You’ve been thinking about getting a snack all day. You walk into Reed, down the stairs, past the mailboxes, and you are at the Williston Campus Store. For many students at Williston, they walk in mindlessly, only thinking about getting some M&Ms or a package. But there is so much more to the Campus Store.

Jane Hannigan runs the Campus store, and has been with the school since replying to an ad in the newspaper in 2007. Prior to coming to Williston, Hannigan worked with Neiman Marcus.

Hannigan does much more than sell snacks.

“I am always preparing for the next event and also staying ahead of potential stock issues,” said Hannigan, who works alongside Ms. Carolyn Ketcham. “I also meet with vendors and different departments, always researching possible items. I do all of this while I am helping students with purchases, outgoing shipments, or whatever they need during the class changes.”

Hannigan also manages the school store website, the stock, and the online book site where all students buy their books for English and History classes. She also works alongside the bookstore to make the end of the year book buyback system run smoothly.

Everyone is always Williston apparel, and the campus store always has an abundance of new and improved gear, updated regularly.

“We always try to have the best of the new gear in the fall,” Hannigan said. She added that apparel and other related Williston gear is a hit during family weekend and around the holidays.

While sweatshirts, hats, and sweatpants are in fashion now, Hannigan said the store’s top selling items have changed in accordance with changing styles.

“What was popular one year may not have been popular the next year,” she said. “Back when I first started, the most popular things that people bought were paper planners and allowance.”

Styles have certainly changed: allowance is now online with our Sammy Cards and we have planners on our Surface in OneNote.

The campus store was also the go-to spot for this year’s prom; the store sold tickets and flowers, and accommodated hundreds of students smoothly with Hannigan’s help.

“It was really easy to get my prom ticket with Ms. Hannigan,” said recent alum Gabby Monaco’ 17. “She made it super quick and not stressful at all. I walked in, there was a long line, and I thought it was going to be stressful, but they knew what they were doing and helped everyone super quick and then I was out of there before my next class.”

Though times have changed from paper planners to OneNote organizers, the Campus Store is always a worthwhile visit.
