Ready for Class? A Busy Parent’s Guide to Back-to-Campus Shopping!

Summer has a way of flying by, and before you know it, it will be time for the fall semester to start! If you’re sending your no-longer-little one to college this fall, chances are you need to fit some back-to-school shopping into your busy schedule. 

Whether your student is returning or walking onto campus for the first time, Hamrick’s has the dorm and school essentials to keep them comfortable and organized — without breaking your back-to-school budget! (And if the special student in your life is not college-aged yet, keep reading — we offer plenty of clothing, accessories, and supplies to make them cool for school, too!)

Dorm Room Must-Haves

Even though it’s hard to see them leave, we know you want to make their home away from home comfortable and enjoyable. To help, we’ve got incredible prices on items like: 

  • Mattress toppers
  • Sheets and bedding (including extra-long twin size)
  • Pillows – comfy and decorative!
  • Cozy throw blankets
  • Flags and decor to personalize their space
  • Fluffy towels and washcloths
  • Shower caddies for trips to the good ol’ community bathroom

You can find many of these items in our new online store or, as always, visit your local Hamrick’s to pick them up in person!

Wardrobe Upgrades

Help your student step into class — and game days! — in style. 

Stock Up On the Basics

Hamrick’s has classic and essential clothing items every student needs, like: 

  • Stylish jeans for any occasion
  • T-shirts for warm fall days and layering
  • Cozy sweaters for cool fall nights
  • Flip-flops to wear in the shower 
  • Sleepwear (which, let’s face it, they may occasionally wear to class!)
  • Athletic wear for chilly intramural sports and trips to the gym

And while you’re shopping, don’t forget hangers to maximize the limited dorm room closet space! 

Game-Day Apparel

Help your student show some school spirit with game-day apparel and gear! We’ve got stylish fan apparel for some of the most beloved teams in the Southeast, like 

the Volunteers, Bulldogs, Gamecocks, and more.*

You can find the latest trends in fan apparel from great brands in The Boutique at Hamrick’s and our new online store

Getting Ready for Class

A new term calls for fresh school supplies! Set up the student you love for success and organization with essentials like: 

  • Stationery 
  • Agendas 
  • Notebooks
  • Folders
  • Desk supplies

Beyond these class essentials, there are a lot of other supplies to stock up on before a new school year begins. To help keep our shoppers organized and make sure nothing gets left behind, save and print our Back to School Checklist below for easy, stress-free shopping!
