Mark’s for Back to School

The bitter sweet start of the school season is finally here. As much as we love having the kids around all summer the thought of back to school routine is welcomed. I will miss the last minute plans but welcome the structure of a schedule. The kids will miss sleeping in but love seeing their friends daily. We will still have nights and weekends but it is hard not to have mixed feelings about this time of year.  For many families this is a busy time as well. We hit the mall yesterday and realized we were not the only ones who stayed home to grab a few last minute things for the new school year. The mall was packed and the deals were huge. But it was pretty exhausting!

I had my teen boys with me and they had very specific needs. I needed to find them both jeans they could wear that would stand up to their active lifestyle. These boys are hard on their clothes and quality matters, I have no problem spending a bit extra knowing their clothes will last. They are both very tall and thin so they need to try on anything we buy before hand.

We headed to Mark’s and quickly found a few pairs my boys wanted to look at closer.

If you have not shopped at Mark’s lately, Mark’s has more than uniforms and work-wear. They have clothes for casual living and a huge variety of sizes for both men and women.

With added promotions and great sales Mark’s is always a must stop for back to school clothes for the teens. I often pick something up for myself while there as well!

With so many denim options I was a bit overwhelmed. But the boys both knew exactly what styles they wanted and what colours.  All we had to do was find the right size. Luckily one of the store employees saw our struggle and gave us a hand. With their arms full, the boys headed to the change rooms to try them on.


The Levis 541 Athletic Fit jeans were a fave for them both. They fit nicely around the waste and legs, with the length tall boys need. The washed out look was something else they were happy about.


Right now for back to school all jeans are BOGO 50% off. That is buy one get one 50% off plus buy 2 pairs and get bonus scene points. I personally can never pass up a deal and love getting bonus offers when possible.

Thanks to Mark’s we were able to pick up the last few things on our shopping list without the crazy crowds of the mall. If you still have things you need to get, especially for your teens, head on over to Mark’s and check them out. You can also shop online at
