Education Express and More!

Friends~ When a little kid visits a toy store there is a certain amount of magic and hope that the child feels.  For teachers, this same feeling comes when they enter an education store.  The shelves are filled with learning products that will transform their classrooms into a world of wonder and fun.  That is the exact feeling I get every time I step into the Education Express at Concord Mills Mall in NC.  

Check out some of their goodies below!  The best part is, the store is a family run business and I had the pleasure of meeting 2 of the owners Bonnie and Morgan.  They are true southern sweeties and totally know their teacher stuff!



When I talked to Morgan and Bonnie they gave me the background scoop on their stores and their successes.  Read more below:


For over 13 years, Education Express has been providing educational
solutions to parents, teachers, schools, daycares, and churches.  As a

family-owned business, we recognize the importance of hospitality and
constantly seek ways to make every customer feel at home in the
comfort of our care / welcomed and appreciated.  We understand that
with evolving policies in education, customers may have questions and
concerns about what resources are available to them regarding best
practice.  Our friendly, savvy, and sophisticated sales professionals
specialize in the current educational resources, including items
needed for the Common Core, from companies such as Mailbox,
Carson-Dellosa, EduPress, and Steck Vaughn.

(I love that when I go into Education Express there are tons of teachers there working behind the counters to help me find just the right items for my classroom!)

In addition to the vast amount of educational resources, we have a
wide variety of unique puzzles, games, and toys that can encourage
stronger family-centered evenings, as well as the critical thought for
an individual.  No matter if it’s the interest of a child or the young
at heart, we offer our laughter and skills while we demonstrate the
use of various games.

(The store is just not for teachers, it is for anyone that wants to support children in learning.  If you are looking for summer learning activities or birthday gifts-Education Express is the place to look.)

We have three convenient locations in Concord and Winston-Salem, North
Carolina, as well as Gaffney, South Carolina.  For customers who enjoy
