Clarkson University's bookstore on campus was
bought out by Barnes & Noble a few years ago.
Once the company took over, the entire staff from
the former store was either let go or quit.
After students witnessed prices increase due
new management, they called for
The change came in the shape of an alternative
bookstore completely out of the controlling grasp
of Barnes & Noble.
The alternative store received government loans
and private funding to get them going.
The new bookstore opened with prices around 15%
less than the established store.
In response, the Barnes & Noble store cut their
prices up to 40%. Not only are they doing well
financially, but the owner is happy to be helping
out the students' pocketbooks.
Now, the Penn State system bookstores have been
bought out by the very same over-pricing
company, Barnes & Noble.
When students need books and have only one place
to buy them, that store can rape them for every
penny the students have.
Are we students being controlled
that renders us almost powerless?
When we want to buy sneakers we can go to several
stores and shop comparatively. Why can't we have
the same freedom with our books?
To gain freedom we need to take action.
From the students, we need support.
From our alumni, we need help, both with finances
Together, we can make a difference to this campus
and future students.
