With just a few weeks of summer vacation left on the calendar, kids and parents are preparing to head back to class. 
Kid City Stores is one of many stores across the five boroughs bracing for the hectic back-to-school shopping season – but their wall-to-wall department store on Fordham Road has almost everything a student could need.  
Mario DeGiorgio, general manager of Kid City Stores, says that beyond the backpacks and accessories, they carry uniform clothing to try and accommodate every school in the area.  
While pens, pencils and uniforms may not be a kid’s favorite part of back-to-school shopping, Kid City Stores carries the latest trending items in clothes for kids, including jeans, athletic wear, and T-shirts.  
Kid City Stores plans to hand our vouchers along Fordham Road to give parents discounts on their back-to-school purchases.
