About Us

Get the service you want at the prices you need all in one place.

Huge Selection

From the front office to the back of the warehouse and for every desk at home or away, we have the biggest selection of products at the best prices.

Big Box Prices, Small Town Service

We’re owned by Office Depot, so we have access to thousands of products that we offer at big box prices to accommodate customers both big and small. Just ask. We’ll help.

Easy Peasy

Ordering has never been easier. We offer a single point of contact to help you get what you need. Call, email or go online for fast, reliable, efficient service.

But There’s More

We do way more than office products. We offer print shop and interior design services and create branded swag to boost your brand. Check out OD 360, where customers can host their own company store, Trio Supply for restaurant supply needs, and Warewash and Laundry, our linen and dishware service.

Our History

Founded in downtown Minneapolis, in 1906, by two brothers with the last name of Bertelson, over the years we have grown, moved to new buildings, taken on additional product categories and became a regional organization. We currently have offices in Fargo and Grand Forks with our home office in Minneapolis.
