As a token of their appreciation, the UD Bookstore is hosting a Faculty/Staff Appreciation Event today from 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and during the event, Follett, the company that runs the UD Bookstore, is extending a 20 percent total discount on select merchandise, including clothing and gift items.
"We appreciate the opportunity to show the UD community how much we value the 15 years of collaboration between UD and Follett," said Anita Johnson, bookstore manager. "Faculty and staff look forward to this event every year. I know that many use this opportunity to do some Christmas shopping."
According to Johnson, staff members have been "pre-shopping" the event this week, with holiday gift-giving in mind. Best sellers in previous years have been sweatshirt blankets, Nike t-shirts and hooded jackets from Weatherproof.
