The Campus Store will give Washington University faculty and staff members an opportunity to do some early holiday shopping.
The store will hold its 14th annual Faculty/Staff Appreciation Event Wednesday, Nov. 30, and will offer a 30 percent discount to Washington University faculty and staff members from 3-8 p.m.
From 3-6 p.m., the event also will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments and a performance by William Lenihan, director of jazz performance in the Department of Music in Arts & Sciences, and other members of his trio.
Door prizes will be offered courtesy of The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, in Clayton, Mo., and Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood, Mo.
In addition, Amanda E. Doyle and Kerri Bonasch, co-authors of Finally, a Locally Produced Guidebook to St. Louis by and for St. Louisans: Neighborhood by Neighborhood, will sign their book from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
“My staff and I look forward to hosting the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Event in our new and improved store,” says Betsy Schneider, Campus Store director. “We invite all WUSTL faculty and staff members to stop by the Campus Store, mingle with colleagues and enjoy great savings — all while getting a jump start on your holiday shopping.”
The 30 percent discount is good for general reading books and merchandise, including clothing and gifts. Computer hardware, software and peripherals, New York Times Best Sellers, magazines and convenience items are not eligible for the discount.
To receive the discount, faculty and staff members must bring either their WUSTL ID cards or an invitation to the event, which were sent via campus mail.
WUSTL faculty and staff members normally receive a 20 percent discount at the bookstore.
The Campus Store is located on the main floor of Mallinckrodt Center on the university’s Danforth Campus.
