MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. If you see lots of families walking around the Mt. Kisco Target holding long lists and looking a tad frazzled, dont be worried. It just means that back to school shopping has started once again.
Alyson OReilly took the trip to Target to get school supplies for two of her kids, Abby, 8, and Jack, 6.
Despite not knowing who their teachers would be until August 17, OReilly was able to get a head start on the shopping thanks to a list put out by grade by the school
You dont know what to get until the school puts out the list, she said.
Most of the items are standard- pencils, crayons and notebooks, but the item Jack was most excited about buying was headphones for when he has to be on a computer at school.
The OReillys who are from Somers, had to decide if taking the trip to Mt. Kisco was worth it for back to school shopping.
I thought, should we go to Staples or Kmart and then I was like no, OReilly said. Target is one stop shopping. It has everything.
With two children and a baby, Gwen, OReilly knows that doing one massive shopping trip that gets everything is out of the question.
Were just getting supplies today, OReilly said. Well have to come back for shoes and clothes and all that.
The Target located at 195 N Bedford Road is one of the only Targets in Northern Westchester .
