All those pencils, “Pee-Chees” and crayons really add up. This is the busiest time of year for shopping; second only to the Christmas retail season. Julia Anderson is a former Business Editor for the Columbian Newspaper in Vancouver. She shares some insight into how big this retail season truly is: “You know it’s number two right after the holiday season; it’s a huge piece of the economy in terms of retailers, when people are shopping for school they are buying everything from lunchboxes to backpacks and clothing and if you add it all up its $7.4 billion nationwide." She also says the census bureau reports that 77 million people nationwide are in school. That's everyone from pre-school to law school and all those students in between.
