Lakeshore Learning Store Is A Teachers And Parents Best Resource For Fun Learning

   There is a new store open in Albuquerque, New Mexico that is a great place for parents and teachers to buy educational materials. Lakeshore Learning Store had it's grand opening on Thursday October 2nd. Located at 6646 Indian School Road N.E., the new 5,150 square foot store will be the company's 60th location and the first in New Mexico. This store offers a great selection of unique toys, games and other educational materials for parents and teachers to encourage learning through play.

    Lakeshore Learning Store has been providing educational supplies for 60 years. I have a friend who is a retired teacher and when I told her about Lakeshore Learning, she told me she fondly remembers buying her supplies through the mail with them. My son even told me his teacher buys online with Lakeshore Learning and that she could not wait to check out the new store.

I was invited to their grand opening and my boys were thrilled to check out the store with me. I was impressed at the items that the sold and the prices were awesome too. My boys had a great time playing with learning toys in the store. I loved that most all of their items were on display so you could try it out before you buy.

They even had a computer set up so children can try out the software games before you purchase. They had a big selection of educational software too.

Check out the great price on color paper. They even have a laminating machine at $.39 a square foot to get all your laminating projects done.

I was impressed at the selection of boarders and other classroom decorations that they carry. Lakeshore Learning Store has just about everything a teacher needs to set up their classroom. Parents will love all the learning toys and games that they carry. This is a family friendly store that and every Saturday they have free crafts for kids. On Saturday October 18th, the store will be hosting a nationwide event in celebration of Jumpstart's Read For The Record- a national campaign celebrating early literacy.

My boys loved the goody bag that I received for attending the grand opening.  Now you no longer have to buy online when it comes to great learning materials.
