The store will initially feature around 500,000 products for sale, according to a company release. The new division of the Seattle-based online retailer will carry staplers, envelopes, writing supplies, adhesives, ink and toner and other office supplies.

 

Manufacturers whose products will be featured in the store include Avery, Hammermill, Papermate, Midland Paper, Russell & Hazel and Raymond Geddes.

 

The office supply store will have tools available on the rest of the site including customer reviews and discussion boards.
