GPRC is currently home to two bookstores that support our students, faculty and staff in Fairview and Grande Prairie. In 2013 Follett of Canada took over responsibility for the day-to-day operations and service delivery at our two locations.
Follett has recently announced their intention to close the Fairview Bookstore location on April 30, 2021. This is an independent business decision and GPRC is committed to ensuring as little disruption as possible.
- Bookstore Model Review
As we look to evolve and improve, the College has established a Bookstore Review Committee comprised of faculty and student representatives. Over the coming weeks and months this group will be examining and evaluating the current GPRC Bookstore model and services compared to other models, and providing recommendations for the future. We look forward to an outcome that will better serve our learning committee.
- Interim Arrangements
Follett will continue to serve our students in Fairview through the online bookstore for course materials, supplies, gifts and GPRC apparel. We will evaluate next steps for how an on-campus presence will look, as part of the bookstore review. Please check back here often to find the latest news and instructions.
