MyMalls staffers are very aware our customers are enjoying a much needed summer break filled with adventures together with their loved ones. We understand it takes a lot of creativity in order to make this happen in 2021 as the pandemic is far from over. Before we know it, the new school year will be upon us. However, for those of us who have kids in school or are pursuing a higher education, the thought of the first day of school is one filled with aspiration. The new school year usually means new teachers, new classes and the hope of an amazing year ahead.
Focussing on getting good grades and thinking about future career options is definitely the goal. But on the practical side of things, making sure you or your kids stock up on fresh notebooks, pencils and binders is very much part of the deal. The mere thought of this is both exciting and daunting. All those school supplies, electronics and new clothes, tend to add up quickly and can do a number on your bank account. Unless, that is, you can get all you need during tax-free weekend.
