Bookstore won't move until March

Completion date now Dec. 22, move in March could cost bookstore about $40,000

Bookstore officials announced yesterday that they will move into their new facility during spring break, after learning that construction crews won't be finished with the building until Dec. 22.

"We will stay here in the main store until spring break, in March, to minimize the impact of the move on students and to take pressure off our staff," said Frank Farias, director of the U of A Bookstore.

Employees have already taken apart textbook shelving and removed counters in the basement of the existing facility in preparation for the move. The combination of rebuilding shelves and counters plus lost revenues could cause the bookstore to lose up to $40,000, Farias said.

Gilbert Davidson, assistant project manager for the new student union and bookstore, said it is unclear who will pay for the losses.
