Staples non 137 Ave you guys rock!
Back to school shopping. I hate it. Backpacks and clothes, I don’t mind. It’s the crowds and the stores running out of things (I kid you not Walmart ran out of pencils one year. Yes, pencils) and the cost. I can’t stand it. In past years I have opted to have my child’s school supplies purchased through the tools for school or other programs the school offers. Then at the end of the year, unused supplies get sent home so I’d acquired a lot of unused supplies so I didn’t want to go that route and spend for a whole kit wen we only needed about half.
So I mentally prepared myself for shopping in basically a zoo for supplies but I got to the Staples on 137 Ave and was quite impressed with it! The store was very clean, and the staff very helpful. Especially Jorge… He helped me find things, showed me which would get more bang for my buck and then when they didn’t have an item out, he went to check their inventory and upon learning that their store had none, he came back and said “I did call a couple other stores for you” and then he proceeded to tell me exactly what it would look like and which stores had it.
It was actually an awesome shopping experience where I wasn’t overwhelmed or bitchy so big thanks to Staples!
