Campus Bookstore a source for swag, supplies and special apparel

There are several advantages to sourcing the purchase of promotional items through the Campus Bookstore, says general merchandise buyer Lynda Leckie—and the campus connection tops her list.

“When you make a purchase at the Campus Bookstore, the money stays on campus and supports UWindsor initiatives compared to when you buy off-campus, the profit remains with the outside vendor,” she says.

Leckie has developed a network of contacts—supporting Canadian-made and local businesses as much as possible—that can help when departments, conferences, student clubs, awareness campaigns need to get a message out.

“Absolutely anything can be ordered,” she says. “Swag, giftware, apparel—we can have it imprinted or embroidered and I will get the best pricing available.”

She points out that students and faculty are entitled to educational pricing for items from Apple or Microsoft, and departmental purchases made on a UWindsor account do not pay taxes: “That’s a huge savings right there.”
