The U of A Bookstore on Garland Avenue will reopen on March 2 and will be operated and managed by Barnes and Noble College.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – After a contract negotiation that began in December, the University of Arkansas has agreed with Barnes & Noble College to allow it to assume operation of the U of A Bookstore on Garland Avenue, as well as the Promenade Razorback Shop in Rogers.

Due to the transition, both store locations will be closed Feb. 21-March 1 for training. Both locations will re-open on March 2. During this time, customers will not be able to purchase items from either store, however, Anime Café, the Computer Store and iMedic will remain open.

Once the bookstore re-opens, students will continue to have the same variety and selection of textbook and course material offerings that have always been made available including: new, used, rental, inclusive access, OER, and e-edition books. However, there will be a new process in selecting those books and course materials that will be provided by Barnes & Noble. That information will be sent out at a later time.

It is anticipated that the bookstore will become a place where the campus community, fans and other visitors can meet, connect and experience some of the passion so many have for the University of Arkansas. The bookstore will continue to strive to be the low-cost leader in textbooks and course materials, as well as the overall go-to destination for purchasing textbooks, trade books, supplies, sports apparel, souvenirs and other university-related merchandise.
