According to Ulrich’s Bookstore’s website and Facebook page, the store reopened in a temporary site at the end of August. But it wasn’t 1202 South University, the building Launch Board Shop vacated hastily in April to make room for Ulrich’s promised May opening (Marketplace Changes, June). Instead, it’s just a table on the front lawn of an old home at 610 Church St. The website explained that “we cannot allow the public to walk into our house to pick out your own textbooks, but we will do what we can to make the process as smooth as possible. We need your schedule first and then we will find your books and you can choose to purchase or rent your textbooks after this point at the register.”
When we stopped by in mid-September, an employee under the tent out front told us that they hoped to finally move into 1202 this month.
