The University Store was created; by the Student Govern-
ment Council in January 1969. It was located in two small rooms
in the Student Activities Building. The total inventory was some-
what over $5,000 which had been provided by SGC. In August
the Store moved to the north lounge of the Michigan Union. The
$5,000 provided by SGC was augmented by a $15,000 loan
from the University. In the fall term students won acceptance of a
student-faculty controlled bookstore to be combined with the
University Store. In May of 1970 the Board for the Student Book-
store, Inc. officially assumed the assests,,the liabilities and the
control of the University Store. The capital now amounted to
$100,000 with the provision for a five dollar rolling assessment
to be collected from each student starting in the fall term of 1970.

By August 1, 1970 the Store will have moved-to the base-
anent of the Union occupying the space now- used by the Mug.
This will result in almost double the floor space of the north lounge
location. More space is anticipated in time to handle books by
the winter term.
Books will be added in January 1971, the emphasis will be
on used books, for which the student will pay less and get more,,
For the first year, the savings on new books will probably be
limited to the four per cent sales tax exemption. The savings will
be channeled into used books and supplies.

Board of Directors. The Store was created out of a desire on the
part of students for a store that would be responsive to their
needs. IT IS THE POLICY OF THE UNIVERSITY STORE TO PRO-
VIDE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES TO THE STUDENTS WHENEVER
THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE OR ARE OVERPRICED IN THE ANN
ARBOR MARKET. Toward this end, the store has done such things
as introduce the 4c Xerox copy to ci community that had been
paying 9c a copy, rented a 3 cu. ft. refrigerator for $5.00 a
month to a community that had been paying $7.00 a month for
a 21/2 cu. ft. refrigerator, and sold an artist's canvas for $9.00
that had cost $16.00. These are not exceptions, they are the rule.
What we can do.,.. is try something new...
