Bookstores are Open
All in-person bookstore locations are open for supply shopping and order pickup (bookstore hours are in the "Contact Us" section on this page). You still need to buy all your textbooks online on the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore at Central Piedmont website.
Curbside pickup is available at the Cato and Central Campuses. For all campuses besides Central Campus, you can only pick up books at that campus for classes held on that campus; all other pickups should be made at Central Campus.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Barnes & Noble is experiencing delivery delays from its publishers that may impact textbook deliveries. The bookstore is processing all textbook orders as quickly as possible in the order in which they were received. Choosing a faster shipping option will only reduce the shipping time after processing, it will not reduce the processing time for your order. Please allow five business days for your order to be processed; then, your shipping method will apply. Log in to your B & N account to view order statuses for your deliveries.
