In addition to select GC branded merchandise and classroom textbooks, The Store now features an array of general interest books and other reading material. For example, there is a full section devoted to volumes by local authors, one with a nice selection of both fiction and non-fiction, and another with books for children of all ages.
â€śSince the city of Georgetown doesnâ€™t have a bookstore downtown, we thought it would be nice to offer the local community a broader selection,â€ť said Michelle Stromquist Bowling â€™02 who manages The Store for Follett Education Group. which took over the Collegeâ€™s bookstore operation late in 2012.
The renovation included making the student textbook area self-service, repositioning and streamlining checkout, and reworking merchandise display areas throughout the store. Merchandise includes a variety of office and classroom materials and supplies as well as apparel.
