Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer Meijer has announced year-round savings of 15% on school and home office equipment for teachers, including from private brands. The chain is also extending savings for a limited time to include additional categories, like children's apparel and shoes, through Sept. 5.
"Knowing just how much the average teacher spent on their classroom alone last year, without considering everything else that goes into preparing for the new school year, we hope this discount makes a big difference," said May Graceffa, Director of School, Home, Office and Toys Merchandising for Meijer. "We also recognize that, for many teachers, their classroom budget and their family budget are one in the same, so we're excited to continue offering extra savings for them on categories that will make a difference across their budget."
Continuing from Sept. 6 through the end of this school year, Meijer will offer a 15% coupon on school supplies and home office products like folders, notebooks and more. Teachers can get the discount, in the form of a paper coupon, by presenting a current school ID at their local Meijer Customer Service desk.
The coupon can only be used for purchases made in-store and some restrictions apply. Teachers can take advantage of the coupon repeatedly by obtaining a new one any time they return to Meijer.
"As a one-stop shop, we're happy to bring that extra level of convenience for teachers and parents to be able to pick up everything they need as part of their weekly grocery trip," Graceffa added.
Meijer operates 262 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
