SU Bookstore to Hold a ‘Renovation Celebration’ Thursday and Friday
The Syracuse University Bookstore’s lower level underwent a full renovation over the summer, and to celebrate the updated space the entire store will hold a “Renovation Celebration” this Thursday and Friday, Sept. 27-28.
Students who picked up their textbooks may have noticed the change in both looks and efficiency. With a new layout and additional checkout counters, lines moved quicker during opening than in years past. As an added convenience, ’Cuse Copy Center powered by Ricoh was relocated inside the store’s lower level.
Both days will include free food, prizes, giveaways and games. Ice cream, popcorn, cookies and other snacks will be available for sampling from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on all three floors.
Thursday only, customers can check out a trunk show by Ciao Bella from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and visit with Hydroflask reps, who will give away free custom caps to customers who bring their Hydroflask bottles into the store.
With activities on each of the Bookstore’s three floors, customers are encouraged to join in a game: 1) Grab a card at the entrance; 2) Get a stamp at one station on each level, and; 3) Turn in your full card at ’Cuse Tech to register to win prizes like a Swissgear Synergy 16” laptop backpack, a Bushnell GPS/Fitness watch, a Leuchtturm Journal, or a Burt’s Bees gift basket.
