Meijer is offering teachers a 15 percent discount on classroom essentials for the back to school season.

The discount applies to all Meijer stores and extends throughout summer until Sept. 28.

"We recognize that our teachers are faced with many uncertainties as they head into the 2020 school year, so our goal is to help them shop with confidence anytime they are comfortable," said Brandon Pasch, Director of Back-to-School Merchandising for Meijer, in a press release. "We know that flexibility is more important than ever and we hope that our annual summer-long 15 percent discount helps reduce their stress as they gather supplies for their classrooms and home offices."

The retailer expects more than 80,000 teachers across the Midwest will take advantage of the discount.

Items available for the discount range from spiral notebooks and schoolroom essentials like Crayola, Elmer's Glue, Sharpies and Post-It Notes to planners and journals, and memo boards.

Teachers can get the discount, in the form of a paper coupon, by presenting a current school ID at their local Meijer Customer Service desk. The coupon can only be used for purchases made in-store and some restrictions apply. Teachers can take advantage of the coupon repeatedly by obtaining a new one any time they return to Meijer throughout the back-to-school shopping season.
