Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore
"Built in 1998, the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, proudly managed by Follett Higher Education Group, is located in the Eck Center. Offering 65,000 square feet of retail space to members of the Notre Dame community, the store supplies textbooks, trade books, gift items and apparel, including the full line of Notre Dame Under Armour gear. Always looking to expand its services, the store added the Hammes Hub, an authorized Apple store, and Einstein Bros Bagels.
A central meeting place for campus visitors, the Bookstore is full of Irish spirit throughout the year, especially on home football weekends. Celebrated Notre Dame authors come in to sign books and musical groups perform guests' favorite Irish tunes. The Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore is truly a one-stop shop for all things Notre Dame."
Notre Dame has its very own weekly garage sale! It's called ND Surplus. The Surplus Store is open to the public on Wednesdays and Thursdays and offers everything from furniture to print cartridges at ridiculously affordable prices. It’s a way for the University to practice sustainability while providing resources for the community. Visit the ND Surplus Website for hours, location, and inventory information.

The Notre Dame Clearance Center is located at 1610 N. Ironwood Drive in South Bend and is a discount retail store for ND apparel, collectibles, and gifts that is open between football seasons. And as a bonus, if you’re eligible for a staff discount at the Bookstore, you can use the same discount at the Clearance Center on top of the already great savings.
