Since last semester, there has been an ongoing construction of Taylor’s new campus store. The new campus store is hoped to be completed the week after the class of 2019’s graduation. Stephen Richardson, area manager of Tree of Life (TOL) Bookstores, said that all of the details and exact dates of the building construction have not been finalized yet.

The old campus store will be home to the Boren Western Art collection.

According to Ron Sutherland, special assistant to the president, the University Press and Post Office will be moved into the upcoming campus building.

“The move of the campus store to this space will free up space in the dome to help with providing a home for the Boren Western Art collection,” Sutherland said.

Sutherland also said that the new campus store will be beneficial to students by bringing the campus store, University Press and Post Office together. He expressed that the current Post Office and Press building is run down and in need of replacement.

In a conversation about Starbucks or what value or disvalue it may bring to campus, Richardson expressed his excitement about the possibility of the hospitality a Starbucks coffee shop can bring to Taylor’s campus.

“I’m also encouraged by the way accomplished companies can inspire a spirit of innovation in the communities where they invest.” Richardson said.

Richardson said that he is excited about the construction of the new campus building, and he likes partnering with Taylor University and anticipates the completion of the campus store.
