About College

College Copy Shop Presents:

A Brief History.

We have been in business for over 37 years meeting the needs of today’s discerning buyer of print services.

In 1968 College Copy Shop began in Toronto. Our current owner, Salim Bhimji, worked there from 1975 until 1977 when he moved to Edmonton. On October 10th 1978 College Copy Shop opened in Edmonton. Salim became the Manager and only employee of the first location in Edmonton. In 1981 Salim took over as owner in Alberta, expanding to 6 locations. In the early 90’s College Copy Shop right-sized its operations to 2 locations in Edmonton and sold the 2 Calgary locations.

After 22 years downtown College Copy Shop decided it was time to move to a bigger location and in 2000 moved to our current downtown location at 10221-109 Street.

Over the years the dedication of staff and management continues to be second to none, remaining true to our Reason D’terre by not being so big so as to not allow the “best customer service experience”.
