About Us

Browns Office Choice (formerly Browns Bookstore and Wholesale Stationery) has been supplying office products, school stationery and school text to the local community since 1970. Under the management of the Brimblecombe families, the aim is to make service the number one priority to our existing and new customers, while still keeping prices as low as possible.

Browns Office Choice is a 100% locally owned and operated business. We are a part of the local community employing up to 45 qualified local people who understand your business needs and requirements. We will offer you the highest and friendliest levels of customer service and support for all your office products from basic pens and paper to computer consumables.

Browns Office Choice is a member of the Office Choice Group, giving us world-wide buying power through the largest office products buying group, B.P.G.I. With this buying power behind us we can source products with the best quality and price. We stock all the well-known brands but also have our own quality branded products.

Browns Office Choice also makes a commitment to giving you what you require. This means if we don`t stock it, we will source it for you. We can arrange to print your business stationery, supply your office furniture etc. We will go that extra step!

We have a great range of 7000 products in The Big Red Catalogue plus access to about another 8000+ products. Please feel free to come in to our store located in the Bernoth Centre where we stock the majority of our catalogue products. Our staff will happily assist you with any of your requirements.

Along with great service, great range and great price we also guarantee same day free delivery with no handling fees on orders over $30. We also make a commitment to minimise backorders and will contact you if a problem occurs with products.

At present you can place your order online, phone, fax or email your orders, or to assist you, we also have company reps who can call in to see you.

Retail customers may receive a credit to the value of the amount of the sale upon provision of the receipt of purchase if the product is returned to Browns in an unused and saleable condition within 30 days of purchase.

Browns Office Choice is the largest provider of Pre-packed booklists to schools in the Toowoomba and surrounding areas. All booklists can be ordered online with online payment also available if desired. (Online payment saves time when collecting your pack!)

Browns Office Choice also offers a FREE packing service for all lists placed with our store after the pre-pack cutoff date, as well as for all other school lists ordered online or dropped in to our store.

If your school list does not appear on our website you may build your own list from the SCHOOL NEEDS and SCHOOL TEXT sections if you desire.
