What is Back to School Season?
Back to school is a season that goes from late July into early September to prepare students for the upcoming school year. Many department stores, such as Target, Wal-Mart, and Kmart advertise back to school sales as a time when school supplies and children's and young adults' clothing goes on sale. This period of time usually lasts from mid-July through early September, before the school year starts in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. In Australia and New Zealand, this usually occurs in January.
