During the school year, business was brisk at The Den, Northwestern Lehigh’s school store, but it is now closed until classes resume at the end of August.

The Den sells Northwestern spirit wear, snacks and drinks and by all accounts, business was good.

According to Taylor Page, trail mix and popcorn are the biggest sellers.

“We have stuff we’ve sold for years,” she said.

“Mrs. Mengel decides what to order.”

The store operates under the auspices of Student Council with Patty Mengel as adviser.

“The actual school store managers are Violet Shane and Morgan Bentley,” Chloe Davis said.

Juniors mainly work in the store.

“But mostly, it’s the freshmen who shop,” Davis said. “We’re only open Flex A and B (period).

“Football season is the biggest season for spirit clothing. We sell at football games, too.”

The Den closed its doors June 8 for summer vacation.

Claudia Day said the food would probably sell out. Other items were packed away for the new school year.
