A Quick Tip by drifter51

My wife and I were spending a small fortune on replacement ink cartridges for our Canon printer. Enough already! We decided to fight back by giving the folks at Cartridge World a try. Replacing either the Canon CL-41 color cartridge or the CL-52 photo cartridge at one of the big-box office stores was now around $38.00 each. Ridiculous! At Cartridge World replacement are just $15.99 each. So far, so good. The quality of the printing has not diminished the least bit. Only downside is that the Canon printer does not recognize non-Canon products and as a result you never know how much ink you have left. Since our printer is getting older anyway this seems a small price to pay for the amount of money we are saving. If there is a Cartridge World in your area I recommend that at the very least you stop in and check it out.

In 1999 the company's name was changed to Cartridge World. In 2004 in the United States, they were growing at roughly one store per day. They currently have over 1,650 stores open worldwide.

OEM printer manufacturers, such as HP and Epson, have challenged cartridge refill industries to compete with their increasing market share. Cartridge World continued to experience "double digit" growth in store-to-store sales through-out 2009.[citation needed].

Cartridge World operates on a franchise system and doesn't require store operators to have any prior technical skills. In the US, it provides as much as 80-hours of training to new franchisees before they open their stores. Shops are typically set up in suburbs and inner-city locations close to small businesses and consumers that would prize proximity and ...
