The Body Shop Vending Machine Debuts in HUB

You may have noticed that the useless HUB phone booths have been replaced by a The Body Shop vending machine. The Body Shop recently partnered with ZoomSystems, a company that has similar partnerships with Sephora and Proactiv Solution, to release its products in vendible form.

Penn State spokesperson Lisa Powers said the vending machine was brought in to create some extra revenue for the HUB (without the cost of labor); the extra money will go right back into HUB Operations and student employment. She added that this is a type of service which isn’t available anywhere else in University Park or State College, and that depending on the popularity of The Body Shop machine, the University may consider expanding into additional products.

What kinds of things would you want to buy from vending machines in the HUB?

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
