Something New in Store

     Shorecrest’s Centennial has truly sparked change on campus. In light of a hundred years of the Charger community, Shorecrest opened its first School Store. 

     At the debut School Store, there is an array of available merchandise such as snacks and school supplies. All of these products can be purchased by the Shorecrest community during operation hours, Monday to Friday, 11 a.m.–4:30 p.m. School Store Manager and mother of sophomore Alex Cirino, Cayce Cirino manages the store everyday.

     Cayce Cirino said, “For years, the Shorecrest community has wanted an on-campus store for needs ranging from snacks to school supplies.” Shorecrest administration responded to these requests with the grand opening of the store this past August.

     This new addition to Shorecrest offers a shopping solution for academic and lifestyle needs.  The store is located on the bottom level of Charger Commons. Charger Commons is a hub for life on campus, central to academics, community gathering, and campus itself. This space is conveniently perched to the left of a popular pathway when Upper Schoolers cross campus. 

     The School Store also offers a wide variety of Shorecrest-brand clothing and accessories, available in youth and adult sizes, which satisfies the Shorecrest population’s hunger for merchandise. Cirino explained how, prior to the store, parents struggled to find and purchase Shorecrest products. Previously, merchandise was sold in a clunky, online system or sporadically at pop-up events or athletic events. Either way, there was no consistent and convenient way to buy Shorecrest merchandise. 

     Beyond the retail aspect, the store provides an additional hub for Shorecrest life. Many students hang out in the store with their friends during breaks or after school. Senior Adelaide Oman said, “the school store has to be my favorite part of Shorecrest.” 

     Cirino corroborated that sentiment. She said, “Everyone is so nice and so polite” and elaborated on the opportunity the store provides for connection with students, faculty, and parents.
