Institutional Sales

In light of the increasing need to protect the health of our employees, until further notice, LE JAMES McGill Bookstore will no longer be shipping orders from our warehouse for technology. We will however be processing drop shipments directly to customers and bulk orders for University Departments/Faculties that have a single delivery address where someone is available on site 9-5 to receive it.

We are making every effort to accommodate orders that have already been placed, but it may not be possible to do so. We will be in touch with each of you to let you know what will be happening with your order.

All customers can expect delays in shipping as our vendors and most delivery services are working with reduced staff. Transport companies are also prioritizing deliveries to businesses that are considered essential services.

We thank you for your understanding during this exceptional time and encourage all of you to do what is necessary to stay safe.



The Institutional Sales Department (former McGill Computer Store - MCS) is dedicated to the support and success of the McGill community. We are committed to the mission of Ancillary Services to provide efficient and quality assistance to McGill staff and departments, as well as the affiliated teaching hospitals of the MUHC.

We work with our customers to find products best suited for their needs, be that computer supplies (hardware, software, and accessories) or general merchandise (clothing, drinkware, and stationery).

Institutional purchases paid via FOAPAL must now be processed through McGill MarketPlace, this is to ensure proper fund owner approval of the expenditure prior to delivery of the purchase.

To proceed with a purchase, you must first contact our sales team at with your enquiry or list of products. We will then contact you to discuss the details of your order and create a quote for you to review.

Once you receive the quote and are ready to place your order, you must log in to McGill MarketPlace and create a requisition. To do this, you must open the shopping cart and select “non-catalog item.” This will prompt you to select your supplier; we are listed as McGill Bookstore and Computer Store. You must attach the quote prepared for you to your requisition and enter the total amount including taxes.

Once the requisition has gone through the appropriate approval process, we will receive an e-mail including the verified PO and we will complete your order.
