About School-Pak

School-Pak began in August of 1991, when Terri Schulist went shopping for school supplies for her fifth grade son. She watched as a mother and a little girl got into a heated discussion over a hard to find purple notebook.

Terri went home thinking there had to be a better way for parents and kids to spend the last days of summer. The more she thought about it, the more sense it made: a shopping service that would match exactly what the teachers’ list required.

Starting with 8 schools in 1991, School-Pak has grown to be recognized as a major leader in the school supply industry, earning prestigious awards such as “Best Timesaver for Parents” by Milwaukee Magazine and “Best Overall Value” by The Wall Street Journal and MSNBC.

While their sons have now grown, Terri and her husband, Gene, still retain that strong dedication to provide the highest quality products and convenience at reasonable prices. Today, our level of excellence continues nationwide.

Our Mission

We've always believed that Q+S=P, where Q=Quality, S=Service and P=Price

The only way to reduce prices is to change our standards of Quality and Service.
