Date: August 14, 2020

Late this summer Follett, the operator of our campus bookstores, notified PNW of the need to reduce expenses by adjusting the hours of operation on the Hammond Campus and closing the store on the Westville Campus.

PNW negotiated for a compromise solution, but the COVID-19 pandemic significantly reduced revenue during a time when in-store sales of textbooks and other instruction material have already been downward trending throughout higher education for several years.  Follett determined the changes were both necessary and unavoidable.

Services Available to Students

To ensure students have access to required course materials, Follett has agreed to offer limited dates at the start of the fall semester when orders may be picked up at the Westville bookstore.

Books can be ordered online at Follett’s campus store website or in person at the Hammond campus bookstore.  No books or supplies will be available for purchase at the Westville bookstore.

After September 2 and for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester, you can choose to have your order delivered to your home or shipped to the Westville campus where it will be available for pickup at Westville Print Services located at LSF 001 C on the Westville campus Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Please note you will avoid shipping costs if you choose to pick up your order at Westville Print Services.

Current Hammond campus hours may be found here.

Follett will, of course, continue to offer customer service, textbooks, student supplies and spirit wear on its campus store website. PNW Athletics also offers athletic and various Pride logo apparel at their online store which may be found here.
