Holiday shopping is in full swing, and at the Barnes & Noble @ IUPUI Official Bookstore, students, staff and faculty are clamoring for IUPUI swag for friends, family and themselves.
The bookstore will follow Campus Center hours, which means it will be open through Dec. 24 for early and late shopping needs. And the store's online service is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
"We have a lot of sales going on, and we do get a lot of people in here doing their holiday shopping," said Ana Cabezas, general manager of Barnes & Noble @ IUPUI. "If they're far away, we get them online."
This month, the store has been stocked with dozens of new holiday-friendly items, from ugly Christmas sweaters and scrunchies to ornaments and new mugs for that hot cocoa. Warm up to these new products, just in time for the holidays.
