Hi, I used to do my childrens book orders through Woolridges, but they are no longer there, i believe they had financial trouble and closed their stores. I have sourced this year's supplies from a newsagent,(through the school) and have just spent time coverering their scrapbooks. I was very dissapointed with the quality of the scrapbooks, the front cover is such flimsy paper, not like the woolridge ones, which were much better quality. Not that they keep all there scrapbooks though!

If you live in W.a where do you get youre child's booklist orders from now, or do you get it through the school.

I used to hate shopping at Wooldridges as their service was crap.  Now I do a mix of Office Max in Osborne Park for textbooks and paper and OfficeWorks for stationery.

I got our girls' supplies through the school, who in turn I believe get it through Office Max.  I know Officeworks will fill school orders if you bring the booklist in and they do all the work for you. biggrin.gif

I used Cristal JBE Office Choice in High Rd Willetton. This is the new supplier our school uses (used to use Wooldridges). Has self service option in store and online service.

Our school recommended order through Office Max.  A good portion of one of my DS's list and a few of the other one is on back order.  I got an email yesterday to say that I have another order coming so I'm hoping it's at least the rest of the one that's half missing.  I haven't had an issue with the quality of anything as yet.

OUr school used OfficeMax, orders home delivered within a week. I hadn't used Woolridges for the last couple of years as they are over priced, instead would drop off at Officeworks until the called saying ready to pick up. Saved over $60 last year so worth it.

But how do those of you getting them from Officeworks get the text books and other specialised items?  We had quite a few things on ours that they said they wouldn't have so we used Cristal Office Choice as that is who the school recommended and arranged for them to mail it out to us.

Thanks for youre replies, the trouble is i only have a week to order scrapbooks now as they start school next <Monday!  But i have got a few to be going on with from last year - Woolridges ones. I would have to do a mail order as i live in country W.A, so i would have to use a mail order supplier, do OfficeMax do mail orders?

Campion is online as well as having a shop. Our school book list was  registered with them so I don't know about individual orders but you could always ask. Campion.com.au

Mine were all posted direct to me at no extra charge. I found the scrapbooks at the newsagency to be the same as the Wooldriges last year.

Our school used Campion as well - it was pretty much the same deal as Wooldridge's.

Since we didn't have textbooks, I ordered almost everything from Officeworks - it was over the amount for free shipping and I didn't have to go there twice.

Our school uses Office Max, but honestly we had most of the stuff already this year (rulers, pencilcases, calculator, compass etc), so I just filled in the blanks at Big W - glue sticks, pens, highlighters, whiteboard pens etc.
