Follett Operating the Wildcat Store

The Associated Students (AS) is very pleased to announce and welcome a new member to our family and the campus community: Follett.  Effective July 1 of this year, Follett assumed the management and operation of the Chico State Wildcat Store.

As the leading provider of campus store services and the foremost supplier of course materials throughout the United States and Canada, Follett has been serving the education needs of colleges, universities, high schools, elementary schools and libraries since 1873. With a deep focus on both access and affordability, Follett brings new technologies, retail practices and forward-looking solutions to all corners of the educational marketplace. No other company in the industry is investing in its future in a way that compares to Follett.

In addition to management of the physical bookstore location, Follett will also operate the University’s online store – providing a door to expanded access, choice and convenience via the nation’s largest online textbook and spirit shop portal,

Follett’s breadth and scope of experiences is evidenced by their current client list that includes other California State Universities counting Humboldt State, San Francisco State, CSU Bakersfield, Channel Islands, Dominguez Hills, East Bay, Northridge, Sacramento, San Bernardino and San Marcos.

Follett thrives on a service culture that focuses on the customer and their lifelong journey in education. Their goal and commitment to campus is to deliver an exceptional shopping experience, both online and in-store, that truly enhances the mission, brand and image of CSU, Chico.

The AS is confident that Follett’s commitment to service, innovative systems and technologies, and financial standing, combined with their highly customized approach to managing campus stores, will provide the Chico State community with exceptional store operations.
