Due to staffing (student and full-time) shortages and supply chain disruptions/delays, the Illini Union Retail operations will temporarily reduce operational hours and adjust special order processes, beginning Mon., Oct. 18, 2021.

This decision was made after careful assessment of retail operations to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and to more effectively meet customer needs. 

Temporary adjustments in days and hours of operation:

Bookstore Building hours
Mon-Fri: 8:30am-5:30pm
Sat: 11am-4pm
Sunday: closed 

Starbucks @ the Bookstore
Mon-Fri: 7:30am-4:30pm
Sat: 11am-4pm
Sun: closed

Starbucks Illini Union – starting October 11
Everyday: 7am-6pm

Tech Zone
Mon-Fri: 9am-5pm
Sat/Sun: closed

Adjustments to special orders from departments

  • Custom ordered items (apparel, gifts, etc.) will not be processed/accepted for the foreseeable future as the supply chain and the ordering processes have severe delays, with some materials never being delivered.
  • Departmental in-store purchases/orders will need to be received two (2) weeks in advance and must be purchased using a p-card used instead of a CFOPAL number. No walk-in departmental sales will be accepted without a p-card.
