Back to School Shopping Surprise from Staples CEO, Shira Goodman!

Back to school shopping can be a bit old hat for most of us. It’s the same thing every year. You get a list. You marvel over how long one list can be for one child. You then begin looking for deals on everything on said list. That’s the experience¬†in a nutshell. This year, Staples CEO, Shira Goodman, made the entire back to school supply scavenger hunt a far less hum drum experience for some lucky shoppers.

Back to School Shopping Shock for Parents

Mrs. Goodman recently visited a Staples store in Westboroough, Massachusetts, where she chatted with more than two dozen parents and children about the upcoming school year, getting both the adult and child take on the impending school year and what it meant to them. Afterwards, she surprised them even more with Staples gift cards to make back to school shopping easy peasy for the year.

In addition to her Shira’s chat with parents and kids at the local Staples. There’s also another great video to get a different look at back to school shopping. The Staples Senior Vice President of Merchandising, Liz Haesler, did a little unscientific market research with a room full of kids – who are quite adorable – and showed them a few of the great school supplies from Staples. At the end, she surprised them by allowing them to take whatever they wanted with them. Take a look!
