Office Essentials Will Never Make You Call the Bomb Squad

We make a big deal out of our fleet of company-owned trucks and uniformed delivery drivers. We’re proud of our drivers and they do a great job making a lot of deliveries all over Missouri and Southern Illinois, especially St. Louis and Kansas City. They are the MVPs of our company.

Beyond that, it can be a real benefit for our customers to know at a glance whose truck is pulling up to their building, or who is walking around their hallways. With Office Essentials, it’s very easy to tell, and that’s not something most of our competition can say.

They will never do what likely happened in the story below, where a delivery of office supplies was left outside a bank, prompting a call to the local bomb squad.

In fact, our drivers routinely put supplies exactly where customers want them.

They do all this while making free deliveries, by the way. Anyway, here’s the story:

An unmarked box left outside a bank in downtown Shawano prompted a bomb squad call.

Shawano police say the package was discovered around 8:30 a.m. Friday outside BMO Harris Bank. Bank employees thought the unmarked box was suspicious, so they reported it to police. The Brown-Outagamie County Bomb Squad was called in to investigate.

Authorities discovered that the box contained pens. It’s not known how the box ended up outside a door, since the bank told police that is not how it receives deliveries of office supplies.

The bomb squad cleared the scene just before noon.
