Ripon Drug/Ben Franklin official provider of off-line Ripon College merchandise
Ripon Drug/Ben Franklin is now the official provider of off-line Ripon College merchandise. The business is located at 328 Watson St. in downtown Ripon and will provide more consistent staffing and hours than were available at the College’s brick-and-mortar store. Because of the business’ close proximity to campus, many students, faculty, staff and alumni already are patrons.
Online merchandise remains available at ripon.edu/merchandise.
Ripon College Rally Store at Ripon Drug/Ben Franklin offers College-branded items such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, mugs and stickers. More items will be added soon.
“It’s good to maintain a relationship between the College and Ripon Drug/Ben Franklin,” said owner David Gitzel. “We’re promoting Ripon College, and we feel it is necessary to have a downtown location where people can buy Ripon College apparel and merchandise.”
Zach Messitte, president of Ripon College, said, “Ben Franklin is a pillar of the community and it is a bridge between downtown and the College. Our faculty, staff, students and alumni have been shopping at Ben Franklin for more than a generation, and now they’ll be able to buy Ripon College gear right there.”
Store hours at Ripon Drug-Ben Franklin are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday; 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
