Hundreds of Tallahassee teachers could be found shopping for school supplies Saturday at the Staples stores in Tallahassee.
Staples was hosting a teacher appreciation day. The stores treated local educators to refreshments while they shopped. They also gave them gift bags filled with supplies and coupons.
“You always want to be prepared the first day. You want to be ready. Just like anyone would prepare for their job and have on the right suit and the right things in their briefcase, you want to be prepared for the first day of school," said Renee Ereckson, a third grade teacher at Holy Comforter Episcopal School.
Teachers were also able to preview the latest educational products and learn about Staples' Recycle for Education program.
