Spring is a time of change, of new beginnings—and the OTC Bookstore has spring fever. In an effort to better serve students and faculty, as well as simplify your shopping process, we have made some significant changes to our store’s layout.
Our register and textbook areas, which were previously at opposite ends of the store, have now been merged into one. Not only do we have two more registers to further increase productivity and reduce wait time in line, each customer gets their own personal bookstore employee to gather their books for them when they come up to the register (if you’ve ever used our Textbook Reservation service, it’s the same basic process). ONLY OTC BOOKSTORE EMPLOYEES ARE ALLOWED BEHIND THE REGISTER AREA. If you need to register for your OTC SmartCard or sell back your textbooks, those areas have been relocated to the far right end of the register counter.
At the front of the store where the registers used to be, we have a check-in station that will act as the new home of booklists. If you need a list of materials for your classes, this is your stop. We also plan to eventually set up a register here where small, non-textbook purchases can be made.
As you can see, there are a lot of exciting changes taking place here at the OTC Bookstore, and we sincerely hope you continue to enjoy your shopping experiences with us.
