Lakeshore® Store Grand Opening in the Cleveland Area
Local Community Invited to Festivities in Beachwood, October 14–16
CARSON, Calif.—(October 12, 2011)—Lakeshore Learning Materials is celebrating the grand opening of their new Lakeshore Learning Store in Beachwood, Ohio, this coming weekend. A nationally recognized developer and manufacturer of educational materials for the school and home, Lakeshore now has 55 stores nationwide.
This three-day event will include free games, product demonstrations and giveaways. Plus, like all Lakeshore Learning Stores, the new store in Beachwood will have free crafts for kids every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
A teacher favorite for over 55 years, Lakeshore’s growing chain of stores reaches beyond the classroom and into the community at large—offering educational resources for parents, too.
“With growing class sizes and shrinking budgets, teachers are being asked to do more and more for their students,” said Bo Kaplan, president and CEO of Lakeshore. “We’ve found that parents are looking for ways to assist teachers by reinforcing classroom instruction at home.”
Parents don’t have to feel intimidated about helping children with their schoolwork, because Lakeshore’s materials are incredibly easy to use. “You don’t have to be a teacher to use our products,” Kaplan said. “Most of our materials are ready to use right out of the box—with no prep time involved. We’ve worked for many, many years to make teachers’ lives easier, and now we’re doing the same thing for parents.” Plus, the materials are all designed to make learning fun—so children love them just as much as their parents do.
In Beachwood, Lakeshore has already received a warm welcome from teachers and parents. “We are incredibly excited to be part of the Beachwood community,” Kaplan said. “We received many customer requests to open a learning store in the Cleveland area, and we are really thankful for the opportunity to be here.”
Lakeshore’s product line ranges from blocks, craft supplies, activity books, learning games and puzzles to educational software for home computers and interactive whiteboards. Specializing in standards-based materials for language, math and science, Lakeshore Learning Store in Beachwood has all of these products and more.
Lakeshore Learning Store is at 27500 Chagrin Blvd., Beachwood, OH 44122. The grand opening event will be going on Friday through Sunday, October 14–16. Click here for hours and directions.
