Meijer has announced that it is offering a 15 percent discount on classroom essentials to teachers.
The teacher discount applies to all Meijer stores and extends now through Sept. 28.
Meijer's store in Kenosha is located at 7701 Green Bay Road.
“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.”
According to National Center of Education Statistics, 94 percent of public-school teachers say they spend their own money on notebooks, pens and other supplies without reimbursement. Other experts estimate the average teacher spends more than $500 out of their pockets each year.
Teachers can get the discount by presenting a current school ID at the customer service desk to receive a coupon. The coupon can only be used for purchases made in-store and some restrictions apply. Teachers can take advantage of the coupon repeatedly, but must obtain a new coupon each time.
