Madison, WI (August 3, 2009) — Most school kids cram their lockers with lunch bags,
backpacks and pencil cases. But not kids who’ve gotten their school supplies at Oompa.com. For
some, it may be because they want to show off their hip, back-to-school stuff. For others, it may
be because the things their parents got them on Oompa.com work so well. Either way, it means
that this school year will be filled with “reading, writing and Oompa.com.”
“Ring! Ring!” School’s back in session! Help your kids get better-educated this year by giving
them all the right stuff:
