Prepare to head back to school!

It’s August, and you know what that means? The summer holidays are in full swing and it’s time to start getting prepared for the new term that’s now just a few short weeks away. Whether your little one is starting big school for the first time, or they are returning and have outgrown, well, everything! – Aintree Shopping Park has everything you need to ensure your child is top of the class. 

Of course, your first stop has to be for the new school uniform so head over to M&S or Next to kit your kids out from head to toe. Light, cool and super-comfy, M&S school uniforms are cleverly designed to last longer and stay cleaner, whilst Next are built with style, quality, and practicality in mind. Both stores offer tried and trusted school uniforms, meaning kids will enjoy work and play from registration until home time. Oh, and don’t forget their range of stylish bags and backpacks! There is also a free click & collect service at both retailers to make life even easier. Within Next you’ll also find Paperchase, perfect for stocking up on a great selection of quirky and inspiring designer stationery.  

Then just a short walk away, Hobbycraft has everything you need for a new term or new project, from high-quality pens, pencils and more for writing and drawing, to pencil cases, notebooks and essentials to help your little ones stay organised.  

And lastly, for the inevitable coughs, colds, sniffles and sneezes – get to Boots and stock up on vitamins, minerals, plasters and accessories, as you never know when you’ll need them! 

Luckily, the summer holidays aren’t over quite yet. Enjoy some quality time in between shopping and grab a bite to eat together, we have Nandos, M&S Café,  McDonalds, Greggs and Costa here, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
