Northeast Mississippi Community College’s bookstore is making the adjustment back to college for the spring semester a little easier.
For the first two weeks of the 2013 spring semester, management at the bookstore has extended the hours in order to better serve students.
Northeast’s bookstore usually opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. Monday through Friday but with extended hours the bookstore will now stay open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Extending to a 12-hour day is not the only change happening at the bookstore as management has also decided to open the bookstore on weekends.
Northeast’s bookstore will now be open from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sundays until January 18.
Regular bookstore hours will resume on January 19.
With the extended hours, Northeast patrons will also have a chance to partake in Starbucks coffee, as the Starbucks coffee shop located inside the bookstore will also observe the extended hours.
Northeast’s bookstore is located on the first floor of the Haney Union on the Booneville campus.
