It’s back-to-school season across the country. Teachers in New Jersey spend close to $500 per year out of their own pockets on school supplies, and nine out of 10 educators will not be reimbursed for their back-to-school purchases, whether it’s pens, pencils, markers, notebooks, poster boards, or décor for the classroom. If you’re a teacher, don’t worry, many national and local retailers are here to help, offering discounts as a thank you for all you do.
Now is the time to treat yourself to a new first day of school look or join a yoga studio to keep calm all year long. Note, to qualify for a teacher, faculty, or school staff discount, most stores ask to see a valid teacher ID, so make sure to bring it along. Keep reading for a list of businesses in Hoboken + Jersey City that give teachers, faculty, and staff back-to-school discounts.
