Anyone working at or visiting College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Nampa Campus Academic Building this fall will notice several changes to the first floor. The CWI Bookstore, operated by Follett, has closed its Academic Building location to consolidate resources to the Micron Center for Professional Technical Education. The change will allow CWI to re-dedicate the space to Student Life moving forward.

Recognizing a need to replace the Bookstore’s food service at the Academic Building, CWI is pleased to announce a self-service food and vending market is being installed in the first-floor common area. The service, operated by Canteen, is currently being offered at CWI’s Ada County Campus. The market offers a variety of items, including fresh food. The micro-market concept is based on an honor system of payment where customers access items out of machines and pay at a kiosk. The kiosks accept cash, debit and credit cards, and Paypal accounts. There are security cameras in the area to monitor payment.

Canteen is aiming to have the new market installed and operational by the first week of August.
