GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – With students back to classroom learning for the new school year, Meijer is making it a little easier for teachers who need to refill supplies for their classrooms and home offices out of their own pocket throughout the fall and winter.
The Midwest retailer is extending its 15% discount on classroom essentials for the entire 2021-22 school year.
The extension of the annual discount Meijer offers teachers is significant following a year when they spent more than ever before. According to AdoptAClassroom.org, the average teacher spent an estimated $750 of their own money on school supplies while 30% of teachers spent $1,000 or more. Additionally, 95% of teachers said their classroom supply budget will not be enough to meet their students’ needs this year.
The extended discount offers savings on school and home office supplies as well as craft supplies and hand sanitizer. Other items available for the discount range from schoolroom essentials like Crayola, Elmer’s Glue, Sharpies and Post-It Notes to planners, journals and memo boards. Teachers can also stack their mPerks Rewards with the 15% discount.
Teachers receive the discount in the form of a paper coupon whenever they present their current school ID at the customer service desk at all Meijer stores across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin. 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 on each new shopping trip.
