It's that time of year again where students and teachers are gearing up to head back to school. It's also the best time to stock up on necessary supplies, as many stores in the area are running sales.
CVS offers a lot of the basics like pens and paper for cheap, but also locker accessories and supplies for those going off to college for the first time. Mini dry erase boards and mirrors are 25 percent off, as are all backpacks and lunch bags. For the dorm room, desk lamps, tables and storage cubes are available.
Mr. Atif, manager of the North Jerusalem Road CVS explained that the biggest deals this week include a three-in-one ink jet printer by Lexmark for only $39.99 and a 7-inch portable digital LCD TV for $79.99.
"We have a lot of TVs available," he explained.
The best deal on marble notebooks and spiral notebooks is at Rite Aid. Marble notebooks are priced at three for $1.98 and the spirals are four for $2.00. However, an additional $1 rebate can be mailed in for both items making this the best place to stock up on those essentials.
Teacher's Tools has a great selection of products for students. Co-owner, Angela, who owns the store with her mother, explains that Teacher's Tools offers many specialty items or hard to find items that students need but other stores do not carry. In addition, parents drop off "whole school supply lists" and the store packages all the items for pick up.
There is also a large assortment of supplies for teachers because preparing for the school year is not only for children, but the faculty as well.
After hitting up Teacher's Tools, Bedford Stationery is located right down the block offering an assortment of paper, pens and notebooks, as well as printing, binding and laminating services.
