Though they’ve been a steady fixture in Fayette County for nearly half a century, Watson’s Office Supply recently joined the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce. To welcome them, chamber board members and ambassadors were on hand for a formal ribbon cutting.
Watson’s Office Supply has been in business for 47 years, started by Earl Watson and wife Dorothy in 1968 at 115 W. Court St. in Washington C.H. Well known as a supplier of office products and furniture, all three children joined the business – son Dennis, daughters Joni Sword and Joyce Clay, and their husbands Steve Sword and Steve Clay. In 1976, the business relocated to 224 W. Court St. where it remains today.
Today the business is owned by Steve and Joni Sword, along with help of store greeter “Lou Lou” the terrier. Watson’s is open, providing the same great services as back in 1968, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. There is also an antique section as well as custom, self-inking stamps.
Their full list of products is available online at www.watsonsofficsupply.com. While the actual building that houses Watson’s is for sale, the business is still going strong and will remain in Fayette County in the future. Due to internet popularity, a large location is not needed and Watson’s plans to relocate to a smaller location if the building sells. Rest assured, Watson’s is here to take care of your office supply and furniture needs for many years to come and the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce welcomes Watson’s to the chamber family.
