Back-To-School Shopping Tips

  • Back to school shopping is starting early this year. Be sure to come soon to take advantage of sales.
  • Arrive at the property early to avoid crowds and find a prime parking spot.
  • Make lists of specific things for each child before you get there to streamline the process.
  • Visit the property on a week day in the afternoon, that’s when you’ll find the smallest crowd.
  • If you’re buying a backpack for your child, use that to help carry items you’ve just purchased.
  • Save heavy purchases for last so you don’t have to carry them around.
