In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Office Central will not be accepting returns of any personal protective equipment (including but not limited to hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, facial tissue, toilet paper, paper towels and associated dispensers) until further notice. We have seen some customers purchase more than 'normal' volumes of certain products (i.e. toilet tissue, hand sanitizers, paper/hand towel, cleaning products). Like other major retailers around Canada, we will not refund items that are deemed to have been purchased in this manner based on a change of mind after they have been shipped.
