Once a minor league baseball player, Tim Derryberry is now known as a “Local Super Hero” in his community of Inland Empire, CA. This recognition comes from Tim’s dedication to providing business owners with all of their office supply needs. Of course, the title of “Local Super Hero” did not come without hard work and years of experience.
Freeman Office Products opened its doors in San Bernardino, CA in 1966 under the leadership of Jack Freeman. Tim was hired as a Sales Representative in 1986 and went on to become a General Operations Manager. After the passing of Jack Freeman in 2003, Tim and his wife Sandee purchased the business.
Freeman OP’s commitment to service, selection and savings is what sets them apart from their national competitors. “We delivery small miracles every day,” says Tim, who offers his clients same day emergency delivery to local businesses and provides free recycling services for old equipment. If a client needs something that they don’t have on hand, Freeman OP will call a secondary wholesaler and make sure the customer has what they need to complete their vital print job that day. The store averages over 20 of these same day emergency deliveries a month.
Tim and Sandee, both natives of the Inland Empire, are dedicated members of several community service organizations and are committed to spending their money locally. “We are proud to support many local businesses and we are committed to buying local whenever possible,” says Tim. In addition to shopping at local businesses like Nemo & Jacks, one of their favorite ways to show their local pride is by supporting their local baseball team, The Inland Empire 66ers. For Tim, shopping local means, “More reciprocal dollars stay in the community keeping prices fair and competitive, which contributes to the overall success and growth of the community.”
