Back to School Shopping is Better in Marietta

Back to School Shopping is Better in Marietta

Summer is almost over. While this probably brings some sadness, it often also means a wardrobe update, a new backpack, or some nifty classroom supplies. Marietta is the perfect place to pick up any new school gear this year.

Show up in style

Don’t go to the big box store for your first day fit. Discover something unique in Marietta instead. Local shops and boutiques provide fashionable finds for people of all ages. Head to Rhinos and Rhinestonez in the square to find adorable outfits and accessories for your elementary student. Or if you are a trendy teen looking to make a good first impression, head to Sarah Liz Boutique or Square Threads to curate your own unique look.

Trim it or chop it

Pair your new outfit with a fresh cut to complete that back-to-school look. Marietta has plenty of salons and barbers that will have you looking ready for whatever the new semester will bring. Make an appointment at Lenny’s Hair Salon or Square Cuts and start your year with confidence.

Make it personal

Don’t get your lunchbox mixed up with someone else’s this year. Make it your own by printing, stitching, or stamping your monogram on your fun new finds. Local embroidery company, Sew Dreams Come True, will put almost anything on almost anything and can handle the smallest and largest of orders. Let them help you make your back-to-school gear your own.

Don’t forget the odds and ends

If your school shopping checklist includes a fun water bottle, a neat new notebook or a gift for your favorite teacher, Marietta has you covered. Find unique knickknacks and Marietta-made products at stores like The Local Exchange or Doodlebugz.

Make it fun

This much shopping will wear anyone down. Don’t forget to make fun stops while you’re out and about. Head over to Rocket Fizz to stock up for your next sugar rush or pay a visit to Eddie’s Trick Shop to find prank tools, costumes and oddities. Just don’t tell anyone you got the idea from us.
