    Store improves services
The University Bookstore at the corner of 13th
Avenue and Kincaid Street has expanded and
reorganized to improve service this year.
Selling textbooks is a major function of the book
store, but it also features clothes, school supplies,
general books and a number of services.
The store offers an 11 percent discount on its 3,500
textbook titles.
"Last year students who bought textbooks here
saved $225,000 because of the discount,” says Jim
Williams, the store’s general manager.
Students can sell old textbooks to the store and
deceive half of the price they paid for the book if the
instructor is using it in the next term. Textbooks not
. being used may be sold for standard used book prices.
Upstairs also stocks 40,000 different titles in the
general book department, to provide what Williams
describes as “one of the largest selections of general
books in the state.”
A major change is that that department will now buy
back some popular general books.
"We won’t become a used bookstore, but we’re
broadening our buy-back service,” Williams says.
Upstairs will have an extra cash register to help
alleviate the crush that always accompanies the first
week of fall term. "I’m not promising, but it should
shorten lines," says Williams.
The store will also expand hours during the "big
crush” of first week. Hours will be 10 a m. to 5:30 p.m.,
Saturday; and 8:15 to 8 p.m. the following Monday
through Thursday. Regular hours are 10a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturdays; and 8:15 to 5:30 p.m., Mondays through
One of the largest improvements the store has made
is expanding the area for art and architecture supplies
from 900 to 2,500 square feet. These supplies have
been moved from the first floor down to the basement
The store also offers free gift-wrapping, free
check-cashing up to $30, photo-processing, photo
copying, postage stamps, bus passes and a place to
place Emerald classifieds.
