    As some of you may have noticed, the DSU shop has gone and closed down, seemingly forever and ever and ever. I for one am very very upset about this, where am I going to get a Pick'N'Mix now!?!?! And lab books, I'm struggling to find anywhere to get one cheap online.

    Anyway, I started this thread so we can all reminice about the amazing times we've had in that shop, like the time I... erm... bought something.

    Also, does anybody have any more information on why its closed and whether there's going to be a replacement?

    Good point about lab books, I hadn't thought about that. That's actually kinda important...

    They seem pretty good replacements, not sure if there are cheaper out there though.

    Maybe they'll let us use double sided lined books, since nobody draws graphs nowadays anyway

    I'm still hoping that's a misprint and meant to say 'over the past year' :P I'm asking my DSU contacts as we speak...

    It has indeed closed forever. The Howlands one will remain open, but run by the university, not the DSU =) Also, the Asian noodles are AMAZING [and cheap @ 40p]!

    wrt the newspapers some have vouchers you can get to get discounted prices anywhere. I'm not sure who does and doesn't, but it's worth a look.
