Family Owned & Operated
Connors Basics is operated by Connors Office Products Ltd., and has been family owned & operated since 1983. There are currently two Connors family members working within the organization, along with eleven loyal & dedicated staff members, which helps to ensure that customer service and quality remains our number one goal.
In the Beginning
With his previous experience in the office supplies industry, Jim Connors Sr. opened the doors of Connors Office Products Ltd. on Charlotte Street in March of 1983. With a small staff of 3 it didn’t take long to realize that the business was growing. The decision to move to a larger building was made and it is still our current location at 350 Charlotte St. in Sydney.
In July 1996, Connors Office Products Ltd. joined the BASICS buying group and changed their operating name, to reflect these alliances, to Connors Basics. While no operating or ownership changes were made and the company remains 100 % locally owned, the name change helped establish Connors Basics as a member of a nationwide organization.
The BASICS buying group is the largest independently owned office supply buying organization in Canada. Owned by its Canadian Members, BASICS has dealers from coast to coast.
