The words ‘Back To School’ may bring your thoughts straight to basic essentials such as stationery, uniforms, shoes, bags and lunchboxes but not at the Quedam Shopping Centre...
At Quedam Shopping Centre, think durability, flexibility, crease-proof, stylish, jam-packed bundles and multipacks at affordable prices that'll have (not just) the little ones ready to head Back To School, looking cooler than ever before.
Let's not forget that you might be waving your little one off to their first day of school. Whilst it'll be an emotional day for most, you'll feel calm after checking out the 'Roar-some Uniform' range in Marks and Spencer; a tougher breed of school wear, suitable for the tougher breed of kids: the wild ones! Whether they're creating, playing, exercising or expressing their personalities you can rest easy knowing that what they're wearing will have a fighting chance of surviving the full school year.
Maybe you're not-so-little-one has decided they're too cool to have you wave them off on their first day back? Now's the time to start looking at the hundreds of brands that you can find in JD Sports and USC Fashion so at least, when they're out the door, you know you've packed a whole lot of style in their bags.
With style comes quality and your go-to store for a wide selection of classic and modern school shoe designs should be, you guessed it, our very own family owned and family run Somerset business, Clarks. Renowned for their durability, this choice of footwear will impress the teachers and peers of students of all ages. Available in whole and half sizes, fitting in comfortably certainly won't be an issue this term.
Now that they look the part, let's make sure they can excel in the classroom with all the right equipment. For a one-stop stationery shop, you should be making your way into The Works. Discover bundles from just £5 that'll include pens, pencils, post-it notes, crayons, rulers, notepads and more. Add calculators, sketch books, scissors and revision cards to you basket so they're ready for every lesson.
They're not always heading back to school either, maybe you've got a teenager starting or returning to College. What can feel like a huge step and a daunting time can be made better by ensuring they're looking and feeling their best. A spot of lunch at Boswells Café, topped off by some retail therapy to update their wardrobe with this season's must-haves will not only give you some precious time together but leave them feeling confident and prepared for the new term.
I bet you're now thinking, 'they grow up so fast' and you'd certainly be right. Infants, Primary, Secondary, College and then they could be flying the nest to go to Uni. The time between finding out their College results and them being a Fresher will pass in the blink of an eye. Embrace the potential change by helping to kit out their new digs. Take advantage of free parking this Sunday and take a trip to Dunelm, Laura Ashley and Julian Charles for everything they'll need to create a home from home. Fill a basket with comfortable bedding, pretty picture frames, soft towels and all the home comforts that'll settle them into their new place.
