Miller’s Supplies at Work just had its 45th anniversary! To celebrate these many years of service and dedication, here are five things you most likely didn’t know about our Washington D.C. office supply company.
Miller’s has a dedicated leader
Pat Miller began the company 45 years ago with determination and a strong work ethic. At a time when most businesses were owned by men, Pat resolved to put her business knowledge to use and create a business that would help her achieve her goals.
Pat is an active member of the team
From jobs as a teenager to today, Pat has always been ready to assist and help customers in any way they need. Pat is known for both taking initiative and providing great service. Pat always had a deep respect for trusting people and believes that it results in smoother business transactions. Consistently living a frugal lifestyle, Pat has always found a way to cut unnecessary expenses and do a lot of the work herself.
By 1979 Pat owned 4 retail stores
The ‘Big Box’ store invasion of the 1980s had many customers leaving smaller, local offices in favor of larger stores. This shift in buying habits encouraged Pat to radically rethink her business operation, which brought about Pat’s focus on business-to-business sales, as well as focusing her efforts on building a solid customer service department and delivery team for more personalized service.
Miller’s has a strong spirit of competition
Pat fully understands that in order for Miller’s to be competitive, it has to both match and exceed what competitors are providing. Miller’s routinely sets itself apart as the best option through its competitive pricing, innovative product offerings and unmatched customer service.
