Starting late this summer, Turtle Creek Bookstore will be adding a splash of purple to its color scheme. Bookstore Manager Peter Fronk says the college bookstore - which, as its sign points out, also serves the greater Beloit community - was just approved to begin carrying Beloit Memorial High School swag.
The bookstore will start small, with various violet-hued Purple Knights apparel and gifts. Turtle Creek will transition the bookstore’s community conference room space (which faces Grand Avenue) into the high school’s retail space. As a result, the number of Buccaneer and college items won’t decrease—they'll just have more company, Fronk says.
Expect to see purple appearing in the storefront windows in August.
