Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) October 28, 2007
As industry insiders estimate that by 2010 40% of the population may be self-employed the office supply industry has taken note. No longer are office supply stores focusing on large accounts with the primary source of business coming from micro-businesses and small businesses.
As more Americans open home offices and small businesses, eOfficeDirect.com, a leading office furniture and office supply retailer, has announced free shipping on office furniture and office supply orders exceeding $50. This move is seen as an important first step in building long relationships with new business owners during a time of great small business growth.
Savvy home business owners and small business owners shop online for office supplies and office furniture. Online retailers offer steeper discounts and wider selections. The online retailer generally has significantly lower overhead costs that allow the online retailers like eOfficeDirect.com to pass those savings along to consumers. The prices at eOfficeDirect.com are significantly lower than prices offered at local office supply stores and other online retailers.
In the competition among online retailers, offering free shipping is an important consideration. Consumers know that they are saving money on the product and tax, but if shipping costs are high, those savings are negated. eOfficeDirect.com's announcement of free shipping will likely put them ahead of the competition for office supplies and office furniture retailers.
