Weshop’s “Secret Menu” goes online

It’s not news to me that Weshop has a special-order catalog. Now that I’m in my senior year, I’ve had some time to hear stories of people ordering from the catalog to economize points by buying in bulk, or to buy brands that Weshop doesn’t stock in-store. I first heard about Weshop bulk ordering in 2015 from Wesleying-er kg, who not only knew the ins and outs of the process… but also found out how to bulk order DivaCups. From Weshop.

But back then, ordering from the catalog wasn’t especially convenient — or well-advertised. Those in the know could venture to the back of the store, where they could look at a catalog in the office and place orders. But, this meant you had to go out of your way just to see the catalog options, and you had to know it was there.

That’s why this year is an exciting time — for the first time in Weshop history, students can access the catalog and place orders online.

Weshop has posted the full ECHO (expanded choices – healthy options) catalog here, with a downloadable order form here. You can find links to these forms and full ordering instructions on Weshop’s Facebook page… which exists, by the way:

It’s worth browsing the catalog’s impressive selection. If you’ve been wishing you could use your points to buy Gefilte fish, frozen gluten-free baguette, several flavors of LaCroix, vanilla chai candied almonds (10 lbs at a time!), or any other natural foods or personal care products, this just might be the thing for you.

I often think about the issue of access to information and resources at Wesleyan, and I am happy to see Weshop making its catalog more accessible by putting it online.
