WHY EGYPTIAN? LITTLE EGYPT, ILLINOIS, USA

Our region of Southern Illinois has been known as “Little Egypt” for hundreds of years. The nickname has a couple origin stories: one referencing the historic grain trade between southern and northern Illinois, and another, the intersecting rivers of the region. At Egyptian, we just know that Belleville, IL is our home. We are proud of this location that allows us to provide the best service in business products and interiors to the entire St. Louis region and beyond.

We have  ALOT of competition.

We know you can buy items that we sell at WalMart, Staples, OfficeMax, Amazon, and CDW to name a few.  We all have price guarantees.

The products and pricing will be similiar.

What Happens After the Sale Will Not Be.

Rather than toot our own horn on this page, we believe you should check out reviews for any company you are looking at dealing with on Google as that will be a more honest review of anything we could tell you.
