Facebook for Food
From now until Dec. 16th, we will donate a $1.00 for every new "like" to our Facebook page to the Greater Chicagoland Food Depository. Together we can really make a difference this year for those in need.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, is a nonprofit food distribution and training center providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. The Food Depository distributes donated and purchased food through a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to 678,000 adults and children in Cook County every year. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 69 million pounds of nonperishable food and fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 140,000 meals every day.

Innovative training programs and initiatives developed by the Food Depository also work to provide men, women and children with the tools necessary to break their individual cycles of poverty.

Time To Shop a Huge Success!! 

On October 6th, we gathered over 650 of our customers and 60 vendors together at the White Eagle Banquet Hall in Niles for a great day of shopping, learning and having fun! Customers were able to see and kick the tires on all the new office products available and some not coming out until 2012. From the new models of the Stack-N-Shred shredders from Acco that will shred up to 500 sheets that you simply stack in the shredder to a new line of chairs from Storlie that will soon be stocked by Garvey’s, there were loads of new products to see.

We also rolled out our latest video for our You Tube channel: G-TV. In addition to the video, our videographer captured many Garvey customers who gave fantastic testimonials about their drivers, sales rep. or favorite “nice guy.” These testimonials are also available to view on the website now.

What we realized from the many rounds of the “know your G-book” pricing games that we played is that we have the smartest customers around. It was pretty hard to stump the teams of players who played the games. All in all, it was a great day for learning about new products, finding some great bargains, and getting to meet everyone.


New Line of Chairs from Storlie–
Try Before You Buy!


Garvey’s is proud to introduce our new stocking chair line by Storlie Company. We searched for the most comfortable chairs with the best features at the most competitive price and came up with 4 chair models that we know you will love. We know buying a chair can sometimes be a tough decision by just looking at a picture, so we are offering a Try Before You Buy feature with these chairs. If you would like to see the chair before you order, simply call customer service or email sales@getgarveys.com and specify which chair you are interested in seeing. We will bring you the chair when it is available and leave it with you for 1 day to 'kick the tires'. Our driver will return the following day to pick up the sample. We are confident you will like these chairs as much as we do!

Recycle For A Reason Going Strong— StreetWise 3rd Quarter Recipient


Recycle for a Reason, Garvey’s recycling program has grown to a new level. Since 2008, we have been collecting empty toner cartridges and ink jet cartridges and pooling the money we receive for those to donate to a different local charity each quarter. To date, we have rasied over $60,000. Starting this past quarter we have added our new Computer and Electronic recycling figures to this pool and the results are really showing.

At our Vendor Show on October 6th, Dan Garvey presented a check for $5,368.83 to Streetwise. Streetwise is a local agency whose mission it is to assist Chicago area men and women who are facing homelessness. Streetwise provides personal stability through a variety of supportive social services and gainful employment. 

Thank you to all of our customers who take advantage of our Recycling Services. Please know that your empties are being put to a good use and are really making a difference!
 
Keep those cartridges and old electronics coming. Our 4th quarter recipient will be Jobs for Youth, an organization that helps Chicago young men and women from low income families find gainful employment.
