Back-to-school shopping deals still available

“We are in crunch time now— two days away. I took the day off work and hope to get everything done,” said Leigh Topp of Carlisle, shopping with her son, Kalen, 10, and hunting for some last minute deals at Kohl’s.

She’s not the only parent who has put off shopping for back-to-school.

Eighty-seven percent of U.S. parents say they have yet to check off everything on the school supplies and clothes list this year, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation.

Perhaps even more surprising— 22 percent of parents haven’t even begun to shop at all, the survey found.

“I think it just came up really fast and people were trying to get their vacations in and that sort of thing,” said Centerville Kohl’s manager Brandy Duran, adding that she hasn’t seen as many people shopping.

Procrastinators will still find plenty of back-to-school sales.
