Bookstore Grand Opening November 8

The new Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Gateways Boone Campus will conduct a grand opening open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, at the new store at 500 Technology Way, Florence, Ky. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend the event, which will include a brief ceremony and ribbon-cutting at 11:30 a.m.

People who attend the open house will receive a coupon for 10 percent off one Gateway-branded item.

Were delighted to officially open the new store, which is about three times larger than the existing store at Gateways Covington Campus, said store manager Heather Jones. We have a lot more space to offer students more services and more merchandise in addition to textbooks and school supplies.

For example, our marketplace includes a coffee nook, a microwave and some food items to have lunch or a snack on the run. We also have a study area, Jones added. We hope everyone will stop by to see what we have to offer and enjoy some refreshments during the open house.

The bookstore is in its own separate building on the Boone Campus. To reach it, turn left at the stop sign on Technology Way. The bookstore is the building on the left at the top of the hill.
