Buy texts now to avoid Bookstore rush in January

The University Bookstore’s temporary home in Vanier Hall may mean some cramped quarters at the beginning of the semester, says marketing coordinator Martin Deck.

He advises students who have already registered for their winter courses to think ahead and purchase their texts before heading home for the holidays.

“If it gets too crowded during the start of next semester, we may need to restrict access to the store, meaning a line-up for patrons to get in,” he says. “I hope that students will avoid the rush by coming in once their exams are completed.”

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.

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.

Marketing manager Martin Deck encourages customers to buy course materials and school supplies before end-of-day Wednesday, but notes that online ordering will remain operational through the transition period.

“We are also waiving all shipping charges for orders placed in the month of November,” he adds.
