WMU Bookstore is now 'Buster's'
June 10, 2010
KALAMAZOO--The WMU Bookstore on the main floor of the Bernhard Center at Western Michigan University has been renamed "Buster's," in honor of the school mascot, Buster Bronco.
The name change was made to help reduce confusion about where textbooks may be purchased. For several years, textbooks and other course materials have been sold at Textbook Alley on the lower level of the Bernhard Center.
Buster's will continue to carry all of the same kinds of products previously associated with the WMU Bookstore, notably clothing, sportswear, gifts and souvenirs. TotalTech, which specializes in computers and other electronic products, will remain at its present location inside Buster's.
Temporary signs reflecting the name change are in place. Permanent signs will be installed by fall semester in time for a yet-to-be scheduled grand opening.
