5 Ways to Save on Back-to-School Shopping, Bronx, New York

The new school year is almost upon us, which means it’s about time to check out the new fashions at The Mall at Bay Plaza in the Bronx. To avoid a shock to the bank account and still get everything you need for your child’s new school year, follow these great tips.

5 Creative Ways To Save While You Shop


1. Check The Website Before Heading Out

The back-to-school season is a prime time to get great deals on young adult and children’s clothing, so check the sales online before hopping in the car! All sales and upcoming deals at the mall are posted ahead of time on their website. From department stores to restaurants, weekly and single-day sales are posted online, making it easy to plan your trip around specific sales.

2. Utilize Your Cell Phone

The Mall at Bay Plaza has a free WiFi for guests, and it’s a great place to find deals while you’re in the midst of a shopping trip. Simply log on with your smartphone and see if there are any flash sales or weekly deals going on in the clothing stores right around you. The mall’s website updates as sales change, so come prepared to find the best deals.

3. Have A Plan & Set A Budget

The biggest problem with shopping at the mall is wanting everything you see. But if you want to save money while getting everything you need, make a plan before getting to the shopping center and stick to it. It might even be a good idea to bring as much cash as you’re planning on spending, only breaking out the plastic for emergencies.

4. Visit The Department Stores 


shoppingDepartment stores are great places to find deals since they buy and sell their items in mass quantities. The Mall at Bay Plaza has several excellent department stores, which are great locations to save money while shopping. With a high volume of merchandise, a department store always has a deal on something. You can save even more if you have a credit card with the store. 

5. Refuel When You’re Feeling Tired

Make a point to take a break and get off your feet when you’re feeling worn out. The Mall at Bay Plaza has a wide range of restaurants and food options at your disposal. Stop at Bay Plaza Java to add some zip to your step, Nathan’s for something quick, or enjoy a more relaxing meal at Outback Steakhouse
