Teacher Appreciation Event: Office Depot, Saturday 8/3

Office Depot #3277
Teacher Appreciation Event
Saturday, August 3, 2013*
2559 Via Campo, Montebello

I've attended this event a few times and Office Depot usually has a tote bag with some freebies and continental breakfast available to the first group of teachers that arrive. Special pricing and discounts are available the day of the event. Teachers are encouraged to register in Office Depot's MyStarTeacher program prior to the event.

*The flyer does not have the time, but the store opens at 9am, so I expect the Teacher Appreciation Event starts at 9am.
