There can be a ton of pencils, paper and notebooks being sold.

It’s that way for most office supply stores.”.

Strategies for school buying

School supplies may not be the only thing on your list for that weekend. Shopping may be better at stores with more than just school supplies like clothing or sporting good stores. Remember, less driving means less gasoline consumed. Before leaving, check newspaper and online ads for sales, and do some comparison purchasing. Don’t wait when you know the item will sell fast. Perhaps most importantly, have patience. Stores are all going to be very busy.
