White Paper: How College Bookstores Can Thrive With The New Hybrid Bookstore Model 

The New Hybrid College Bookstore Model White Paper was released today and is now available for download. 

This exclusive report provides key learning on how institutions are successfully implementing a low-cost online bookstore offering, while building a best-in-class on-campus shop.

For many institutions, the college bookstore is an integral part of the campus experience, but maintaining a vibrant retail shop has become increasingly challenging as competition from online, third-party providers has intensified and students are leaving the school-sanctioned bookstore in search of better pricing on their textbooks and course materials.

This new White Paper is a must read for administrators who are critically evaluating their current bookstore model and considering new approaches. Learn how college bookstores can win back students, thrive in the future - and review key steps for establishing this new model, including:

  • Creating a vision for a new store strategy
  • Online service requirements
  • New potential services
  • Revenue-generating product ideas
  • Managing the transition
