Site Review: School.com

Share

Site URL: School.com     

Content:  This site is an online shop operated by office-supply giant Office Depot. The difference here is that everything is organized and tailored specifically to meet the needs of a K-12 educator.

The site offers many teacher-specific rewards programs; the “Star Teacher” and “5% Back to School” programs are just two.

The retailer pays special attention to items and their organization on the site, resulting in a supply store of choice for teachers.

Design:  Various product categories appear across the top of the page, accompanied by a more specific navigation along the left side.

A nice feature is the main content area. Rather than splash limited-time sales or “featured” products, the bulk of the page presents teacher-specific programs that offer schools some type of savings or reward.

Apart from the various programs, the site operates pretty much like every other major retailer’s online store.

Review: An excellent resource for stocking your classroom, School.com knows its audience and effectively caters to it. Offering incentives seals the deal.

Bottom Line: Teacher-specific products and good site organization, combined with incentive programs, make for a solid online store.
