|Back in the 1980's, a group of friends got together to order jeans at a discounted price. From there, products were added over time to continue to help UCSD students be able to purchase things at a reasonable price. It might have all started with
some blue jeans, but add a few products here, a vinyl collection there, and 40 years later voila! You've got the awesome G-Store that you see today.
We pride ourselves by being "by the students, for the students." The General Store Co-op is a non-profit, non-hierarchical business model run exclusively by students. There are no bosses or bureaucratic strings attached (non-hierarchical), and every dollar made goes right back into the store (non-profit). We make all decisions by consensus, which means everyone has to agree before we can make any decisions!
We absolutely love our community, and are constantly striving to uphold the G-Store spirit and meet the needs of our peers and customers. Stop by for some of the cheapest prices on campus, jam on our historic piano, hang out and play a video game, or join us for one of our Nintendo tournaments or open mic nights! Please, please, please let us know if there is a product or event you'd like to see in the store! We're always open to suggestions! Click here if you have suggestions
