As parents, we all know just how stressful the dreaded Back to School shopping can be. Sometimes shopping with the children with us, trying to remember the endless amount of uniform and stationery they need for their first day back at school and if you leave it too late the shops have sold out of the sizes you need then panic really does set in. This year I decided to try shopping for the uniform I needed in my local Tesco supermarket as I have always been impressed with the quality of the F&F clothes I had purchased for myself.
I visited my local Tesco store this week and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of good quality school uniform I could pick up at a fantastic price. I was also able to get everything else I needed on my back to school shopping list from packed lunch bags, backpacks to the full selection of stationery my son needs for high school. Never before have I been able to go into one store and pick up absolutely everything to kit my son out for back to school and so much cheaper than I had budgeted for, so I was one happy Mum!
Back to School Shopping all under one roof
As a mum of two boys and one been at secondary school, I sometimes struggle to find high-quality clothes for teenagers without paying men’s prices, I was amazed with the selection of uniform available in larger sizes to fit our teenagers without the need to shop in adult stores. Moving schools is an expensive task in Itself without having to replace uniform on a regular basis as it is not high quality. I know from experience that a high-quality school uniform helps the child’s transition from primary to secondary school, making them look and feel smart and adhering to the school uniform rules. After all the specialist school uniform you have to buy for secondary school you don’t normally have much money spare to buy the rest of the uniform and that’s where F&F at Tesco come in. They have some new technology in their uniform this year from amazing reinforced knees to As new technology in their jumpers. As I previously worked as a teaching assistant in a primary school and as a mum myself, the amount of children falling whilst running around the playground and tearing a hole in their knees of their new school trousers was an everyday occurrence.
