Cold Stone Creamery is about to get some company at its Elm Street location. Fred De Marco, owner of the new building, said Tiger Textbooks plans to open there soon, and he’s in discussions with several other businesses.

“Four or five more business leases are being negotiated within the next couple of weeks,” De Marco said.

Joe Schulz, owner of Tiger Textbooks, said the company will sell athletic gear, decals and MU-related items in addition to selling textbooks at a discounted rate. He also said the business hopes to open in time to sell textbooks to incoming MU students.

“We’re trying our darnedest to get open before the fall semester, but we’ll see how it goes,” Schulz said.

Tiger Textbooks will occupy the middle space on the first floor of the building. The Elm Street location was picked because of its close proximity to campus, he said — “the best location for something that’s going to be for the students.” De Marco said H & R Block will move into the building as well.
