NC State Bookstores has been the official bookstore of NC State University since 1954. The main store, temporarily located on the ground floor of Harrelson Hall on the Brickyard, offers an extensive selection of course materials, school supplies, computer products and Wolfpack memorabilia.

Our biggest accomplishment in recent years has been to provide our students with a price comparison tool built into MyPack Portal. Here, they can purchase or rent textbooks in the store or online, compare pricing with other major competitors, and look up the value of a textbook at buy back.

We recently opened The Pack Shop in the new Wolf Ridge Complex on Centennial Campus and established a permanent “State Stuff” section in the Eye Store at the PNC Arena. We continue to maintain our game-day “State Stuff” stores on the concourse and at home football games at Carter-Finley Stadium.

We are preparing to move into the new Talley Student Union in Spring 2015. Our two-level, 40,000-square-foot store will feature textbooks and course materials on the ground floor. Upstairs, we’ll offer an expanded Apple(r) section, a Clinique(r) counter, and a wide selection of Wolfpack merchandise and school supplies.


  • Last year we helped more than 9,500 students save an estimated $1.7 million by renting 19,688 textbooks online and in-store instead of having to purchase.
  • Coupled with dynamic pricing (an online model that adjusts prices based on demand and market value to yield the lowest possible price), students saved almost $2 million.
  • Anthony Sanders, associate director, won the University Award of Excellence in 2013 for his role in implementing textbook cost-saving initiatives.
