BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Renovations continue on the Downing University Center at Western Kentucky University, but this fall students will get a first look inside.
The WKU Store is moving in to its new location, on the first floor of DUC across from the football stadium. Employees say the spacious and modern look to the store will better serve customers.
This week its been all hands on deck preparing for students return.
"These folks have been all summer long sticking with it . We took occupancy about a week ago. We have been trying to get the books in here first because books take priority before school starts. We are now just putting the apparel in the store," says Assistant Director of Retail Operations, Jim Sears.
Sears says the move has gone smoothly. The new WKU Store is scheduled to open in time for the university's annual new student MASTER plan.
