Stanford Store to open on Parents’ Weekend

The Stanford Store, a division of Stanford Student Enterprises (SSE) is on schedule to open at its new location at the former site of the Stanford Ticket Office on Feb. 24. SSE proposed the move last May as a response to lackluster sales at the store’s current location behind Tresidder Union.

“Construction is on track,” said SSE chief executive Raj Bhandari M.S. ’10 in an e-mail to The Daily.

The store is planning a Valentine’s Day sale at its current location to “open up inventory space for new items for the new store,” said Bhandari. The installation of a student-designed “light pendant” will cap the project next week, he added.

Store manager Olivia Witter ’13 said staff will be moving items into the new store “in the near future.” The store is a student-run venture whose revenue goes to the ASSU.

The Stanford Department of Project Management is overseeing the move, estimated to cost around $297,000.
