    UNMC Bookstore & C-Store Pickups

    We use a warehouse fulfillment center for all online orders so it could take up to 2 business days to process, package and transport your order to the Bookstore or C-Store. You'll receive a notification email when your item is available for pickup at your chosen location. Please wait for this email before coming to get your package.

    You will need to bring your valid government-issued photo ID and Web Order Number. You may designate another person to pickup your order. They must have the Web Order Number and a valid government-issued photo ID.

    Orders placed after 12 PM Friday through Sunday are typically ready Monday afternoon.

    Shipping & Delivery

    Web orders generally ship in 1-2 business days, but during our peak months -August, December, January, and June processing & shipping time could take longer. Delivery times vary according to your delivery address, availability of your items, and the time of day you place your order.

    Ships Time

    The 'Ships' time is an estimate of when the item will leave our warehouse. For example, if an item displays "Ships in 1 business day" the item will leave our warehouse 1 business day after you place your order. While we work hard to ship every order as quickly as possible, certain times of the year may have longer ship times.


    We ship to businesses, residences, PO Boxes, military bases, and international residences outside the United States.
