What's Your Opinion

Compiled by Bill O’Neill

QUESTION: Many businesses have been gearing up for the back-to-school season earlier in the summer. Do you think it’s too soon for parents and kids to get ready for school time- and when should stores start pushing back-toschool shopping?



“No, I don’t think it’s too soon. It’s never too soon to get school supplies – to make sure they have what they need. Probably start sometime in August.” –Terrae Coit, Canarsie “No, I don’t think it’s too soon. It’s never too soon to get school supplies – to make sure they have what they need.

“I have a son. Might as well line up the supplies early. Education is the most important thing. My parents did it for me.” –Lai-Bak, Canarsie “I have a son. Might as well line up the supplies early. Education is the most important thing. My parents did it for me.” –Lai-Bak, Canarsie

“First of all, I don’t think it’s too soon. The first of August you should be out there shopping – because a lot of people are going to be out there shopping later in the month.” –Maria Guina, Canarsie “First of all, I don’t think it’s too soon.

“They should be shopping now or even sooner. Get the supplies, what’s on sale. It’s very important. I have two kids.” –Harold Moran, Canarsie “They should be shopping now or even sooner. Get the supplies, what’s on sale. It’s very important. I have two kids.” –Harold Moran, Canarsie
