WESTON (WAOW) -
When it's hot outside, it's hard
to think ahead to the school year, but supplies have hit store
shelves once again.
For some, it may be too early to think
about school supply shopping, but others say they're already checking items
off their list.
"I got the bag right there for my
pencils and pens," said Ethan Goree as he looked through
supplies at Target in Weston. He's getting ready to go back to
"Different color highlighters,
dividers for a 3-ring binder, a pack of loose leaf paper, a pack of
post-it notes, two black or blue packs of pens," Goree said as he read his
supply list out loud.
And the list goes on.
Target managers say they're ready for
students just like Ethan.
"We started to get this set last
week and we've actually seen some people come in today with their
back to school lists so we are set and ready to go," said Target
Manager Melissa Innis.
Target employees say their best sellers
tend to be the character items, like a Monsters Inc. book cover or a
"Those seem to sell out the
quickest," said Innis.
Jenny Longdo and her son say their list
is almost complete.
"We usually do a big stock up, and
that last throughout the whole year. Whatever is left over, that just
carries over into the next year," said Longdo.
While back to school shopping may be a
day children dread, it's a day Longdo says she counts down to.
"I am so ready for them to go back
to school actually," said Longdo.
Target managers say their aisles will
only get busier.
"We will start to see it pick up
usually the first week in August, the second and third week are
typically very busy for us here as well," said Innis.
So whether you're an early shopper or
wait until the last minute, store managers say they'll be ready.
Many students will be packing up their
backpacks and getting on the school bus again early September.
