Following the announcement last year that Unibooks would no longer continue trading, Flinders University have secured a replacement in bookstore The Co-op, a provider to approximately 20 universities throughout Australia.
Unibooks’ last day of trade at their Flinders store will be 8 April 2016. The Co-op will commence from the same location in the last week of April, coinciding with the end of the mid-semester break.
The Co-op has a strong online presence and have undertaken to make their Flinders outlet available as a collection point for orders. They will also be looking to provide limited services to Sturt, Tonsley and FMC as part of their operations.
Flinders have requested Co-op to provide a service that aligns as much as possible with the Unibooks model to allow a smooth transition for students and staff.
