Lidl have launched their back to school range today, including shirts, trousers and jumpers for a combined €7.
TV presenter and radio broadcaster, Kathryn Thomas launched the range nationwide.
Included in the range are boys’ and girls’ Smart Start Sweatshirts (€1.49), Kids School Shirts (€3.49), Trousers (€2.00), adding up to a €7 uniform, while Polo Shirts (€2.00) are also available.
Kathryn Thomas, mother to daughter Ellie and Grace, said: “As a child, I loved the nervous excitement that came with back-to-school time, reconnecting with friends, new classrooms, new lunchboxes, the smell of the new pencil cases. It’s hard to believe I’m getting Ellie ready for her first day at school.
“As a parent, it’s an emotional time but can also be pretty expensive too. That’s why Lidl’s affordable back to school range is the best one-stop-shop. Uniforms, copy books, pencil cases, lunchboxes; everything we need to keep me and her happy for a fraction of the cost you’d pay elsewhere,” Ms Thomas said.
Lidl’s affordable Smart Start back to school range hit stores nationwide yesterday, and is offering a selection of stationery and lunchtime essentials too, from backpacks (€6.99), colouring pencils (€2.49), drawing pads (€1.99), School Paint Boxes (€3.49), Whiteboards (€8.99) to Compass sets (€2.99) and much, much more.
A survey conducted by Lidl in January found 78pc of parents say that uniforms are the most important items on their shopping list when kids are returning to school. While price is seen to be the most important when shopping for stationary (71pc), more than four out of five parents claim that quality is the most important factor for uniforms.
