About Us

Village Stationers got its start in 1966. Lois and Al Hoctor bought a little stationery store in the Palo Alto Town and Country Village. Then in 1976, they moved the store to Menlo Parks Santa Cruz Avenue. In 1996, I relocated to our current location 719 Santa Cruz Avenue.

In 1988, I opened a location on University Avenue in Palo Alto. I moved the Palo Alto store to 310 S. California in 2002, as of April 30, 2016 the Palo Alto location has been closed.

Just last year in 2012 I opened our third location at 222 Main Street in Los Altos.

Both stores have their own personality. Each store has its unique selection of products driven by the customers and the buyers for that particular location.

Each store has a unique blend of greeting cards, gifts, gift wrapping supplies and party goods. We feature Recycled Greetings, Crane papers and a number of other fine greeting card and stationery lines.

You will find just about anything you need for your office supply needs. We carry everything from paper clips to paper shredders. We also have a full compliment of HP, Canon and Epson ink jet cartridges.

Something unique to Village Stationers is our open pen aisle where you can select from a wide variety of pens available for you to try out, right on the spot!
