The University Campus Store continues to accommodate the needs of students, alumni and fans, now in the Sandy area. To this end, the U is excited to announce the grand opening of a new location. Utah students, employees, alumni, fans and neighbors are invited to visit the new store, grab a free J-Dawgs hot dog and 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.
Join the University Campus Store and co-host, University Federal Credit Union Friday, April 7, from 3 to 7 p.m. on the ground level of the continuing education building at One Sandy Center, 10011 Centennial Parkway in Sandy, just south of Sandy City Hall.
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.”
Sandy One will operate as a full-service campus store, equipped with all of the technology, Utah merchandise, textbooks, UTech support and academic materials that students and staff in the Sandy area need, along with food and convenience items. 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.
An added bonus for grand opening attendees, select items will be available for up to 65% off. Additionally, alumni will receive a 25 percent 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.
Regular Campus Store Sandy One store hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
