Educators to get 30% discount on classroom supplies August 8-21, 2013.

Ocean State Job Lot, a leading closeout retailer with 109 stores in New England and New York, announces its “Educator Partnership” savings program for teachers and educators throughout the Northeast.

From August 8 through August 21, 2013, teachers, educators, homeschoolers, school management, and support personnel who are authorized to make purchases on behalf of their school will receive a 30% discount on eligible school supplies. The program is available at all Job Lot stores in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and New York. Proof of employment such as a pay stub and ID is required upon checkout.

Eligible products include a wide variety of brand name stationery products and art supplies ranging from writing instruments, paints and crayons to poster board, staplers and paper – a total of 924 products in 75 different categories. “Job Lot’s Educator Partnership Program is meant to take some of the strain off educators by offering them a significant discount on high-quality classroom products,” states David Sarlitto, marketing director for Ocean State Job Lot. “We understand that teachers have been reaching into their own pockets for years to help supplement the school supplies available to their own students. With budgets smaller than ever, we are helping to address this issue by allowing them to purchase many supplies at 30% off our regular low prices. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ for their professional dedication and service.”
