                      It is with a heavy heart that I am letting you know that come May we are closing our doors. The unfortunate news came to us late last week. The owners of our building decided to sell to a property developer. The developer had previously bought the building next to us where Campus Corner used to be. Over the next few years they plan on tearing everything down and building a new student housing and retail building. There is talk that we may decide to open a new location in this new building, but that is still a few years away.

                    The Student Book Center was opened in 1967, by my Grandparents and it has truly been a pleasure working here and being apart of that legacy. I started working in High School and had imagined my daughter would be growing up at the store as well. It is a huge accomplishment to have been in business for 49 years, and managed by 3 different generations. I am very proud and honored to have been a part of it. Vendors and customers have become more then that, they have become friends and family, and it is quite hard having to say good bye. But all good books come to an end, even if you delay reading that last page for a while.
