University Bookstore announces holiday specials

Deck the halls and start your holiday shopping Nov. 1820 in person at the University of Maine Bookstore, and online until Dec. 18. The annual holiday sale features special discounts, unique gift options, holiday cards and wrapping paper for purchase, and daily flash sales on select UMaine clothing.

Nov. 1820, shoppers who spend $25 in the store will receive a free, limited edition ornament while supplies last. Tech Center customers will receive a $50 University Bookstore gift card with the purchase of select Apple products. 

Online UMaine Bookstore shoppers can take advantage of flash sales and be entered into a drawing for one of five prizes with any order. The winners will be announced Dec. 21. 

The store will also host Tinsel Tuesday online on Dec. 15. Customers who bring three non-perishable items from the list below to donate to the Black Bear Exchange will receive a voucher for 30% off one regular priced item. 

Eligible food donations include three boxes of macaroni and cheese, one jar of nut butter or peanut butter, one jar of jam or jelly, one box of cereal, one container of oatmeal, and one can of tuna fish. Products must be donated at the University Bookstore during regular business hours to receive the discount voucher, which will be valid through Dec. 31.
