  • Marketplace. Allows savings of up to 95 percent by connecting students with private vendors.
  • Rental. Upfront savings up to 60 percent off of list price.

“It was a no brainer. We wanted to work with a company with a little more reach. We thought that would be advantageous for our students,” said Store Coordinator Doug Sutton. “[MBS Direct] offers better pricing, better buyback. We’re installing a new MBS POS system, which should make our students experience in our physical locations better as well.”
