Teacher Shopping begins August 13, 2014
Dear MNPS Teachers,
Thank you for your patience as we have been going through some major changes here at the Box. And wow, do we have some exciting things in store for you!
THE STAFF!! We have a new Box Manager, Kerry Conley. She is very passionate about serving teachers and students and has been working extra hard all summer to get the Box in tip-top shape for your shopping pleasure this fall.
THE STORE!! Dedicated volunteers have done a lot of cleaning and sorting and have made tons of space in our storerooms so we can stock even more of the items you really need for your students -- like NEW paper, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks and folders. And to make your shopping experience more pleasant, we cleaned, rearranged and added new signage. Even more exciting, we are working to automate our check-out process to make the whole experience more efficient.
If you would like to “plan your trip” you can download a copy of our STORE MAP and our updated TEACHER SHOPPING FORM. please note: we make every effort to keep all items in stock but we cannot guarantee we will have all items on your visit.
THE HOURS!! The store will be open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 3–6 p.m. on Aug. 13-15, Aug. 20-22, and Aug. 27-29. Also, the store will be open on two Saturdays, Aug. 16 and Aug. 23, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. (NOTE: If a date is grayed out, that means there are no remaining shopping slots.) We are working to stay open more regularly throughout the school year, so we’ll keep you posted about these opportunities as we get them finalized.
All of these changes, coupled with our new focus on stocking NEW supplies, mean that we can’t open before school starts on August 6, and we are sad about this. But we strongly believe that this new focus will make it all worthwhile and we hope, after you come shopping, that you will agree with us.
Questions? Contact Kerry Conley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 974-0438.
See you at the Box!
