So today there was an announcement that the BC teacher’s strike will potentially be over with class possibility starting next week for students. With this news a lot of parents admitted to now starting to shop for school supplies for their children. For the most part all the regular back to school savings are over at this point and if you are trying to find deals you will have to hope that companies have a good weekly sale for the items you need.
While it would have been wiser to shop beforehand hand, I would say if you are looking for deals one of the best ways to do it is to look for company sales like an anniversary event. In those cases, usually stores have a load of items on sale and things such has stationary are usually on that list. I know Walmart is having an anniversary sale this week for example which will probably offer some discounted school related items.
I still think online would probably be the best value way to shop, but if this is really last minute then a tradition retail store will probably be the most efficient.
