With the start of the school season weeks away, some Toronto teachers may be walking into their classroom sporting a tan or driving there with a new set of wheels.
Office product retailer Staples Canada recently announced its annual Teacher Appreciation Event, wherein educators can get as much as 25 percent off on their in-store purchases. But they may also win something while they're shopping for pens, pads and pencils, as the company will award a select number of instructors with a Caribbean vacation for four or a 2012 Toyota Prius.
"We hope teachers are as excited as we are at Staples Canada about the upcoming Teacher Appreciation campaign," said Rick Atkinson, vice president of marketing for Staples Canada. "This initiative is one of our signature programs, and we think the combination of great savings and great prizes will help teachers start the new school year the right way."
Teachers can sign up for the grand giveaway online. While there, teachers may also want to look into getting themselves some portable storage containers to house their classroom supplies, which Jiffy Self Storage also offers.
