WILLIAMSBURG-Classes may be back in session for students at College of William & Mary, but the student bookstore has not yet reopened in its new location on Prince George Street.

The bookstore, which is operated by Barnes & Noble College, announced in the spring of 2021 its plans to close its doors on Duke of Gloucester Street in Merchants Square and relocate to the Triangle Building on Prince George Street. At the time of the announcement, the store was expected to reopen in June 2021 ahead of the fall semester.

The decision was made to move the bookstore in part to allow for easier access for students. A spokesperson for William & Mary said the bookstore will not open now until late fall. An exact date has not been announced.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
