Bookstore offers great holiday deal

The holiday season is finally here, and with the season comes the great joy – and stress – of gift giving. The Mercyhurst Bookstore has you covered.

The Bookstore is offering a generous 20% off sale for all clothing and gifts now until Dec. 21. Students, faculty and staff have plenty of time before Christmas break to grab their gear. There is a large variety of items that can be purchased. There are warm blankets to keep cozy in the cold weather, available in many different colors.

There are many winter hats in a plethora of styles and colors to accommodate everyone’s tastes in fashion.

Walking into the Bookstore, you will immediately see the great number of hoodies, crewnecks and long sleeve shirts. Many of the hoodies and sweatshirts are lined with fleece on the inside, perfect for the snow that is always expected with an Erie winter.

For those who decorate Christmas trees, there are a handful of ornament styles with the Mercyhurst logo on them. You can show your Laker pride, even on the branches of a tree.

Grace Mullins, a junior Dance major, works at the Bookstore. Mullins said that the items offered at the Bookstore are plentiful, and students should definitely look for some of their gifts there.

“Whenever I’m working a shift at theBookstore, I take a couple laps around just to see what we have in stock. I’m always tempted to buy things, especially now that it’s getting colder and we have so many cute hoodies and sweatshirts. I sent my mom a couple links to my favorite options, so I’m hoping I’ll add a few more to my collection,” said Mullins.

For those who are buying gifts from home, the Bookstore has a website where you can order your goods and have them shipped to you. You also have the option to buy things online and then pick them up in store.

The Bookstore staff encourages you to look around and see if anything catches your eye. When you go home for Christmas break, wear your new gear to proudly show everyone that Hurst is home.
