3M, the developer of the popular Post It and Scotch range of stationery solutions, plans to open dedicated stores for the brands in the UAE.
As a first step towards ensuring direct engagement with schools, 3M will inaugurate the first dedicated store for Post It and Scotch products at Emirates International School in Meadows, Dubai.

The first outlet will be inaugurated at the end of May and as an added benefit, students will be entitled to buy Post It and Scotch stationery at subsidized costs.
Post It and Scotch will also organise unique training programmes for teachers that will be aimed at educating them on incorporating innovative teaching tools that will enrich the overall learning experience for students while also complementing their creative instincts.
“Post It and Scotch products have proven to be key catalysts in enhancing the learning experience through innovative teaching methodologies around the world including the UAE. Our key objective to initiate collaboration with schools in the UAE is to share our global expertise in the realm of creative learning with all involved stakeholders,” said Imran Khan, division manager, 3M Stationery and Office Supplies Division, Gulf Markets.
“We are confident that the students and teachers community will immensely benefit with the various programs that we will introduce for respective schools in 2013.”
