Vassar College


Vassar College will reinvent and expand its bookstore into a neighborhood business, with a move across from campus to a Raymond Avenue storefront

Vassar College will transform its campus bookstore into an Arlington neighborhood business for the general public, as well as for Vassar students and employees, by expanding and relocating the operation in 2009 to the Raymond Avenue storefront currently occupied by Juliet Pizza and Billiards. While business plans for the new store are still in development, the college expects the new bookstore to be open longer hours, sell a wider selection of general interest books, merchandise, and Vassar clothing and gifts, and include an entertainment space. The store will also continue to serve Vassar faculty members ordering textbooks and other class materials.   Click for full story
