Barnes & Noble—the vendor for the Ferris State University Bookstore—made the difficult decision to close the physical operations of the Kendall Bookstore in KCAD’s 17 Fountain St. Building in July of 2020 due to reduced foot traffic and usage over the last several years.

However, the Ferris State University Bookstore through Barnes & Noble remains committed to providing the same great service to the KCAD community online, ensuring that courseware needs will continue to be met.
