Cool 4 School: Back to School Shopping Guide + Giveaway


The back to school season is upon us, and we know how busy this season can be. From looking for school supplies, finding the latest fashion, to picking up the latest tech, shopping for back to school is a process. We created this resource to guide you in getting the right gear and set the stage for an awesome year!

South Edmonton Common is your one-stop shop for back to school prep. We have everything that you need all in one place, and we’re sure that your back to school shopping day will be a great one! Especially if you start your day with a stop at Starbucks to help keep you caffeinated during your back to school shopping day!

Not sure where to begin? Take a look at our list that includes a few of our favourite ways to get back into the school year!


One of our favourite parts of the back to school season is when we get to go back to school clothes shopping and once you’re in the Fashion District, the options are endless! Step into Gap Factory to get you stocked up on basics and everyday favourites and H&M for some stylish, affordable outfits for the whole family. Stay on trend with the latest designer pieces from Nordstrom Rack, and don’t forget to stock up on indoor and outdoor shoes! You’ll find amazing deals at Puma and Vans Outlet.


Getting a new hairdo for the first day of school is stress-free at Cobia Salon! They have tons of talented stylists who can give everyone in your family fresh new looks!


Looking for a new laptop? How about a durable case for your tablet? Best Buy and London Drugs are experts when it comes to your complete tech needs and accessories and you’ll also find some serious deals for everyone in the family.


Staples and Walmart have everything you need for back to school supplies – pens, markers, binders, backpacks, erasers, highlights, you name it. We’re sure everything else that you need on your list will get crossed off after your visit!
