WHEATON, IL, Jan 9, 2020 – Follett Higher Education Group and Wheaton College are pleased to announce the opening of our newly renovated store located in the Student Services Building in the heart of campus.
No longer simply a bookstore, the rebranded “Wheaton College Campus Store” offers expanded clothing lines, gifts, supplies and general books, as well as charging stations and reading/study tables. In addition, the online pickup area and text information desk have been expanded to provide added service.
The newly renovated space represents a collaborative effort between Follett Higher Education, who manages the store, and the school design team, who worked together to create a space that acts in harmony with the other areas of the recently remodeled Student Services Building.
The remodel also incorporates finishes that were used in areas adjacent to the store, including historical slate roofing taken from a former campus landmark. Large format graphics feature iconic Wheaton Campus images, with a nod to the school colors of blue and orange, and bring the space into focus as a student-centered experience.
The result is a campus store that’s more than a place to shop. It’s a destination that promises to deliver personalized experiences that strengthen student, faculty, and alumni connection to Wheaton College now and for the future.
