Neebo Inc. awarded contract to operate Coastal Carolina bookstore

Coastal Carolina University’s bookstore, the Chanticleer Store, will be operated by Neebo Inc. beginning March 12. The holding company of Nebraska Book Company Inc., an industry leader in college books and merchandise, Neebo was selected as the preferred management company for CCU’s bookstore after a comprehensive request-for-proposals process. An official grand re-opening is planned for April 14.

“Coastal Carolina University is enthusiastic about Neebo assuming responsibility for the Chanticleer Store, which carries books, apparel and other supplies,” says Sandy Baldridge, senior manager of contractual and business services at Coastal Carolina University.

Neebo offers a range of services that will benefit students, according to Baldridge. These include comprehensive textbook rentals and a Best Price Promise, which refunds the full difference in price if a student finds the exact textbook for a lower price either online or in another store. Neebo also provides a convenient e-commerce platform for online purchases and offers competitive prices for apparel, supplies and gifts.

Baldridge said the company’s focus on customer service complements CCU’s Feel the Teal program, a campuswide service initiative.

“In today’s market, students have so many options as to where they can purchase their books,” says Gwen Clancy, senior vice president of college stores at Neebo. “College bookstores need to step up with an effective strategy to win over guests with service and solutions that are in sync with students’ rising expectations.” Neebo has been in operation almost 100 years and owns or operates more than 200 stores nationally.

Students can purchase or rent textbooks on the bookstore website beginning March 10. Books will be available for in-store pickup when the store opens on March 17.
