    Good afternoon,
    We are reviewing operational needs vs. expenses. I am curious about if your main bookstore is closed on Sundays?
    If yes, is your store self op, or managed by a provider.
    Thank you-Owen

    We are self-op.  Our Bookstore is closed on the weekends with the exception of two weeks 'Rush' at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters.

    We have a Stadium Spirit Store that is open on the Saturday's of home football games.

    Owen,

    We are contracted and have always been closed on Sunday.  While we are a catholic school a former non denominational school was also closed Sunday's.

    We do open Sunday's for special events, as needed.

    Good morning!

    The University of Arizona BookStores is a self op institutional store and open 7 days a week.  We do an analysis of sales by hour to determine store hours.  We have found Sunday is beneficial and financially worth being open.  We did reduce them to open at 11am but we are busier towards the end of the day.  We also analyzed what it costs to be open operationally and expenses for labor to validate being open.  As well, we are a service to our students, and we have found they love having the store open and available to them.

    Just a point to make on store hours and days of operations.  It's always been my belief that sales and traffic drives and supports hours of operations.

    In the case of being open Sunday, holidays or extended hours I consider sales and traffic for those days to determine whether they are cost justified or not.  Additionally, in the case of requests for additional service hours or days is justified when demand is high and anticipated traffic warrants the added hours and associated operating expenses.

    It's always easier to justify adjusting service hours when the data supports it.

    Last year we were self-op and were not open on Sundays. This year we have moved to a vendor and will remain closed on Sundays.

    We are a community college with a very small athletics program and no student housing. We have very little traffic on campus on weekends. Our self-op bookstore is closed all Sundays and only open Saturdays during rush.

    Our bookstore is generally not open on Sundays.  We are actually reviewing the necessity of having open hours on Saturdays as well.  The exceptions are for Admissions events, orientations, Freshmen move in week and graduation.  Our store is managed by Follett, Inc.

    Owen,
    The Lope Shop at Grand Canyon University is institutionally owned and operated and we are closed on Sundays. However, we also have a small store in our hotel which is opened on Sundays.

    Hope this helps.

    Good morning!

    ​We are self-op and closed most Sundays (exceptions during rush and other events).  We just don't have the traffic on campus for it and it's not the easiest for our local community to park.

    I worked for a Follett for a decade and none of the stores I worked at for them were open Sundays, either.  I know it certainly happens with stores that are more community accessible, though.
