Yup, still have a Pareton.

We’re getting a ton of crappy back to school supplies again. Possibly a hold over from some business set up when that CEO from Staples was in charge before he was fired.

I hate this stuff. A bookstore shouldn’t be a back to school supply store. We sell the books for back to school. We sell the Steinbecks and the Austens and Dickens. I get the attempt at trying to get a little bit of that sweet, sweet add on sale. It helps make the sales numbers look better.

But no one shops for that stuff at The Bookstore, this stuff will inevitably go to clearance like it did last year, and even then it’s still over priced compared to all the back to school clearance stuff found at Target, Staples, Office Max… Hopefully after this we would have any more of it…
