TORONTO, July 19, 2022 /CNW/ — Even though school has just ended, busy parents know it’s never too early to start planning for the upcoming school year. For the first time, Rootsthe global lifestyle brand inspired by the Canadian outdoors, will sell an exclusive collection of licensed back-to-school accessories on Amazon.ca. Customers can purchase each item separately or in three-piece sets for teens and children consisting of a backpack, lunch bag (comes with an ice pack in teen sets) and a pencil case in 13 new eye-catching designs and colors.
Whether shopping for a toddler or teenager, parents will find these new accessories offer the same premium quality that Roots is known for.
