As summer comes to a close and the first day of school approaches, it’s time to get back to school ready. Novato has plenty of retailers eager to help our student residents get prepared with school year essentials.
Arguably the best part about back to school shopping is picking out a new backpack. Target in Novato’s Vintage Oaks has a killer selection of styles along with alternative options like roller backpacks and crossbody bags.
After you’ve picked the backpack, the next step is to fill it with fresh supplies and Staples has some great deals on all the school year essentials. With journals, binders, pens, pencils, highlighters and more, it’s a great place for one-stop shopping.
