Every Wednesday through Sept. 9, teachers, administrators and parents can save an extra 10% on general merchandise at Kroger stores.

“There’s always an exciting energy in our stores during the back-to-school season—and this year is no exception,” said Valerie Jabbar, Kroger’s group vice president of merchandising. “During these challenging and uncertain times, the enthusiasm for education that we’ve experienced from teachers, school administrators and parents alike has been uplifting.”

“We’re thrilled to offer this exclusive discount to teachers and ‘honorary teachers’ across our family of stores as a way to show our gratitude for all they’re doing for their students and our communities,” Jabbar said.
