Meijer is offering an extra hand to teachers gearing up for the upcoming school year.

From now through Sep. 28, Meijer is offering a 15% discount to teachers for classroom essentials at all stores, the company announced Thursday.

Teachers can obtain the discount by presenting a current school ID to the customer service desk at their local Meijer store and receive a coupon, which can be used for in-store purchases.

Items available for the discount include spiral notebooks, planners, journals, memo boards, certain backpacks and other essentials like Crayola, Elmer’s Glue, Sharpies and Post-It Notes.

“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.”

The discount can be used more than once by obtaining a new coupon anytime they return to the store. Some restrictions apply.

Teachers with mPerks Rewards can also stack them with the discount for a range of items.
