Fairfield University’s president has announced that his school’s bookstore will be moving off campus, and that “an industry leading computer retailer” will have a presence in the new digs. The store will occupy a former Borders’ location on Post Road which covers about 23,500 square-feet on two levels plus a basement.
While Fairfield presiden Rev. Jeffrey von Arx didn’t mention Apple by name, other American schools have made similar moves. The University of Delaware recently announced its plans to host an Apple storefront, while plans from Fairfield’s Connecticut neighbor Yale show a similar arrangement.
Good luck to Fairfield and here’s hoping their plans pan out. If you’re a student who spies a little bit ‘o Apple around the store, please let us know.
