Teachers Warehouse

About Teachers Warehouse

Teachers Warehouse is a retail school supply store that does not have a cash register. The store was designed to assist teachers by providing basic educational tools to children who do not have the items needed to help them learn. The Bloomington Rotary Club created the project after the Herald Times published a story in 2002 about a similar program operated in Cincinnati.

The store is open to public elementary school teachers in Monroe, Brown, Lawrence and Greene counties.

During the 2012-2013 school year, nearly 400 teachers shopped at Teachers Warehouse, many of whom returned multiple times throughout the school year to pick up additional supplies.
