School Specialty is Focused on Back to School!

School Specialty is focused on helping you stock up for back-to-school! Restock your classrooms and your supply closets with an exclusive Summer Sale event & 3M for less!  

The Summer Sale provides deeper discounts on the items you need to restock and get ready for back-to-school. Because these items are NET priced, our standard 35% discount does not apply. (Net price is a better deal.) There are savings to be had in all categories!  This flyer provides more details and a sampling of the available products.

In addition to the Summer Sale, School Specialty is featuring 3M products this month. Check out the selection of the 3M products available to you here.

ALL purchases made online throughout the calendar year (via School Specialty or AEA Purchasing Marketplace) receive a 1% rebate directly back to the customer next year.

Happy saving!
