Between novels and notebooks, tablets and trombones, Novato has all the right retail options to get your little ones ready for a new semester of school success.
To get your kid off to the best start, it’s important to put the right foot forward. If your kid needs new shoes for school, DSW, located in Novato’s Vintage Oaks Shopping Center is a good spot for back-to-school footwear. School outfitting doesn’t stop there, however, and Novato favorites like Marshalls, Old Navy, and Nordstrom Rack will keep your kid comfortable and fashionable. Should you prefer shopping online, Novato native Babalus by Lucy will keep your family chic with their assortment of fun printed leggings.
Is your child an artist? Novato is home to some fantastic art supply stores, whether they be at the easel or up onstage. Art Zorro in downtown Novato has a variety of supplies to keep your kid’s creativity flowing. Should you be raising a little ballerina, Marin Dancewear and Theatrical Supply is home to amazing deals on high end performance equipment to help your child soar into stardom. Musicians are taken care of, too, with Marin Music Center. Their outstanding collection of instruments and accessories will ensure your kid has a rockin’ good school year.
Schools are on the cutting edge of technology nowadays, so it’s important to stay ahead of the curve. Start by perusing all the tantalizing laptops and tablets available at Staples. For other tech related merchandise, Novato’s Target has state of the art headphones and speakers that will pump your kid up while they put the finishing touches on their homework.
Speaking of homework, your star student deserves a treat when those A’s start rolling in, and Five Little Monkeys is the place to go. Toys and gadgets galore make this store as exciting as can be, with dollhouses and drones available to entice the eyes of any pint-sized scholar.
Sports also begin with the semester, meaning new equipment is more important than ever. Buy your kid all new soccer gear at All Season Soccer. Should your sportstar be of a different variety, Sports Basement in Novato’s Vintage Oaks Shopping Center has anything a little athlete may need on their track to success.
And finally, what would school be without books? Novato’s own Copperfield’s Books has an abundance of favorites on their shelves, with thousands more available online. The Book Place on Grant Ave sells gently used books, CDs and more for prices that will have you smiling from ear to ear.
Whatever joys this school year holds for your little academic, know that Shop Local Novato wishes you and yours the best year yet!
