Q:Why can’t I find George Mason logo paraphernalia (especially clothes) in local stores? Would it help if I started requesting the items at stores?
A: The lack of George Mason logo merchandise in the community is a supply and demand issue. Asking for the items you’re looking for will help to encourage stores to order and have them in stock. There is a fee to use the university logo but it is paid equally by all suppliers if they want to use our logo, including the items found in the bookstore.— John Spaldo, University Services, (703) 993-2921, firstname.lastname@example.org.
