With back-to-school shopping season upon us, Fashion Valley is sharing its top five quick tips for making the most of your back-to-school shopping day!
1. Prepare a list of must-haves
Making a game plan ahead of your trip can save time and frustration. Write down a list of the essential items you need (jeans, shoes, backpacks, etc.) and set boundaries with your child/children on needs vs. wants, as well as budget. Check out the mall’s website at www.shopfashionvalley.com for deals to help you plan ahead and stretch your dollar during back-to-school sales.
2. Get your shopping done in one location
One of the conveniences of shopping at Fashion Valley is that you can get your shopping done in one location – no need to drive from store to store, hunting for parking. All the stores you’re looking for are right here!
3. Start your shopping day early
Starting your shopping day in the morning may help you avoid the crowds and get as much crossed off your list in one day as possible. Start with the essentials and then leave the afternoon for accessories that make your back to school threads pop. Getting your shopping started in the summer can help you nab great deals with summer savings on basics, which you can also use to layer for fall fashion.
4. Take a break in between and get refreshed
Back-to-school shopping can be a long day, which is why it’s important to take a break and grab a meal at some of Fashion Valley's great dining destinations, like True Food Kitchen, STACKED or The Cheescake Factory. Once your tummies are full, you’ll feel recharged for what’s next on your list.
5. Celebrate your haul
Once you’ve crossed off your back-to-school shopping list, it’s important to reward your children (and yourself) for a job well done. End the day with a family night out at the movies right here at the AMC Theatres at Fashion Valley, or have some play time in Geppetto's Play Area. It will help you unwind and create fond family memories with your kids.
