Until further notice, the Merriman Bookstore will be closed for retail services. We are offering a hand-picked selection of merchandise available via our “Window Shopping” access page.

What is “Window Shopping?

We know you need your Gator Gear! We’ve implemented a system to allow you virtual access to select hand-picked items from the Merriman Bookstore available for purchase directly via our website. Simply scan the QR code on the display windows to access the entire “Window Shopping” selection and match the item numbers to the website. Items can either be shipped (should you wish to send it as a gift) or checked into your campus mailbox – make sure to put your AC Box Number in the order notes.

How will I get my coursepacks?

If your class requires a physical coursepack, it will be available for purchase on our website in the “Coursepack” area. Many classes are transitioning to digital coursepacks so be sure you know which one you are looking for. As soon as a coursepack has completed printing, it will be added to the “Coursepack” area on the website – if you don’t see the one you are looking for check back in a few days or send us an email.

Can I add other merchandise to my order?

Yes! Anything available on the Merriman Bookstore website, including the regular merchandise area or coursepack area are available for shipping or campus mailbox pickup.

What about the essentials (body wash, tooth brushes, tooth paste, OTC medications, etc)?

A selection of essential items are available for purchase at the mail window. Simply ask for the specific item you are looking for and we will be happy to help.

Do you accept contactless payments?

Yes! We now accept contactless payments (Google Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, etc) for Discover, MasterCard, and Visa cards. We do not accept American Express.

How long will it take to receive something I ordered?

Orders are typically filled once per business day. You will receive a notification when your order is ready for pick up at your campus mailbox. If you are having your order shipped, it typically takes about a week to arrive after the order is filled.
