Shop Owner Fights School Supplies Cost With Interesting Idea

Wife Launches Revolutionary Business “I’ve Never Heard Of…”

( – Inflation is hitting Americans at every turn. Despite the slight dip from 9.1% to 8.5% in July, commodities are still more expensive than they were. With back-to-school shopping already underway for some, one business owner is doing her best to help her community.

Monica Grays is a Cleveland, Ohio, teacher who also owns a consignment shop where she sells school supplies at a reduced cost. On Thursday, August 11, she appeared on “Fox & Friends” to talk about how her husband encouraged her to start 2nd Semester Consignment when they couldn’t find a similar store serving educators. Her shop has been open for six years and is very popular within the community.

The space has been a lifesaver for some teachers, who must buy their own classroom supplies, which can run several hundreds of dollars a year. At the end of the school year, educators can bring the goods back to 2nd Semester Consignment, receive a store credit, and use that to stock their classrooms the following year.

In addition to steeply-discounted, gently used products, Grays also provides a tutoring space in her new location. She makes it possible for professionals and volunteers to sign up, giving back to the community. It’s more than just a business; it’s a way to help those who need it most.
