Linda and Wilson McClellan recognized a need for a local school supply store and opened our doors in 1975. They have a convenient and central location on Church Street (just north of University) and offer free delivery to schools and churches within 100 miles. But Schoolcraft is NOT just for teachers – they are open to the public! Specializing in age ranges from preschool through middle school, their large showroom carries educational toys, décor, stickers, books, and more.
