Perhaps the next time you order a stir-fry for lunch, you’d like a hoodie on the side.
Starting Friday, the Guernsey Market and Campus Store will have you covered, whether you’re craving a burger and fries or a Brock sweatshirt and some printer ink.
A corner of the market, once reserved for selling groceries, has been transformed into a mini-Campus Store selling Brock and Badger gear - clothing, water bottles, coffee mugs - and a selection of school supply staples, including printer toner, computer accessories and limited stationary.
The expansion of the Campus Store’s presence to the Guernsey Market is part of a plan to integrate more retail and spread the Brock brand throughout the campus, said Tom Arkell, Brock’s Associate Vice-President of University Services.
“Wherever people are, we want to be bringing the product to the people, rather than the other way around,” Arkell said.
