No email communication on order. Had to keep calling to be told items were on backorder. Finally after only receiving half the order I cancelled the rest. The shipping charges were ridiculous and not reflected accurately when I placed the order. For the $14 dollar order I had I was charged the same amount in shipping. Has I not cancelled the other items I would have been charged an additional shipping rate. Considering the length of time it took to get the order, the shipping was ridiculous. If I had opted for an overnight shipping option it would make sense but this was not the case. On top of tax especially (I get tax is not their fault), I paid a ridiculous amount for these items. this company is a mess and I would never use them again

I see that others have been frustrated with Banks School Supply as I am. Over a month now and my order is still 'Processing', multiple attempts made inquiring on the status of my order and no response.

Its a roll of paper, its not a special order, its not a unique piece.. Finding a better deal than my normal supplier has turned out to be a worse deal.

Buyer beware!

Banks school supply in Denver is a warehouse and has the look and feel of a warehouse. However, as a teacher with a very strict budget, I appreciate the prices and the selection. If I do not know where something is, I just have to ask and I am usually taken right to it. As a parent I just have to say that I spent less than $20 on a nap mat for my daughter when she was in kindergarten and it has lasted through three kids so far with no cracks or tears. Their merchandise is school quality and is durable as well as affordable.

I was shocked when I read the reviews! I have NEVER had any issues! The staff is ALWAYS helpful and will walk me to something if I have a question. I am always greeted when I go in. There are times when they might not be at the front counter but they are usually showing an item to another customer or putting new things away; after all they are a warehouse and someone needs to put stuff away! I have been greeting in less than 30 seconds if they are not at the counter. They have everythng there. Yes it is a warehouse but I think the lighting is fine, you can see everything and everything is displayed. As far as tax exempt this policy has been around for YEARS that I know of, it is not different from any other location that I have ever been to. I have ordered items as well and things have been "in process" so I have called to see what the delay is and I have recieved calls from them with updates again they are dealing with venders and it is not their fault the vender is taking a long time or not getting them the info they are requesting. I would agree that it is frustrating when there are no prices on items but I have taken then to the counter and they quickly get the price for me. I know they are in the process of pricing. Again people need to look past their own issues such as hire more help etc. They need to look at cost, overhead and when people are available to do work. Just like any other job they can't have a receptionist just sitting at the counter doing nothing, plus people who are working doing other things would get mad if they didn't have the help. The thoughts of people who downgrade companies have probably never been an owner and know all the detail that go into running a place! Don't be fooled by a few ignorant people, this is a GREAT facility just bring your credit card, your going to fall in love and want everything!

They still seem to have the widest variety of items in the metro Denver area. On a visit this week, I became extremely frustrated because a large percentage of items weren't priced. They also have a policy concerning tax exempt numbers that I don't find at any other metro retailers. It made me wonder if they were audited in the past and had a knee jerk policy put into place as a result. All in all, nice selection, poor customer service.

Banks School Supply is very easy to miss the first time you look for it. It is located in a large warehouse type of building. The door to the School Supply store is not the main door to the facility; it is a door set off to the side (there are signs on it noting that it is the School Supply store).

The inside is a large warehouse style store with rows and rows of school materials. They have everything! From wall decorations, calendars, stickers, and awards to games and puzzles, educational books and CDs. The school books are arranged by grades and subjects in a large rectangle. There are books along shelves on the inside and outside of the rectangle. Also inside is an area with little chairs and tables which makes it nice to be able to review materials before purchasing them or to have children sit and enjoy a book while you shop. They have books on just about every subject imaginable and grades PreK through high school.

The materials are reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They are often very busy and it might take awhile to be assisted. Often there is no one at the front desk but there is a bell to ring if you need help.

For teachers they also offer some science supplies like beakers, test tubes, microscopes, etc.

Drawback are that it can sometimes be difficult to find what you are looking for and, due to the warehouse feel, it seems like it isn't well lit.

PROS: Great Variety of Items Not Readily Available, Reasonably Priced
CONS: Difficult to Find
