Business Spotlight: Cartridgeworld
Tell us your story. What does your business offer its customers and what drives you to be the best provider of this service/product?:
Cartridge World-Lee's Summit is THE business in LS that offers the largest selection of remanufactured ink and toner cartridges. If you have an obsolete printer, we have cornered that niche market. If we don't have the parts in stock, we can usually order them and keep your older, sturdy printer alive and printing. When someone needs to upgrade, we offer the customer expert advice when they are shopping for a new printer.
What is the business culture? Tell us why others would want to work with/for you?:
We are casual, but always professional. We offer free delivery with a qualifying minimum order to many areas of the metro.
What is a business success story from the previous three years?:
There used to be seven locations in the metro; each individually owned and operated. Five of these locations have closed. We are members of the Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, and Pleasant Hill Chambers of Commerce. Opportunities abound for small business in the LS Chamber. And because we remain active here in our COC, we are still in operation. We have customers that have been with us since the beginning, even after all this time. The aftermarket has had an uphill battle against the reputation of online brokers who provide cheaper, knock-off cartridges. Because of our hands-on operational style and commitment to the environmentally-friendly alternative, we are still in business.
Time to toot your own horn? Give us three reasons why your business rocks and why you love what you do.:
- Cartridge World-Lee's Summit offers you an environmentally-friendly alternative to OEM cartridges while still saving you up to 40% when compared to the originals.
- This is a family-owned business. We get to meet many people and learn about businesses that we wouldn't have if it wasn't for networking this business in Lee's Summit and surrounding areas.
- We live right here in Lee's Summit and drive down the street to our job. Because we need and have an employee, our business offers us flexibility to do the things we need to do to participate in our community and take care of family.
