Durham, NC - With the holiday shopping season in full swing, Duke community members can avoid long lines at the mall by staying right on campus.

Gift options are at Duke Stores, which offer a variety of products ideal for stocking stuffers and more. Whether you're buying a present for a die-hard Duke sports fan, artist or fashion-minded family member, Working@Duke is here to help you spread some cheer with its annual Duke holiday gift guide. These gifts can be found in stores or online at the Duke Stores website.

"During the busy holiday season, with all of the pressures on time and all the things to be done, employees can take advantage of the convenience of on-campus shopping at Duke University Stores," said Jim Wilkerson, director of trademark licensing and Duke Stores. "We offer a wide variety of gifts that suit everyone on a shopping list, from newborns to grandparents and everyone in between."

As a bonus, Duke community members can use a special discount from Dec. 10 to 15 when Duke Stores offers 20 percent off clothing and gift items - with some exclusions.
