Cal Poly had a really good idea when they put a gift shop downtown. It is really nice for parents or someone who wants to buy a Cal Poly souvenir but does not want to have to deal with the hassle of parking and hiking across the campus. Also, Cal Poly downtown has weekend and evening hours. They sell sweatshirts, t-shirts, license plate frames, shot glasses, etc. Pretty much they sell anything that they can slap the Cal Poly name on. It is a little pricey, but no more than the gift shop on campus. It is much more convenient to go to the downtown shop than to go to the university campus.
