Amazon@UC Davis and the Campus Store are in a festive mood! Both are in their new homes in the Memorial Union, and both have special events this Friday (Sept. 16): grand opening at Amazon and big sale at the Campus Store.

The Amazon store is brand-new — a secure, convenient location for Amazon order pickup (in lockers) and free returns. Drop in any time Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., for demonstrations and to learn how you can get free, same-day pickup on Amazon orders, with Amazon Prime or Amazon Prime Student membership. The celebration also will include giveaways (no purchase necessary).

Amazon@UC Davis hours: 9 a.m.-9 p.m. weekdays and noon-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The Campus Store, meanwhile, will have a one-day sale, featuring discounts of up to $200 on Apple computers (on top of the educational discount), 25 percent off UC Davis-branded apparel, and 20 percent off gifts, office supplies, general books, boutique items and more. The store also plans prize giveaways.

Campus Store summer hours (through this weekend): 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays, and noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Starting next week: 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays, and noon-5 p.m. Saturday.
