We looked around Facebook and Twitter to give you a peek at how other college stores are celebrating Valentine's Day!

Chico State Wildcat Store

We heart this idea! For 14 days, the store is posting photos of an adorable Teddy Bear who is hidden around campus with the hashtag, #teddythewildcat! Students are encouraged to guess its location by commenting on each unique picture. The individual who has the most correct guesses at the end of the promotion will win Teddy on Valentine's day.


The Co-Op Store

This store is getting fans engaged with a Cutest Longhorn Couple Contest. Participants simply have to post a picture with their significant other in Longhorn gear. The photo that receives the most votes wins and that lucky couple will receive a gift card to the restaurant of their choice and store merchandise! Check out all the fun entries.


BYU Bookstore

Throughout the month of February, the store is inviting students in to write love notes. What makes this extra fun is that the staff is then posting them to Facebook for all to see, so students can get sappy with each other! Take a look at all the sweet nothings they've collected so far.














PCC Bookstore

This store is interacting with fans through a photo contest. Students simply have to post a picture wearing PCC gear to the store's page and the entry with the most 'likes' will win this cute bear!


The Phoenix Bookstore

On February 13, students can pick up a scratch off card in the store that will reveal special savings. They can then use their discount to purchase a perfect gift for their sweetie. Fun!
