Back to school for continuing learners and Form One entry is just two week or less away. Parents and Guardian have started going round looking for best deals on school requirements in order to send children to school and at the same time save enough for their families. In this article, I show parents, especially those leaving in Nairobi where to get all their back to school and form one needs at the lowest possible prices and good discounts.
For text books, you'll need to visit Charles Rubia Road, formally Cross Road and specifically the area between Accra Road and Kumasi Road leading to Nyamakima. Along Cross Road, you'll find a number of Bookshops dealing with authentic new textbooks and selling them at good discounts and even on wholesale depending on the quantity you will need as a parent or a guardian.
For Stationery, you'll still go to Cross Road, but from where bookshops are, you'll cross Accra Road then walk as if heading to Globe Roundabout. Actually, cross Road is the main Road between River Road and Kirinyaga Road. Along that area, you'll find a number of stationery shops selling exercise books, pens, pencils, calculators and all other stationery requirements on wholesale.

In these places, you'll definitely find good and durable school bags and suit cases at very affordable prices.
Metallic boxes are usually one of the most basic requirements of students reporting to form one, though nowadays some schools prefer suit cases.
