Shopping for UC Davis merchandise is much more convenient as the UC Davis Stores opened its newest location in the heart of downtown Davis. The 4,200-square-foot store opened in June 2011 at the southwest corner of Second and F streets.
The store is tailored for downtown shoppers, offering a mix of gifts, apparel and convenience items. Core offerings include Aggie Pride wear, UC Davis and City of Davis branded souvenirs and gift merchandise, plus a variety of fare including a complete line of school and office supplies, greeting cards, sundries, and convenience items.
The UC Davis Downtown Store conveys a sense of the university in décor and offerings, featuring the official blue and gold colors and products that present the full spectrum of the UC Davis experience. It also showcases products from the university’s new “Good Life Collection” for example, which includes items that highlight UC Davis’ tradition of improving our everyday experience from the food we eat to the integration of art and culture in our lives.
Our “Campus Grown” line of products emphasizes the sustainability mindset of UC Davis. This line includes UC Davis Olive Oil and new olive oil body products – olive oil based soaps and facial products made from olives harvested from trees on campus. Campus-grown products also include handcrafted wooden bowls, utensils, vases, and cutting boards made from UC Davis trees that required rigorous pruning or removal for health and safety reasons.
The downtown store is the third largest of seven University Stores and the group’s first new store since the 2004 addition of the ARC Pro Shop, which is located in the Activities and Recreation Center on campus.
