With school starting back up for many families, it's crunch time to check all the boxes in the school supplies list.

Sarah Rupert says she shops around for her school supplies but enjoys shopping at Meijer for the mPerks.

However, she's not a big fan of the ever growing list of school supplies.

"I think they're a little increased over the years. 7th grade I know you have one list for the pencils, the pens, the markers, but then they also have a different art supply list so you're buying kind of double if they take art classes," said Rupert.

Meijer and many other grocery stores now offer immunization shots for students before they head back to school as well.

"We're seeing a lot of the seventh graders. They need their tetanus vaccine and they're meningitis and so we've been offering those immunizations," said Denise Wells, Meijer Pharmacist.

Meijer also offers a home delivery service for many common back-to-school supplies, you can sign up here.
