Annie's Book Stop

A Holy Cross ID card (or Holy Cross pay stub) shown at the Worcester location of Annie’s Book Stop, at 65 James Street in Worcester, will be good for an additional 10% discount on all books: new, used, vintage, and special orders. Since we start with a 20% discount on new books, which is the best we know of in Massachusetts, this will mean Holy Cross employees, not just students, can now get 30% off retail price on all new books purchased here! At that discount, it should also be a lower price than corporate programs for most book purchases of which we are aware. For used paperback books, the standard 50% we give off cover price will become a 60% discount for all Holy Cross employees, and so on. For nearly all used hardcover books, our maximum price is $3.99, and the discount applies from that price on those books.

HeartWell Institute

The HeartWell Institute in Worcester  is happy to offer Holy Cross faculty and staff with a 20% discount on ALL HeartWell hosted events.  For more offerings, visit their web site at


Bose is pleased to offer additional discounts. Please view the flyer (JPEG) for more information.
