General Stores provides The University of Iowa with office products, custodial supplies, paper, copy machine supplies, and specialty products such as dry ice and softener salt. It also operates a gas cylinder pick-up and delivery service.  Although some items are kept in stock at General Stores, many more are available through an office supply vendor on contract with the University. Presently, that vendor is Office Depot. Print catalogs are available on request.

Vendor alert

It has come to our attention that vendors are calling UI departments to market copier and printer toner and ink cartridges. These vendors do not represent the General Stores contract with Office Depot, and departments should NOT order supplies from them. Typically, although the pricing may sound attractive in the phone call, it ends up being significantly more expensive than our contract prices. Often these vendors give the impression that you are purchasing new, original, equipment-manufactured toners when in reality you will receive low-quality reconditioned toners.
