Well, the Northern Illinois University Bookstore can help.
The bookstore, located on the first floor of the Holmes Student Center, has the latest in NIU logo apparel and gifts featuring the new university logo marks.
“The NIU bookstore is a great place to shop for an NIU student or fan,” manager Don Turk says. “We have the latest selection of NIU merchandise, everything from coffee mugs and pennants to caps, sweatshirts and outdoor wear, including winter wear. “
Additionally, fans can celebrate NIU’s 2011 Mid-American Conference football championship with official MAC champion gear that includes hats, T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Those make perfect gifts, Turk says.
“We had a lot of interest in MAC champion apparel following the Huskies’ historic win over Ohio,” Turk says. “We are expecting more championship inventory in the next couple days. We are always getting new items – both with athletics and university marks – so we encourage people to keep checking in with us.”
The university bookstore is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Tuesday, Dec. 20, closing for NIU’s winter break from Wednesday, Dec. 21, through Tuesday, Jan. 2.
However, the satellite store located in NIU’s Convocation Center is open during Huskie men’s and women’s basketball games.
