student-min

A cool breeze is rolling through Philly and the summertime is officially coming to a close. September is here and Edgewater’s youngsters are getting ready for the new school year, some more excited than others. Back-to-school can be a stressful time for everyone and one of the trickiest parts is often making sure all our little pupils have the supplies they need to succeed.

We know how hectic the whole experience can be, so we put together a long list of all the best places to visit while checking off that infamous supply list from the teacher. Take advantage of this comprehensive guide so that you can stay relaxed and your children can stay focused on their academics.

 

Staples- This is an easy one-stop-shop for your child’s back to school supply list. With locations all over the Philadelphia area, it’s hard to beat this kind of “big box store” convenience.

(215) 864-9520

 

 

Omoi Zakka Shop- Want something a bit more unique for this school year? Do your kids like to show up in style? Omai Zakka Shop is a creative, Japanese- inspired boutique with a darling section for the 2017 “back to school” season. Their stuff is so adorable, you might just keep it for yourself.

W.B. Mason- It’s totally worth checking out Center City’s mega office supply store while on the hunt for school supplies. They are a long-standing favorite and have a little bit of everything.

Spectrum Scientifics- Located in cool and cozy Manayunk, this specialty shop offers supplies related to science.

Lakeshore Learning Store- Great for both school and teaching supplies, Lakeshore Learning Store is a bit further away than our usual recommendations. It’s definitely worth the drive if you are looking for creative ways to help your child learn outside the classroom.
