Stress-free way to get ready for school
WITH decades of experience in getting ready to go back to school a South Burnett business offers a stress free shop for parents.
Murgon News and Toyland caters for all items needed for schools in the South Burnett area at competitive prices.
Owner Tracy Robinson said the business, which included Robinson's News and Gifts in Kingaroy and Wondai Newsagency, would mark 45 years this March.
"We've been doing this for a long time, so we know what we are doing,” she said.
The store offers a free school list service where they pack the products into boxes ready for school.
"We can make your back to school stress free as we can pick and pack your orders for mums and dads to collect at their convenience,” Mrs Robinson said.
Parents can even choose what sorts of products go into the school packs.
"Some people like to have the top things on their list, they don't want the basic, we cater for whatever the parents want and we pick and pack the rest,” she said.
The business stocks the text books needed on the lists for South Burnett schools in the Kingaroy and Murgon stores.
They also offer a great selection of book coverings for families to avoid the stress of contacting books.
"We've got book jackets or book covers in all designs for boys and girls to suit all ages,” she said.
There are plenty of great specials to help out with the cost of sending students back to school.
"We've got a great catalogue that's out at the moment with all the specials, not only for back to school but for uni and work too,” she said.
Parents can buy a pack of four UHU glue sticks for $6.95.
"These are some of the best specials you'll get all year,” Mrs Robinson said.
The back to school sale will finish on Saturday February 2 to cater to any last minute buys.
"Parents still have specials that run through if you've got anything that's last minute,” she said.
The stores are open seven days a week and parents are encouraged to get their shopping done early.
"Don't leave it to the last minute, even though we are stocked,” Mrs Robinson said.
"We try and cater between our three stores to look after the parents.”
The business looks forward to assisting families with their school supplies.
