Echoing other's sentiments, this place is not kid friendly at all. My daughter was asked to go to the play area because she touched a book. How did he know I was not going to buy the book? The owner must watch kids in the store like a hawk, desperate for them to touch something. This guy, according to the business profile on Yelp, has 5 kids so how he thinks I am going to leave a 2 year old unattended in the play area and shop is beyond me. So, I just simply put the items down I was going to purchase and left. The items are probably cheaper online anyway.

I LOVE THIS STORE! AND SO DO MY KIDS! They get free stickers when they come with me. The new location is beautiful and they have a play area for my kids. The selection is great and I feel the prices are good. I always find something I need and save money by buying from the used items section. I highly recommend this store.

DO NOT BRING YOUR KIDS TO THIS STORE! I home school my kids and went there to buy some supply's. One would think that a store designed for the education of children would be a little more kid friendly but they are NOT! The worker is very grumpy and unfriendly. He follows the kids around like a creeper and God forbid they touch something! I have very well behaved kids. My 10 year old picked up a magnetic pen off the counter to show it to me and he jumped all over her and snatched it right from her hand. then he got onto my husband for not keeping my kids at the "play" table. (They have a small "play" table for the kids but there is nothing fun about it.) I stuck up for my kids and husband and the worker was extremely rude to me.

As far as the products they carry. There is a good selection but the price's are not great. Really, the only good part about this store is that you can buy right there and don't need to order online.

As for me personally, I will do anything I can to NOT shop there if I do not need to.

Don't take your kids!!! I am a teacher and have shopped many times at Teacher's Exchange. They have a good selection even if they are a little pricey. But I have overheard him fussing/yelling at children who were in there shopping with their parents. In my opinion the kids weren't doing anything wrong but it is clear the owner has no tolerance of children. I would NEVER take my own children there. He really should have a "no kids" sign on the door. It is misleading that a store with children's materials is not kid-friendly. You also have to watch the rules in the consignment area. I once found an item that had been there long enough to be 50%. When I went to purchase it I was told they wrote the dates backward so convinently the item was full price. I don't really believe that is how the date was written - I think it was to good of a deal for them to honor! Anyway, if you can't find what you need at one of the other stores in Polk County, this is a good one to try.

I love shopping at Teachers Exchange! They carry a great variety of all things school related! It's hard to stay on budget when in this store! The staff is incredibly helpful and is willing to order in an item if it is not something they normally carry. The store is well organized and kept up to date - a very pleasant shopping experience!

I really enjoy looking at all the things they have in here. Though not overly impressed with their laminating of poster (too thin). The staff is friendly and helpful. This store is quite pricey, but you will find what you are looking for.

I used to love this store. I received a gift certificate from my interning teacher and when I went to use it I was refused. There is a new owner, and as he said, he didn't get the money for the certificate when it was bought. So he lost a customer because of that.
