Our story

How it all started

"Our success is not only due to the quality of our service; it's down to our attitude, approach, and the way we treat our customers."

Officecentre is part of the modern incarnation of a New Zealand family business that spans three generations based in Kaitaia. The relationship with Kaitaia goes back even further to 1834 when one of our ancestors, Rev. Joseph Matthews, was the founding father of the township.

We're your local.....Nationwide

Many people falsely believe that the big corporate retailer will give you a better deal. We continually expose that myth. Our range is massive and growing daily, our prices are competitive if not better, plus we give the service only independent retailers can.

Life Values

As a rural retailer we need customers for life because there are not many to choose from in a small rural town. And, if we do something wrong everyone knows by lunchtime! So real customer service is what we do! Every reasonable request will be always answered with a "YES".
