Micro Center® to Offer Wallet-Friendly Inkjet Refilling Service from Ink-O-Dem®
Ink refills cost 50 percent less than buying a new cartridge and are kind to environment
Columbus, OH and Chicago, IL (November 30, 2010) ― Micro Center, a subsidiary of Micro Electronics, Inc. and one of the nation's largest computer retailers, today announced that it will offer a new inkjet cartridge refilling service from Ink-O-Dem in all 23 Micro Center stores nationwide.
Ink-O-Dem inkjet cartridge refills cost half of what a new cartridge costs, so Micro Center's customers no longer have to spend a lot of money on printer ink for their home office or business. In addition, refilling printer cartridges, instead of throwing them away, spares landfills about 60,000 tons of industrial grade plastic every year, according to Lyra Research.
Micro Center’s Director of Service Eric Schneider stated, "Our customers are always our number one priority and we constantly refine our offerings to accommodate their needs. Ink-O-Dem’s inkjet cartridge refills are the perfect answer for people watching their budgets in this uncertain economy.”
“We are delighted to partner with such a popular retailer to provide printer ink that everyone can afford. Micro Center is a convenient, logical destination for people to go for their printer ink needs,” said Harry Nicodem, CEO of Ink-O-Dem.
