Our story begins back in the late 1980’s when we owned a small office supply store called Stationary Plus in Mt. Laurel, NJ.
At the time we sold and delivered everything from Address labels to zippered binders.
We had a customer at the time that could not afford to pay his bill. Instead he gave us 20 used chairs, which we put outside on the sidewalk in front of our store. To our surprise these chairs started to sell fast. At the time you couldn’t buy a new chair for under $100, but you could buy a used chair from us for $25. We began to experiment with files and desks and other used furniture.
We rented a small rodent infested warehouse, then a larger warehouse (there were still rodents). Soon used furniture was taking over our floor space in our small office supply shop.
