The Campus Store sells books, school and art supplies, greeting cards, computer software and supplies, electronics, CDs and DVDs, clothing, and specialty goods. The Campus Store operates the Green Bean Café, Daily Grind Café, and the convenience store, which offers snacks, grocery items, and health & beauty items.
The Campus Store offers course books at the lowest price possible and stocks all required and supplemental reading materials requested by the faculty. Textbook prices are established by the publishers and are subject to change without notice. The Campus Store stocks a large number of used books which are sold at 75% of the new price. All texts are returned to the publisher approximately one month after the beginning of the semester unless the faculty member requests that they be held for the following semester. The average student spends approximately $400 - $500 on textbooks each semester. You can also visit the Campus Store online at http://www.smcmbooks.com/.
