NBC, (WILX) - Target is looking to give teachers a helping hand over the next week.

Starting Saturday, Target is offering teachers a 15% discount in store and online on school supplies and classroom essentials.

Teachers need to sign up online at Target's website with your teacher ID in order to get the 15% discount coupon that's good through July 20.

Also Saturday, about 1,000 Walmart stores across the country are holding teacher appreciation events.

That includes the Owosso and Battle Creek stores.

The events run from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m with swag bags for the first 300 teachers.

Several other retailers, including Michael's and Office Depot, have teacher discounts that kick in starting Sunday.
