(ANSA) – MILAN, 02 SEPT – The expenses for diaries, boxes and everything needed for the start of the school year, excluding books, this year increased between 6 and 8%. This is the Coop Alleanza 3.0 projection made on the data of its stores, over 350 in nine regions.
According to estimates by the Goods Department of Coop Alleanza 3.0 for reams of paper, the increase is between 10 and 30%, for backpacks, cases and briefcases between 3 and 5, with an average expenditure between July and September of 230 euros.
The commitment of the Cooperative, explained the president Mario Cifiello, is to limit prices as much as possible because “access to education is a non-negotiable issue”.
This, for example, with the two “2022 school catalogs” which provide until 5 October a controlled price on 300 products and discounts of up to 30%, and a monthly update of discounted products based on the requests of members who fill out the online survey. , while for school books there is a discount for members of 15% on the cover price of new school books and a 60% discount for members and consumers on the cover price for the purchase of used school books; in the case of delivery of used books, members and consumers receive a shopping voucher equal to the value of 30% of the cover price. In addition, on 10 September “Donate shopping for school” will return, the collection of school materials that customers can buy in almost 200 points of sale (and with EasyCoop where the online shopping service is active) which last year made it possible to 165 thousand packages of products for those who needed it most.
“With these initiatives Coop Alleanza 3.0 continues to do its part” said Cifiello but it is essential “that politics take serious responsibility for the issue, whoever is called upon to face the coming months. Initiatives must be imagined and implemented quickly. that contribute to alleviate the burden of the international situation on citizens even in view of the winter, in an equitable way, overcoming the territorial differences that are often noted both in terms of value and in terms of support disbursement times “.
