Now to be called Bookstore/Librairie Le James, the retail facility that supplies books, study materials and McGill-branded merchandise will soon set up shop in two locations: an academic-oriented store 3544 avenue du Parc, across the street from New Residence Hall, and a lifestyle-oriented shop at 680 Sherbrooke St., adjacent to the entrance of 688 Sherbrooke, in premises that used to house a copying store.
