With only few weeks to go, parents and students start to swarm the malls and other stores for cheaper school things such as bags, notebooks, pens and uniform. However, as a businessman – teacher, this is an occasion for other entrepreneurs to increase substantially their products and services. Thus, the Department of Trade and Industry suggest retail prices for basic school things. This will guide parents of average prices on their students’ needs and avoid stores that overkill their prices.
However, parents are also forewarn of substandard quality of cheaper school stuffs. Common sense and experience say that not all bargains are big savings.
As a parent, I can only be smarter.
