It's always smart to shop early for an upcoming event, and people usually regret not doing so. From marketplaces to the biggest of malls, it sure is a busy end of May as the back-to-school season approaches. Fret not as the National Book Store (NBS) organizes the Grand Back to School Fair, happening from 10 am to 9 pm on May 24 to 26 at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center, Palm Drive in Makati City.
For many students, the onset of back-to-school season signals the chance to have a fresh start. It's a door to improving one's studying process (and one's self along the way), with the help of studying instruments.
Being a reliable institution in the school supplies department, NBS conveniently gathers everything you need for a new school year in this fair—at discounted prices, on top of that! The "Grand Back to School Fair" has backpacks as low as 100php, lunch bags at 75php, and many more steals.
Because the fair has overcrowding tendencies, NBS sees to it that shoppers have an option for shopping with ease. Save time and energy with the Grab & Go packs and get huge savings with the Budget Bundles. Whether you or your kids are in elementary, high school, or college, you can tick off your school supplies checklist at this weekend event.
More than just a fair for shopping, shoppers can also provide for underprivileged children who, despite the insufficiencies, are (very) much willing to learn at school. For a good 30php, you can donate one "Project Aral" kit, which includes two notebooks, two pencils, an eraser, and a sharpener. Throw in 30php more and you'll be giving a child a pair of slippers.
Keep your eyes peeled on the stage for an exciting lineup of workshops, live demos, games, and raffles conducted by the NBS and participating brands. Admission is free at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center, but you can also visit any NBS branches nationwide and look for the "Back to School" Zone. And as always, shop consciously!
