independent = lowering the cost of education

    As a collaborative of independent campus stores, we believe in:
  • Disrupting the status quo to lower barriers to education and student success
  • Lowering margins on course materials
  • Not profiting from what students need to be successful in the classroom
  • Keeping more dollars on campus to benefit students

We are focused on the success of your institution, your students, and your faculty — not corporate bottom lines.

 independent = knowledge and experience

Backed by our parent company, The National Association of College Stores (NACS), indiCo is a partner you can trust. We have deep knowledge of campus stores and an established network of the industry’s leading vendors. NACS has been a champion of student success, the campus experience, and the academic missions of higher education institutions since 1923.

OUR TEAM
 
We are higher education professionals who know retail, not retailers who pretend to know higher education. We work with you to create a solution tailored to the specific needs of your campus.
