The Campus Store will do some spring cleaning this week.
To make room for new products, they will sell much of the current merchandise for a discounted price.
The event will take place from Tuesday to Saturday. The Campus Store will offer markdowns on all apparel and special pricing on select Under Armor and children’s products.
Scott Harsh, Campus Store director, said the store has changed its purchasing schedule, so having a clearance sale will help move older products to make room for new merchandise.
“We have changed our apparel buying so that instead of buying for the entire year we are now buying seasonally, two to three times a year, like most retailers do,” he said. “Our regular shoppers will have noticed that we had new products featured in our fall season, and then another set of new product in for spring.”
Harsh said the store changed to seasonal selling for a variety of reasons.
“First to help us manage our inventory better, and second to provide our customers with a more exciting shopping experience,” he said.
Chistow Langston, a sophomore from Colorado Springs, Colo., is a Campus Store employee. He said a variety of merchandise will be offered at the event.
“For the garage sale, we will be selling T-shirts for $5, sweatshirts and hoodies for $12 and pants and hats for $10. It’s a huge discount, so as a student, I would definitely be interested,” Langston said.
A garage sale will only be offered once an academic year, but because of this purchase change, The Campus Store will be utilizing sale and clearance areas throughout the semester to manage inventory levels.
Harsh said The Campus Store will be featuring new products on the website as they come in. In addition, new products for the fall semester will be set up by August, just in time for the back-to-school rush.
