Back to School WHSmith 2018

What you need to know about WHSmith

WHSmith was originally founded in 1792 as a newsagent in London. Today the retailer stocks a far wider range of products including books, stationery, confectionery and entertainment products as well as magazines and newspapers. Branches of the store can be found on high streets, in railway stations, at motorway service stations, and at airports. When you travel in the UK, you’re very likely to see a WHSmith store at the transport hubs you pass through. If there isn’t a branch near you, you can also shop online at the WHSmith website.

Back to School at WHSmith

WHSmith stocks a great range of useful Back to School products at reasonable prices. You’ll find every kind of stationery for school as well as bags and books including school textbooks and revision guides. The products are conveniently arranged on the special Back to School webpage. During the Back to School season, WHSmith usually offers some amazing discounts across all its school products. In 2017 the retailer ran a half price sale on back to school items, so customers could pick up all their school kit at a massive 50% discount. The sale included books and revision guides, calculators and art supplies. There was also a 3 for 2 discount on selected product ranges, so for products that you’ll need again in the future, it can be cheaper to buy in bulk. Deals were available online as well as in stores. We expect a similar promotion to be announced this year so if you shop during the sale you will be able to pick up all your school essentials at a lower price.
