University Store Assumes Operation of Armstrong Campus Bookstore

STATESBORO, Ga. – The University Store, a department within Auxiliary Services at Georgia Southern University,  will assume operation of the Armstrong Campus bookstore in Savannah, GA effective May 15, 2020. This means that textbook operations, merchandise sales and technology sales will go through the University Store and Tech Corner brands of the University. Georgia Southern’s agreement with Follett Corporation, the prior operator of the store, will be allowed to expire on the same date University Store assumes operation.

“The University Store staff members are excited to serve all Georgia Southern students, faculty and members of the University community, especially during these very challenging times,” said Carlity Slatky, Director of Retail Services, including the University Store, at Georgia Southern University.  The store is responsible for supplying books, supplies and technology to students, faculty and staff on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah, GA and Liberty Campus in Hinesville, GA. 

Customers may visit GSUstore.com for all textbooks and supplies for Summer 2020, and the University Store is currently offering free shipping on all orders. In addition to having the largest and best selection of Georgia Southern gear available, the University Store looks forward to safely opening both stores closer to the start of the fall semester to better serve the University community. One Georgia Southern University, one store……your University Store.
