The opening of the Campus Bookstore is “another step forward” in the University’s efforts to create a great student experience, president Alan Wildeman said Tuesday as he joined officials, staff and guests for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the facility, on the lower level of the CAW Student Centre.
The event welcomed dozens of patrons with cake, cookies and door prizes.
“I am thrilled to see everyone here with us,” said bookstore manager Cathy Ladouceur. “We have heard lots of excitement over the style of the store.”
The grand opening celebrations continue today with a street fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., featuring live entertainment, a book signing by alumnus Justin Teeuwen and discounts—including 10 percent off all stock excluding textbooks and computers. The first 500 students to show up at noon will receive free beverages and hot dogs.
On Thursday, the Campus Bookstore will hold a fashion show to display UWindsor- and Lancer-themed apparel, in conjunction with the Campus Community Barbecue in the Student Courtyard.
