Or perhaps you have concerns about the level of customer service and technical support a local supplier can provide?  Whatever your reservations may be, you're not alone. Many business owners assume big box stores have the best prices on everything and that local suppliers can't compete, but that's just not true anymore.  Here at Egyptian Workspace Partners, we have access to more than 500 manufacturers in product categories like office supplies, janitorial products, furniture and technology, so we can continue to provide you with the same selection of products as the big box stores.   In this article, we'll dive into how Egyptian has refined its processes to compete with the big box stores, give you the opportunity to partner with a fellow local business and support your local community.
