After serving the local community for 22 years, Officeworks Werribee temporarily closed its doors for a refurbishment to improve the shopping experience. It was the first Officeworks store to have a refurbishment take place while closed.

The 1,323 square metre store offers an increased product range including expanding from three to eight self-serve printers to enhance efficiency for the Print and Create service. The store was re-oriented to effectively utilise floor space and provide a more streamlined customer experience.

As part of ongoing commitments to sustainability, the store features new premium sustainability integrations including solar panels. Customers can also shop for plant based, reusable and recycled products from the People and Planet range, and recycle unwanted products such as printers, laptops and pens and markers in store as part of the Bring it Back program.

To further support the community and provide local students with equitable access to educational resources, the store team donated $2,000 in re-opening donations to Werribee Primary School and Activate Youth. This follows the 36 local community groups the team had already supported earlier this year.

Officeworks Werribee store business manager, Shaun Campbell said, “We are excited to re-open our doors and welcome the community into our refreshed, new-look store. There is the same familiar, organised and clean layout we know our customers enjoy, but the refurbishment enables a more enhanced and efficient customer experience. Our 50-strong team of Werribee locals have all remained working at the store during the refurbishment process and are eager to showcase everything the new store has to offer.”

Officeworks Werribee celebrated its re-opening on Monday 29 April alongside valued partners, community groups and team members. Residents and surrounding communities were also invited to attend a Community Fun Day on Saturday 4 May to enjoy free activities at Officeworks Werribee such as an arts and crafts workshop, face painting, exclusive giveaways and more.
