Barnes & Noble celebrating expansion Friday


Following a renovation over the summer break, the Barnes & Noble at Mississippi State University bookstore will host a day of celebration on Friday, Sept. 7, starting at 9 a.m.

Located across the street from Davis Wade Stadium on B.S. Hood Drive, the bookstore boasts an expanded MSU Spirit Shop for official Bulldog clothing, a new Adidas concept shop, more spirit gifts, and the legendary Mississippi State cowbells that are rung at every game.

"The expansion of the MSU Spirit Shop will be very popular,” Manager Cecilia “Cecy” Brooks said. “Gamedays are such big events at Mississippi State. Alumni, students and the local community gather on campus to tailgate, attend the football game and make a day of being on campus. We’re thrilled that we can offer even more Bulldog spirit, right here on our campus.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the expansion is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. with Athletic Director Scott Stricklin and Vice President for Student Affairs Bill Kibler. In addition, there will be entertainment, refreshments, samples, give-aways and a local author symposium.
