In mist of the erection of the new dining hall and resisdence building, there still remains a questionable and timeline and lengthy schedule for the anticipated student run convient store in Gallagher Student Center, told to be in the bottom attrium currently housing Flix. In the past, Student Government Association and the entrepreneural studies center were whispered to be bringing a store this year, but apparently the project was lobbied until further notice. Barlow did not release a timeline for the development of the convenience store, but claimed that more plans concerning the store should be available in the spring. According to Tom Barlow, director of Auxiliary Services, a committee was formed this past spring "to look at the feasibility of placing a convenience store on campus." According to Barlow, if this plan is put into action, it will definitely be considered an improvement of service to students. "The hopes are to allow longer hours and more convenience items to be available on campus to support the students," Barlow said. Previously, Xavier was home to a convenience store entitled "The Snackateer," which was run by the Bookstore and an outside company, eFollett.

"The Snackateer" was located in the old student center before GSC was constructed. When GSC opened, the convenience store was dissolved into or merged with the Bookstore. Similar to the Coffee Emporium and the X Spot, "the direction [of the convenience store] is to develop another student-managed business program, increasing campus student employment, but with corporate administration and supervision, educational development and financial backing," Barlow said.
