In an ongoing effort to be the best resource for all students, the University Campus Store has opened a new location to accommodate the needs of students and alumni in the Sandy area. To commemorate this new location, the store will host a grand opening on Friday, April 7th, from 3 to 7 p.m. Utah students, employees, alumni, fans and neighbors are invited to come see the new store, grab a free J-Dawgs hot dog and a drink, and enjoy fun family activities and prize giveaways. A special appearance by Swoop will be made, so come prepared to take photos and bring your family and friends. Events will take place outside of the new store, which is located on the ground level of the continuing education building at One Sandy Center, 10011 Centennial Parkway in Sandy, just south of Sandy City Hall.
An added bonus for grand opening attendees, select items will be available for up to 65% off. Additionally, alumni will receive a 25% discount on all regularly priced merchandise. Both discounts will run in the Sandy One location only, through April 7 and 8. Computers, electronics, textbooks, regalia, diploma frames and special orders are not eligible for discount.
The University Campus Store Sandy One will operate as a full-service campus store, equipped with all of the technology, Utah merchandise, textbooks and academic materials that students and staff in the Sandy area need, along with food and convenience items. Essentially a replica of the main Campus Store, the Campus Store Sandy One offers the same products and services and will feature the same departments such as textbooks and a UTech department where computers and technology can be bought and serviced. The new store seeks to foster a better educational environment and serve the needs of the continuing education community in a location that is convenient to them.
Believing that the campus bookstore is a fundamental part of the student experience, Campus Store Director Dan Archer is encouraged by the new venture. “We support the vision of continuing education and we’re responsible to make sure those students have access to the resources they need to succeed,” Archer said. “This store accomplishes that, and also supports the university’s purpose and core mission to promote education.”
Join the University Campus Store and co-host, University Federal Credit Union, from 3 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 7, and celebrate the grand opening with food, fun activities and prizes.
