A MORAY STATIONERY supplier is set to give away thousands of pounds worth of stock free of charge to clear their stores for new supplies.

In an unusual move that will be welcomed by consumers throughout the region, Elliott Office Equipment based in Elgin have come up with a unique plan to rid themselves of older inkjet printer cartridges that are almost at their sell-by date.

Elliot – the oldest stationery supplier in the town – say they have several thousand inkjet printer cartridges for which they would like to find homes before they pass their expiry date, by which time the firm would not be able to sell them in any case.

Des Elliott, who owns and operates the company from Abbey Street in Elgin explained:  “Over the years we have collected a huge amount of cartridges for a huge range of printers. Unfortunately after a certain date we cannot sell them.

“They are still in good working order so we are looking to give them away for free in order to clear up space for new stock.

“We are not saying that we will be able to match our supplies to everyone and obviously because of the nature of this offer it will be a strictly first come first serve basis.”

Elliott’s started operating in 1988 and are suppliers of a wide range of goods to businesses throughout the north of Scotland.

Anyone interested in the surplus cartridges – there are around 4000 available – is invited to contact the company by email to providing details of their printer and the company will try to match their supply and get back to them as soon as possible.
