Originally “Robert’s Office Supply”, located in Effingham, IL, Robert’s merged with the Midwest Office family in October 2008. Midwest Office’s Effingham location has had a long history as an office supply retailer. Beginning in the late 1940s, Ernie Schottman began selling Smith Corona typewriters out of his family’s feed store/chicken hatchery located at 100 E. Washington. Mr. Schottman also sold appliances and paint in the early years. The feed business gradually closed down as office supplies became more prevalent. Mr. Schottman retired and sold the business to Randall and Shelia Roberts in October 1991. Today, Brenda Will has taken over as branch manager and continues to oversee the day to day operations for Midwest Office.
