Meijer offering teachers back-to-school shopping discount

As back-to-school season approaches, Meijer is looking to burden some of the financial load for teachers.

The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer will be offering a 15% discount to teachers on classroom essentials from now until Sept. 28.

“We recognize that our teachers are faced with many uncertainties as they head into the 2020 school year, so our goal is to help them shop with confidence anytime they are comfortable,” Brandon Pasch, director of back-to-school merchandising for Meijer said. “We know that flexibility is more important than ever and we hope that our annual summer-long 15 percent discount helps reduce their stress as they gather supplies for their classrooms and home offices.”

Items available for the discount range from spiral notebooks to Crayola products, as well as Elmer’s Glue, Sharpies, Post-It Notes, planners, journals and memo boards.

In order to receive the discount in the form of a paper coupon, teachers must present a current school ID at the Meijer customer service desk.

Teachers can take advantage of the coupon repeatedly by obtaining a new one any time they return to Meijer throughout the back-to-school shopping season, the company said.
