Australia’s leading retailer of technology, stationery, furniture, art supplies, and learning and development resources, Officeworks has celebrated its 30th birthday.

From humble beginnings with a single store in Richmond to becoming a household name, Officeworks has reflected on three decades of innovation, sustainability, community support, and dedication to customers, team members and partners.

Officeworks managing director, Sarah Hunter expressed her gratitude: “Celebrating 30 years is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our incredible team members, the loyalty of our customers, and the strong relationships with our partners. We are immensely thankful to everyone who has been part of this journey.

“Families remain at the heart of Officeworks, relying on us for solutions that help their households and businesses operate day-to-day. Over the last 30 years, we have evolved our ranges to better meet the changing needs of customers, including the acceleration of digitisation and the expanding business-to-business landscape and I am incredibly excited for what’s to come.

“We have a strong future as we continually invest in innovation, expand our offerings, and most importantly, remain committed to inspiring our customers to work, learn, create and connect, and in turn, help make bigger things happen, together.”

Officeworks acknowledges the 40 dedicated team members who have each devoted 30 years of service to the business.

One team member’s journey began on October 17, 1994. Over the past 30 years, Dee has significantly contributed across various locations, starting at Officeworks Ringwood for 24 years, followed by Ferntree Gully for almost 15 months, and currently at Bayswater. Her versatility shines through her roles in technology, POS, and night-fill, along with experience in cash office and keyholder training.

“I’m honoured to be celebrating 30 years of Officeworks and being one of the many long-standing team members. A career highlight for me includes witnessing the exciting transformation of our store design, evolution of the product ranges and getting to know so many wonderful customers. I have also enjoyed working with such a great group of people, the support provided since having my family and just being part of an incredible business,” Dee said.
