Meijer extending 15 percent teacher discount for entire 2021-2022 school year

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (CBS 58) -- Meijer announced Thursday, Nov. 4, it will extend its 15 percent discount to teachers for classroom essentials for the entire 2021-2022 school year. 

According to, the average teacher spent an estimated $750 of their own money on school supplies while 30 percent of teachers spent $1,000 or more. Additionally, 95 percent of teachers said their classroom supply budget will not be enough to meet their students’ needs this year.

“We understand the need for teachers to restock the essentials is especially great as they return to classroom learning and face the potential changes this year may bring,” said May Graceffa, Director of Back-to-School Merchandising for Meijer. “Our goal is to help teachers in communities across the Midwest shop with confidence whenever they need to refill supplies.”

The extension of the annual discount Meijer offers teachers is significant following a year when they spent more than ever before, according to a news release from the Midwest retailer. 

The extended discount offers savings on school and home office supplies – like paper, pencils, folders and notebooks – as well as craft supplies and hand sanitizer. 

Teachers receive the discount in the form of a paper coupon whenever they present their current school ID at the Customer Service desk at all Meijer stores across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

The coupon can only be used for purchases made in-store and some restrictions apply. Teachers can take advantage of the coupon repeatedly by obtaining a new one on each new shopping trip.
