Our History

Office Peeps is our new name. But we’ve been around for years.

Cook’s Office Machines opens in Watertown, SD, selling and servicing Olivetti calculators. Remember those? Probably not.
Cook’s is the top Olivetti calculator retailer in the U.S.
Cook’s now employs 15 people and becomes Cook’s Office Products, Inc.
A group of salespeople left Cook’s to form Office Systems, Inc (OSI). The company grows quickly, becoming a complete office solutions provider.
The owners of OSI purchase Cook’s, bringing the companies back together and creating a reserve of knowledge, expertise and purchasing power.
OSI changes its name to Office Peeps. The name highlights what’s unique and special about the company – its people.
Office Peeps purchased Office Necessities with its location in Huron – an exciting opportunity to add great people to the organization and grow in a nice community.
Central Business Supply located in Brookings & Madison, SD joined the Office Peeps family. This addition allowed us to expand with two new store locations and several fantastic associates.
