The school year is more than half-way over and I only just discovered that my daughter's school does indeed have a school store. I wish I had known this sooner -- it would have saved me several late night trips to the drug store for school supplies.
I admit I never asked my child if the school had a store, and I never saw the mention of one on the school website or in eblasts. Still, it would have been worth my time to check it out before now. The upside: I've learned my lesson and from now on I'll make sure my child has a few extra dollars in her backpack for those last minute and much needed school supplies.
