Walmart version of Circa, Arc, etc.: IQ 360, "Come Full Circle" by Continental
I found a Circa/Arc (CircArc) type line of notebooks and accessories at Walmart recently. Would it be too cute to nickname them WalmArc?
This was a little while ago, but my memory is that the quality wasn't that much worse than Staples' Arc products. If I recall correctly the paper was a little thinner and the poly/vinyl covers seemed a little chintzy but not too terrible. The pages turned fairly easily without noticeable sticking. I didn't have time to make note of the prices but they were considerably cheaper than Staples. Maybe 30 to 40% less?
Likewise the pleather covers were of lesser quality, but not terribly so.
In addition to the notebooks they had a surprisingly wide range of paper & refills and accessories: task pads, To Do list pads, discs, undated weekly agenda pages, poly dividers, & refill pages. They even had a small selection of notebooks with designer colors & prints.
I just realized that all of the notebooks and the agenda pages that I took pictures of were junior size (you can tell in the pictures since there are only 8 discs), but I think they did have a few 8.5" x 11" notebooks.
