The summer’s winding down, and the first day of school is just around the corner. That means parents all over the neighbourhood are swinging into action to make sure our kids are geared up for class. Luckily, we don’t have to travel far — Yonge & Eglinton’s got everything we need.
Backpacks to Goalie Masks
So what does your child’s shopping list look like? For all their tech needs, you can always check out Best Buy at 2400 Yonge, just north of Broadway. Then be sure to grab any athletic gear they need for the upcoming season at the Sporting Life a block north, at the corner of Yonge and Roselawn. Whether it’s hockey pads or basketball sneakers they’re after, you can cover your bases there.
Looking Sharp and Chilling Out
When we’re on the hunt for the latest in middle-school fashion, we usually take a quick trip to the Gap at 2630 Yonge for their back-to-school line-up. After all, picture day is no joke. And if your child’s a gamer, there’s no better place to pick up a reward for their next “A” than Gamerama at 2470 Yonge, just north of Erskine — but make sure they’re done their homework before you take them.
Don’t Forget Their Smile
Of course, one of the best back-to-school accessories your child can have is healthy teeth. Book an appointment with your dentist today , and we’ll be happy to help them get ready for the year with a check-up, a cleaning or anything else they need.
