CINCINNATI — How's this for extra credit?

Teachers, school administrators and parents can save an extra 10% on back-to-school supplies and more at Kroger each Wednesday from now through Sept. 9, the grocery chain announced.

Savings apply to general merchandise, including school and craft supplies, toys, games, sporting goods, housewares, apparel and electronics.

"There's always an exciting energy in our stores during the back-to-school season—and this year is no exception," said Valerie Jabbar, Kroger's group vice president of merchandising, in a news release. "During these challenging and uncertain times, the enthusiasm for education that we've experienced from teachers, school administrators and parents alike has been uplifting."

To receive the "Teachers and Honorary Teachers" discount on "Extra Credit Wednesdays," customers can shop in-store or via Kroger Pickup using their shopper's card and simply request the discount at checkout on Wednesdays through Sept. 9.

"We're thrilled to offer this exclusive discount to teachers and 'honorary teachers' across our family of stores as a way to show our gratitude for all they're doing for their students and our communities," Jabbar said.
