University Bookstore to relocate to Vanier Hall

The University Bookstore is urging its customers to purchase necessary course materials or supplies by the end of the month, when it will move into a new temporary location on the upper level of Vanier Hall.

The store will close its operations in the Odette Building at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, and will re-open on Monday, November 12, in Vanier Hall’s Winclare lounge. The move will accommodate the expansion of the Odette School of Business.

Marketing manager Martin Deck says the bookstore will not only be open through October, but promises some savings for loyal customers.

“Our sale books are an additional 50 per cent off, and patrons can save 30 per cent off all UWindsor logo giftware,” he says. “We have a lot of other merchandise on sale as well, but too much to specify.”

The Bookstore will also staff a satellite operation in the CAW Student Centre. Its kiosk there will open by Monday, November 5, in the vendor area inside the building’s east entrance.

“That location will sell U of Windsor clothing, giftware, diploma frames and graduation rings,” Deck says.

The location in Vanier Hall will operate 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. The University Bookstore Web site will remain in operation through the move, making available purchases online. Find more information at
