  • How do I shop on this site?
    Shopping Cart: For your shopping convenience, this site uses a "shopping cart" to help you order online. This shopping cart works just the same as a real shopping cart - it collects items you want to purchase until checkout time.

    Simply browse the site and when you want to purchase an item, just click "Add to Cart" and the item will be saved in an area called My Cart on our website. Items will be saved until you are ready to make your purchase. Once your list is completed, simply use the "Check Out" button. You will see a final list of items purchased with applicable taxes and freight costs. This is the amount that will appear on your invoice.

    Navigation: This site utilizes a "Search Bar" in the top navigation bar of this site. You can search by the Vernon item number or by key words.

    You can also browse by product groups or categories by using the navigation areas on the top and left side of the site. Products are categorized by Supplies, Furniture, Equipment or Educational Products on the top navigation bar. The left navigation categories match our printed Annual Reference Catalog. Look for New Products, Clearance items and Shop by Brand options for easier browsing.
