The purpose of the bookstores is to work with each teaching faculty member to obtain a list of required and recommended textbooks and supplies for each class offered by the University and to provide these items for sale in the store. The bookstores also offer a growing selection of health science reference books and equipment, a variety of school and office supplies, greeting cards, imprinted clothing and souvenir items, and a small line of food items and sundries. Their primary goal is to offer excellent customer-oriented service to all members of the Midwestern University community and to be a resource whenever possible to these individuals. The bookstores may buy back textbooks at any time throughout the year, subject to salability determined by current market demand. The bookstore has exclusive rights to sell books and approved merchandise to MWU students, faculty and staff. Selling of books or merchandise that is typically sold in the MWU Bookstore by students for purposes of fundraising or other purposes is prohibited unless previously arranged with the bookstore.
The campus bookstore is located on the upper level of The Commons on the Downers Grove Campus and on the west side of the Barrel III building on the Glendale Campus. These bookstores are owned and operated by Matthews Bookstores.
