Holiday Gift Guide 2013

Holiday Gift Guide 2013

In the past we have done a very successful countdown of gifts from our store starting on Black Friday through mid-December. However, this year we wanted to do something different and give you more.

The retail geniuses in our store have put together a gift guide that includes everything from posters to mugs to games to even giant pencils. We’ll be adding to the guide throughout the holidays based on what comes in and what sells out. There’s even a 10% off coupon in the guide! Simply follow the link, click on “Claim 10% off.” All you have to do is print the page or bring it in on your phone. Have friends or family that would love 10% in the store? Share it with them.

The last day to shop the store before Hanukkah and Thanksgiving is Wednesday, November 27. The last day to shop before Christmas is Sunday, December 22.

Three little words that alone don’t cause a whole lot of emotion, but put them together and the response is usually either panic or elation. Many of the local school districts started their 180 days of reading, writing and arithmetic this week. Local universities such as the University of Akron start the fall semester on Monday, August 26. Whether you’re catching the big yellow bus or the Roo Express, the Museum Store has some inspiring supplies to make your classes a little more fun.

It’s big. It’s yellow. And it’s a working pencil. The lead writes, the eraser erases and it’s perfectly surreal for when you want to make your desk look tiny.
