As the saying goes, often times, the more things change, the more they remain the same. The OU Bookstore, once located at the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial stadium, has made several changes, but Normanites can still find many of the same resources as before.
With a new name, new location and new product line, the newly named Campus Corner Store opened in the building once occupied by CVS Pharmacy in Historic Campus Corner at 745 Asp Ave. The store now carries a full line of Apple products including AirPods, iPads, MacBooks, watches and accessories.
Alison Marci, the store’s director, said they are really excited to be an Apple store.
“It’s a place where people can buy Apple accessories without driving to Penn Square,” she said. “With the iPads and MacBooks institutionally priced, OU students, faculty and staff can purchase them at a lower price.”
Customers will enjoy the same selection of extensive inventory of textbooks, supplies, clothing and gifts, with the same great service.
“We still have textbooks and course materials, supplies, blue books and Scantron test sheets,” Marci said. “There are a lot of people calling in a panic looking for Scantrons and we have them. We also have all our great apparel and gift items that are really popular.”
Noah Lopez, an OU student studying botany and dental studies and his brother Lance, an Electrical Engineering student, both said the new store is worth the trip.
“I like the atmosphere of Campus Corner,” Lance said. “There are lots of places to go and there’s always something going on down here.”
“Walking to campus corner does take a little longer than getting to the stadium where this store was located but I like it,” Noah said. “There are lots of cool places all around it here.”
