C-Store to stay open later until end of semester

The Hungry Johnny C-Store just revamped its late night dining hours by changing its closing time to 3 a.m. seven days a week.
This change went into effect yesterday and will last until May 12.

Previously, the C-Store was open until 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

“Fridays and Saturdays will be a major expansion of hours for the C-Store,” said Gina Capetanaki, Chartwells manager.
“This will be the latest that the C-Store has ever been open for Chartwells.”

In addition to extended hours at the C-Store, the hours at Montgoris and the After Hours Grille will also be extended.
Montgoris Dining Hall will now be open from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. for late night studying.

“Now you have food for your late night studying all in one location,” Capetanakis said.

“We worked with [The division of] Student Affairs to create this program.”

The expansion of hours will also bring new hours for the After Hours Grille.

The After Hours Grille previously was only open on Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m.- 1 a.m. The Grille will now be open seven days a week until 3 a.m.

The addition of late night hours in the C-Store is also combined with the addition of late night study hours in Montgoris Dining Hall.

Some students reacted positively to the changes.

“[The new hours] are great. They are convenient if you have a late class.” said freshman Courtney Scott.

“I think it’s a smart move because it gives the students the opportunity to stay on campus to eat,” said freshman Nicole Musco.
Another student had similar feelings
“I think [the new hours are] good,” said freshman Beth Reichhard.

“It used to be 11:30 on a Saturday and we couldn’t get food.”

However, some students felt that the recent changes are not enough.

“They should have it open earlier instead of late because I can’t get something like toothpaste in the morning,” said Brenna Binghan.
