University Bookstore

Back-to-school special offers an extra bite of Apple

The University Bookstore is offering its customers an extra bite of Apple. Students, faculty and staff who buy certain Apple products qualify for giftcards to spend on apps.

Buy a Mac computer and get $100, or buy an iPad and get $50 towards music, movies, books, apps and more at the iTunes Store, the iBookstore or the App Store.

This offer is valid until September 21 and applies only to purchases by individuals, not by University departments.

Law library worker wins book

Marianne Grayce, a technical services assistant in the Paul Martin Law Library, knows her Windsor history—and is about to learn a little more. She won Monday’s DailyNews trivia quiz and the fabulous prize of a copy of 500 Ways You Know You’re from Windsor, a hardbound, full-colour collection of more than 650 photographs documenting some local landmarks.

Grayce’s name was drawn from all respondents who correctly identified Epps as a sporting goods store, Hi Ho as famous for its curbside service, and Columbia and St. Claire as the Bob-lo Island steamers.

University Bookstore offering deals on all-in-one printers

The University Bookstore is offering deals on two Canon printers capable of copying, scanning and faxing, while supplies last.

Book a guide for a stroll down Windsor’s memory lane

If you remember the Elmwood Casino, Skyway Drive-In, the Kresge’s lunch counter and the music of the Big 8, UWindsor alumnus Chris Edwards (BA 1983, MA 1985) has a book for you.

He and his partner Elaine Weeks of Walkerville Publishing have produced 500 Ways You Know You’re from Windsor, a hardbound, full-colour collection of more than 650 photographs documenting some local landmarks. The University Bookstore is selling the volume for $30 and marketing manager Martin Deck says it makes a perfect gift.

University Bookstore offering text rental service

When students first asked about renting textbooks instead of purchasing them, he laughed, says University Bookstore sales and marketing co-ordinator Martin Deck: “I didn’t think we’d be able to do so and remain in business.”

But 20 years after it first started selling used texts, the bookstore has added rental to its repertoire.
