Becker’s to continue business through catalog and web

Becker’s School Supplies announces retail store closings, refocusing business on catalog and website sales.

Retail store closing sales will begin at six Becker’s Parent / Teacher stores in Pennsylvania and Delaware on Friday, November 28. In time for the holiday season, just about every item in every department at all retail store closing locations will be reduced.

Teachers, parents and students will receive significant discounts of 20% to 40% off the lowest ticketed price on thousands of items including school supplies, classroom decorations, arts and crafts, puzzles, games, toys, easels, curriculum materials, workbooks and much more. Store fixtures, furniture and equipment at all closing retail stores will also be available for sale.

Becker’s School Supplies is currently in its 86th year of business. As a family-owned business, Becker’s values tradition but also embraces change when it makes us a stronger company. In a recent announcement, company president George Becker stated that the company has made a strategic move to close 6 of its 7 retail stores.

According to the president, “The hardest part of making this decision came down to the impact on both our employees as well as our customers. We are grateful to our store employees and management team for their dedication and hard work during many years of business. We want to thank our loyal customers and assure them that Becker’s as a company is here to stay. We look forward to serving customers through our sales representatives, customer service center, and catalog and at for many years to come.”

A spokesman for Hilco Merchant Resources, which has been engaged to manage the retail store closing sales stated: “This event will offer a very extensive merchandise assortment at truly compelling price reductions. It’s a great opportunity for consumers to take advantage of major savings in time for holiday gift-giving, and to stock up for future needs. Everyone is encouraged to shop early for the best selection.”
