In August a new IT shop, Blupeach, will be opening its doors on the Cissie Gool Plaza on upper campus.
Staff and students will be able to buy IT goods and software for their personal use, leveraging the huge buying power of ICTS to offer highly competitive pricing and educational discounts on many items.
It will be run by a vendor who was selected following a tender process led by ICTS and the Finance Department. The vendor currently supplies some of the largest computer retailers in South Africa, and will thus be able to offer students frequent specials, as well as items such as shop-soiled merchandise and shop demo models at near-cost price.
Initially proposed as a means to support the Student Laptop Initiative, the shop will act as an order and pickup point for the initiative, and will have all the models on show for customers to try out before buying.
In addition to sales, the vendor will offer basic installation of any components purchased; and a technical specialist will offer advice and assist in facilitating repairs.
The shop will be open in normal business hours during the week, and will be open during vac periods. Details regarding the launch date and launch specials will be posted on the ICTS website.
