Back to School, a term that we love as parents and that my kids love too. Don’t get me wrong, we love summer vacation, but we love the excitement of Back to School…new clothes, new school supplies, new shoes, new backpack, activities starting again. Back to School feels like the birth of a new year and it is, a new school year.
We mark tradition of our new school year with a new height mark on the wall with the grade marked beside it. We also take a picture the first day of school and the last day of school in the front garden.
Of course before that mark on the wall and that picture can be taken, there is a ton of shopping to be done.
As a kid, I loved Back to School shopping. I loved all the new stuff, whether it was crayons or shirts. As a Mom, I still love the excitement of getting the new clothes and supplies. The size larger in clothes for my Little One makes me realize, she is growing up. The school supplies, marks her learning, growing and developing as a little person. I get that happy/sad feeling where you are proud of your Little One that is growing up, but sad at the same time because your Little One is growing up!
Let’s face it though, it isn’t always fun and games when we set off shopping with our kids! There can be demands for the “cool,” “in,” and “name brand” products. There is also dealing with the “I want this” attitude versus the “I need” reality. The pressures on the family budget and pocket book can be overwhelming at times.
As a mom, I want to purchase clothes that my kids will actually where. There is nothing more frustrating than new clothes sitting in a closet and never being wore. So what I need is style the kids will love at a price that I can afford. Where did we turn to for Back to School shopping this year? Sears Canada was the answer for us.
What I love about Sears Canada is their KidVantage.
Lifetime Wear Out Warranty
The Lifetime Wear Out Warranty covers children’s apparel and footwear as long as a child in the family continues to wear the size. If the item wears out, Sears will, at its option, either repair it or replace it with the identical item in the same size, or if it’s unavailable, a similar item of equal value in the same size. It covers children’s apparel sizes from infants up to 18, and footwear up to senior kids’ size 6 . Proof of purchase required. The KidVantage® Wear Out Warranty does not apply to hosiery, underwear or any item sold at any Sears Outlet store or on the Outlet site at sears.ca
The Price Match Guarantee
Sears will not be undersold on any children’s apparel, footwear or nursery furniture and juvenile products. We will match a competitor’s advertised price on identical items within 30 days of purchase, or 90 days on purchases made with your Sears FinancialTM Credit Card.
Price Match requests cannot be made at time of ordering; requests must be made in person. Bring in the local Canadian competitor’s current print advertisement showing a lower price for the identical national-brand item, and your original Sears sales receipt, to the nearest Sears catalogue location. Canadian website prices as offered by comparable competitors will be honoured when accompanied by a printout of the current website advertisement. If your request qualifies, you will be refunded the difference in price. For C.O.D. orders (where accepted), cash will be refunded or a cheque will be mailed to your home address; for account purchases the refund will be handled by a credit to the account used (credit may appear on the next statement that follows the statement showing the item purchase).
My Little One was so excited with her Back to School Shopping at Sears Canada because they had all her favorite characters. My Little One loves The Bubble Guppies, Barbie, Sophia The First, and of course Hello Kitty. My Little One loved trying the clothes on feeling oh so pretty in her new stuff. I loved the prices and savings for character items.
