Welcome to the New Year and our new blog. As your local source for office copiers and printers we will be posting helpful tips and quips from our industry. For those of you who are new to the Preston brand we thought we would introduce ourselves with an article written by St. George Health and Wellness Magazine.
How Preston Got Started
When young Richard Preston hand-delivered fliers to Saint George residents in 1976 to promote his parent’s new business, R & K Bookstore, he never imaged he would be the owner of an expanding and successful business of his own and the central link in a three-generation chain of local businesses. At that time, Richard’s father, Ken, had already instilled in him – by word and example – the secrets to success in business and in life: have integrity; build quality relationships; be fearless; be determined; keep your word; go above and beyond. Using these values as his guide, Richard opened Preston Office Supply in 1983.
The Local Touch
Today, the Preston sales and service team gladly provides what they call “the local touch”: a free evaluation and analysis of any business’s office printing needs and equipment. Using the results, the Preston team works with business owners to decide what options are best. Through this service, they are often able to save clients money and boost their productivity.
We Find Solutions For Every Type of Business
Many local businesses have experienced Preston’s unique customer care. A local pharmacy had, for years, purchased all of their office printers and copiers from large national chains, often online. While their online purchases appeared to be cheaper it turned out that they were not, additionally they had no one to turn to when the equipment broke or malfunctioned: the pharmacy would simply throw the broken equipment away and purchase another. Preston Office Solutions was able to evaluate the pharmacy’s needs, set them up with a new copier/printer on a cost per page plan (Managed Print Services), and save them thousands of dollars a year while providing local service and equipment that worked.
How Preston’s Is Different
According to Richard, this is the difference between a concierge service experience and a “shopping” experience.
Looking back over the years, Richard recognizes that the Preston name has been solidly associated with the Saint George business community for nearly thirty-five years.
“Big box stores and big corporations can move in,” he says, “but with Preston Office Solutions, you will always get treated with respect and the suggestions we make will be in our customers best interest.” “Preston Office Solutions makes personalized service the heart of the way we conduct business.”
