Move away from outsourced bookstore

    Thanks for all who will take the time to read and provide some guidance.  We are exploring moving to a self-op ran store and going the virtual route with our textbook offering here on campus.  We have around 2,000 undergrads, with 90% of those living on campus.  We are wanting to take over the space for more retail and do away with all of the shelving for texts.  Has anyone recently made the switch one way or another that could provide some insight?  We are currently outsourced with one of the major service providers - Follett.

    Thanks.
