Amazon Launches Second Online Campus Bookstore
Purdue University students can now buy and pick up items through Amazon's new online store (via NPR). It's the second store of its kind, with the first one opening at UC Davis earlier this year.
According to Publishers Weekly, this second Amazon co-branded online school store will offer staffed on-campus pickup and drop off services at Purdue. The college's president, Mitch Daniels, reportedly told the publication this online store and on-campus pickup location will help make college costs more affordable for students.
The Purdue Student Store on Amazon allows students to buy and rent textbooks as well as other merchandise.
"[T]his new way of doing business has the potential to change the book-buying landscape for students and their families,” said Daniels.
