Sell back $125 worth of textbooks back to us and we’ll throw in a milkshake/smoothie just for giggles

Yep!  You read that right.  Stop into the SkidShop with your textbooks beginning Thursday May 5th.  Sell us your textbooks.  If your buyback value is $125 or more we will give you a coupon for a free f’real milkshake/smoothie good at the Burgess Cafe.

By the way, have you had a f”real milkshake yet?  They are awesome.

The SkidShop loves having zombies on campus

Wrong zombies dude!!  I mean, we love The Zombies.  What a great band.  But the zombies we are talking about are the walking dead type of zombie.

We are talking this kind of zombie…..

Humans vs Zombies is at Skidmore College and I absolutely love this.  I really hope that the rest of the college is enjoying this as much as I am. I just had a conversation with one of the newly infected zombies and how, when he was a human,  he almost got away from a pack of zombies but eventually was chased down and infected.  He did say he took out two zombies before going down.  He seemed pretty proud of that.  I would be too.  Don’t go down without a fight humans!

Only one can be the mayor of The SkidShop

Just an FYI folks..you may want to start checking into The SkidShop using Foursquare.  Why do you ask?  Well the person who checks in the most has the distinct honor of being the mayor of The SkidShop.  That’s why.  Plus, who knows what kind of privileges you might get for being the mayor.

I slid into work today. Icy Monday.

First off, I wanted to say I was pretty psyched to see this article in this weeks SkidNews about the Skidshop.  I mean…who doesn’t like to hear positive feedback?  Right?  So anyways…obviously it was nice to read this and it made my rainy/sleety/slippery Monday much better.

Since I have you here, I also wanted to let all of you graduating Seniors know that if you want to purchase a Skidmore Class Ring…you should do this week.  More specifically this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 5pm and 7pm.  The reason being is the rings go on sale and you can save a lot of money.  Depending on which type of metal you pick, you can save up to $200.  If you have questions, please stop into the shop on the days I listed and see me.  I’m located in the back of the SkidShop.  I’m the one with the blank stare on my face and usually listening to Superchunk.


You’re graduating this Spring?

Well if you plan on walking across the stage this spring..you’re gonna need a cap and gown.  Doesn’t matter how good you look in that suit you got at Bonobos in NYC.  You still need a cap and gown in order to walk across that stage and shake the hand of President Glotzbach.  Your order deadline is March 25.  And if for some crazy reason you can’t seem to get it all together..then a representative from Jostens will be here on March 23 and March 24 to help you get your cap and gown order set up.  Or just take the initiative and order it on your own by clicking here.

Sell back your old textbooks

Oh hi.  Do you have some old textbooks lying around your room?  You’ve probably have been using them to keep the table level or maybe as a coaster.  But there is more to those books than what you are currently using them for.  You can sell them back and get some cold hard cash.  Which would be great since the weekend is right around the corner.  Lift tickets aren’t cheap!!  Textbook buyback is going on right now in front of The SkidShop.  Bring your books and your college ID.

We gave away $250 bucks to two luck winners yesterday because they sold us their textbooks last semester

Remember when we asked all of you to sell back your textbooks to The SkidShop and in return we’d enter you into a drawing to win $250 towards your Spring textbooks?  Well we have two winners!!

Congratulations to Netta Bob and Tom Sellers.  They each received $250 in cold hard cash to help them with the cost of their Spring textbooks.

We’re getting ready!!

Hope everyone is having a great winter break.  Just wanted to let you know that we’ve been busy putting textbooks on the shelves and getting the store ready for your return.  There are few small changes in the store that we think you’ll like.  We also have some fun things planned for all of you this Spring.  Don’t forget to place your order online.  That way you won’t have to wait in lines to get your textbooks.  Just walk in, flash us your ID and walk out the door.  You can order your books by clicking here.
