Cal Poly Campus Store opened in downtown Arcata
ARCATA – Located at the corner of Eighth and G Streets in Arcata, the new location sells a range of products including branded items from Cal Poly Humboldt, College of the Redwoods and local high schools; Articles inherited from Humboldt State University; household items and accessories; and Apple and Dell electronics.
The site will have the only Apple Certified Service Center in Humboldt County.
The store also offers public seating with charging outlets, as well as free Wi-Fi for students. Items can be ordered online and shipped free to the store for pickup, or can be shipped directly to customers.
Another unique feature will be space for student-made items, which will help raise funds for campus clubs.
Arcata’s location follows the Campus Store, Eureka (at 218 F St. in the Ritz building), which opened in November 2021.
Campus stores were born out of a desire to have a university presence downtown and to have the university represented at events like Arts Alive and Farmers Markets. The stores will help the University be more connected with the community and visitors, and give students a destination to visit in Eureka.
“The campus stores are a testament to the University’s pride in being part of our local community. We had the pleasure of welcoming alumni, visitors, prospective students and families to both locations,” said Todd Larsen, Senior Director of Housing Operations and Ancillary Services.
On campus, the College Creek Marketplace will continue to sell University clothing and merchandise. School supplies, including scantrons, pick-up and return of textbooks, etc.
