Missing U

A photograph of Ulrich's Bookstore

The only thing certain in life is that change is inevitable. After serving U-M since 1934 from the corner of South U and East U, Ulrich's iconic location has closed. Along with the other businesses on the north side of South U between East U and Church Street, Ulrich's is moving and taking the letters slowly with it. The buildings will be demolished and replaced with a 10-story high-rise that will house retail businesses on the first two floors and 40 student apartments above.
