Basic is a nice store. As you enter you are not really greeted. The store is huge and spread out in different sections which is great for specific contents. The parking situation is ok if it is not the beginning of the school year. If so then you need to circle the parking lot, or park on the side of the road in the grass. Not very safe. The prices are high for some items, and reasonable for teacher items. If you are looking to buy general school supplies, I would recommend going to discount store. The good thing about Basic is if you want to buy posters you can also get them lamentaed there for a small fee.
