After an extensive three-month renovation, the UCR Campus Store has reopened with new features, new facilities, and a new, single-level floor plan.

The new and improved Campus Store boasts a Marketplace, offering snack foods, bottled beverages and greeting cards; a highly-requested beauty bar featuring an array of cosmetic products; and a renewed focus on literary works by UCR’s own faculty. Textbooks have relocated from the lower level with a dedicated Information Desk, and UCR-branded apparel abounds.

An official grand re-opening for the Campus Store will be announced in upcoming weeks.

The UCR Campus Store is managed by Barnes & Noble College, which operates more than 750 college and university bookstores nationwide.

During construction, the Campus Store remained open, operating out of its lower level.

The vacated lower level will be the future home of the UCR Career Center. Construction of the new Career Center offices is currently underway.

Take a peek of the newly renovated store through our slideshow below and be sure to stop by before the fall quarter crowds appear!
