Meijer is expanding its back-to-school teacher discount program.
Teachers who shop for school supplies between now and Sept. 28 can get 15 percent off. Meijer offered a similar program last year, but is starting earlier this year and increased the discount from 10 percent.
“We know that teachers shouldn’t have to chase sales, especially during their vacation time. So this allows them to shop when they want, take advantage of our sales and even stack mPerks on top,” said Joe Hirschmugl, spokesman for Meijer.
Teachers who want to take advantage of the discount can take a school ID to Meijer and show the service desk for a coupon. More than 80,000 teachers in the Midwest are expected to take advantage of the deals on more than 300 items including notebooks, Crayola items, Elmer’s glue, Sharpies, Post-It-Notes, planners, memo boards and backpacks.
There is not limit to how many time a teacher can get a coupon.
“We recognize that teachers spend a lot of money out of their own pockets on school supplies, and we hope this offer will help,” said Brandon Pasch, director of back-to-school merchandising for Meijer. “Everyone deserves to enjoy their summers to the fullest, so our ‘all-summer-long’ offer was designed to allow teachers to save whenever is most convenient, and as many times as they like.”
