Book signing a reminder that the past makes a perfect present

The past is the perfect present, says Chris Edwards.

The UWindsor grad (BA 1983, MA 1985) and his life and business partner Elaine Weeks (BA 1985) have already sold 4,000 copies of their nostalgic coffee table book, 500 Ways You Know You’re From Windsor. They will sign copies as a pre-holiday promotion at the University Bookstore kiosk in the CAW Student Centre on Wednesday, December 12, from noon to 2 p.m.

Sale to celebrate grand opening of temporary Bookstore location today

The University of Windsor Bookstore will celebrate its grand re-opening in Vanier Hall today—Monday, November 26—with a grand sale to match the occasion.

The sale features a promotion of 50 per cent off the price of books that have already been marked down.

“Here’s one example of a book,” Bookstore marketing manager Martin Deck said. “A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving that was originally priced at $22, our regular sale price being $6.99, and the final half-off price brings it to $3.50.”

There is also a new item available just for the occasion.

Bookstore kiosk offering Black Friday savings to UWindsor employees

The Friday after US Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, is traditionally the beginning of the holiday shopping season, says Martin Deck, marketing manager of the University Bookstore.

“We wanted to find a way to honour that tradition and save our loyal customers the hassle of driving stateside to shop,” he says.

The Bookstore will offer University of Windsor faculty and staff a 10 per cent discount on all clothing and giftware at its kiosk in the CAW Student Centre for one day only—Friday, November 23—from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
