For Mercyhurst alumni, parents and students who want to purchase cool new college attire, the Mercyhurst bookstore is now just a quick click away.
At the end of September, the college bookstore unveiled its renovated online shopping site within the Mercyhurst College web site. The site features photographs of sweatshirts, T-shirts, shorts, sweat pants, hats, jackets, youth and alumni apparel, plus order forms.
Visitors can order online or download an order form to mail or fax into the bookstore.
Dan Cullen, bookstore manager, said the reason behind the new online bookstore is simple — service.
“This is key, this gives another way to service our customers,” said Cullen, who says visitors to the web site will be able to check out specials for homecoming and the holidays while they browse through the virtual store. “We want to be able to keep our online presence simple and easy and fresh, and this new version does that.”
The college bookstore first opened its online shop two years ago, but Cullen and the information technology staff at the college felt it was time to make the book store easier to find and use.
