Lakeshore is bucking the trend with the opening of two new physical retail stores in Davie, Florida, and Nashville, Tennessee.

The leading developer and retailer of educational products for kids, teachers, and families will have a total of 62 stores nationwide following the opening of the Nashville store this spring. The store in Davie is now open, marking the company’s third location in the Sunshine State. Lakeshore will celebrate the openings by donating a total of $25,000 to fund classroom projects in Nashville and Davie through DonorsChoose.

“[The new stores] give us a real chance to help make teachers’ and parents’ lives just a little easier,” says Bo Kaplan, Lakeshore’s president and CEO. “After all, they’re the ones doing the most important work. We’re just grateful to offer them the learning materials and support they deserve.”

The Lakeshore Learning Stores in Davie and Nashville include a range of features to aid in serving their local communities, including the company’s first-ever Teacher Workspace locations. The workspaces include self-service stations for laminating and photo printing along with free tools for binding and label making. The stores also include a Flex-Space Furniture Showcase in which students and teachers are welcome to try out new products that are designed to meet the needs of modern classrooms, such as wobble cushions and balance balls.

Lakeshore offers convenient shopping options including reserve online, pick up in store, and a free-to-join loyalty club for 15% daily savings on hundreds of items.

The stores also include hands-on learning stations for kids to explore; a regular schedule of #LearnWithLakeshore special events; and Free Crafts for Kids every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
