Highest Selling School Exercise Book Raises Quality Bar

Today Warehouse Stationery announces that Impact, the biggest selling school exercise books in NZ retail, has been accredited with the highest quality assurance standard in school stationery by Standards New Zealand.

As the multi-channel stationery retailer heads into what is shaping up to be its busiest ‘Back To School’ season ever, the new accreditation means customers can be confident of getting outstanding value when shopping their school lists.

Warehouse Stationery CEO, Pejman Okhovat says: “We know that sending kids back to school at the start of each year is a financial burden for many Kiwi families and that the lack of supplier choice can mean that some parents pay over the odds for stationery and other school items.

“As a customer led business we are constantly improving the value of our offering, which is why the new quality assurance mark for Impact, combined with the lowest prices guaranteed, means that we can help relieve some of the financial burden parents face.

“With around 2.5million of these exercise books being sold during last year’s back to school, we’re delighted that our Impact exercise books now have the highest quality assurance standard – the same as Warwick exercise books.

“The great quality and low prices - from as little as five cents per exercise book - make Impact the ideal choice for parents equipping their young ones with the best back to school stationery at the country’s lowest prices,” says Mr Okhovat.
