EVEN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS LOVE THEIR CARTOON-THEMED SCHOOL SUPPLIES, ACCORDING TO WALGREENS BACK-TO-SCHOOL SURVEY

As summer comes to a close, many parents are feverishly completing to-do’s before sending their children off to start another school year

When do children grow out of cartoons? A Walgreens back-to-school survey of parents with school-age children shows a significant number are fans well into high school.

With themed school supplies once again a trend, cartoon character-themed supplies are desired by 22 percent of high school students, according to the survey. Pop singer themed supplies are most popular among middle school students at 43 percent.

When it comes to pain points for parents who do back-to-school shopping, the Walgreens survey found the following were top dislikes:

    1.     Out-of-stock items – 35 percent
2. Crowded aisles – 23 percent
3. Checkout lines – 18 percent
4. Searching for products – 15 percent
5. Impatient children – 8 percent

“With thousands of back-to-school items available at our more than 8,000 stores, many of which are just around the corner, Walgreens has a great variety of in-stock supplies that will meet parents’ and children’s needs alike,” said Bryan Pugh, vice president of merchandising, store design and Well Experience at Walgreens. “During stressful times like this, we want to make our customers’ shopping experiences as quick and convenient as possible.”
