Don't You know Who We Are?! (And what we do..)

January 13, 2017

Want to get to know us? Now’s your chance! To give you an intro, you may not know but CDU Bookshop is so much more than just a bookshop. We have books (of course) in text, literary, kids, reference and other formats. But did you realise, we also have stationery, diaries, essentials like toiletries, trade equipment, CDU merchandise, graduation gifts, corporate gifts, dictionaries, plush toys, stethoscopes, calculators, gift cards, travel things and a whole heap of other cool stuff. Here’s some other things you might like to know about us……

The Basics

We’re open Monday – Friday 8.30- 4pm. We’re located just across from the Café in red building 1 at Casuarina Campus


The Team

The folks that make up the magic that is CDU Bookshop are ragtag bunch of really interesting  peeps...

Margaret Waterson- James
Our fearless leader, manager extraordinaire and mighty wielder of the cheque books, She can balance budgets, pack orders and prepare a strategic plan all before lunchtime. Margaret is your go to gal for textbook orders, for that hard to find title or even just for a chat. She’s in everyday and then some, so pop in and say hi.

Dee Hona
Customer Service
Dee is the queen of customer service. It is her dulcet tones you will hear if you give us a call, it is her who will track down your lost order with zeal and determination and it is Dee who will go above and beyond to find you exactly what you need to get you through the  semester.  

Rory Jeffs
Stock Control
Master of stock and occasional frequenter of the front counter, Rory is the guy who(among other things) sits out the back and enters, orders and looks after all our stuff. He’s also the guy who posts and packages your orders, and does it with so much love, you WILL feel it when you open your package. Seriously.  Order something now and get ready for the feels.

Sarah Price
Communications Officer

Weaver of webs and captain of communications Sarah, is the one who wrote this post and many of our others on our website. ( check it yo!). She does some other stuff as well, in the interest of telling the world how great CDU Bookshop is.

Zeeda Yasid
Bright, bubbly and bookkeeper extraordinaire, Zeeda is a dab hand with a spreadsheet and the fastest data entry gun in the north. She can rustle up a receipt, play Xero like a xylophone and audit an account like a boss!

The Refunds..( if you must)

Books.We love ‘em. No seriously, we REEALLY love ‘em, and so should you but we get that sometimes you can choose the wrong one, or change your mind. It’s Ok. We love our books so much we’ll happily take them back. But there are a few things you need to know when you return them.

  1. You gotta fill in a form. The admin gods must be appeased! Also it helps us with stock control and other boring but very important things. Download. Fill in. send. Easy!
  2. You must have loved your book as much as we do in the short time you had it so it must be in great shape, including the packaging which should be intact.
  3. You’ll need a receipt. ‘Nuff said
  4. If it’s a textbook you can return it before Census date of the current semester or within 14 days if bought instore or 28 days if bought online for other items. Don’t miss the deadline or all will be lost. Well, not really just get it back to us quickly. Please!!
If you want to get to know us even better, make sure you sign up for our newsletter, like us on facebook or follow us on instagram. Or just pop in and say hi. We'd love to meet you!
