The Clarion Store had its Grand Opening Tuesday, Feb. 7, in the Gemmell Student Complex.

Despite delays caused by material shortages and a stretched workforce, the Clarion Store was able to open in time for the students’ return to campus Jan. 17.

The Clarion Student Association now owns and operates the Clarion Store, and eCampus serves as the university's textbook supplier with pickup available at the store.

Sandra Machokas, executive director of the Clarion Students’ Association, said students were vocal about making the store affordable. With the help of Clarion Store Manager Megan Boozer and her student employees, Machokas believes they have accomplished this goal.

The Clarion Store is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
