Big 8 logoThe designer of CKLW’s Big 8 logo will join authors Elaine Weeks and Chris Edwards to sign copies of “5,000 Ways You Know You’re From Detroit,” Thursday in the Campus Bookstore.

Store savings in the cards for staff and faculty

UWindsor staff and faculty can get a break on their gift shopping this week, as the Campus Bookstore is offering a “scratch-and-save” discount Wednesday and Thursday, December 6 and 7.

Employee patrons will scratch cards to earn discounts of between 10 and 25 per cent on their purchases, excluding textbooks and course materials, computers, gift cards, special orders, and already-discounted merchandise.

Note: The store will close Wednesday from noon to 2 p.m. so staff can attend Catering Services’ holiday luncheon.

Marketing co-ordinator Martin Deck has a special event planned for Thursday: Elaine Weeks and Chris Edwards, authors of the coffee table book 5,000 Ways You Know You’re From Detroit, will be on hand to sign books at noon. They will be joined by Bobby Bodchon, who designed the classic Big 8 logo for radio station CKLW.

“Everybody is going to want this book for Christmas,” Deck says. “Getting a signed copy is going to make it even more of a collector’s item for anyone interested in local history.”
