About us

Our Story

We have been supplying Stationery and Office Equipment to Commercial Businesses, Education and the growing Home Worker sector since 1948. Despite the closure of other stationers, due to Online sales, we continue to thrive as we offer a friendly, customer-focused service with a positive experience.

Over the years our business has diversified to offer additional services to include Business Design Interiors from concept through to Furniture procurement and Installation.

This is supported by our In House DSE/Ergonomics service which is available in the Home, Office and other Commercial settings.

Based in the heart of the beautiful suburb of Redland in Bristol, we remain an independent, family-owned business. Our reputation is built on solid foundations of good customer service, honesty and integrity.

We operate from our prominently positioned retail premises on the corner of Redland/Coldharbour Road, a well-known landmark to many Bristolians!

A Next Day Click and Collect service and a Next day Delivery to Business customers is available on thousands of items. Site visits for Businesses requiring Interior Design Consultancy, Furniture provision, Ergonomic Assessments for DSE (Display Screen Equipment) Desk and Chair Assessments are also available.

We provide a bespoke, professional service and listen to what our clients want, working with them to create amazing Workspaces.

Our History

Commercial Stationers & Office Equipment suppliers in Bristol since 1947, Geo S Elworthy & Co. were incorporated in 1964, and a shop was added in 1972. A local family business throughout its history, the present management bought the company in 1974 continuing an efficient, friendly and competitive service, supplying office stationery and office supplies to businesses, professional practices, and education establishments.
