Loyola Chicago University Campus Bookstores Respond to Rambler Basketball Excitement

Pop-Up Locations and New Fan Gear Arriving Hourly


CHICAGO, ILL., Mar 29, 2018 – Loyola Chicago University Campus Bookstores are opening additional retail locations in response to Loyola Basketball excitement. Earlier this week, the bookstore opened a pop-up location at 822 N. Michigan (at Pearson, across from the Water Tower). On Friday, the Lakeshore Main Store will expand into temporary space adjacent to the Lakeshore Campus store at 6435 N. Sheridan Road. 

“We are excited for the team and the community and thrilled to help students and fans show their Loyola pride by expanding our space and bringing in additional apparel and items in front of the big game this weekend,” said Stacy Zapko, Bookstore Group Vice President. “In addition, we are distributing free cheer cards to our customers while supplies last.  We want to thank everyone for supporting the bookstore.”

Our locations have a fantastic selection of new products arriving daily such as the Nike Loyola Final Four T-Shirts, the popular “Breaking Hearts and Brackets” Tee, as well as Sister Jean items and a new shipment of Loyola striped scarfs.  Merchandise is flying off the shelves as soon as it is put out, but our suppliers have additional items arriving hourly.

Loyola Chicago University Campus Stores welcome the entire Loyola Chicago University community – including students, parents, alumni, fans, faculty and staff – to shop at our stores and gear-up for the “David vs. Goliath” game Saturday, March 31 against Michigan.  For students attending the campus viewing party on Saturday, the main bookstore and the bookstore located in the Alumni Student Center will be open Saturday.
