Shoppers at the Hillsdale College Bookstore can now charge their phone, while making their purchases.
In August, the bookstore began selling phone chargers, speakers, and portable batteries from a new On Hand kiosk. The kiosk also features complimentary phone chargers and shower speakers shoppers can use while browsing the aisles.
Bookstore supplies manager Lori Pietruszka said the kiosk benefits bookstore patrons and expands the shop’s technology product selection.
“We’ve always carried a little bit of that in our electronics aisle, but when I saw the kiosk, I thought it would be perfect for the students and whoever else that comes in here and needs to charge their phone,” Pietruszka said.
Pietruszka ordered the kiosk from a software and electronics vendor with whom the bookstore already does business.
Several people have bought items from the kiosk, Pietruszka said. She added that the bookstore has a 15 percent discount on any On Hand product through Friday.
