UC Bookstores virtual Holiday Open House offers discounts, gift with purchase

UC Bookstores is offering a 30% discount exclusively for UC faculty and staff

As with many events in 2020, the UC Bookstores are going virtual for their annual UC Bookstores Holiday Open House. Shop online to receive the discount* on UC emblematic apparel and gift items. Ground shipping will be free, or you can order online and pick up in-store. The TUC store will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. If you’re on campus, shop in-store, too.

Since many faculty and staff are working from home, we have a twist on our traditional gift for shoppers this year. A winter-themed thirsty stone coaster (photo above) will be your gift with purchase in-store or online. It will be perfect for your home or campus desk, and #StrengthInUnity will remind us that no matter where we are working, we are still together, working for our students’ academic success. Coaster supplies are limited.

30% Total Discount* on UC emblematic apparel and gifts (30% = your 15% discount + 15%)

Do some window shopping in advance at uc.edu/bookstore.

Giving back

The pandemic has had ripple effects into our students’ lives that we may not often consider. The Bearcats Pantry has increased demand since the number of food-insecure students has grown. The provides free food, hygiene items and cleaning supplies to students with food and other insecurities.

In the spirit of giving, and not being able to do the traditional food and supply collection for the Bearcats Pantry, we encourage faculty and staff to consider making a donation to the pantry, or call the Pantry at 513-556-3780​​​​​​​ to schedule a drop off if you prefer.
