A new study from the retailer reveals that nine out 10 parents rate safety measures as a deciding factor when choosing a brick-and-mortar retailer to shop their lists of school supplies.
Meijer stores have added their back-to-school selection online, so kids can still be part of the experience, whether going to a store of not. The retailer is also offering teachers an online coupon through its mPerks program. They can receive $10 off their order and get free Meijer Delivery or Pickup with the offer code for one online shopping trip through Sept. 6.
"While price is always an important factor in shopping decisions, there are definitely 'new normals' when it comes to how customers are checking items off their lists for the upcoming school year," said Brandon Pasch, director of Back-to-School Merchandising for Meijer. "We are seeing more customers mention the efforts we make regarding safety as they focus on the items most necessary as potential learning plans are determined by schools."
