OLD WESTBURY, NY -- Students at the State University of New York College at Old Westbury can satisfy their cravings for late night snacks and weekend munchies at the campus's new Shop24 automated convenience store. The giant vending machine is the first of its kind on New York's Long Island and is located in close proximity to the college's new academic building and residence halls.

The Shop24 provides the college's 4,000-plus students round-the-clock access to foods, snacks and beverages, along with cleaning supplies, health and beauty aids and other essentials. Customers can purchase up to seven items at a time and are provided with a receipt at the end of their transaction.

The new Shop24 is operated by the College at Old Westbury Auxiliary Service Corp. and managed by Canteen. It accepts cash, credit and debit cards, and Panther Bucks, student "flex dollars" that can be used at local retail establishments.

"Our college is continually looking for new, improved and innovative ways to meet the expectations of our students," said SUNY Westbury president Calvin O. Butts III. "With access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Shop24 will give our residential students a safe and convenient alternative to leaving campus late at night to make those much needed purchases."

A grand opening is planned for early fall, during which promotional items and free products will be "vended" to lucky participants.
