The retail giant is aiming to simplify the back-to-school rush by connecting with schools and teachers to provide shoppable summary lists of supplies kids will need

Back to school shopping can be confusing, time-consuming and chaotic, with parents scanning through the aisles trying to find the right products for their kid’s new class. Target is looking to make that process easier by allowing teachers to upload school supply lists to their website through its School List Assist program.

Once the list is uploaded, parents need only find the appropriate school and grade, then simply load all the items into their shopping cart. From there, they can choose to have everything shipped directly to their home or pick it up at their closest Target store. Parents can also add other options to their cart if they’re looking to buy multiple items or want variants of any particular good.

While the initiative aims to simplify back to school shopping for kids and parents alike, it also helps the retailer better stock and supply its customers with what they will actually need, connecting with the schools and teachers themselves to discover what is in demand.
