CHICAGO (August 16, 2021) – It’s that time of the year where teachers are creating lesson plans, students are heading back to class, and parents are busy filling shopping carts with back-to-school necessities. If you’re thinking of buying more school supplies this year than normal, you are certainly not alone. A 2021 Deloitte survey found that parents will spend $32.5 billion in 2021 on school supplies, a 16% increase from 2020. In addition, parents are expected to spend an average of $100 more per child, particularly when it comes to tech-based school resources.
In fact, tech accessories and back-to-school shopping are becoming more synonymous each year. The National Retail Federation found in a 2021 survey that families will spend the most ($13 billion) on electronics or tech items, followed closely by clothes and shoes. As more students are being equipped with the latest devices to assist in online learning or to simply stay in contact with parents, family and friends, UScellular can offer a variety of tech options to help your student be ready for the school year.
