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.
“Be sure to ask for your discount before the clerk rings in your purchase!” Deck cautions.
Bookstore grand re-opening planned for Monday
The Bookstore will celebrate the opening of its temporary location in Vanier Hall with special savings on Monday, November 26.
The sale offers an additional 50 per cent off all previously-marked-down sale books and a special discounted T-shirt—only $9.95—available only at the Vanier location. The Bookstore will also be displaying demos of the new iPad 4 and iPad Mini, available for purchase soon.
From noon to 1:30 p.m., UWindsor alumni Elaine Weeks and Chris Edwards of Walkerville Publishing will be on hand to sign copies of their best-selling 500 Ways You Know You’re From Windsor.
The Bookstore is situated on the west side of Vanier Hall’s upper level and sells all textbooks as well as office, computer, art and school supplies. Clothing, giftware, graduation rings and diploma frames are available at the Bookstore’s kiosk in the CAW Student Centre.
