The UA Bookstores will reopen its store in McKale Center on Friday.

The A-Store at McKale is having its grand opening today after extensive renovations. It used to be called the “McKale Sports Stop.”

During the grand opening, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, free Pinkberry will be given out in addition to other giveaways.

This is the bookstores’ fifth A-Store, after the one in the Marshall Building opened Aug. 18. The A-Store at Main Gate replaces the Arizona Bookstore, which was not UA owned.

The Main Gate store sells clothing, computers and textbooks.

The two new A-Stores join the A-Stores at the Tucson Mall, Park Place Mall and UA Downtown. UA Bookstores now has five stores on campus, the Student Union bookstore, the medical bookstore, McKale, Main Gate and Wildcat Threads in the Student Recereation Center.

On the Fridays before home football games, the store will continue its traditional “Bear Down Sale”, which is 25 percent off of most UA items and general books. The sale is only at the Student Union bookstore and the Main Gate A-Store.
