Located at 934 Main Street in the first floor of Clark’s brand new Alumni Student Engagement Center you can find the university’s new Campus Store (or “book store” for anyone over the class of 2020.) The store sits in the middle of the new building with large windows overlooking the campus gates and Jonas Clark. The Campus Store opened the week before classes started with new items arriving every week to fill up the tall shelves with every Clark-themed item you could dream of.
While physically smaller than the previous location, the new Campus Store offers a more diverse range of products and new designs relying heavily on the CU Cougar, “Fiat Lux” and a new JC sunset graphic.
The store is open from 10am to 4pm Monday through Friday and unlike the previous book store, the new Campus Store is run completely by Clark’s business offices and headed up by Robin Dziczek. This means that unlike the previous store, run through Barnes and Noble, the current Campus Store carries designs unique to Clark and is also staffed by all Clarkies.
Similar to the old bookstore, the Campus Store offers school supply items and necessities such as notebooks, pens, index cards and chargers – the store even has a charging station for your phone! While it no longer stocks snacks, you can pick up a drink and pastry at “The Den,” the newest addition to Clark Dining, which you pass to get to the Campus Store.
There are now items for everyone meaning your gift-giving options have grown to include higher end pens, pictures and engraved Clark items. There are even things for your Clarkie parents, grandparents and even Clark University collars for your furry friends!
While there isn’t currently an online order system for the Campus Store, according to the Clark Website and business manager Paul Wykes, one will go up soon.
We visited the store to scope out the new items arriving daily and picked out a few of our favorites. Check them out below!
