IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT YOUR CONSIGNMENT

Hello SUBtext consigners,

Our store is now re-open for in-store purchases and consignment. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have new safety measures in place, such as one-way aisles, plexiglass barriers, and increased cleaning schedules, and staff-served slushies. At this time we are only accepting debit, Visa, and Mastercard (no cash). Because we put students first, we have extended all books that should have expired from March 15- September 30, 2020 for an additional 6 months, and will honour all consignment sales from before our closure in March. Please remember that we cannot contact you regarding the status of your account, but you can email us at subtext@uvss.ca. We have also used this time off to update our consignment system, meaning we now have a database of all books in-store (so we can help you find what you need faster). You can call us to place an order for pick-up at (250) 721-8810, or come in to browse our shelves.

We look forward to seeing you in-store soon!

SERVICES

Consignment books, iclickers, model kits, rock cleaning kits:

Low-cost novels, graphic novels / comics, poetry collections, non-fiction, other non-textbook books and party games (also consignment items, so you can feel good about supporting your community while you take a break from school-related readings)

FREE board game rentals:

Leave your ONEcard with us and play for as long as you’d like! Talk to us if you’re looking to rent games outside of our normal store hours or if you want multiple games for clubs-related activities.

On-campus stop for Coke drink products and Monster, Red Bull, and Yerba Mate.

Tonnes of snacks, including an ever-growing amount of dietary-conscious products (and if we don’t have what you’re looking for, ask us and we will try to bring it in!)

Local artwork–jewellery, accessories, prints, cards, mugs, keychains, candles, buttons, stickers, pins, and more! Our selection changes often, so check in-store for current designs and products. Are you an artist? Contact us to sell your artwork at SUBtext!

INTERESTED IN SELLING YOUR WORK WITH US?

Come to our store with samples of your artwork, and we will collaborate to work on a fair deal. We might want to buy your artwork (typical for pinback buttons and stickers), or we can arrange a consignment system that allows you to swap out your stock more easily. We can’t wait to see what you make!

SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

DID YOU KNOW?

SUBtext is a not-for-profit, meaning that the money we make goes toward paying student staff or supporting initiatives from advocacy groups. 75% of all consignment sales and 70% of all locally made artwork goes directly to the student / artist.
