Back to school shopping with Cookie’s Kids

Just in case you didn’t know it’s almost time to head back to school or your kids are already back in school. Either way kids are going to need new clothes whether they’re regular street clothes or uniforms.

Back to school shopping is not one of my favorite things to do especially with three girls who have definite opinions about what they like and what they don’t like. Honestly, if they just wore school uniforms I’d be all set but since they don’t we’ve been to the stores a few times checking out all the new kids styles & new fashions for the fall and winter season.

With the internet and online shopping things are a lot easier! This year I went to Cookie’s Kids and meandered through their website at all the cute clothes they have and was wondering how I could get all the things I wanted without breaking the bank.

One of the things that I love about online shopping is the chat support that so many companies are starting to use. It’s great… I can ask any question I have and get an answer right away. It’s just like having a sales associate there without being pushy!

 And I had questions to ask…. a couple of them as a matter of fact. But the problem is that the chat support was never on and I came back more than once to check. So I proceeded with my order sort of blindly and hoped that what I was buying would work.

They had everything from uniforms, kids clothes, shoes, and the thing I was most happy to see… suits for little boys! We have a wedding coming up this fall and my son is going to need something to wear! I will be going back for sure to check them out more.

I love these shoes! And I ordered them for my son in the 9 toddler size thinking he wears an 8 right now and by time fall/winter rolls around these will probably fit him. Boy.. was I wrong! He won’t be wearing these for a couple years! He loves them though!

Since Andrew isn’t heading to school I made sure that I got a few things for his sister. It seems that every time I turn around that girl has grown!

Lauren & her awesome sweater

When I gave Lauren her sweater she immediately had to try it on and then went on and on about all the different things that she can wear with it! She had two or three outfits planned out around the sweater.

Of course being the practical mom I am I had to find a jacket that she could wear this fall because the one from last year is way to small.

She loved it! I was really happy about that because I picked the jacket out without her input!

Ordering and checking out at #CookiesKids was just as easy as it was with any other site and the best part of it all was that my order qualified for a free $25 gift card! Score! Cute clothes for the kids and dinner for mom and dad!

Want to know more about Cookie’s Kids?

In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.

As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.

By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
