Back to School Season - Why are we talking about that now????

School uniforms are a customized business and require lots of planning in order to have the proper apparel in the store by the time the shoppers arrive for back to school season . At Educational Outfitters, we have to start planning for the next school year in the fall prior. We place our orders and start producing embroidered goods so that we are ready for the summer's back to school season. The manufacturers need time to make the plaids and special items that are non-stock apparel.

Educational Outfitters starts our sales in May so that we can stagger our customers out throughout the summer. For the biggest savings, we recommend you shop between May 20th - May 31st (20% off!). Keep your tags on your apparel and we are happy to exchange it if your kids grow over the summer. Also, watch our sales in the Spring for some fantastic deals! It's never too early to shop, just leave those tags on!

We recommend you join our email list, which can be done on our website! You won't miss out on any special sales!
