Sidewalk sale makes splash in the sun

The new Campus Bookstore is a big improvement, said shoppers checking out the merchandise during its sidewalk sale Wednesday.

“The space is open and airy,” said Lori D’Andrea. “It’s beautiful.”

She and her husband Claudio D’Andrea (BA 1986) were looking for some UWindsor apparel to send away with their daughter. Just completed studies at Windsor Law, she will be heading to Toronto soon to begin articling.

“We just want her to have a reminder of home,” said Claudio D’Andrea.

Jacqueline Mellish, residence life coordinator for Macdonald and Electa halls, purchased a couple of shirts to show her Lancer pride and promised to direct students to the store.

“They have a lot of nice items here I think our students will appreciate,” she said.

Bookstore marketing coordinator Martin Deck said the sale did a brisk business.

“We are very pleased with our first week in our new home,” he said. “We’re enjoying sort of a soft launch before the start of fall semester.”
