Back to School Shopping at Cascade Village
Back to school season has set in and that means it’s time to prepare for a new year ahead. New classrooms, new teachers, and possibly even new schools mean a chance for children of all ages to start over. The new academic year invites students to work harder, to join new clubs, to play new sports, and perhaps best of all, to reinvent themselves.
Thankfully, whether you’re searching for school supplies, a new outfit, or even a new hairdo, Cascade Village is a one-stop-shop for all your back to school needs. Here are a few ways to get ready for the school season:
Stock up on Back to School Supplies
Preschool to college students will never stop needing pencils, erasers, and calculators. Bed Bath & Beyond or Best Buy will have everything you need to stock up on the essentials and extras like locker or dorm decor. Check out your school’s website to learn more about which school supplies are required for each grade.
Replenish Your Electronics
Electronics have become an essential part of the classroom. Many middle schools, high schools, and colleges now require students to turn assignments in via email, check grades using online portals, and register for classes online. Having a laptop and even a printer can make a huge difference when it comes to turning assignments in on time. Stop by Best Buy for all of your back to school electronic needs, or head to AT&T or Sprint to get cell phones and tablets.
Get Your Sporting Goods
If your child plays a sport, you may need a variety of sporting goods. Soccer players might need cleats, soccer balls, shin guards, socks, shorts, and shirts; basketball players might need basketballs and gym wear; and volleyball players might need a volleyball, kneepads, elbow pads, and an assortment of shorts and tank tops. No matter your sporting needs, Dick’s Sporting Goods has everything you need.
Stock up on Dorm Supplies
Freshman year of college means a lot of change. It’s the first time many students will ever be away from home, and that means they need to create one of their own. Even though they might be sharing space with a roommate, dorm furnishings are still a big deal. You’ll need extra-long twin sheets, bedding to match, basic kitchen supplies, and maybe even a microwave oven or a mini-fridge if your child’s school allows them. No matter the case, Bed Bath & Beyond has long been the go-to for college back to school shopping.
Stock the Fridge
Back to school season is more than just the return of school. It also marks the return of the after-school snack. Go to Trader Joe’s to stock up on sandwich essentials, crackers, chips, cheese, and guacamole so you have your after school snacks all ready to go!
Refresh Your Wardrobe
JC Penney, Ross, and Dick’s Sporting Goods have everything your student needs to put together a whole new look. Whether they want to go for a more classic style, be a little more preppy, or opt for a sporty aesthetic, Cascade Village has your student covered.
Try on New Glasses
It’s pretty important to be able to see the whiteboard (or the projector screen). Schedule an eye exam at Visionworks so you can get your lenses and glasses in time for the school season.
Get a New Haircut
Last but not least, never underestimate what a good haircut can do. Swing by Regis Salon so your student can get a fresh cut or color that will help them make their mark on the first day of school.
