with excellent products and pricing, you’re supporting a local company. Monk, your Office OutfitterTM, is also your school supply provider, serving and supporting Vancouver Island for 66 years. Back-to-school time also brings a number of community initiatives, such as deeply discounted supplies provided to help groups like the Mustard Seed Fair Start program and Surrounded by Cedar ensure all students have the best chance at success.

Yes, with Monk, back-to-school shopping can be as easy as 1,2,3!
