LOS ANGELES - Target’s Teacher Prep Event is offering teachers a week-long, 15 percent discount from July 13 to 20 as a part of their “Kids’ Back to School” promotion. 

The discount covers school supplies, classroom storage and organization, food storage bags, disinfecting wipes, facial tissue and hand sanitizer. Teachers are also eligible to receive a 15 percent discount on women’s and men’s apparel, accessories and shoes, as well as Bulleye’s Playground products and Pillowfort furniture. 

This is the second year that the Minneapolis-based retailer is offering the teacher discount.

“I’m excited we’re bringing the event back again this year with an expanded assortment of items eligible for the 15 percent discount, helping teachers save and get what they need for the upcoming school year,” Jill Sando, an executive at Target, told USA Today, adding that there was a “phenomenal response” during the inaugural event last year.
