Toronto office supply shops to get you through the workday

Even in the digital age, offices still need a ton of supplies to keep them running smoothly. When an email just won't suffice, these Toronto shops stock the pens, staplers, notebooks, printers and all the other office accessories you need to be a success in the here and now.

Midoco Art & Office Supplies

1
555 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M5S 1Y6

Some of the best customer service is found in smaller stores, and Midoco leads by example. They’re truly a family-run business; owners Michael and Cecile first opened the shop in 1978 and today their kids help out around the store. You can shop in person at their Annex or Beaches location, or online from the comfort of your own home. Either way, they offer regular specials, so check out their “featured items” section.

Everyday Office Supplier

2700 Dufferin St, York, ON M6B 4J3

This store is huge and has a mighty impressive inventory to fill the space. You can find items for any type of office environment, whether you work in multiple places around the world and need on-the-go-gadgets to keep up with you or there’s just one place you call home. If you get a little carried away while shopping and can’t carry everything home with you, the shop offers free next-day delivery.

Wonder Pens

906 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1W1

You’ll find things are on a smaller scale here, making this shop the perfect place to stock up on your office’s missing pieces. They specialize in all things writing, making computers and email seem like a far-off fantasy yet to be realized.

181 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1J4

Walking in here is a bit like traveling back in time in the best possible way. This King East store has plenty of character and stocks and array of office furniture you can’t find anywhere else. Everything is on the really good side of quality and covers a range of time periods. As a bonus, they can also supply tables, chairs and desks for larger-sized workplaces so they’ll outfit your office space perfectly – and make it look gorgeous, too.

Rotblott's Discount Warehouse

5
443 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1S9

It’s rare to find a warehouse in downtown Toronto, let alone one that deals in discounted items, but this one stands apart from the crowd by ticking off both boxes. It enjoys that luxury because it’s been around since 1917 when Israel Rotblott started a scrap metal business. He passed it on to his sons – Murray and Mike – and to his grandson, Howard, and Howard passed it on to his son, Andrew. From packing supplies to cleaning products, you can find everything you need at this true family-owned office supply shop.

Laywine's

25 Bellair St, Toronto, ON M5R 3L3

Before you decide that your budget should be the ultimate ruler, check out this shop where every item has a story behind it. You can get a fountain pen that was crafted in Italy, a notebook with acid-free paper and luxury stationery to take office memos up a notch. Whatever you need, the combination of quality and excellent customer service will make you a buyer for life – long after computers take over completely.

The Paper Place

887 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G5

Every office relies on paper, no matter how digital or high-tech the work has become.
