Get Back to School with Tabletop Media Group

The end of August means back to school and we have some tips for surviving the transition from the pool to the books. From "Dinners Done Easy" to back to school shopping, our clients have everything you need to prepare for the new school year!

Crabtree Valley Mall
Back to school means back to school shopping, and Crabtree Valley Mall is the perfect one stop shop for kids of all ages! From shoe stores like Vans or Zumiez to clothes at American Eagle or Gap, Crabtree Valley Mall has everything you could possibly need. Afterwards, #dineCrabtree and get a bite to eat at Kanki for a fun Hibachi experience or HWY 55 for a quick burger and fries.

University Place
Live in the Chapel Hill area? If you’re looking for a place to get your little ones back to school clothes, University Place is our recommendation. Glee Kids is a children’s boutique, serving children from infants to ten years of age. Each brand that Glee Kids carries is selected with love and care, ensuring that your child is wearing the best! Once you find new clothes, pop over to Burlington Shoes where you can find new shoes for the start of the school year.

Cheshire Pork
If you’re looking for easy and creative dinner ideas, we suggest making homemade pizzas using Cheshire Pork’s pepperoni. All Cheshire Pork's charcuteries are handmade by Giacomo Santomauro of the San Giuseppe Salami Company in Elon, North Carolina. Giacomo uses the same recipes his grandfather used in Brooklyn for 45 years, guaranteeing great Italian quality. A bonus is that all Cheshire Pork has no BHT, BHA or MSG added.

Butcher’s Market
Once the school year starts it can be hard to find the time to make dinner, but thanks to the Butcher’s Market making dinner has never been easier. The Butcher’s Market makes a variety of "Dinners Done Easy" that require minimal to no effort! We suggest the lasagna, made from scratch in the Butcher’s Kitchen. All you need to do is thaw, heat and serve! Another great option is their chicken and pasta bake, made with their signature marinated chicken breast.

For kids on the go, Sassool has a variety of salads and entrees that any kid will love! These healthy options are great to pack as quick and easy lunch, and to snack on before your child's sports practice. Plus, every Tuesday is Family Night where you get a free kids meal with the purchase of a large sandwich or platter!
