The College’s SUNY Broome Bookstore & Campus Shop will be switching vendors in the coming weeks. Effective in July, Barnes and Noble College will take over operations in place of the existing vendor, Follett, as the new provider for textbooks, course materials, and spirit shop merchandise. The College and both vendors are working closely and collaboratively to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible for our students, faculty and staff.

The transition will begin this week, with Wednesday, June 26 being Follett’s last day open to the public. From June 27 – July 1, the campus store will be closed to the public, however, Follett store manager, Spencer Grenfell, will be available via phone call or email during normal summer operating hours. Follett’s summer hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The phone number to the campus store is 607-724-0696. We thank Follett for the service they have provided to our campus community.

The Bookstore & Campus Shop will be closed to the public from July 2 – 14 to allow Barnes and Noble College time to arrive and prepare for operations, however, Barnes and Noble will be available via phone and email to assist in preparation for the second summer session. Beginning July 8, Barnes and Noble College staff will be available in limited capacity as setup continues. The new store is scheduled to reopen on July 15. Regional Manager Bob Puma may be reached at or 716-984-6207.

We know how critical it is for students to have adequate time to secure their academic materials before the semester begins. Please be assured that Barnes and Noble College staff are fully prepared to handle all summer session needs virtually until they are fully settled in the physical space.

Barnes and Noble College is a highly reputable company and will be a fantastic addition to our campus. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this transitional period. We look forward to you experiencing our new and improved Bookstore & Campus shop in just a few short weeks!
