Ulrich’s is moving

Spotted today on South University: fixture since time immemorial, Ulrich’s bookstore is moving, according to all of their windows. A web address is listed for more information but it was raining and I don’t remember what it was. (UPDATE: it’s “ulrichs.com/email” and it just goes to the parent company’s website.)

The store announcements section of the website says NOW HIRING, but the last time I saw a store “moving” with a website, it was Blockbuster Video, saying they were “moving to Blockbuster.com.” Hopefully Ulrich’s maintains a local presence? Are we still rooting for college textbook stores these days? More news as I make it up.

  1. Oh, wow, that’s big. Nebraska Book Company has seemingly been in trouble forever, but my hunch is that this has more to do with the new development on South U. I thought it was that whole block, essentially, that’s been bought up to be overhauled. I’m just letting the rumors fly, though.

    1. Thanks Jennifer! I noticed Ulrichs.com links direct to Follett’s site (Follett manages EMU’s bookstore in their Student Center too).
