New Walmart-style discount school supply offers $99,000 to kids in Georgia

A Walmart-like discount school supplies store in Georgia offers $50,000 worth of school supplies to children for the price of a single home.

Gwinett County Schools officials say the discount is to help families with school-age children pay for home care and other costs.

“I think it’s a great way to help our kids get prepared for the school year,” said Gwinett school board member J.D. “John” Kocher.

It’s a big savings for students and families.

Kocher said a typical school day typically lasts eight hours.

The company has a warehouse in Georgia that will provide the supplies for the store.

The company is currently in the process of opening a second warehouse in South Carolina.
