Get Back to School Ready with Gordmans

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Here is Indiana school is getting ready to start any day now for many students. I know - it is crazy early! But this year Back-To-School shopping is different than in the past for me. Cohen will be attending his first year of preschool so now I have double the fun things to make sure I purchase before he gets ready to venture into his school year. Plus Sophie will be entering her first year in junior high. (I know, I'm thinking it too "Oh no. Junior High!") With another little one on the way, I was on a mission to find a store that offered everything I was looking for as well as quality products with affordable prices. This past weekend after we helped my sister and brother in law move into their house, we were driving home and passed Gordmans. This store was huge - so I had to stop! 

My husband, Sophie, Cohen and I headed in and were greeted by friendly associates willing to help us with any of our Back-to-School shopping needs. Gordmans was set up in easy to navigate sections so I knew exactly where to look for the things I needed. I made a beeline to the toddler boys section while my husband, Sophie and Cohen decided to check out the toys and shoes. As I shopped for Cohen, I noticed a little section between the children's clothing area with kid friendly videos and seating called "Gordmans Giggles." Soon Cohen had joined me and was loving his shopping time at Gordmans! It was the perfect spot to entertain the kiddos while you shopped in the area! But I was even more pleasantly surprised by the clothing selection and brand names for Cohen - familiar names like Carters and Puma. Plus the prices were amazing and ones that you really couldn't beat at any other store in the area. I had fun choosing a few outfits for Cohen and he loved being able to pick his favorite shirts too, even if every choice was the color orange but more importantly he was having fun and not getting into toddler trouble!

Sophie is now officially in the teen section yet her middle school has a stricter than usual dress code. So as I headed over there, I was greeted with an amazing selection for her as well! We found some great clothes and had a blast trying them on. I kept finding her more and more things to try on while she was in the dressing room. Sophie was starting to become more comfortable and excited about the idea of middle school while I was getting more excited with the prices we were finding. Double win for our Back to School shopping experience!


After a pit stop in the toys again for Cohen and a looksie for Kurtis in the men's section, my husband and I got sidetracked by the home goods department. Hey now, the parents need to enjoy their own Back to School shopping as well! We found a super cute porch swing and a great cabinet for our hallway at nearly half the price! I was amazed at the choices of wall art and other accent pieces of furniture and decor that Gordmans had to offer. The products were ones you would find a various name brand stores and the quality is what you would expect when shopping from those stores too. I can't wait to have my sister watch Cohen so Kurtis and I can go and find those final finishing touches we have been looking for to complete our new home.


At checkout I was introduced to Gordman's loyalty program. The gRewards program lets you earn a point for every dollar you spend. It's not a credit card but a simple rewards card! Once you earn 200 points you will get a $10 reward. Plus the program offers a variety of perks including a 10% birthday discount off of your entire purchase. Beginning August 15ht you'll be able to sign up online. But if you can't wait until then be sure to ask your associate when checking out to get signed up for the gRewards program!
