CLEVELAND — Teachers in Northeast Ohio will have it a little easier when it comes to shopping for classroom essentials thanks to local retailer Meijer offering a 15% discount to teachers.

The teacher discount is now available at all Meijer stores through Sept. 28.

“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 items available for discount include a wide range of items such as notebooks, Elmer's Glue, crayons, Post-It notes, planner, journals, memo boards, backpacks like JanSport, Nike and Under Armour.

Teachers can stack their "mPerks" rewards with the 15% discount.

To get the discount, teachers can present their current school ID at their local Meijer customer service desk to receive a coupon. Teachers can get repeated discount by obtaining a new one any time they return to Meijer throughout the back-to-school season.

  • Mentor: 9200 Mentor Ave, Mentor, OH 44060
  • Mansfield: 1355 N Lexington-Springmill Road, Mansfield, OH 44906
