Fairfield University looks to add Apple to future bookstore

Schools take advantage of retail book decline

Through an announcement, the president of Connecticut's Fairfield University has hinted at the presence of Apple in an upcoming bookstore. He explains that the school's current on-campus bookstore will soon take over a former Borders location downtown, specifically situated at 1499 Post Road. The university is said to be "in discussions with an industry leading computer retailer to have a presence in the bookstore."

The Post Road building is constructed of red brick, and should provide about 23,500 square feet. This includes two main floors and a basement level. In addition to the possible Apple presence, talks with "an internationally known coffeehouse retailer" are expected to bring a café.

While Apple's arrival at Fairfield is unconfirmed, the company is known to be extending its reach into universities. Yale University for instance is planning on occupying a former Barnes & Noble in New Haven, Connecticut, and Apple will be opening a new store in the same location. The University of Delaware announced a new bookstore in May and claimed Apple would be involved, but has not commented on the matter since.
