The College gains a long-awaited presence on King Street.

Formerly Barton’s Gift Shop, 327 King will soon be converted into “The College Corner,” a high-end gift shop – for alumni, current students and their parents, and visitors to Charleston.

The new store will have three windows on George Street and the interior will be reminiscent of an old shop with exposed bricks on the wall. The entire building will be painted a beautiful gray. Eventually, the College plans to re-open the original entrance to the Sottile – located under the marquee.

Unlike the Barnes & Noble bookstore on Calhoun Street, The College Corner will sell items such as golf shirts, leather briefcases with “College of Charleston” on them, and College of Charleston jewelry. It will also feature scarfs with gates on them and a variety of other gift items. No t-shirts, sweatshirts, textbooks, or magazines will be sold at this location.

For people wanting to see the campus, staff at The College Corner can literally point them down George Street to the Office of Admissions.

Construction is currently expected to finish at the end of July, with an opening date around the start of the 2014 school year.
