Back to school sales lure shoppers in Middlesex County
While school may not start for a few more weeks, some parents are taking advantage of early-bird back-to-school sales. Retailers like Wal-Mart are slashing prices on everything from glue and crayons to backpacks.
Pencils, paper, notebooks, folders: the list for back to school supplies can quickly add up. Multiply this by the number of subjects taken and parents quickly have an expensive equation.
To combat this many parents are planning their shopping now. For some the plan is to pick-up the basics now and fill-in the rest when school lists are handed out.
