Follett Begins Operating The University of North Carolina at Pembroke Store


PEMBROKE, N.C., Jul 27, 2017 – The University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP) transitioned to Follett Higher Education management on July 27, bringing new products, savings and support for campus store customers. UNCP selected Follett as the campus retail partner with the best resources, technology and product selection to support the unique needs of the campus community.

With this new partnership, UNCP faculty and students will have access to Follett's expansive inventory of affordable course material choices. Cost-saving print options include used course materials as well as Follett’s text rental program that delivers significant savings compared to purchasing new. Follett also offers a number of digital academic tools and programs that provide affordability and learning benefits, ranging from Instant Access to lower-priced digital course materials before the first day of class, and affordable open educational resources (OER) content and courseware by Lumen Learning.  New store services also include Follett’s year-round price match program.

"Follett’s focus is on enhancing the UNCP experience, so students can expect a campus store that delivers great products, promotes affordable course material options, welcomes the community and celebrates the campus spirit," said Clay Wahl, president of Follett Higher Education. "We look forward to serving UNCP students, faculty and staff, parents, alumni and fans."

Beyond course materials, Follett will refresh general merchandise offerings to be a one-stop shop for class and campus life essentials. UNCP customers can expect a custom merchandise assortment that reflects local interests as well as national trends in supplies, technology, clothing, gifts and more. Exciting brands carried include Adidas®, Under Armour®, League® Collegiate Outfitters, ’47® brand headwear and apparel and Cutter & Buck®. Follett’s products and services will be available in-store and through efollett.com, the leading online source for course materials and fan gear.
