Telfer Store Initiative
was launched around 2008, shortly after the School of Management was renamed to the Telfer School of Management. The Telfer Store was established to promote the School by making the brand available to students and alumni at a reasonable cost. The store was never intended to be revenue generating, but rather a cost recovery effort. In fact, the School has not increased the price of its Telfer Store items since its inception over 10 years ago, and they have always priced their items lower than uOttawa branded merchandise.
The current store operates year-round during business hours. Clients can purchase items in-person or online. The annual sales volume of the store is approximately $8,000.
The store will be operating on an annual basis. Each year, clubs will have the opportunity to fill out the application form for the Telfer Store. From the applications submitted, three clubs will be selected for an interview by Telfer faculty members. From there, the chosen club will oversee the store. The selected club will be in charge as of May 1st, 2020 until April 30th, 2021.
Here is your opportunity to explain in the application form the plan, strategy and the vision of your ideal Telfer Store.
